Lily James left Peak Valley on a bus in the middle of night ten years ago and had no intentions of ever returning, after all it could cost her everything. But when her brother Forest calls, telling her their mother is dying, Lily is willing to risk it just to spend a few nights with her mom.
Warren McKnight has spent the last ten years wondering what happened to the love of his life. No one knew what happened to Lily James. She disappeared without a trace. But when she returns, unharmed and looking as beautiful as she did when she disappeared, he wants answers.

A pale LeAnna raises a hesitant hand. “Is someone going to tell me what’s going on? I know it isn’t any of my business, but I’m with Forest, Lily. If whatever happened… fifteen years ago can’t hurt you or Forest, then don’t go. Stay. I’ve missed you. Gigi needs you, and I need my best friend.”
“I’ve missed you too, LeAnna. You have no idea how much. I wish I found a way to reach out to you, but even if what happened can’t hurt us, I fear something worse will happen.”
Forest lets out a frustrated groan. “You leave me no choice, Lily. You want to be stubborn about this shit, fine. But if you don’t tell Warren the truth,” he jabs a finger into his chest, “then I will. And you and I both know it’ll be better if it comes from you.”
