(A Cape Trouble Novel)
(July 24, 2015)
The faint creek of the floorboards was her only warning...
Cape Trouble, a tiny Oregon Coast town, was named for the dangerous off-shore reefs. But some of its citizens seek refuge from their own troubles...which have a way of following them.
Emily Drake has clung to her solitude for four long years after the tragic death of her husband and child, filling empty days stitching quilts that will be hierlooms for other families, never her own. It takes a terror-filled escape from a midnight intruder to open her eyes. She desperately wants to embrace life again...if death's next approach isn't utterly silent.
Detective Sean Holbeck is powerfully drawn to his new neighbor, a woman threatened by an unknown enemy. He's already investigating a murder that he fears is just the beginning. Until he knows why the victim was chosen, he can't stop a killer...or protect Emily, haunted by a terrible mistake that may hold the key to understanding an enraged man set on vengeance.
Dark threads of past and present, guilt and grief and pain, have twisted together until only love and trust might untagle them before a killer strikes again...
