Three years ago, Alec McClane and Raegan Devereaux lived every parent’s worst nightmare: their one-year-old daughter, Emma, was abducted from a park when Alec turned his back for just a moment. Emma was never found, and presumed dead. The crushing trauma, plus Alec’s unbearable guilt, ended the couple’s marriage.

Now a four-year-old girl matching Emma’s profile is found wandering a local park. Alec and Raegan are heartbroken to discover she’s not their daughter but are newly motivated to find closure…and each secretly feels desperate to be in the other’s presence again.

Alec suspects his vengeful biological father is behind Emma’s disappearance. But as Raegan investigates other abductions in the area, she sees a pattern—and begins to wonder if Emma’s kidnapping is actually linked to something more sinister.

As Alec and Raegan race to uncover the truth, a long-burning spark rekindles into smoldering passion, and they realize they need each other now more than ever.

With a second book in this powerful series of uncovered secrets, Elisabeth Naughton brings us the heartbreaking story of a kidnapped child and the fallout for the parents afterward.  It’s sad, it’s powerful and it’s intense.  Great characters and story line!

Alec McClane and Raegan Devereaux were living the happy family life until tragedy took it all away from them over 3 years ago.  Their one year old daughter went missing from the park, never to be found and Alec’s guilt ate him alive and made him end their marriage, abandoning Raegan just when she needed him most.

More than three long years have passed, and they’ve existed separately, with each still secretly yearning for the other.  When the FBI calls each of them notifying them a 4 year old matching their daughters description has been found, they each rush to the scene, only to be heartbroken again when they discover it’s not her.

Forced to have contact again after all of these years makes a lot of feelings rise to the surface again.  When Raegan stops to look at the details of the little girl that was found, she sees some eerie similarities to other missing children cases.  Alec agrees to help her look into it to try to get some closure, but he’s still sure that his evil biological father was behind Emma disappearing, and is sure he killed her just to spite him.  Will they find the answers they are searching for?
