"Impossible to put down.”
—Publishers Weekly («Starred Review«)
Six months after Lanie Jacobs' husband's death, she's desperate to make a fresh start and impulsively takes a job at the family-run Capriotti Winery. At first, she feels like an outsider among the boisterous Capriottis. With no real family of her own, she's bewildered by how quickly they all take her under their wing and make her feel like she belongs. Especially Mark Capriotti, a gruffly handsome Air Force veteran turned deputy sheriff who manages to wind his way into Lanie's cold, broken heart.
Everything is finally going well for her, but the arrival of River Brown changes all that. The fresh-faced twenty-one-year old seems as sweet as they come...until her dark secrets come to light—secrets that could destroy the new life Lanie's only just begun to build.

"With a fast pace and a lovely mix of romance and self-discovery, Shalvis's novel is chock-full of magnetic characters and seamless storytelling, rich with emotions, and impossible to put down." -- Publishers Weekly <strong>(starred review)</strong> "This second book in the "Wildstone" series displays best-selling author Shalvis's knack for creating witty, humorous, warmhearted characters dealing with complex emotional situations.
