At 12, Vanessa Whittaker defied her family to save 17-year-old bad boy Eric Cipriani from wrongful imprisonment and, possibly, death. She’d hoped for a “thank you” from him, a kiss on the cheek, but before she could grow up and grow curves, he left town.
Seikei, the adopted son of Japan's greatest crime-solver, returns to his home town for a visit to his birth family. He finds that his younger brother is now running the family tea business, but that mysterious midnight deliveries make Seikei suspicious. Most disturbing is the city's famous puppet theater, where not one, but two, murders…
Fourteen years later, Vanessa is a celebrity chef at the five-star Ozarks resort she built. Eric is the new Chouteau County prosecutor on his way to the White House.
Four hours apart and each tied to their own careers, their worlds have no reason to intersect until a funeral brings Vanessa back to Chouteau County, back to face the man for whom she’d risked so much, the only man she ever wanted—
—the only man she can’t have.
