From Amazon bestselling author Lauren Faulkenberry.
Thirty-one-year old Enza has finally found love with sexy firefighter Jack, and through him, she has gained a family, years after her mother abandoned her. With her friend Kate in town, Enza’s looking forward to her first Christmas in Bayou Sabine, surrounded by those she cares about most.
But instead, the holiday brings disaster. One guest puts someone Enza loves in danger, and threatens her bond with Jack. Another guest brings news that makes Enza question the circumstances surrounding her mother’s disappearance and doubt everything she believed to be truth about her parents. Enza, fleeing Jack and the turmoil in Bayou Sabine, sets off with Kate on a road trip that could bring her solace—or might destroy everything she’s built.
Will she put to rest the mystery of her mother’s disappearance and find the strength to accept the truth? Can she return home in time to save everything that’s important to her and salvage her relationship with Jack?

Three years ago, Jessie Taylor had the best summer of her life after running from her cheating boyfriend and taking time for herself. She’d escaped to her family’s beach house in Cape Cod to lick her wounds and heal, vowing to never open herself up like that again. Never trust anyone but herself.
Then she met Ryan James, the sexy firefighter next door who set her on fire with just a touch. They melted together, soothed each other’s hurts. She felt too much. It scared her. She ran.
Now, Jessie’s still alone and her entire life has gone up in flames. It’s a miracle she’s even alive. Ryan saved her… she couldn’t believe it was him. She didn’t realize he lived so close.
Fate can be kind or cruel. It can give a gift and then take it away.
Jessie had tried to run from fate her entire life. There would be no running from it this time.
