Jane Blythe about this book: Something in storytelling that has always interested me is how characters react to the big events in their lives, particularly traumatic ones, and the impact those events have on them. These big events impact people for the rest of their lives, and it is one of the things I like to explore when developing a character.
Lila Abbott loses almost everything in the world she holds dear in one foul swoop when a trip to the grocery store ends in disaster, her five year old son is shot dead in front of her and her infant daughter is taken by carjackers. Tessa Micah Bell is also about to lose everything that she holds dear. Her husband disappears without a trace just days after she finds out that she is pregnant with their first child. Tessa believes that Parker would never walk out on her, but the rest of her family and friends believe otherwise. With no one to turn to for help Tessa will do whatever it takes to get her husband back alive, including risking her own life and the life of her unborn baby. Detective Skylar Wyatt must balance finding the Abbott baby, while trying to comprehend how his best friend could walk out without a word, all the while dealing with Tessa's increasingly irrational and fragile emotional state.
