Darcie Thayer needs to find what her late husband hid before she is killed. The package may be her only means of survival. She accepts a job as nanny to a best-selling author in hopes of having the time to continue her search in the last place she ever thought she would go back to. Her hometown.
After his unfaithful wife’s death, York Wardell has sworn off women and lost his muse. He hopes hiring a nanny for his two children will allow him the time to meet deadlines. He doesn’t expect his life to be turned upside by a sprite of a girl with a chip on her shoulder who thrusts his family into danger.
Can Darcie and York, both hurting souls, flee the ruthless killers following them and rely on God to heal their pain?
