In San Francisco, St. Timothy’s Hospital ER specialist Dr. Natalie Bishop hears about a bestselling novel, Fallen Angel, written by an unknown author Garrett Malone that eerily sounds like what happened a decade ago to her college roommate Emily Parish. Natalie thinks back to the Fabulous Four (she, Emily, Laura, and Madison) and that fatal day that changed all their lives.

When his irate girlfriend hits Tribune editor Cole Parish with a stapler, his friend takes him to nearby St. Timothy’s. There he runs into Natalie. They were attracted to one another when the death of his sister ended their relationship and remain engrossed with each other even now though Natalie mentioning a book surprises him. When they try to meet the author at a book signing, he flees from Natalie or Laura who also arrived at the bookstore. Natalie and Cole agree to investigate further the claim of Malone that one of the other surviving Fab Four killed Emily.

ALL SHE EVER WANTED is a fabulous investigative romance tale that grips the audience once Natalie learns of the novel obviously written by an insider but how that reflects the worse moment of her life. The lead couple is a fine pairing as both are very attracted to one another, but the ghost of his sister keeps them apart as it has for a decade. Though unnecessary coincidence staples and sutures the first meeting between Natalie and Cole, fan will enjoy this tense thriller wondering how Malone knows what he does and whether murder did occur.
