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?
