Three years after the sudden death of her husband, Lucy Blacker Swift finally has things under control. Leaving behind the cutthroat world of Washington, Lucy and her two children move to a Vermont farmhouse and start to rebuild their lives. But a string of unexplained events - late-night hang-ups, a bullet through a window - threatens her new life.
Unwilling to turn to her powerful father-in-law, Senator Jack Swift, Lucy tracks down Sebastian Redwing, an international security expert her late husband asked her to contact if she ever needed help. Sebastian, though, wants nothing to do with her problems...or with a woman he's been half in love with since her wedding day.
But Sebastian knows he has no choice, and reluctantly he becomes drawn with Lucy into a dangerous tangle of blackmail, vengeance and betrayal, with Lucy's powerful family - and Sebastian's troubled past - smack in the middle.
The Carriage House
Fun and a little hard work. That’s all Tess Haviland has in mind when Ike Grantham pays her for her graphic design work on the run-down nineteenth-century carriage house on Boston’s North Shore.
Then Ike disappears and Tess finds herself with much more than a simple weekend project to get her out of the city. It’s not just the rumours that the carriage house is haunted - it’s the neighbours: six-year-old Dolly Thorne, her reclusive babysitter, Harley Beckett...and especially Dolly’s father, Andrew Thorne, who has his own ideas about why Tess has turned up next door.
But when Tess discovers a human skeleton in her dirt cellar, she begins to ask questions about the history of the carriage house, the untimely death of Andrew's wife...and Ike’s disappearance. Questions a desperate killer wants to silence before the truth reveals that someone got away with murder.
