This book is the continuing love story of Bethany and Alessandro Rodrigos, who were introduced in my first novel, Mistaken Obsession. Their Hotel Aria in Buenos Aires is successful, and when Sandro’s sister Ana Dumont and her children are forced to leave Paris and join her brother in her native Argentina, Ana organizes a singing show in the beautiful hotel ballroom once a month, with the families of the Dumonts and the Rodrigos taking part, to earn some money for her daily expenses. All the family members have talents, which are enjoyed by the audiences, and the shows are very popular. Ana and the children return to Paris at the invitation of her former modelling agency, and she looks forward to a reunion with her husband, Pierre. Ana is lauded by her previous employers, but it is proven once again that it is not safe for Tamara in France when she is attacked on stage by the son of her previous attacker. They go back to Buenos Aires to their life without their father, Pierre Dumont, who remains in France to continue his medical career and working for the anti-terrorist group he had been working with prior to his abduction in Syria.
Sandro and his family love to visit the ranch as often as they are able to. The ranch has been passed down to the eldest son for generations. It is wonderful for them as an escape from the stresses of the city. However, visits to the ranch, which are usually so peaceful, are interrupted by uninvited guests—the first is an illegal attempt to take cattle from the property, and Sandro is shot by one of the intruders, which causes great stress for the family. Subsequent events eventually lead up to a greater tragedy, which affects them all, and life will never be the same again.
