Once times thrice, I bind thine heart
to mine, to hold, to never part.

Scribbled words on parchment found under her mother's bed - they couldn't possibly mean anything, even if her mum is a white witch. But to fifteen-year-old wild child, Meredith Goodwill, they meant the world when she uttered them to Jamie, the fun-loving boy who stole her heart that last summer she spent in Cornwall.

Thirteen years later and now a straight-laced accountant in London, the words have been forgotten; the summer a faded memory ... until Meredith stands at the altar on her wedding day, looks the man she's about to give her heart to in the eye, and calls him Jamie.

Her wedding is in tatters. To appease her hurt fiancé, and at her mother's insistence, Meredith's new focus is to track Jamie down and reverse whatever she unwittingly did when she spoke those words from her mother's spell. But how will she convince him to believe in 'magic' so he can help her undo it?

That's the least of her worries, because Jamie hasn't forgotten her, and the cheeky, brown-eyed boy with the messy locks is now the ballsy, smoky-eyed man with the tousled, bed-me hair.

It's summer all over again ... and the spell is far from finished.

The Spell of Summer will be hurtling into your life
