Joolz Denby's fourth novel is a dark tale of dangerous infatuation, set against the idyllic backdrop of the Cornish surfing village of Polwenna. Astra Sharp has dropped out of college to look after her MS-stricken mum. She has a part-time job in the cafe run by her best friend Connie, and a boyfriend who plays in a local band. Life's not perfect, but it's not too bad - and if golden surfer boy Luke just noticed she existed, then maybe it would be perfect after all. Then Connie's little sister Angel shows up and everything falls apart.
It's not Angel's fault. After all who could blame her for being beautiful? It isn't Angel's fault if everyone falls in love with her - gorgeous Luke, boring Tim the accountant, Astra's kid sister Gita. But as Angel's stay lengthens into weeks everything in Polwenna curdles - the weather turns grey and flat and there's madness in the air. Nothing short of a storm will clear the air, but when the storm comes it brings terrible violence in its wake.
