When Lauren Keegan met Cassie Burkett on a Yangtze River cruise, they immediately clicked. Cruise over, they kept in touch, and rapidly became close friends. The following year they’re reunited for a visit which ends with a spontaneous kiss that surprises them both. That one kiss destroys their friendship, sending them back to their lives—and their partners—heartsick and remorseful.
Ten years later everything—and nothing—has changed. While the path is now clear for them to reignite the old flame, the time still seems all wrong. Cassie is unable to break through the emotional walls separating her from both her estranged son and her rediscovered love, while Lauren is overcome with revelations about her late partner that shatter her belief in destiny and romance.
Challenged by the past and besieged in the present, the only thing going for them is the one thing they’ve denied all these years: love.
With an unforgettable journey through China as backdrop for a story of fated love, Robbi McCoy, author of Waltzing at Midnight and Not Every River returns with a decade-spanning romance that explores first impressions, second chances and perhaps third time’s the charm.
