Ireland Book 1
Dublin. Grace sees her boyfriend everywhere. In the supermarket, on the street, at the graveyard. Only Henry died two months earlier, leaving a huge hole in Grace's heart and in her life. But then Andy, a man who looks exactly like Henry, turns up to fix her boiler one day. She isn't hallucinating - he really does look like Henry and Grace becomes captivated by him. Reminded of everything she once had, can Grace recreate that lost love or does loving Andy mean letting go of Henry?
