We will miss you Candy. I had problems getting this book on my nook. It would only download to one and not the other. I had never had that problem. I could find the nook book again but I knew I already bought it. It was strange.

Sophie woke up screaming. There was blood all over her pajama pants. She told Terrance to all call 911. The paramedics showed up and were going to take her to the hospital. They told Terrance and Tara (who heard the commotion) where they were going to take her. She told them she was pregnant. They got to the hospital and they showed her the baby was OK as Terrance walked in. He hasn’t known she was pregnant and said you’re pregnant and waked out. He remembered how when they were dating she didn’t show up for dinner one night for a date. He was worried about her and went to her house, had a neighbor check on her. She was in her bed, curled in a ball crying, she had just had an abortion. She hadn’t told him she was pregnant. He remembered his dad telling him: fool you once, shame on you, fool you twice, shame on me. Tara went home and told Josh what happened. She decided that lies had a way of coming back to you and she decided to tell Louis to stop perusing her.

Sophie was being released from the hospital. Terrance sent Josh to bring her home. She is bed-ridden. But he didn’t come home. He asked to spend the night on Josh’s couch but he told him to go home.
Sophie talked to her mom who thought she was stupid for getting pregnant while not have a job and with Terrance having problems at work. Terrance finally came home and listed to his voice mail. The first from was from Sophie telling him she was sorry that he had to find out about the baby that way, she tried to tell him before. He remembered that night. Then he got a message from her mother saying congratulation on the baby and if they were having financial problems, she would give them a loan. That pissed him off and he went and yelled at Sophie again and left the house.

Tara was going out with Louis although she told Josh she was going out with Marianna from work. They played chess, if she won, he would leave her alone, if he won they would be friends. He won. He kissed her in the parking lot and she said no more and that they couldn’t see each other again. Josh had tried to contact her a couple of times, first when Teeni has a 103 temperature and they needed children Tylenol. He ended up calling his mother who came to the rescue.

Tera went to bring Sophie dinner the night of her 10th Anniversary. Sophie talked to Tara about how she took Josh for granted and with Tara being out of work, she can relate to how Josh is feeling. Tara doesn’t give him enough credit. Tara thought about that. She went home and got ready for her Anniversary surprise. Josh’s parents came to sit with the kids. They went on a romantic carriage ride around the park and then to dinner at their favorite Italian Restaurant. They went home and started to strip down and make love on the couch and their daughter started calling them. Josh send Tara to the bedroom and put on a robe and went to his daughter. He comforted her and fell asleep on the floor in her room.
Terrance was at the gym and an old flame it on him. He told her no as he was married now. His single buddy thought he was nuts and told him he needed to go home to his pregnant wife. He did and Sophie apologized for everything and said she sometimes get insecure and doesn’t know how to talk about things. They are going to work it out.
The next day after work, Louis showed up at Tara’s office. He took her in her office and told her he would stop if she wanted him to. She told him not to stop (I don’t like Tara).

Sophie was at her doctor’s appointment – it has been 10 weeks since she found out she was pregnant and the doctor finally took her off bed rest. She wanted to look for a job. She had lunch with Tara and noticed roses in her office. Tara met Louis afterwork at a hotel where she met him every weekday for the last month. She was hooked on him He talked about his wife not even knowing when he was gone and that she was lucky her husband cared. He bought her a ticket to Vegas for a legal conference.
Terrance was happy Sophie was off bed rest but not that she was looking for a job. He wanted to be able to provide for his family. He told this to Josh and Josh told him how he never saw Tara anymore as she was always working or at the gym. Terrance told him to go join her at the gym and spend time with her. He went to the gym and didn’t see Tara. He called but she didn’t answer (normal) so he left a message. He went home and was worried about her. When she got home, she said she had to go back to work. He hugged her and smelt another man’s cologne on her. He was confused.

Sophia got a call from her mom saying her step dad had a heart attack and that she needed to come. Her mom blamed the heart attack on Desiree as she had a fight with her dad right before that. Sophie got a flight out. Her mother had changed the locks on the door and told Sophie to take Desiree away or tell her she if financially cut off. They were able to see Carl and the Desiree showed up and caused a ruckas and Carl’s chest started to heave. Sophie broke it Desiree that she was going to stay with her and that she needed to drive there tonight. Sophie left a message for Terrance. She found Desiree smoking pot in the bathroom, got her out of the house and onto the road.

