Nina Todd’s life is ordinary. She is loved and supported by the solid Charlie and tolerated by his ageing, difficult mother. If there are certain questions that remain unanswered about her, they are questions Charlie is too kind to bring himself to ask. When Nina meets a good-looking stranger in a hotel, it is the kind of business-conference adulterous encounter that she is keen to forget. But it soon becomes clear that he doesn’t feel the same way, and when he starts to turn up everywhere, handsome, worrying, distracting, her life begins slowly to come apart at the seams. But who is he? And is it pure infatuation that means he won’t let her out of his sight? There are some secrets that can’t be kept forever.
