Someone wanted to send a message—but was it intended for Celeste or for Stephen?
There are plenty of suspects, but no real clues as to who set Celeste’s car on fire. Stephen wants her safe at his house, and despite her reservations that’s where she finds herself. Will his family stand by while she moves into his place? Even as she tries to settle in, the past insists on coming back to haunt them both. Alan won’t stay away, and with him he carries the shadows of her old life which she had thought safely buried. At the same time, Stephen’s secrets are beginning to leak out as well, even though he seems determined to hold onto them.
Tricia was here in Houston. Stephen had seen her again without telling me.
Stephen is going to find out who was responsible for torching Celeste’s car and make sure they never threaten her again. First, though, he has to make sure she’s safe, and to do that he’s going to keep her at his place where he never has to let her out of his sight. Then he somehow has to convince his family that Celeste isn’t after his bank accounts, while at the same time dealing with his former fiancée’s blackmail attempts. As if things aren’t complicated enough, he still hasn’t told Celeste about Patricia. He had to be careful—that whole situation is a ticking time bomb just waiting to blow up in his face.
Both Celeste’s future and my own rested on me not making any more stupid mistakes.
