Noelle Dubois had the perfect life. She'd studied in Paris, became a pastry chef at a vineyard, and had the love and support of both parents.
In an instant, all that changed and now she's back home in New York, without a job, taking care of her eight-year-old brother and living with her aging grandparents while waiting for her mother's murderer to stand trial.
Six months of limbo.
Six months of waiting.
Six months to learn that all she ever dreamed about has gone up in smoke.
Sean Vines has dealt with his past and moved on.
He has goals and dreams, and only time and hard work will see them accomplished.
Things are good until a pastry chef and an eight-year-old boy churn up the memories from his childhood, and he learns that some things don't stay buried permanently, no matter how much he may want them too.
Except this time it isn't Sean who is facing horrific circumstances, but a child, and it's his turn to step up and be that adult to help get him through this special kind of hell. And just maybe, he'll find a lot more than he dreamed possible.
The funny thing about dreams, they can be altered by the people you meet, and that's when you realize that maybe you just hadn't dreamed big enough.
