A substantially revised and expanded version of The Bride Wore A Forty-Four.
She’s empty inside…
While celebrating her engagement with her fiancé in Africa, a bomb in a marketplace steals Kira’s life away.
Kira wakes from a coma with a steel plate in her head, and not a lot else. And it’s too easy to let herself flow in the current of her mother’s tender care. Her wedding plans go merrily on and she can’t work up the least bit of enthusiasm about it.
In fact, she only starts to feel alive again in the presence of her gorgeous wedding planner.
Eventually she goes in search of her old life and finds a wardrobe of denim and leather, and a small arsenal.
Who was she, before the bombing? She asks it of her reflection. And suddenly there’s a bad-ass version of herself looking back at her, and she wonders if she really wants to know.
