Publisher’s description: “Even though their financial future looked grim, Holly and Alex Sheridan had plenty to be happy about—they were in love, living the life they’d always wanted, and awaiting the birth of their first child. But all that changed when Alex’s private plane crashed into the California coastline. Devastated by the loss of her husband, Holly devoted her time and energies to getting ready for the baby. Little did she know that someone else was preparing for the birth—someone who would force Holly to fight for the life of her son and the right to keep him with her forever.”
Setting: Santa Rosa; Northern California
