It’s not the wedding that concerns her; it’s one of the groomsmen. Her ex. It’s been eleven years since Grace moved away from Maple Valley without telling Caleb her life-altering secret. With a full summer of wedding festivities ahead, Grace must finally face the past and divulge the painful truth to the only man she’s ever loved.

    As the summer unfolds, Grace and Caleb rekindle their chemistry and dream of the promising relationship they’d once shared. But the scars of their past threaten to destroy their future once again. Can Grace and Caleb discover a new path before the arsonist strikes again and jeopardizes everything?
