New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts deftly
blends romance and suspense in this compelling novel of a woman
whose career, marriage, and very life are threatened by the truth
about her own past.
Emma McAvoy may have grown up in the limelight, but some secrets
are hidden in a darkness no light can reach. Now on the verge of a
successful career, and having fallen in love with the man of her
dreams, Emma is looking to the future. Yet it?s the past that is
about to catch up with her.
For Emma, her childhood had been almost like a rags-to-riches
fairy tale?until the tragic night that changed her family forever.
But what Emma thinks she knows about that terrible night and the
man she?s about to marry is only half the truth. The other half is
locked away in the last place she?d ever think to look: her own
memories. It?s a mystery a handsome and relentlessly driven
homicide detective needs to solve in a case that?s haunted him for
years?and a secret someone will kill to keep.
