“A wonderful storyteller! The region of the heart is her territory, and no one travels it better.”—Susan Elizabeth Phillips
From the USA Today bestselling author of Spells & Stitches and Once Around...
After years of lies, loneliness, and betrayal, Alexandra has finally left her wealthy husband in London and moved into her own house in the run-down resort town of Sea Gate, New Jersey, the place of her childhood dreams—and now, her grown-up hopes.
But while patching together her falling-apart house and fallen-apart life, Alex meets someone who throws a wrench into her plans for solitary bliss—John Gallagher, a local resident with his own haunting past and painful secrets. Alex is determined to do what it takes to make it on her own, even working as a waitress at the Starlight Diner. But when her old life catches up with her, she must measure her fiercely independent will against the needs of her own heart. Because this struggling shore town has become her home—and she’ll never let anybody destroy her home again…
