Blurb:
Clare’s little sister, Lynnie, was abducted twenty-seven years
ago. Now the retired detective who has never been able to let go of the cold
case has a lead. Lynnie could be alive!
Clare’s neighbor, Joe, an occasional friend until now, gives her
support and…wants more than friendship.
Clare’s mom, Amanda, thrown together again with her ex-husband
into a crisis discovers forgotten love beneath the regrets.
Clare’s sixteen year old daughter, Shara, decides to run from her
problems instead of facing them.
A devoted sister, a turmoiled mom and a rebellious daughter find
their way back to each other in this contemporary ebook about three generations
who discover love can knit their family back together again.
Excerpt:
After a short pause, her mother
explained, “Detective Grove called me. He already spoke to your
father.”
Clare’s heart skipped a beat. “Detective
Grove?” The picture of a tall lean man in a rumpled suit flashed in her
mind—the man who had taken over Lynnie’s investigation after the patrol
officers’ first visit.
“Do you remember him?” her
mother asked gently—too gently—and Clare had a shivery premonition of what
could be coming.
“Didn’t he retire?” she
asked her mom, her heart racing now.
“Yes, he did. But he’s not
really keen on retirement and he’s been…working a few cold cases.” Her
mother’s voice was edgier than usual and a little wobbly, too.
“What are you trying to tell
me, Mom?” Clare’s hands became sweaty as she thought about all the
possibilities. Lynnie’s face at three and a half was still so vivid in her
mind—the face they’d used on posters…the face she’d envisioned floating in a
river…the face on the body in nightmares that had been buried in a ditch. The
not knowing had always been worse than knowing. The not knowing is what had
torn them all apart. Clare really believed that if the police had found
Lynnie’s body somewhere, maybe they could have gone on as a family.
Maybe.
“He wants to meet with us
tomorrow morning. You, me and your dad. He thinks he has a lead.”
