What happens when you get everything you've worked for, only to discover it's not what you really want?
Dan O'Leary worked night and day to finish law school, join a top firm, and make partner all before the age of thirty-five. He's found a man who swept him off his feet, and his best friend of twenty years has his back.
His growing discontent with his job has Dan considering a change, but a series of betrayals, professional and personal, lead Dan to reconsider his whole life.
Making a fresh start, Dan meets the people of Blue Ridge, Georgia, including Chief of Police Nick Oliver, and, perhaps, finds a new home. But danger from his old life follows him and puts not only his life, but that of his new friends, at risk.
