Blurb

After Camille and a pregnant Willamina saw the shocking pictures of the bachelor party starring their doppelgangers entertaining the men they loved, Mina's wedding was OFF. By morning, Olympic diver Camille Wallace's suffering was just beginning and she had 328 reasons to never forgive the Hightower brothers, 328 reasons to blame them for her sister's death. And two reasons to avoid them forever. Fifteen years later, developer Kyle Hightower came to build a hot springs and ski resort in the scenic Rocky Mountains and ran into the last person he ever expected to see in Colorado and discovered two people who would change everything in his life, the children Camille had kept secret. Their reunion means he will have to explain his desperate brother's actions that changed their lives forever and she will have to explain the pain she moved there to escape. Together they will have to face their past and the painful consequences of the actions of others.

Introduction

Camille’s Gramma Doreen always said a picture is worth a thousand words, sometimes a thousand painful words, but forgiveness can erase them.


Two years before chapter 1:

Summer Olympics Platform Diving Pool...


"And Jack, here we have Camille Wallace up for her last dive of the day. She needs a perfect score to get back into medal contention. She has done an amazing job, coming back for her second Olympics as a solo diver. "

"I know, Walt. At first, they worried she wouldn't be able to make the transition without her sister, but the USA dive coach gave her a spot and it was worth the risk. Her scores have even the Chinese World Champions biting their nails. The competition this Olympics has been the fiercest we have seen. I think we'll be watching her in the next Olympics too. So far Camille has been the only American Diver to make it into the finals of both Springboard, where she won bronze, and now in the final dive of her Olympic Platform round. And here she is taking the edge, she is going up on her hands. Look at that line, the concentration... And there she goes..."

"And she did it, Jack. What an amazing dive! She just sucks the water in after her..."

"From our underwater camera, you can see the bubble wings where her teammates got her nickname from. They are calling her the blue butterfly. Let's re-watch the dive in slow motion. Look at how controlled she is as she twists, Walt."

"Jack, the scores are up... Let's see what the judges' score this dive at... Oh now that is a shame... Looks like Camille Wallace is going to get another bronze medal... And there is Willamina on the sideline, that is a happy sister."

"I am going to make a prediction, Walt. I am going to predict we see the Wallace sisters in the next Olympics. Camille diving and Willamina cheering her on..."
