Over a year ago Garnet Patton's young daughter disappeared without a trace, kidnapped by her ex-husband. And now a big-city cop thinks a little girl in rural Georgia might be Sophie.
Yet Detective Julian Cavenaugh insists on proceeding with the utmost caution. The child he saw appeared healthy and happy and doted on by a loving father. Without proof that the girl is Garnet's daughter, Julian can't make false accusations against an innocent man. Or raise a desperate mother's hope. Especially when he's already emotionally involved.
Garnet knows in her heart that the girl is Sophie. And that she's fallen for Julian when she never expected to feel anything again. But when they arrive in Georgia, they learn that the girl has vanished once more!
