April and Oliver have been soul mates since childhood, and the attraction between them has always been palpable. Now, years after being completely inseparable, they have become strangers, but the wildly different paths of their lives are about to collide once again with the sudden death of April's brother. Sexual tension builds as Oliver, the responsible, newly engaged law student, finds himself drawn more than ever to the reckless, mystifying April-and cracks begin to appear in his carefully constructed life. Even as Oliver attempts to "save" his childhood friend from her grief, her menacing boyfriend, and herself, it soon becomes apparent that Oliver has some secrets of his own-secrets he hasn't shared with anyone, even his fiancEe. Yet April knows. Is it really her life that's unraveling, or is it his own? The answer awaits at the end of a downward spiral...toward a surprising revelation.

Professional reviews

"April and Oliver grew up as inseparable best friends whose lives took drastically different paths. The death of April's younger brother brings them back together, but long-buried family secrets and unresolved sexual tension complicate the reunion. In spite of the conflicts inherent in their unacknowledged attraction, complicated by Oliver's engagement to the saintly Bernadette, narrator Abby Craden's performance comes across as detached and lifeless. Only one character, the Spanish Nana, has a unique accent, and it doesn't sound authentic. The fault doesn't lie solely with Craden; Callahan's forced writing hints at electricity sparking between April and Oliver, but it never ignites. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
