She runs back to her native Louisiana hoping to find a solution to the dark secret she is hiding from her husband. She knows she made a crucial mistake and it is costing her dearly. If only she had listened to Les. Instead she leaves a note behind telling him she has filed for divorce.
Les is shocked to come home to an empty house and a notice that Careena is breaking off their marriage. Angrily, he tosses the letter aside. But as days stretch into weeks, he realizes how much he misses her. It’s not until he commits a terrible slip-up himself before he comes to his senses and decides that he will go after her, if for no other reason than to satisfy his curiosity about why she bolted.
He finds her at a hospital hovering between life and death after being shot during a holdup while working a security detail--- and the news that she is pregnant. She rejects his proposal to work things out. But Les is undaunted and decides to woo her all over again with a romantic dinner. As Careena drives home to Metairie her car’s brakes fail and she ends up in the hospital again. It turns out that the brake failure was a deliberate act. But who would want Careena dead and why? Unless she is willing to open up to Les why she ran in the first place, she might not survive her latest ordeal.
