About: Two lives, forced together by past events and present choices, find themselves navigating through the murky waters of blame and desire.
Years have passed since Olivia Nelson’s brother’s fatal accident. The day Jacob died, she swore to impose penance upon Landon Gray, the one responsible for his death. Armed with a plan of retribution, Olivia transforms herself into Brooke Johnson, an up-and-coming photographer. She arrives in Argentina’s Patagonia, prepared to make the hospitality magnate pay for the life he destroyed.
Landon Gray has suffered greatly from his guilt, longing only to be forgiven for his harrowing mistake. After the accident, Landon fled Portland, Oregon to his family’s holdings in South America. Upon Brooke Johnson’s arrival at Landon’s resort, he is immediately drawn to the talented photographer.
When Olivia sees Landon again, she is pricked by shadows of doubt. Determined to see her meticulous planning come to fruition, she stays the course, until tragedy strikes once more.
Review: I came for the cover, but stayed for the writing! I absolutely loved this book! Rita Hogan is absolutely a new name to watch as far as I’m concerned.
I do wish that the blurb hadn’t given quite so much away, and while there’s definitely still a lot to discover, it does summarize a good chunk of the plot.
