Workaholic Camille Ashland is at the top of her game. She has built a thriving business, has a lovely daughter, and lives in a newly decorated home. The forty-four-year-old widow doesn't have time to be lonely, and a relationship is at the bottom of her list. On Valentine's Day eve, in the middle of her busy chocolate shop, Camille suffers a heart attack and has a near-death experience that lasts three-and-a-half minutes. Revived, she can recall little detail about what she has experienced-but something inside keeps whispering that it was divine. She wishes she could remember more fully. For a complete stress buster, her doctor sends Camille on an Austrian vacation to a German-language school in Vienna. When Gunther Christove walks into the classroom, every woman takes notice-especially Camille. After several dreamlike flashbacks, Camille is convinced she's either crazy, or someone or something beyond this earth is trying to tell her something. Without realizing it at first, Camille becomes caught up in an investigation surrounding the school, one that also involves Gunther's brother, Father Florian Christove. As she and Gunther grow close, the mysterious flashbacks become more frequent and compelling-almost demanding. Will her three-and-a-half minutes between life and death destroy her second chance at happiness, or turn her life into a banquet of love?"
