"How far would you go to make your lover's dreams come true?"Spirited Perdita Miggs is thrilled when her bland marine-biologist husband, Perry, gets a grant to spend the summer studying Loch Ness. Home to her alma mater, Scotland is also the place where seventeen years ago Perdita fell in love with Highland poet Andrew Macgruer.At the bed-and-breakfast where Perdita and Perry are staying lives an eccentric pair of sisters, Kira and Catitlin. Among the unexpected guests are Breton Trent, Kira's old flame, and Andrew, whose allure has only improved with age.Recognizing in Kira's thwarted love an example of her own, Perdita works to bring the couple together again. In the process she finds herself growing ever closer to Andrew. Perry's subsequent anguish, however, incidentally coincides with an illness that seems to affect her heart. As three sets of love triangles hurtle toward final conclusions, the marine biologist's quest for the legendary creature of Loch Ness becomes the central metaphor for the secrets that glide beneath the surface of us all.

This book makes a lovely summer read. It is a romance with a twist. The prose is slow and meandering. It is good to savour each and every word just to make the story last.
