"Come back to me, with all your love." Song lyrics
After an argument with her husband, Wendy, gets into a compromising situation and ends up at a New York hotel room with a man she just met. While she goes to the bathroom, a man barges into the main room and shoots Wendy's acquaintance. As the man was planting a gun, Wendy comes out of the bathroom, picks up the gun and tries to get the man to surrender, when he makes a threat with his own gun, she shoots him. Checking the man's i.d. she sees that he was an official and Wendy panics. The man's partner is down the hall and sees Wendy run from the room, and the chase is on.
Lauritzia Valez is a nanny with a secret. While with the children who were in her care, she's spotted by a man who tries to kill her. She and the children escape and we follow the events that led from her earlier life in Mexico to now.
The heart pounding plot moves from one woman to the other as the story unfolds like a fast moving train. Revenge, brave women and appealing characters reveal their story and fight to overcome their situation as the reader is glued to the pages.
I read the story until late at night and recommend it.
