Fearing that she has killed her abusive husband, Sara Bradbury leaves London and travels north until her car breaks down in front of Matt Seton's house. Matt offers Sara a place to stay until her car is fixed. Seeing how his daughter Rosie takes to Sara, he asks her to stay on as her nanny. Soon Sara begins to care for them as her family. When her true identity comes to light and she discovers that she didn't kill her husband, which life will Sara choose? While the characters are very interesting and the storyline has potential, the beginning conflict thread in Anne Mather's HOT PURSUIT (2) is nearly forgotten.
