A young woman takes a DNA test on a whim and discovers the birth father—and half sisters—she never knew. New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Ryan returns with this dramatic and page-turning novel perfect for fans of Colleen Hoover and Lori Foster.
A DNA test tells you who you come from, not who you are.
All her life, Summer Sutherland felt like the missing piece in a puzzle, left out and looking for the place she truly belongs. And when an at-home DNA test reveals her selfish mother and well-meaning grandfather lied about her father, Summer sets out to discover the truth.
Her new instant family comes with two half sisters: one who accepts her with open arms, the other resistant to the stranger staying in their house. But somehow Summer senses this is where she is meant to be—so she settles into her father’s Carmel home, ready to get to know them and find her place in the family she always wanted.
But while her newfound parent is thrilled to get to know Summer—and her romantic connection to his business partner, Cody, heats up—tensions rise within the family.
Will she ever fit in? Or should she return to her other life before tearing all their lives apart?
Bestseller Ryan (Surrendering to Hunt) takes readers on an emotional journey of familial reconciliation in this dramatic contemporary romance. Summer Sutherland, 25, is miserable. She has financial security and privilege thanks to her adoring business mogul grandfather, but she's never felt a sense of stability or belonging. Due to her flighty, selfish mother, Jessica, Summer's never known her father and spent her childhood bouncing "from home to home, school to school, and stepfather to stepfather." All that time, Jessica's kept a massive secret: she knows exactly who Summer's father is, and where Summer can find him. When the truth finally comes out, Summer goes looking for him—and finds a whole new family. It's a whirlwind of revelations, love, and long-simmering resentment. Amid all the chaos, Summer finds refuge in her budding connection with Cody, her father's business partner whom he's always treated like a son. Their chemistry is instant and intense—and together they navigate the murky waters of family secrets, past hurts, forgiveness, and new beginnings. The romance is endearing, but it's the complex and affecting family drama that will really hook readers. Colleen Hoover fans should check this out.
