Marilyn Gardner is up to her old tricks with another book so suspenseful and full of chills, that you won’t be able to put it down, until you know for sure… who done it!
School teacher, Gabrielle Phillips only thinks she has found safety at last when three years after her divorce, she finally returns to her grandfather’s home in snowy Winsom for the holidays. Her grandfather is determined to set her up with her one-time chum, widowed Ty Larrimore, and his two motherless children. But then a stalker frightens Bree by threatening her, and her twelve year old daughter, Becca.
She thinks she can handle the problem on her own. In her heart she knows it is only her aggressive and abusive ex-husband, Bobby Gene frantically trying to extort money for his addictive drug habit. Or is it? She can’t prove it. Where else can she run when she is still driving the same old car, and using the same cell phone number as when she was married to him? Bree is one of these people who abhors having to ask for help. Yet, Ty insists on being there at every turn, to help her face the threat and fear of her stalker.
Then Bobby Gene turns up dead. If it isn’t her ex-husband, then who has he tangled with that is even meaner and bader? What will she have to do to keep her family safe?
Conger Book Reviews
My byline has appeared on everything from children’s literature to senior citizen fiction, from news writing to poetry, fiction and non-fiction. I have taught a successful creative writing course and been involved in a program teaching adults to read. Credits include Wings ePress, three books of daily devotions for the religious market, as well as a multitude of columns/stories in newspapers and magazines. I have placed in the top three in national contests and treasure a Writing Excellence Award from my college.
I have a loving and supportive husband and two grown daughters who have given me a total of nine perfect, handsome and intelligent grandchildren—so says this prejudiced grandmother. Since my first memory, music and books have been my passion. Music continues to feed my soul. I have sung in choral groups all across the eastern half of the U.S., done solo and ensemble work and am currently a member of a large chorale. Today I have books in every room in my house, and never go out the door without reading material under my arm. With equal passion, I avoid cooking and cleaning house.
