Publisher's Summary

Secrets aren't meant to be told. They're meant to disguise, ruin or enhance something that's the honest-to-God truth.
The only real thing going for Kelinda Milliken is her grant work at the University of Texas in Austin, where she examines specimens day after day with a vaccine for HIV in sight.
That is until Kelinda finds herself home in Edgewood, Maine to bury her mother and settle her very wealthy estate. Although Maine is the last place she wants to be, she finds herself trapped in her past while going through her mother's things to find all the secrets she'd kept from Kelinda for years.
Rory McCary, a professional snowboarder, has never forgotten his first true love. Even though he's set to walk down the aisle to a beautiful, amazing woman, he can't get the past out of his head.
Rory's hang-ups over the past reaches a boiling point when he realizes his ex-girlfriend, Keely, is back in town and dealing with a life-altering hardship.
With every attempt to avoid her, he finally gives in to face the only woman who ever walked away from him only to find out that everything that happened was a lie.
Secrets aren't meant to be told but if they are discovered, it can not only ruin but obliterate everything you ever knew about life.

Interesting and original

This story had so many twists and turns that my head was spinning. I really enjoyed that this story kept moving and there were so many secrets around the bend, but the big mystery kept a mild angst going until the end. Such a great story by Alisa Mullen. I loved the characters of snowboarder Rory and science-nerd Keely. They complimented each other in every way and were very relatable characters.
First listen for Aria Abienta and she was perfect fit for the younger characters. She did a wonderful job distinguishing characters and I would definitely listen to her again.

Loved this story

Where to begin. This was quite an emotional roller coaster. It's starts out as a cute high school first love story. Kelinda and Rory, two total opposites but seem so right for each other. They find each other in the most unusual way and continuo their loving relationship until one day a letter changes everything. Their hopes and dreams destroyed they live their separate life's miles apart from each other. When an unexpected turn of events brings them back together only to complicate things more then anyone could have ever imagined. Will they get a second chance at happiness together? Will they be able to overcome the immense obstacles in their path? What an incredible story of two people so meant for each other but pulled apart by the people they loved. I could not put it down. A definite recommend.
