Would you abandon your present for a second chance at your past?
Cecelia Reynolds has spent most of her life trying to forget the commitment-phobic man who broke her heart. It wasn’t easy, but eventually she did it, or so she thought…
As Cecelia and her husband gather for a friend’s wedding, her perfect world is thrown into complete turmoil. Even though it’s been twenty years since she last laid eyes on Keith Emerson, all it takes is one glance for her to feel emotions she thought were long gone. When Keith ends up officiating the ceremony, she quickly realizes his message of love is directed at her, not the happy couple. But can she believe him?
We live our entire lives thinking we know ourselves. But do we ever really?
As secrets and lies cause Cecelia’s world to spin completely out of control, she is forced to seek advice from the most unlikely ally. In the process, she must confront the demons of her past and the events that shaped her into the woman she is now. Will she finally learn the real meaning of love, friendship, and family?

MY THOUGHTS -
This book was sooo real! It felt like I was reading about a real person not just a character. I kept yelling at my iPad "No no no no no - don't do it!!!" But did she listen to me - Noooo! They never do, those fictional characters, they all have minds of their own. Thank God this had a great ending. If it didn't I don't think I would have liked it as much.
But... this kind of stuff does happen in life - all too often! I had a girlfriend whose husband was cheating on her and a different girlfriend who was cheating on her husband - and I knew she was! She told me she was! How many of you know someone who has cheated? Or had an affair yourself?
Also what really surprised me was that people were convincing her to get in touch with "him". I don't think I would have done that as a friend. See - here I am talking about them as though they are real people not fictional characters! But that's what happens in a great book - they do feel like real people with real problems.
This is real hard stuff, its gritty and to be honest it was hard to read at times. We all know its wrong...
But it sure does make a great plot subject! This story was written with such heart ripping honesty (you know, the kind that rips your heart out). It is sad, sweet, raw, emotional, and oh so very up close and personal.
