A Tide Too High synopsis

When expat New Zealander and front-woman for international band Polar Blaze collapses on stage, she is issued an ultimatum. Change your lifestyle or pay the price.
Mac Morgan has built her entire life around working hard to prove she's a success. She doesn't know how to slow down. She disappears from media scrutiny and spends time recuperating at a private beach in the far north of New Zealand, a large coastal property owned by the Stanford family.

London-based Alec Stanford wants what his twin brother has: a home, a wife and children. But just because he's one of the world's most successful businessmen doesn't mean he's good at personal relationships. After his beautiful socialite wife files divorce papers, he thinks maybe he's just not marriage material. But he's not prepared for the chance meeting with a burnt-out rock star who's hiding out from the media.

A chance meeting that has devastating results.

A Tide Too High is a New Zealand novel about relationships, misplaced loyalty and being strong enough to believe in yourself.
