For fans of David Nicholls's One Day and Liane Moriarty's What Alice Forgot, here's a page-turning novel about a young woman who is torn between two men, and who must determine where--and with whom--her future lies. Emma is just days from marrying her childhood sweetheart, Richard. But what should be the happiest time of Emma's life takes a turn for the worse when, on the night of her bachelorette party, tragedy strikes. Thanks to some quick thinking from a stranger, Emma is pulled free from a totaled car before it goes up in flames. But another passenger is not so lucky. The wedding is postponed as family and friends deal with their shock and grief. But soon, secrets come to light that have Emma questioning her relationships--and her engagement. Making matters more complicated is the emotional connection she feels with Jack, the mysterious man who saved her life. It's a crisis no bridal magazine has ever covered: What do you do when, on the eve of your wedding, you find yourself in love with two men?

display_description You'd think a day when your whole life changes should be marked in some way. But for Emma, it wasn't. She had been celebrating her hen night, a low-key evening out with friends, when the car accident happened. Though Emma survived, her memories are hazy. Sometimes she can hear snatches of her friend's screams, or smell the fumes of petrol. Most of all though, she sees the shadowy man who saved her life. No-one else saw him. But he was definitely there. And as he pulled her from the wreckage, he promised he would always stay right behind her. But where is he now? As Emma prepares for the wedding she'd always dreamed of, she can't help dreaming of someone else.
