But when her fiancé dies months before the wedding, all of that dies with him. She turns to friends, family, her parents’ faith, and a god she doesn’t believe in as she tries to hold herself together long enough to mourn the loss of her relationship and figure out how to start over from scratch. To complicate matters further, what starts as mutual support slowly blossoms into an undeniable attraction to the one man she's sure she can’t be with: her dead fiancé’s brother.||”|
