In Seattle Police Detective Brendan Quinn learns that his best friend Dean Fenton was murdered. Apparently Dean, who owned a security firm, was working a warehouse when two youths entered. They came not so much to rob the place, but to locate the meth they stashed in a trailer. In a senseless killing, the youngsters shot Dean when he found them. Feeling obligated, Brendan, who played ball with Dean as a child, informs Mindy, the pregnant wife of his late buddy. --- Brendan tries to be there though he never liked the widow. He soon realizes that his previous feelings towards Mindy was a form of reaction formation to hide even from himself how attracted he was and is to his best friend¿s widow. As Mindy begins to reciprocate, both feel guilt that they are betraying the memory of a nice man. --- The likable lead couple will keep the audience glued to this fine romantic contemporary as they struggle with love for one another and deep regard and love for the deceased. The story line is character driven with Brendan and Mindy feeling guilty that they are betraying a loved on, turning any relationship into a forbidden triangle. Janice Kay Johnson writes a strong relationship drama as the unborn symbolizes the future and the past.--- Harriet Klausner
