Time for Honesty (Vondt i viljen)

Confronted with decisions made in her younger days, Emmelin faces deep remorse and indecisiveness. Trying to justify her actions and make things right, she discovers she's far from the only one withholding the truth and hiding secrets.
Done mourning his late wife, Dennis is ready to return home after years in France. He's devastated when he discovers his childhood sweetheart Emmelin has kept his daughter from him, even if she claims she had his best interest at heart.
Can Dennis overcome his fury and forgive Emmelin for her deceit? And can Emmelin forgive Dennis for withholding essential information that would have changed their lives forever? Can they learn to trust each other again, embrace the future and give their love a second chance?

Å vite eller ikke vite (Time for Surprises)
If the citizens of Solvik thought they'd had their fair share of intrigues and drama in their lovely little town, they couldn't be more wrong! They had yet to meet the colorful Skogen family.
Miranda and her siblings were raised by an eccentric mother, and an absent father who was more concerned about his hotels than his family. When their father suddenly dies, and the inheritance is to be divided, they discover he had very special intentions for his new hotel - and his descendants.
As Sea Breeze Hotel & Spa opens its elegant doors, it's the start of a series of complications and intrigues almost unheard of in the usually peaceful town of Solvik. Not everyone is happy about moving to a place where everyone knows everyone, nor are they satisfied with the jobs they have been assigned to through inheritance - or the conditions that follow.
As the Hotel Manager, Miranda tries to make sure everything runs smoothly. However, the problems are lining up even before the grand opening. Having anticipated some reluctance and skepticism from the locals, she didn't expect to receive even larger resistance from her unemployed husband Vidar, who feels unjustifiably treated. The revenge is sweet, but also bitter and catastrophic, in the greatest drama ever to be played out in the idyllic town.
Kun det beste (Time for Second Chances)
Isabella is living her dream as the proud owner of the flower and gift shop Anemone. But the newly hired summer help - or more correctly her mother - creates more intrigues than expected in the small town of Solvik.
Remy is fed up with stress and drama, and ready to make a new start in many ways. He has resigned from a job as the top chef at a Michelin star restaurant in Oslo, in favor of a new and calmer life on the coast. Little does he know that the summer ahead will bring far more challenges than he'd ever imagined possible.
In other words, exciting times await - as life never gets dull in Solvik!
Looking forward to the next book in this series?
