Meredith Adams lost her husband, David, in a tragic motorcycle accident three years ago. Since then, she’s been focused on moving, starting her own business, and raising their teenage son. Now that everything’s settled and with her son leaving for college in a few short months, Meri’s thoughts linger on the past and the future she won’t ever have.
Nick Turner has never stopped loving the girl he met in high school, even after she disappeared from his life. After more than twenty years of waiting and hoping, Nick forced himself to move on, knowing his heart will never let go.
When a group of teenagers bumps into Meri down by the beach, knocking her over and spilling her coffee everywhere, a man with a familiar voice comes to her aid. As Nick goes to help her up, he finds himself looking into the eyes of the one woman he lost all those years ago.
For Meri, their fated reunion reignites old feelings she’d buried long ago.
For Nick, finding Meri is a chance to redeem himself and, if she’ll have him, maybe even build a life with her.
Meri still misses David, but falling in love with Nick again feels natural. For the first time in years, her heart is whole, but misfortune catches up with her. Accidents hit close to home, resurfacing old heartaches and painful memories. Nick is right there to help her through them, until another tragedy strikes, like an echo from the past, crushing her heart as it threatens to take the life of the only other man she’s ever loved.
