About the Book

Two years after a violent break-in left Elizabeth Seymour widowed and with blood on her hands, she’s finally starting over in the little town of Avalon, Ohio, with her daughter, Haley. She has the house of her dreams, a good church, and friends she can rely on. Everything seems to be falling into place—until she receives a threatening note from Veronica Sadowsky, the sister of the man Elizabeth shot, the same woman who tried to ruin her life once before. This time, though, Veronica won’t stop until she gets revenge.

When Elizabeth’s home goes up in flames, she turns to family friend, Doctor Gilbert Callahan, a widowed father of three. He invites her and Haley to stay with his family. As Veronica draws Elizabeth into a game of increasing stakes, she and Gilbert only grow closer, learning to trust and rely on one another. But Elizabeth’s presence in Gilbert’s home endangers his family and creates tension with his oldest son. Preserving peace in the house is hard enough, but when Veronica comes after Haley, Elizabeth will risk everything—including her life—to get her child back.

Excerpt

Something clattered to the floor in the kitchen.

Elizabeth Seymour’s eyes sprang open.  What could that have been? She slipped from her bed and listened at the bedroom door. 

Unease twisted in her gut. That familiar tendency to  anticipate the worst stirred.  She brushed it off. The Lord does not give us a spirit of fear. but of a sound mind.  Father, give me courage.    It was probably just her husband Jack, coming in and accidentally knocking something down.  He’d told her  he would be home late.

A floorboard in the hall creaked as someone tiptoed down the hall. She knew it wasn’t Haley,   since their daughter was staying at a friend’s house overnight.  It had to be Jack, but  the furtive steps sent  a shot of adrenaline through her system.  She’d just wait. 

The door pushed open , and Elizabeth backed up, barely managing  to keep her footing.  She gasped. 

A man smiled at her . 

It wasn’t Jack. 

About Becca Hart

Well, I grew up in Warren, Ohio, a small town up in the northeastern corner of the state, a hop, skip, and a jump from the Pennsylvania border. Almost what my mom used to call a hook-and-plum town–you hook your head around the corner, and you’re plum out of town!

My husband and I were sent out here to Colorado about a decade ago by the Army, and I fell in love with the Rocky Mountains before I even stepped off the plane. One thing not widely known is that every fictional town I write about (at least so far) is based on Warren, partly because I’m most familiar with it but also because part of my heart’s still there.

Something else a lot of people may not know is most of my male leads’ personalities are based on my husband and my dad. And Elizabeth Seymour is based on me and my mom put together. Hint: this is why she’s a bit absentminded 🙂
