It came out of the blue. A half-million dollars on
graduation day. For Annie Daisy Clark, it was the capital
she needed to start a business and secure her future. It
was also money that didnâ€™t belong to her. Vowing to pay
back every penny of it one day, she kept the bag of cash
sheâ€™d found, and never looked back.
Ten years later, Annieâ€™s investment has paid off. The
owner of a successful chain of elegant coffee bars, she is
blissfully engaged to a handsome coffee plantation owner
and about to return triumphant to Boston for the 10th
college reunion. She also begins making good on her
promise to return the five hundred thousand dollars with
anonymous monthly payments.
But just as Annieâ€™s life seems complete, the dark history
of the money returns to haunt her. Someone is determined
to solve the mystery of a ten-year-old bank robbery and an
enraged thief who has served his time is coming to reclaim
his loot. Suddenly, Annie is plunged into a deadly chase,
forced to use all her wits to keep her world from
unraveling, and to protect the one thing she values mostâ€”
the priceless gift of love.
