She believed that nothing could ever tear them apart. Until it did.
Years later, when news of Cole's murder reaches Sophie, she completely snaps. She will tear down heaven and earth to find his killer, even enlisting the help of her ex-military ex-boyfriend.
But the more she gets involved with the investigation, the more she puts herself at risk...
When Cole was nine years old, he watched his whole family burn to death in a house fire. He became obsessed with architecture, and rebuilding his life.
Sophie became his secret weapon. Protecting her was his purpose. But Sophie was a damaged girl right from the start, and it was easy to scare her away.
In the end, he was unable to save her from her enemies, or from herself...
Now, she is beyond terrified as she stands to lose the one thing that gave her hope for a better future.
She knows that she can pull through her physical and psychological difficulties, if only someone would stand by her. But with her father and sister occupied with their own struggles in another state, she has no family she can lean on. Her only options are to turn to Brad, a ruthless lawyer mainly concerned with dollar signs, or Owen, a kind doctor with a jealous and spiteful long-term girlfriend.
With or without help from the frustrating men in her life, Carmen will have to find the strength inside herself to carry on. She must make one final journey to say goodbye to her husband once and for all, and lay the past to rest forever.
But when Carmen uncovers startling information about what really led to her husband's death, everything changes...
