Jessie Jones' is a member of the New Year's Eve Club in which a group of five friends since high school get together on New Year's Eve to recount their experiences of the past year and make new resolutions as to which kind of guys to stay away from and which to pursue. But Jessie is hesitant to tell her friends how her cheating husband left her for a slut. Heartbroken and miserable, Jessie has determined she will not get involved with another man but instead will have "flings" which will not touch her heart and will not affect her two wonderful children, Sophie and Charlie. She will not be the kind of woman who gives her children temporary "dads." But Jessie did not foresee that in her future there was a wonderful man waiting to involve her heart, even against her will. Detective Mick Landers is assigned to her when her son, Charlie goes missing. In a turmoil of grief and anxiety during the hours Charlie is nowhere to be found, Jessie barely registers anything about Mick Landers other than he instills in her a strong feeling that he will find her son and bring him back to her. Mick is instantly smitten by her but later on, when Jessie starts to see him she keeps a shield around her heart, too scared by her past to allow any man access to her heart.
This wonderful story is as effervescent as a glass of champagne and draws one in with fast-paced romance, suspense and warmth.
