New York Times bestselling author and NAACP Image Award winner Stacey Abrams, writing under her pen name Selena Montgomery, tells a chilling tale of lost love, dark family secrets, and hard-won redemption.
Mara Reed has been stirring up trouble since she was eighteen—running scams, living on the edge, always on the run. Now, when two thugs are after her with murder on their minds, she’s forced into hiding in her small Texas hometown. But as she’s cornered in an alley, only seconds from death, an unexpected rescuer comes to her aid…
A forensic anthropologist, Dr. Ethan Stuart is investigating a gruesome discovery—nearly one hundred dead bodies dating back fifty years—a mystery linked to the church once headed by Mara’s father. Ethan needs Mara’s help; she needs his protection. Their search for a shocking, devastating truth could lead them to forgiveness and salvation... if they survive.
I only recently found out that a woman I’ve met and greatly admire also writes my kind of literature. Stacey writes as beautifully as she speaks, crafting creative stories and quirky, interesting characters. The dialogue is crisp and often funny. And the sexy scenes - righteous bodice rippers! I’m going to to read all her books.
