About this ebook

“I just couldn't put it down… had my heart broken into pieces and put it back together in every chapter.” Nicki's Book blog, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


As the newspaper clipping falls from the cardboard box Tegan takes in the woman in the picture: her chestnut hair, her eyes full of laughter, the way she nestles against the man beside her. And as she reads the words in the article, Tegan almost stops breathing. Was coming here a terrible mistake?


When Tegan’s family is torn apart by a terrible tragedy, she runs away in search of somewhere to keep safe from the past that haunts her, and the painful secrets she’s never told anyone. Arriving in Copper Canyon, Colorado, where wooden storefronts line the quiet streets and no-one knows her name, Tegan breathes easy for the first time in years. And when she grows close with Jack, another lost soul who won’t talk about his home, it seems she’s found the perfect companion to explore the mountain landscapes with.  


But just as Tegan starts to think maybe safety isn’t a place, it’s a person, she notices the box of photos and newspaper clippings that Jack takes everywhere in the trunk of his car. Who is the woman in every frame? And why does she look so familiar…?


Tegan knows the only way to protect herself, and keep her dark family history locked away, is to discover more about the woman in Jack’s photos. But when she does, will the truth help her build a new life, or will it send her running once more?


An absolutely unforgettable and breathtaking novel about love, loss, and the secrets we’re all hiding. Perfect for fans of Kerry Fisher, Diane Chamberlain, and Kerry Lonsdale.

Tegan has had a difficult life. Her mother left her and her older brother when she was a child. Her father is an alcoholic. The one positive in her life is her older brother Jamie. Right now, Jamie is ill and needs the solace of country and small-town life, something Tegan has dreamed of since she was a child and had the best time of her life with a grandmother. in her country home. Looking for that again, Tegan sets off across the country in search of that kind of peace. After a brave stance with a molester, she meets Jake and embarks on the journey of a lifetime, for both of them. Unknown to Tegan, her rich traveling friend Jake has faced trauma of his own. He is driving his luxury SUV (full of artifacts from his other life) across the country to return to his family and the main office of his law practice. They are an unlikely pair that start on an incredible journey that provides solace and friendship for both. Can they overcome the many obstacles in their relationship, fraught with differences and challenges but fed by love and connection of the heart and soul? I loved this book. Refreshing characters, beautiful travel scenery, love, romance, family, and at the center of it all what we all want, a break from trauma hardship, and life. A really good read that I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend. Thanks to #TheGirlInThePicture#NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review this book.
