Tess Johnson has it all: her handsome photographer husband Beau, a thriving business, and a newly discovered pregnancy. When Beau accepts an overseas photography assignment, Tess decides to wait to reveal her secret--only she's never given the chance. Beau's helicopter crashes in the desert.
Tess struggles with the news of Beau's death and tries to put her life back together. Alone and dealing with a pregnancy that only reminds her of what she has lost, Tess is adrift in a world of failed plans and fallen expectations. When a new client appears offering more than just a new project, Tess must confront the circumstances of her life head on.
Meanwhile, two Iraqi women who are fleeing honor killings find Beau barely alive in the middle of the desert, his body ravaged by the crash. Suha, a doctor, and Samira, a widow and mother of three young children, nurse him back to health in a makeshift tent. Beau bonds with the women and children, and together, with the help of an underground organization, they continue their dangerous escape.
What happens next is a test of loyalties, strength, and love.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have read all of Melissa Foster's romance books, but this is the first non LIB book of hers that I have read. Just like with all her other books I was not disappointed. I'm so glad I gave this book a try. Melissa is a wonderful writer that can draw you into each of her stories. Come Back to Me was a heart wrenching book with twists and turns that I didn't see coming and I loved every minute of reading it. I gobbled up the words on each page like I was starving and couldn't get enough of them. You can't help but hope that Beau will make it back to Tess and that they just might have a HEA. This is the most I have ever cried while reading a book. I was so emotionally involved throughout the book that it has taken me a few days to process everything that happened. This is a wonderful story of love, emotional struggles and loyalties.
A wonderful love story. Takes the reader into the lives of two opposite cultures: american & iraqi. Tragedy, suffering, tears. But there is also triumph, enduring love, strength, and bravery.
Suspenseful loving WOW!
