In this spectacular new novel, Barbara Oâ€™Neal delivers a
generous helping of the best in lifeâ€“family, food, and
loveâ€“in the story of a womanâ€™s search for the one thing
worth more than anything.
At thirty-seven, Tessa Harlow is still working her way
down her list of goals to â€śfall in love and have a
family.â€ť A self-described rolling stone, Tessa leads
hiking tours for adventurous vacationersâ€“itâ€™s a job thatâ€™s
taken her around the world but never a step closer to
home. Then a freak injury during a trip already marred by
tragedy forces her to begin her greatest adventure of all.
Located high in the New Mexico mountains, Las Ladronas has
become a magnet for the very wealthy and very hip, but
once upon a time it was the setting of a childhood trauma

Vince is the father of three, including an eight-year-old
girl as lost as Tessa herself. But Tessa and Vince are
both drawn to the townâ€™s most beloved eateryâ€“100
Breakfastsâ€“and to each other. For Tessa, the restaurant is
not only the key to the mystery that has haunted her life
but a chance to find the home and the family sheâ€™s never
