Disappointed, she assented. And understood. After all, he’d only stepped off a plane after twenty-four hours two days ago, to see his father for the first time in such a long time. “No worries. I let the boys know. Skye moved away a few years ago.”
His look told her that the name didn’t ring a bell, either.
“You’ve really been hit hard with jetlag.”
He scratched the back of his neck. “Sorry for that.”
“Is there a Mrs. Delaney?” Emily tried to sound as casual as possible, but wasn’t sure whether it’d come across that way. The expression on his face revealed a touch of disbelief.
“You should know better than me. After all, you’ve known Jack longer than me.”
Emily didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “I meant you,” she finally replied in a whisper, hoping not to put more salt in what seemed an open wound.
The expression on his face changed to pained, his lips turned downwards. “My surname is Walsh. And no, there’s no Mrs. Walsh.”
When Connor Walsh, a business lawyer in London, receives news that his estranged father is terminally ill, he returns to Fermosa Bay, a little coastal town in Australia. With the memories of his childhood years tucked away in the back of his mind, he finds his father and kindergarten friends rallying around to remind him of the past. But he’s unprepared for the growing attraction he feels for Emily, and it doesn’t take long for Connor to feel regret that his life could have been so much different.
Emily Bradshaw has waited for over twenty years to see Connor again. And although he can’t remember her, let alone their first kiss, her childhood crush is still in full swing. Eager to pick up where they left off as children, she’s determined to enjoy the short time he is in Fermosa Bay, accepting her heart will break when he returns to his life in London.
Will the echoes of the past lure him into staying in Fermosa Bay?

This excerpt really raises questions about what happened in his early life to make him so bitter.
We’ll find out soon, Jan. Thanks for stopping by.
Always good to ask if there’s a Mrs. I am so intrigued by what happened to destroy his early memories!
LOL – yes re the Mrs 🙂 Thanks Linda.
This is right when he gets off the plane. I assume. that’s why she doesn’t yet know his name.
Ed – this is a couple of days after he arrived in Australia. The confusion with the name is based on Emily assuming he has the same name as his biological father, not his stepfather. Hope that makes a bit more sense now.
I’m looking forward to more of this. I like this guy!
My “hooks” are working 🙂 Thanks Kayelle.