Tara pestered her boss to send her to Vegas saying she would pay the airfair and hotel. She was so happy she almost got caught texting Louis telling him she was in for Vegas. She went and had a massage and her masseuse said she was tight. Tara said it was due to stress (of almost getting caught). She sent her to a psychic. The psychic asked what the two men’s names were. She got home bearing gifts, Josh got mad and stormed out. He went to the gym. Desiree showed up at 2 am at Terrance’s. They started drinking together. Desiree said she didn’t understand why Sophie wouldn’t see her real dad. Terrance had no idea but would figure it out. He thinks that Sophie and her mom misunderstand Desiree (I know where this is going).

Sophie got her mom and step-dad settled at home and then was going to head home. She was going to surprise Terrance that night as he was leaving for Vegas in the morning.
Tara got to Caesar’s in Vegas and went to the room Louis had reserved for them. She got a call from Josh and was able to talk to the kids. Josh said she was picking Sophie up at the airport so she could surprise Terrance.
Terrance got home from work and was tense due to the stress of the job. He had to land the client in Vegas or would lose his job. Desiree had a was to de-stress him and brought out a pipe. They smoked and laughed.
When Sophie got home, Josh came in with her and the house reeked of pot. She could believe Josh would let Sophie smoke pot in their house and went to the living room and found Josh with the pipe in his hand. She was livid. She kicked Terrance out of the house and said she would put his suitcase outside the door. Josh told Terrance Desiree was trouble and Terrance said he was beginning to think so too.

Josh’s phone rings, he is hoping it is Tara but it is Terrance. Terrance wants advice on how to make up to Sophie. John feels his relationship issues so doesn’t feel qualified to help him. Josh reminds Terrance to keep an eye out for Tara. The meeting with the potential client goes well for Terrance but he client hasn’t made up his mind yet. Terrance is with Lance in Vegas and he is a party guy and wants to go to where the girls are.
Tara is mixed up. She missed a couple calls from Josh and realized the girls wanted to say good night. She texted Josh telling him good night and she would call the girls in the morning. He texted he loved her, she did not text him back. She and Louis went out and Terrance thought he saw her until she kissed the guy she was with. He decided to turn the other way and head for the bathroom. Tara saw him as she was going to the bathroom and texted Louis to meet in the room. She didn’t know if Terrance had seen her. Louis told her it was fate that brought them together but Tara is not sure if she is ready to lose Josh.

Tera called Josh and had the nerve to hang up on him when he asked where she was. She accused him of keeping tabs on her. Terrance took Sophie to dinner and to surprise her by inviting her father. Well, she was surprised, so much so that she couldn’t breathe. Her father apologized for being there for leaving her and not making more of an effort to stay in her life. She finally took Terrance’s car keys and told Terrance he could find his own way back to her mom’s house. Carl’s lawyer came by the house and announced that Carl left everything to Desiree. Sophie’s mom wants Desiree to sign the house over to her and accused her of manipulating Carl in to changing his will.

Josh and Terrance were going out for drinks. Tara intercepted Terrance and begged him to not tell Josh. He told her he wouldn’t if she stopped the affair. She didn’t say she would. Terrance didn’t want to hurt Josh so he didn’t say anything and then realized if it finally came out and Josh found out that he knew, he would lose his best friend. Tera was with the kids and got a text from Louis asking to meet her at the hotel, it was an emergency. She called Josh’s mom to watch the kids. It was Louis’ wife who met her there.

Tara showed up at her psychic’s in the middle of the night. She was not happy about it. Tara told her Josh found out about Louis and that Miriam had to fix it. The psychic said Tara could expect nothing to come from her choices. She had to live with the consequences. Miriam gave her something to sleep. She woke up with dreams about her father. She had to get the kids. She went to work looking bad and her friends started to ask questions. She locked herself in her office. Sophie went to see her and Tara left saying no one understood. She had to get the kids to safety. Tara called Josh to tell him to check on the girls. It went to voice mail. Josh showed up hungover at his mom’s to take the girls to school, his mom sent him in the house to sober up and took the kids to school. When she got home, they talked while Teensi watched TV. Tara took off picking the girls up from school. She went to the house to find Teensi but she wasn’t there, she found her witchcraft book torn up and knew it was her father’s work and was going to burn down the house.

