Life is about to become more complicated for Teresa McNally. As a single, working mother, living in a small town, her average day is pretty predictable. Then things change. While Teresa is dealing with her insecurities, her mother's criticism, and an unexpected twist to her boring love life, the town is turned upside down by murder and misdeeds. For Nick Romolo, however, life has always been complex. He has conquered his inner demons and a bout with alcoholism. Just when his life is getting back on track, he finds himself falling in love with Teresa, his childhood friend-and his brother's ex-girlfriend. To make matters worse, he has found incriminating evidence involving her son's father. When Gordon White comes back into town, Nick's investigation becomes even more imperative, and he struggles to uncover every secret thing that has been buried under a blanket of deception before it's too late.
