Renowned Chef Charlie Hennessey needs a break. Tired of the noise of Manhattan and afraid the big city and its cynical outlook has jaded her thoroughly, she packs up her babies and returns home to Camden, Maine. The quiet coastal town holds memories of loved ones, offers space for her children to roam, and is the only place she longs to be. Here she hopes to recharge and reacquaint herself with who she is, what she wants, and how to love again.
Award-winning author Jonathan Hennessey has roamed the world several times over in the an attempt to outrun the ghosts of his past. The last thing he ever wanted was to return to Camden, Maine, until he finds himself not only there but on the doorstep of the only woman he has ever loved... and ultimately destroyed. But how could he look his only friend and lover in the eye and admit his sins when he can't even look at himself?
As the keeper of most of Jonathan's secrets, Charlie now holds one of her own. One that can and will destroy them. But some secrets aren't meant to be kept, and for the man who spins tale after tale of murder, mystery, and love, this is a twist even his devilish mind could never conjure up.
