All My Belongings
By Cynthia Ruchti
A new life and a new identity can’t protect Becca from a past that refuses to go away.
After spending years running from the shame her father put on her family, Jayne is determined not to let him steal her future in the same way he stole her childhood. Changing her name to Becca Morrow, she moves to California and settles into a new life and new job caring for ailing mother of handsome young businessman, Isaac Hughes.
But just as she’s wondering if she and Isaac are headed for a relationship, Becca’s patient passes away under unusual circumstances. Suddenly, her past catches up with her and the unnerving details of her heritage threaten to destroy all sense of home and all hope for love.
Even if she could clear her name, a phone call wraps a suffocating shroud around her heart. Her estranged father needs her help. But can Becca open her new life to the man who ruined her past?
How do you escape a family scandal? Becca legally changed her name and took a job hundreds of miles away in California. This job was caring for a friend’s dying sister. Not an easy job for her to do after her mother’s death, but necessary.
There was one complication – Isaac, the handsome son of her patient. Well, that and Becca’s big secret.
Romance was in the air. At least until her patient died, and Becca was accused of killing her. And then the topper. A man from her home town shows up and lives are at risk. It’s all such a mess, and Becca’s not sure it will ever get straightened out.
This is the first book I’ve read by Ms Ruchti. but it won’t be the last. I’m looking forward to reading many more.
