My Copy of the Book
Year Published: 2016
Genre: Romance; Contemporary; Medical Drama
A gripping medical drama for fans of contemporary women's fiction family sagas that asks the question 'what would you do if your first and only true love were given just weeks to live?'
Does the heart ever really heal from it's first break?
Dr. Keon McGowan has pictured his ex-wife’s death a thousand times. After all, ten years ago Darcy abandoned him and their daughter Lily in favour of chasing butterflies around the Amazon rainforest. So why then, when she’s given just weeks to live, does the bottom fall out of his world?
Compelled to provide Lily with lasting memories of the mother she's never known, Keon invites Darcy to a family get together in Sherwood Forest, promising to keep her failing health from his family as long as Darcy doesn't tell Lily she is her mother. But lying to his overprotective family and his incredibly intelligent ten year old about why Darcy has returned, is harder than he ever thought possible, especially when their speculation and meddling drags all kinds of secrets from the past and forces the whole family to face the truths they'd rather stay hidden.
Struggling to accept Darcy's choice to end her treatment (and her life), and perpetually caught between the desire to kiss her or kill her, Keon soon realises he never really healed from the broken heart Darcy caused. And that maybe to rest of the world she’s just one person, but to him, she is the world. And that means, unless he can convince Darcy to fight for the tomorrow they may not have, his world is about to end.
Keon, and his family, are about to learn that four days can change every thing.

My Take on the Book:
I honestly don't know why I haven't picked this book up before now. I enjoyed the flow of this book along with the descriptions; and ended up giving the book a four star rating.
It was nice to do some leisure reading; and it's the first time that I've read books by this author. I've also got 'Behind Closed Doors' series, so I'm hoping to be able to read those soon.
