The whole town is convinced that Craig Lofgren murdered his missing wife, even though his son Brett claims that MOMMY SAID GOODBYE (4.5). Only Brett's teacher, Robin McKinnon, is willing to look beyond the rumors and reach out to Craig and his two children. But Craig will not be free to love her until he can prove the impossible: that supermom Julie abandoned her children with no warning or explanation. Well-drawn characters and a deftly handled subplot about the female detective who solves the case make Janice Kay Johnson's book a real page-turner.
