A Classic Tale of Romantic Suspense…Set in Port Jackson, Alabama in 1991
Past sins haunt this town…In the steamy dog days of an Alabama August, Private Investigator Teresa Worth is struggling with two new cases while living with the personal anguish of trying to find her young daughter, who has been kidnapped by her ex-husband.
Wells Talmadge, the son of wealthy and powerful locals, has his own family problems, including illicit love affairs, gambling and a possible takeover of his chemical company.
When murder strikes, Wells is caught between blood ties and justice. He means to beat Teresa to the murderer, but her skills as an investigator, and his attraction to her, threaten to tear his world apart.
Wells underestimates Teresa, but she misjudged his powers, too, of seduction and attraction. As she closes in on the killer and finally has a solid lead to finding her daughter, a hurricane hits, threatening everything she cares about.
