Publisher's Summary

Sara Hawthorne is a dedicated attorney, a loyal wife, and the mother of two 19-year-old girls. When her husband succumbs to cancer, Sara has to battle the grief and also the addiction to which one of her daughters falls prey.
Maximus Tempest is business driven and family starved. Eager to get his estranged wife to sign the divorce papers so he can move on with his life, he is frustrated when she is taken to the hospital after overdosing and wants no part of her treatment.
When Sara and Max see each other after 20 years, old feelings spring to life, but with the whirlwind of problems that surround them, how could it possibly work? Secrets are revealed from the grave that could threaten any future they might have, and it will be up to Sara and Max to see if they can overcome the lies, or if they must bury their dreams of a relationship forever.

Just Loved it!

This is not the first book by Stacy Eaton that I've read and it won't be the last either.

Max and Sara's story is so emotionally engaging that I could not stop listening. There is so much that happen in this book, just when I thought things were going smoothly something will happen to turn it all on it's head.

Sara is an amazing character, her strength is impressive as is her ability to care.
Max is stubborn and reactive and reminds me way too much of myself (not to self: work on that), but he's also caring and has all the time in the world for the people that he cares about.

The supporting cast is pretty great as well, I would love to have someone like George in my life, he would have earned brownie points a number of times during the story if it was real life.

The dual narration worked really well, the two parts joined together seamlessly. Both narrators did great character voices and the pace and tone was consistent the whole way through. Lovely to listen to.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Wonderful story!

This book was one of the best books I have read in a long time. Sara is dealing with the grief of losing her husband to cancer, and her twin daughters are dealing with it in their own way. When one of them becomes withdrawn, Sara knows there is more to it. Then she sees Max again after many years. The chemistry between them is amazing. Max still has feelings for Sara, as does Sara for him. Can they work through the secrets that rise from the grave? Oh, this book was so very good, and I was sad for it to end. I really enjoyed listening to this narrator as well. I definitely recommend this book!

Real life story

This is my first book from Stacy.

If you’re looking for a real hearted story this is great.
Although a very emocional one, that deals with alcohol, drugs, infidelity and what can you ask more, life changing secrets...

Just a few chapters in, you already care about what happens to the characters. It is very real.
It can be your neighbor story, it can be yours.

It seems to concentrate on second chances, after tragedies, after wrong that seemed right then decisions.

First love, true love and tough love.
The one thing that glues all together is hope.

I was asked to give it a listen and leave a review.

The dual narration was great although a felt some difficulty in earing Max’s friend.

Enjoyed this ride very much.

Wonder what next from this author.

I was in two minds about this listen as I only lost my husband to cancer last year so was a little iffy
The story of a mother with her two daughters following the loss of her husband ...she then re establishs a relationship with her first love , there’s a couple of twists in this well written book but the speed in which she finds love again is too fast personally for me .
The narrration is a real performance which I find so important when listening as it can so easily break a book but if the performance of thi# had not been so good not so sure I would have continued as I did have a speed issue but pleased I did

I was gifted this book in exchange for a honest review
