There's nothing like the sun-kissed West Coast
T. J. Hillyard said it all: it had been a long time since vacationing Manhattan attorney Abbie Jarvis had been in Wheeler, California. Fruit trees and sunflowers still graced the lawns and gardens. Children still rode bicycles on quiet streets. It was the same sleepy town Abbie remembered, but it didn't look the same. Not at all.
When Abbie was growing up, she'd dreamed of escaping Wheeler and finding glory in the big city. But was anything more glorious than a sunrise in Wheeler, than in all the tomorrows she could have with T.J., who savored the small moments of a day and made each day matter? Once Abbie dreamed of finding a way out--now she wondered if there was a way back.
