Coert Yeager has learned to live without the girl who entered his life right when she shouldn’t and exited delivering a crippling blow he never would have suspected. The time in between was full of failing to find what he was missing…and life-altering betrayal.
But when that girl shows up in Magdalene and buys the town’s beloved lighthouse, even if Coert wants to avoid her, he can’t. A fire in town sparks a different kind of flame that won’t be ignored.
As Cady and Coert question the actions of the two young adults they once were thrown into earth-shattering circumstances, can they learn from what came in between and find each other again?

“So what’s up with that?”
I turned from openly watching Tony from my place planted in a spot in Lars’s living room, where I could see him standing talking to Lars in the kitchen, and I looked at Maria.
“What’s up with what?” I asked but I knew.
She hadn’t missed that Tony and I showed together and she really hadn’t missed that he was holding my hand when we walked in the front door.
Now she was watching me closely in a way that didn’t say girlfriend-ticked-her-best-friend-didn’t-share-about-a-hot-guy. Instead, the way she was watching me made me feel funny, not with guilt that I hadn’t shared, in a way that was strangely scary.
“When did you two become an item? And while we’re at it, how did you two become an item?” she pressed. “You’ve been living in a world of Sip and Save ambition, not around long enough to say hello much less find time to flirt with shady characters.”
I found it odd that Maria would describe Tony as a “shady character” when, okay, he kinda was with the company he kept, but he was a super nice guy outside of that. And anyway, it seemed she dug hanging out with Lars and if there was a shady character to beat all shady characters, Lars was that.
I lifted a shoulder, trying to shake the feeling I was getting from her. “We had a thing and I think he feels sorry for me.”
“What kind of thing?” she asked.
I licked my lips and rubbed them together, sliding my glance away.
I hadn’t shared about Tony, which meant I hadn’t shared about The Trench either.
“Cady,” she prompted impatiently.
I looked back at her. “I got in a situation in The Trench when you guys were hanging with the Chaos guys. It wasn’t good. Tony showed and helped me out. I kinda lost it on him because my parents were being my parents, my landlord evicted me, my car was acting up, then that happened in The Trench and I was just done. I needed to unload and he was the closest one so he got it dumped on him. And now . . . well now . . .” I glanced back down the hall. “Well, now I think he’s worried I’ll fall off the deep end if he doesn’t look out for me.”
“He wants in your pants.”
