From the internationally bestselling author of Moondust Lake comes an emotional and enriching novel of family, forgiveness, self-acceptance, and self-discovery . . .

When the darkness seems too hard to bear, there's only one thing left to do.

Six years ago, Daniel was a Los Angeles financial analyst who was too handsome for his own good. Too smart for his anchor job on the nightly news. And too enamored with the heady addictions of the high life. That man died in a tragic accident with his fiancée. With grief and guilt battling for control, Daniel moved to the quiet California seaside town of Miramar Bay with his best friend--a rescue Labradoodle who still sees him through rough times. Daniel's a different man now. Clean, sober, and taking things one day at a time with no commitments to anyone except himself. And just as his solitude begins to chafe, two souls in need of fresh starts unexpectedly enter Daniel's life . . .
Realize that it's time to wake up.

Daniel's self-centered sister has dissolved several longtime relationships. Theirs included. The latest?

Yet to Daniel's surprise, playing surrogate father is forging a bond that he needs, too. More difficult for Daniel is the possibility of romance with lovely and fragile Stella Dalley. Struggling with a trauma of her own, the single mother is as cautious about love as Daniel is--no matter how healing it could be. But for Daniel, Stella, and Nicole there's still hope for a tomorrow they can call their own. All they have do is to learn to trust in each other, and in themselves.

Booklist Review

Daniel is an L.A. financial analyst with a past. Six years ago, his fiancée was killed riding in a car he was driving while drunk. After four years of sobriety, he still can't forgive himself for the accident. But life is about to change. First his estranged sister, Lisa, drops her daughter, Nicole, off unexpectedly at his home, and he finds himself in charge of an angry teenager. Then an AA friend's daughter, who's determined to be a model, moves in. And finally he meets Stella, a woman suffering her own losses and trust issues, who is being accused of embezzling town funds. Daniel uses past contacts and a determined gentleness to help all three. He lets Nicole blossom in a nonjudgmental atmosphere, connects his friend's daughter with a photographer, and delves into accounting records to clear Stella. There's a lot of teenage angst here, but the author knows how to make his characters realistic and appealing. Bunn's (Unscripted, 2019) many fans will love this story of redemption, recovery, and life's second chances.
