Romance, mystery and magic, with a touch of spine-tingling suspense …

Summer of Secrets

Book 1 of the Rosshaven Romances

Mia Flanagan has never been told who her father is and, aged ten, stopped asking. Now she keeps her own secrets.
But when the movie she’s working on ends in disaster, she flies home to discover her fiancé has a secret too; leaving her
dreams crushed.

Broken-hearted, a lonely summer in London looms. Until family friend, Archie Fitzgerald, invites her to stay at his fading mansion on Ireland’s ancient east coast. For Archie also has a secret, and the longer Mia stays, the more she wonders if Archie really is her father after all…

Summer of Secrets is a tale of how the ghost of love can blight many lives. And how Mia, realising the past cannot hurt her, must make way for new love and the promise of happiness waiting in the wings.

‘I was mesmerised by this utterly fabulous, incredibly well-written and masterfully plotted novel and I loved it. Be prepared for a wonderful journey. It is a lovely book and I highly recommend it.’

What readers say

    Compelling and magical story

    Long after you have finished this novel, and the credits roll, you will be thinking about the magic of this story and its layers of meaning, behind the scenes.

    Pacy, suspenseful page-turner

    I read this book in a matter of days. It’s fresh, pacy and allows the reader to escape between the (seemingly) glamorous world of film & TV, and the rugged coastline of Ireland.

    A joy to read …

    Another top read from Adrienne Vaughan. The title alone made me want to dive in to the story. Adrienne’s talent for creating engaging, entertaining characters, some of them warm, some witty, some wonderfully whacky, but all memorable, gets stronger with every book she writes.


    I enjoyed this novel as I have al of this author’s other work. It had everything I love in a romance: family, intrigue and a happy ending but with the prpomise of more to come in the sequel. I have just downloaded it and am looking forward to getting stuck in with it this weekend.
