Carrie Halligan never regretted the choice she made sixteen years ago to raise her son Jack by herself in Willow Bay, Michigan. A successful photographer by day, at night Carrie satisfies her musical passions by playing piano at a hotel bar, maintaining a balance that works for her and Jack. Walking away from Maestro Liam Reilly without telling him she was pregnant with his child may have been the hardest thing she'd ever done, but it was definitely the right thing.
When Liam shows up in town to perform a benefit concert with the local symphony, however, Carrie's carefully crafted life spins out of control. After sending Jack to summer camp, she realizes she can't keep Liam in the dark forever. Telling the truth to the man she once loved more than life itself isn't near as hard as spending time in his presence and realizing that the years haven't diminished his power over her heart. Will her lie be too much to get past, or will the spark of passion between them overcome everything?
About the Author
But writing is Nan’s first and most enduring passion. She can’t remember a time in her life when she wasn’t writing—she wrote her first romance novel at the age of ten, a love story between the most sophisticated person she knew at the time, her older sister (who was in high school and had a driver’s license!) and a member of Herman’s Hermits. If you remember who they are, you are Nan’s audience! She’s still writing romance, but now from the viewpoint of a wiser, slightly rumpled, menopausal woman who believes that love never ages, women only grow more interesting, and everybody needs a little sexy romance.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Is nice to read about a couple a little older than young twenties and a teenager made more real than a surprise pregnancy. I loved the father-son interaction and especially their talent sharing. Beautiful story and well written
Liam comes to conduct an orchestra for a benefit and sees Carrie again. He is happy to find her after all these years but she has been hiding a secret from him. He has a 15 year old son. Will he be able to forgive her? Will Liam and her son hate her for keeping them apart? A well written story. Characters are so emotional and believable. joy943
