Sweet Baby Mine

Why can’t the bad things we’ve done in the past, stay in the past?
Ana will do anything to hold on to her husband. Tony is the love of her life–the Heathcliff to her Catherine, the Rivera to her Kahlo, the Sid to her Nancy. Without him, she’s nothing.
Tony is smart, driven, and accomplished. He takes pleasure in being Ana’s champion. He knows he is the one man who can save her from herself.
But their marriage is put to the test when their estranged daughter, Chloe, texts Ana to say she wants to come home–mother and daughter share a secret so dark that if Chloe ever revealed it, it would destroy Ana’s marriage.
Readers who enjoy Gillian Flynn’s antiheroines and Colleen Hoover’s heart-wrenching romantic thrillers will love Sweet Baby Mine. Rife with intergenerational patterns of mental illness, addiction, and trauma, Sweet Baby Mine is the powerful tale of the impact secrets, lies, and betrayals can have on a marriage. While the plot is devoted to both Ana and Tony, American expats living in Paris, the inner journey belongs to Ana as her daughter’s return sets off a painful chain of events that forces her to confront her demons, find her voice, and realize sometimes love can be found in the unlikeliest of places.
