A colourful romantic mystery set in Southern Spain.
Art historian Ashley Bourne finds her emotions turned upside down as she seeks solace and forgetfulness in the pretty hill village of Pozos Secos where secrets and lies, mystery and danger abound. And the village wells keep drying up.
As she strives to solve the mystery of missing paintings and heirlooms, Ashley is torn between her deep feelings for financial wizard Tom Kerr and charismatic aristocrat, Francisco Romero. Is Fran the saint everyone believes him to be or a gentleman thief as Tom suspects?
Only after she has experienced the dangers of rogues, revolvers, fire, flood, wild boar and earth tremors, will she find the answers she has been seeking.
