The cat was back.

Vera stood, bin in hand, at the kitchen door of the old Federation building she’d just signed a lease on and met the cat’s stare with one
of her own.

‘Scram,’ she said, as she tipped the rubbish she was carrying into the alley skip bin. She was too tired to put much heat into the word.

The cat paused in a puddle of spring sunshine then settled into a brick of fur.

    Synopsis

    Vera De Rossi no longer believes in love. And thanks to her ex-boyfriend­ she's also broke, jobless, and staring down the barrel of a court case that could land her in prison. Turning to her talent for baking, Vera opens a cafe in Hanrahan, a cosy tourist town in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains. Josh Cody, once Hanrahan's golden boy, escaped sixteen years ago with gossip hard on his heels and a pregnant girlfriend in tow. Now he's back: a qualified veterinarian - and a single dad with a lot to prove. A new start and a grumpy teenage daughter ... it's a lot to juggle, and there's no room in his life for further complications. But that's before he walks into The Billy Button Cafe and meets its prickly owner. Reeling from the past, Vera has no intention of being sidetracked by the hot vet with a killer smile. But fate has a way of tripping up our best intentions and between a stray cat and a busybody with a heart of gold, this is a town - a family - unlike any other. And, whether Vera wants it or not, is there anything a family won't do to help one of its own?
