    Summary

    “The good news is,” Owen finally says, and from the way his shoulders slump, Dani’s not sure she believes him, “we’re not alone out here anymore, are we? We’ve got you, and Flora,” his eyes find Flora’s in the rearview mirror and she beams, wide and bright, her eyes sparkling in the afternoon sunlight, “and Miles, and Jamie now, too.”

    “Jamie?”

    “Yeah,” Owen shifts in his seat, “she’s the, uh…” he waves a hand, at once vague and clarifying as he turns, the steering wheel gliding smoothly beneath his other, “the… Security specialist? The one Henry hired.”

    Right, Dani thinks dumbly, the trappings of circumstance rushing back to her, that.

    It’s this, this, that Dani hadn’t signed up for.

    Dani Clayton had not signed up for a… Jamie.

    Summary

    “The woman was nonchalant with that little smirk on her face, hooked at one end in such a way that it kindled a glimmer in those eyes that Dani could never miss nor forget. Her gait was no faster than a saunter, exhausted yet collected as she trudged up the steps, hand lax against the railing. Really, she was simple. There’s nothing that remarkable about a tired woman walking up the stairs, but it shocked Dani to her core.”

    Summary

    Jamie's always known she was destined to screw up, and getting arrested definitely fits under the screwup category. Her adopted parents are there to bail her out, only to pack her up and send her off to a fancy private school in the United States where she will live with her brother Owen, the same brother she hasn't forgiven for leaving her behind to start his career. And just as she expects, she hates it there. She hates Owen and his luxurious flat, hates Bly Academy, and she especially hates Edmund O'Mara and his obnoxiously pretty blonde girlfriend, Danielle.

    Moving to Vermont is the worst thing that's ever happened to Jamie. Until she finds out there's much more to Danielle than meets the eye, and she realizes that maybe moving to Vermont was exactly what she needed.
