About the book:

Nina Arceneaux, a struggling single mother, has a choice to make— she’s been proposed to by a millionaire, a man she doesn’t love. Larry Denison offers to take her, and her eight-year-old daughter, Precious, out of their one-bedroom apartment and move them into a mansion in Monterey, California. But, there’s a catch. Larry has an autistic eight-year-old daughter named Christine, and Nina isn’t sure she can handle the prospect of being a stepmother to a child with special needs. But, she marries Larry anyway and quickly embraces her new lifestyle.

One day, while Larry is away on a business trip, Nina takes both girls on a ride in her new SUV. The vehicle skids off of the road and into a lake. As the car is sinking in the murky water, Nina has to make the toughest decision of her life—does she save Christine or Precious? When Larry returns from his trip, Nina tells Larry what happened but fails to tell him she could have saved Christine. She’s going to take her lie to her grave, but she has one major problem…someone saw the entire thing and is threatening to tell.
