In nearby Daylesford, police officer, John Franklin, is investigating a spree of vandalism and burglaries, while champing to trade his uniform for the plain clothes of a detective.
When Georgie's story and Franklin's cases collide, she not only finds herself back in conflict with the man she's been trying to forget since their first encounter, but she uncovers the truth about how the fires started - a truth no-one is wanting to believe.
