Secrets of the Heart

Secrets of the Heart


Get tangled up in love in the delightful and compelling romance from bestselling author Elizabeth Buchan

Agnes Campion is 30 when she inherits Flagge House from her uncle.

Whilst struggling with its upkeep, Agnes is also busy looking after her elderly aunts, juggling her work, and nursing a bruised heart. So she certainly doesn't bank on falling for handsome property developer Julian, whose job is everything she despises, and who has a mistress of his own.

Nor does Agnes imagine that stoical Andrew, whose organic farm is being wrenched away from him by a planning application, will fall for her too.

Slowly, surely, a love quartet is developing . . .

But relationships are messy things, and only two people can find happiness at the end of it all.

Secrets of the Heart
is the captivating and electrifying novel from bestselling author Elizabeth Buchan.
