Just when Kailey "KC" Crane is about to start a new chapter of her life, the successful journalist--in her 30s, working for a Seattle newspaper--is brought face to face with an old flame. The chance encounter happens one night after KC and her handsome, attentive fiancé, Ryan, a high-end property development manager, dine in an upscale French restaurant. As Ryan fetches the car after dinner, good-natured KC offers a painfully thin, homeless man her leftovers and discovers the man is Cade McAllister, a once-successful music business mogul and the long-lost love of KC's life.

What ensues is a richly drawn, emotional story rife with conflict. Cade has suffered a traumatic brain injury of unknown origin, which has compromised his memory. KC eagerly volunteers to help Cade, while trying to piece together what happened to him and why he disappeared from her life 10 years before. In her quest, KC's heart is pulled in two directions, and she is forced to reconcile the choices that have shaped her own life: Will KC have a fulfilling future with Ryan? Might she still be in love with Cade, even in his altered state?

Sarah Jio (Goodnight June) braids a thought-provoking narrative that examines the forces that brought KC and Cade together and pulled them apart--the tenuous bond of their love--versus the cushy, comfortable life she shares with Ryan. Contrasting past and present perspectives, and KC's choice between old love and new, makes for a suspenseful and highly charged romantic conclusion. --Kathleen Gerard, blogger at Reading Between the Lines
