Lately, Alcea's mind is focused on her dwindling funds. That's all about to change after her car accident with high school crush Dakota Jones. After leaving town upon graduation, he's returned 20 years later to settle his grandfather's estate. Unbeknownst to him, his half-sister Florida is responsible for Alcea's divorce.

Now Dak and Alcea cross paths often, and the sparks they felt years ago again take fire. But Dak's lifestyle is not conducive to staying in one place, and Alcea can't uproot herself from her home and family.

This second installment in the O'Malley sisters trilogy takes place four years after Sing Me Home, the first in Corgiat's series. How Alcea deals with her ex-husband and her feelings for his mistress are intriguing and believable. Her romance with Dak, and his struggle to come to terms with his past, make for an interesting and worthy story. (Nov., 364 pp., $6.99)
