Travel writer Dayna Benning tours Europe to write a feature story for a travel magazine. Along the way, she helps her bestie scatter her husband’s ashes. When Dayna accidentally sprinkles Alex Mendes with dried rose petals intended for the deceased, she senses a chemistry with the silver fox airline pilot. Just one catch—he wears a wedding band. Embittered by her divorce, Dayna refuses to be a homewrecker, like the woman who ruined her marriage. Alex and Dayna go their separate ways, but she’s mystified when serendipitous signs point her toward him at every turn. Determined to find out why, she learns Alex is a widower. Dayna hopes for a second chance at love…but her resentful heart stops her. Can she forgive those that broke her heart the first time? And for that matter, can she forgive herself for her failed marriage? Unless she finds a way to piece together her fragmented heart, Alex will forever remain a fantasy.

A Little Bite for you to enjoy.
Everything slid to slow-motion as an impossible tide rolled toward Dayna. She
couldn’t dispel the feeling she was walking away from something wonderful. Her chest clenched, and a familiar heaviness anchored her heart.
She felt like Meryl Streep in the truck behind Clint Eastwood at the end of Bridges of Madison County, when Meryl was torn between staying in the truck with her husband or jumping out to run after Clint—knowing if she didn’t—she’d lose him forever.
This is insane! Dayna had only known this guy for a couple of hours, didn’t even
know his last name. Her heart mashed into a roiling mix of confusion. The romantic notion of being on a European vacation had clouded her mind with impossible fantasies.
A hole opened in her heart. Mariko and the bus blurred. Choices, choices. But which were the right ones? Dayna reminded herself of the wonderful people she had yet to meet on this trip, and Alex was only the first of many.
As the bus pulled away, he stood on the boardwalk, smiling and waving, as if he’d known her all her life. She pressed her palm to the window, watching him grow smaller, and the bottom fell out of her.
