The Secret Path

Author(s): Karen Swan

Location(s): Costa Rica

Genre(s): Fiction, Romance

Era(s): Contemporary

Sunday Times bestselling author Karen Swan returns with The Secret Path, taking us deep into the heart of the Costa Rican jungle – complete with all her trademark romance, glamour, and jaw-dropping twists.

At just twenty years old, Tara Tremain has everything: she’s a trainee doctor, engaged to the man of her dreams – a passionate American biology student called Alex Carter. But just when life seems perfect, Alex betrays her in the worst way possible.

Ten years later, she’s moved on – with a successful career, good friends and a man who loves her. But when she’s pulled back into her wealthy family’s orbit for an unmissable party in the heart of Costa Rica, she finds herself flung into crisis: a child is desperately ill and the only remedy is several days’ trek away, in the heart of the jungle.

There’s only one person who can help – but it’s the man who shattered her heart a decade before. And how can she trust him, of all people?
