"After her husband is killed, Kirsty puts her life on hold, focusing on her work and living with her obsessive brother. Then she meets Ed James, a lonely old man whose sole surviving relative cares only about his money. Though dying, Ed still has a few tricks up his sleeve. He leaves Kirsty all his money and his vineyard estate, but on the condition she lives in Western Australia for at least a year without her bother. A skilled matchmaker, Ed also suggests Kirsty considers marrying her neighbour, Sam. This is going too far. She has no plans to marry again, thank you very much. Neither has Sam. Maybe Ed has got this match wrong. But one thing is certain, Kirsty's move to Australia will change her life forever."--Jacket
