She’s made amends with her only daughter, Cassie, who’s been through a treacherous divorce. Cassie’s daughter, Renee, too young to understand her grandmother’s earlier mistakes, has become the light of Sharon’s life. But Sharon can’t seem to escape from her past. Her mother’s deathbed confession haunts her. Convinced the answer to truly overcoming her addiction lies with her biological father, Sharon sends off a DNA test in the hope of finding him. When the results of the test aren’t as revealing as Sharon anticipates, she and Cassie team up to find the truth. Meanwhile an old flame shows up. Sharon doesn’t think she can ever love again, but what Johnny offers seems like a dream come true. His charm and kindness shine so bright, Sharon can almost believe he’s changed. As the search for her father continues to frustrate and tensions escalate with Cassie, Sharon wonders if leaving it all behind for a life with Johnny will save her crumbling heart. Will the truth set Sharon free? Or it will it be the final blow to her sobriety?

Excerpt

I pulled my keys out of the ignition and reached for my purse. I shifted the rearview mirror so I could see my face and wipe away the mascara that was probably all over my cheeks by now. I shifted and glanced up, but I’d angled the mirror too low and it was reflecting my chest, not my face. Instead of smeared mascara and fine lines I saw the shirt I was wearing. The mermaid shirt Renee had given me for Christmas.

My throat ached, and I ran my hand over the mermaid’s silhouette. Because it reminded me of you, Grammy. Me, a mermaid. That was funny, but I didn’t laugh. I sighed and set the mirror at its proper angle. I didn’t know much about mermaids, but I was pretty sure they didn’t go to bars. I rested my head against the seat of my old Buick. I would never win mother of the year, but I still had a fighting chance of being a decent grandma.
