One choice can ruin everything.
When a stop at a shady motel puts Brandon Parker face-to-face with his best friend, Mary, for the first time in over a decade, he almost didn't believe it. He'd never stopped searching for her, but even a career in law enforcement couldn't help him find a woman who wanted to stay invisible.
When Mary Benson ran away at 18, she did it with good reason. A man was in the hospital because of her, and the people she loved were in danger. She had to leave to keep them safe.
Mary's guilt was her consolation. She'd lived with her decisions and accepted the hand dealt to her. But Brandon was about to shuffle the deck in a way she never expected. One thing was for sure, he thought she'd be happy to see him, and he'd never been more wrong about anything in his life.
