On the day her doctor husband dies in a car crash, no one – not even him – knew that Evvie was walking out the door and leaving him. And now, nearly a year later, she still hasn’t told anyone and hates having to play the part of the grieving widow. As Evvie languishes in the home she shared with her husband, her best friend Andy suggests she take in his friend who needs a place to stay out of the spotlight. Dean is a major league baseball player, whose pitching arm has given out on him, potentially ending his career.
This debut novel is a sweet, but far from shallow, romance about two people helping each other get over their hard knocks and move on.
