Emma is young and was in love with her husband. They had a beautiful baby boy then while on assignment he loses his life. Emma is devastated. If it was not for the help of both hers and Max's parents and her friends she would not have made it through. She finally decides to move back home to Florida with her family. She eventually gets a job and makes some wonderful new friends. Along with these friends she meets the handsome doctor Alec. Emma doesn't know what to think of her feelings for Alec. She was madly in love with Max and never thought that she could feel that way again but there is something about Alec that makes her feel again.

It has just been Alec and his daughter for a year now. When he meets Emma his is surprised by how attracted he is to her. Once he meets her he seems to run into her everywhere. He finally stops fighting the attraction and the more time they spend together the deeper he falls for her. But things don't seem to be the way that they seem on Alec's end.

My Opinion:

I was totally enamored with the first books that this one is based off of. Brenda is an amazing writer and she delivers some amazing stories that are deeply emotional and suspenseful. This book was no exception. As with the others once I started reading this book I could not put it down. Emma's character is such a beautiful person and should be able to find love again and seems to have found that with Alec. But then Brenda had to throw in a twist at the end with a cliff hanger! Now I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series. There is no way that I can stop at book one and not know what happens! I definitely recommend reading this book!
