First Best is the fateful tale of two young people ripped apart by deception and greed. This book presents the reader with gifts of adventure and mystery neatly wrapped into an epic journey that
highlights the unmistakable importance of kindness, family, and the power of a love between two people that not even death could deny.
Even though her wealthy parents seemingly owned half of Texas, Domino Bay saw herself as just another teenager trying to live up to the reputation of her older sister. Despite Domino’s kind nature and generosity, to most of her family and friends, she was merely second best. That is, until she met a quiet loner named Nicholas Jones who stole her heart and convinced the girl to see herself as she truly was. The matching rings Nicholas Jones bought to memorialize their union were both engraved with Domino’s new title, First Best. Their love blossomed into one that transcended the meaning of love itself. And yet Domino’s mother cursed the relationship, fearing that a boy with no past would certainly have no future. So it was when Nicholas was involved in a horrific car accident that took his life, Domino was devastated while her mother secretly rejoiced. Fourteen years later, while visiting Nicholas’s grave, Domino would meet a handsome English doctor who would remind her so much of her lost love, it was as if Nicholas had returned to her. He didn’t look like Nicholas, he didn’t sound like Nicholas, but there was something about the mysterious stranger that would leave the eternally grief-stricken woman wondering why he had such an effect on her, and why he would be in possession of a ring identical to hers with the engraving, First Best.