Josh went to talk to Sophie to ask her if she knew what was going on with Tara. He thought Terrance might know but he says he doesn’t. Tara went to her psychic and she told her to get in touch with her spirit animal (the raven) and that fate had made she choice for her. Sophie called Tara and asked her to go to an early dinner. Tara was talking about her psychic and not understanding anything and then she ran out. Sophie called Josh and told him, yes something was up with Tara and what had happened. Josh took the kids to his parents and was going to talk it out with Tara. He stopped for some liquid courage and got home at about 9. Tara was home and was worried about where he and girls were. He thought it ironic. He wanted to talk and so did she. She told him a story about be afraid when he got hurt that she would lose him and she built up a wall. She said she loved him and wanted him to her to bed. He did but then when he said he loved her, she said she loved him too and called him Louis. He kicked her out of the house and went to Sophie & Terrance’s. She told Sophie that Tara was cheating on him and Terrance knew about him and lied to his face about it. Sophie had no idea.

Sophie got home and saw Tara’s car. She smelled smoke as soon as she opened the door. She found furniture on fire in the back yard. Ran, called 9-1-1 and got Desiree up and went back to the house. Chelsea opened the door and came out. She found Tara throwing clothes on the fire in the yard. She got the hose and was dosing the fire with Tara fighting her when the fire department and police arrived. They detained Sophie and had the paramedics take a look at Sophie. Josh’s mother woke him and said the school called her because they couldn’t get him and said that Tara took Michelle but something was off. He turned his phone on and had 8 missed called and 5 messages, some from the school but most from Sophie. He went home and found the fire out, Tara in the back of a police car and his girls scared stiff. He told the police he had to get to his girls. They asked what was wrong with mommy. He was tired of all the lies and told them the truth. He didn’t know.

Tara woke up to find her arms and legs strapped to the bed. She was in a mental hospital. She can’t figure out what is going on. She got her restraint taken off when she said she wouldn’t hurt herself. She wanted to go home and make sure the girls were OK. They said the doctor would be in between 9AM and 4PM. Daryll, Sophie’s father was at their house talking the Tara’s psychologist (with Josh’s OK). She had psychosis (a break from reality). Sophie wants to go visit her but Terrance doesn’t want her or the baby to be put in danger. Daryll said he would go with Sophie. Terrance needed to talk to Josh and left him many messages. Finally, he went to Josh’s parents house to have it out face to face. Josh found out that his parent lost three babies (2 miscarriages and 1 still born) before they had him. When Terrance showed up, he told his mom to tell him to get lost.

Tara woke up in the mental hospital with her hand and feet bound again. The nurse freed them and told her she had visitors. They were Sophie and her dad. Tara was drugged out but they asked her if she understood what happened. She said that she was trying to protect the girl from her dad’s spirit. Tara knew they couldn’t understand and went back to her room. Josh couldn’t’ bring himself to sleep in the bed he once shared with Tara. His mom came over to take the kids to school so he could take a shower and get some rest. Terrance sent Josh, Louis information (name and address). Josh went over to Louis’s office and punched Louis in the nose breaking it. The receptionist was going to call the cops but Louis stopped her saying he did what he needed. Josh left. He ended up at the beach trying to figure out what he was going to do next. Sophie’s dad said they were willing to release Tara if she could go somewhere with supervision, Josh wouldn’t have her. Sophie called Tara’s mother. She told her that Tara’s father was schizophrenic and committed suicide and that she was afraid something would happen to Tara. Tara was welcome with her mother. Sophie and her dad went to visit Tara and told her she could go to her mom’s. She recalled the time when her father killed himself.

Terrance got big news, the guys he had been wooing decided to go pro and wanted Terrance as his agent. It was what he was hoping for. He called Sophie to tell her but she was on the phone with Tara’s mom and said she would get back to him. There was celebration at his office and Desiree showed up to take him to lunch to celebrate. The receptionist didn’t look to happy until he introduced her as his sister (Desiree added in-law). Desiree didn’t know what she wanted to do with her life and Terrance told her to go for her dreams. She asked what happened if she couldn’t have them (Desiree likes Terrance but Terrance doesn’t get that yet)

Tara’s mom took her home. On the way home, they stopped at the hardware store where her mom worked to get some paperwork straightened out. Tara make a secret purchase. She got home and said she was hungry. Her mom went out to get food, Tara took this opportunity to confront her father. She went down to the basement, taking the rope she bought at the store, made a noose. She could hear her phone ring but ignored it. She put the noose around her neck and jumped from the chair. Sophie couldn’t get ahold of Tara so called her mom. Her mom saw Tara hanging there. Tara was on the couch talking to her dad, he told her she was just like him, only thinking about herself and not the others she is affecting. He told her she needed to go back and make amends in her life.
