After a harrowing accident tore her family apart, Molly Brennan fled from the man she loved and the tragic mistake she made. Twelve years later, Molly has created a new life for herself and her eight-year-old daughter, Cassie.

Two months before his wedding, financial executive James Donato chased his trade-laundering brother Phil to Mexico, only to be lost at sea and presumed dead. Six and a half years later, he emerges from a dissociative fugue state to find he's been living in Oaxaca as artist Carlos Dominguez, widower and father of two sons, with his sister-in-law Natalya Hayes, a retired professional surfer, helping to keep his life afloat. But his fiancée, Aimee Tierney, the love of his life, has moved on.
Lifestyle journalist Ella Skye remembers every celebrity she interviewed, every politician she charmed, and every socialite who eyed her with envy. Her husband. But what she can’t remember is the tragic car accident that ripped her unborn child from her. Ella can’t even recall being pregnant. Hoping to find the memories of a lost pregnancy that’s left her husband devastated and their home empty, Ella begins delving into her past when she’s assigned an exclusive story about Nathan Donovan, a retired celebrity adventurer who seems to know more about her than she does him.
Due mesi prima di sposarsi, James Donato scompare in mare, in Messico, impegnato nelle ricerche di suo fratello Phil, invischiato in traffici illeciti. Sei anni più tardi, lo stesso uomo dato per disperso riemerge dal suo stato di fuga dissociativa in cui era piombato quel maledetto giorno, per ritrovarsi protagonista di un'altra vita, con un nuovo lavoro e un nuovo nome. Vedovo e padre di due figli, vive a Oaxaca insieme a sua cognata Natalya, un'ex surfista professionista, con cui ha condiviso gli anni più bui.
L'aiuto cuoco Aimee Tierney ha trovato la ricetta per la vita perfetta: sposare il ragazzo che ama fin da quando è una bambina, creare una famiglia e poi chissà, un giorno rilevare il ristorante dei genitori. Il futuro che aveva sognato le passa però davanti in un lampo, come strappato dal vento, quando il suo fidanzato James perde la vita in un incidente in barca. Dal giorno in cui la chiesa che avrebbe dovuto ospitare il loro matrimonio è diventata il triste scenario per il funerale di James, Aimee non ha pace.
Die Hochzeit mit ihrer großen Jugendliebe sollte der schönste Tag in Aimees Leben werden. Aber statt mit James vor dem Altar steht sie nun allein an seinem Grab. Von einer Reise nach Mexiko ist er nicht zu ihr zurückgekehrt. Er galt nach einem Bootsunfall als verschollen, bis seine sterblichen Überreste angespült wurden. Jeder Moment ohne ihn schmerzt und die Vergangenheit gibt keine Ruhe. Eine geheimnisvolle Fremde behauptet, James würde noch leben.
