Jake heard his son scream, then Cassie shouting and screaming; his blood froze, goose bumps covered his skin. His limbs wouldn't work. He felt as though everything was moving in slow motion; it seemed to take forever to reach the back door.
The swing still rocked slightly, one chain dragged on the grass, while the wooden seat lay limp and lifeless. Everything seemed animated, he felt as though he was in a dream. Cassie was screaming for him to call an ambulance.
It couldn't be happening, NOT again.
Cassie Nelson, who is on a determined mission to find Mr. Right, has just left another jerk back at the nightclub when she nearly runs over a drunken man tossed into the road by a publican.

With four children and a comfortable home, Jake is the ideal mate. As romance blossoms, it seems life is finally smiling on Cassie. When she becomes pregnant a year later, everyone is thrilled—except his son, Dane, who appears determined to remove her from his father’s life. Cassie’s quest for acceptance finally comes to a crux when she is pushed down the stairs, loses her unborn child, and has a hysterectomy. As Cassie spirals into insanity and the arms of her best friend’s husband, her obsession to have a child transforms into a need for revenge. As Jake’s children begin dying through bizarre accidents, someone is arrested for murder. But is it the right one?
In this thrilling tale, a woman who has seemingly finally found Mr. Right embarks on quest for revenge after she loses his baby.
