In her newest novel, Aisha and Ryan meet and fall in love, believing nothing will ever come between them. But with the birth of a high-needs son, love is shackled and passion blunted by responsibility.
Ryan can’t take it any more. Then, after a mysterious phone call, Aisha leaves her son, Eli, with her elderly father, Patrick, and does not come back. Patrick’s frustration coping with a grandson he barely knows turns to fear when blood is found in her abandoned car. Verdict: Meets the challenge.
