When Abby Stone’s politically connected ex shows up at her new hideout and she uses a wine bottle in self-defense, she has nowhere left to turn. Miraculously, a magic suitcase appears, propelling her into an unsettling game involving a sexy, kind stranger while she stays one breath ahead of her stalker.
Dylan Reece escaped tragedy to become a Key West single, yet Abby’s sad, wary eyes hold secrets and a chance for his redemption, if not more…
Will the magic of their love be enough to save them?

Inhale. Exhale. She stared at the item in her hands, white linen paper peeking out from between flat, yellow pages. Opening the book, she pulled out the envelope.

"One More Sunset is a fantastic book. When I agreed to read and review in exchange for an honest review, I almost passed on this one because of a heavy load of commitments. I am so glad I didn’t. This book has a bit it all."
