Can betrayal ever be completely forgiven?
Cindy thought it could until she saw him with the bleached blonde. Her Cody!
Separated eighteen years, Cody Wayne Buckmeyer and Cindy think they can put the past behind them and work toward a common goal, a congressional seat . . . but is that possible?
Cynthia Ann Kramer returns to her hometown in an effort persuade Cody Wayne “Cody Bear” Buckmeyer to run for an impending vacation of a seat in the US Congress. She has her work cut out for her due to his gold-digging, bleached-blond fiancé, Amy Zimmerman. She’s a self-promoting piece of work who had no moral compass. She’ll do anything to become Cody’s wife who she sees as a rich man who she can wrap around her manicured fingers. His parents know she isn’t the woman he should marry, but they believe he’ll figure it out sooner rather than too late. Through it all, Cindy remains steadfast taking the high road while Amy sinks lower and lower. Meanwhile, Cody remains a man of his word, but will his future be ruined by Amy’s self-serving choices?
