Can he find new love and his son’s assailant?

At a wedding in Italy, Julian Case, a Manhattan realtor and widower, meets Alegra Rossini, a university professor and single mom, and is struck by her beauty, grace, and playfulness as they dance the night away.

Can a father unlock the secret connection and find his son’s attacker before it’s too late? Will Julian lose his chance at new love? And what about Alegra? Will she let this promising relationship slip away from her? Together, can they weather the storm and let love in their lives again for one more dance?
