Kassie O’Callaghan is searching … for herself and for answers. With her husband six feet under and an engagement ring on her finger, Kassie is convinced managing a company merger in Paris will complete her. When she learns her fiancé’s ex-girlfriend is pregnant, Kassie’s plans come tumbling down. At least for the moment.


Despite pleas from her younger fiancé to stay in Boston and a warning from her best friend of what’s at stake should she leave, Kassie heads to Paris. There, she stumbles into a world of wine and roses as she puts her strengths and beliefs to the ultimate test. When a Greek businessman tries to rescue her, Kassie discovers—in life—it’s not whether you win or lose, it’s the way you love that counts.
