Following the acclaimed success of Souvenir, Therese Fowler’s captivating new novel will resonate with every woman who has wondered what if—as a heartfelt drama of buried secrets and daring passion unfolds.

Celebrity talk show host Blue Reynolds is the queen of daytime television—she is smart, funny, and as down-to-earth as her adoring fans. In the eyes of the world, she has it all. But no one knows about the secret she has harbored for the last twenty years—a secret that could destroy her image, her reputation, and her career. Twenty years ago, she gave birth to a son and put him up for adoption through illegal channels. And every day since, she’s been filled with regret. Now Blue has hired a private investigator to find her son, knowing full well the consequences.

A week in Key West to do her show on location brings Blue a much-needed change of pace—and an unexpected reunion with an old flame, Mitch Forrester. Helping him launch a television series may help her recapture the kind of genuine romance and affection long missing from her life. But it also means having to deal with Mitch’s disapproving son, Julian, who is only nine years younger than Blue. Emotionally battered from his years as a war photographer in the world’s most dangerous hotspots, Julian struggles to get close to his father while making his disdain for Blue crystal clear—which makes his desire for her all the more shocking.

As serendipity and scandal collide, Therese Fowler’s passionate, illuminating novel takes a dramatic turn deep into our own hearts, as the healing power of love—family love, romantic love, and self-love—transforms pain and regrets into promises and second chances.

    " loved this book i couldnt put it down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ann | 2/6/2014

    " I liked her first book, Souvenir, better. I didn't feel any connection to these characters; in fact, I didn't like the two main male characters. Glad I only spent $4 on it from the B&N bargain shelves! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 2/6/2014

    " I thought that this had too much story to get into the actual story. I lost interest before I got into it and put it down after the 5th chapter. I loved her first book and was disappointed. I will try again with Therese Fowler though "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginny | 2/4/2014

    " I found this to be a well-written book by the author and for that reason I gave it three stars. But in terms of whether I enjoyed it, not so much. It's just that I don't much care for chick flick novels so it's my fault for checking it out from the library. Those that love that genre will find this an enjoyable and well-written story. "

    " Such a great story this author has shared here. Easy reading. I was hooked from page one. I think what stands out the most is the character development. Everyone seems entirely real. There is nothing unbelievable. Now I must read The Souvenier - Fowler's first novel. "

    " I was so excited to read Fowler's second book since I had loved Souvenir. I was disappointed in this book. The characters never seemed to be developed. It all seemed to work out too easily. For me, it was not believable. "

    " Very cute, but a bit far fetched. Blue (Oprah) and the son of her former lover is the happy ending? I preferred her last book, Souvenir. Reinforced my desire to go to Key West, though! "

    " Good read about fantasy of going back and re-igniting "first love" ...... sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Interesting twist at the end; didn't see it coming until close to the end. Not sure I agree with it, though. "
