Mallory’s mother died fifteen years ago. But her father’s last words on the phone were unmistakable: “Find . . . mother.”

Shame and confusion have kept Mallory Davis from her home for the last fifteen years, but when her dad mysteriously dies on his mail boat route, she doesn’t have any choice but to go back to Mermaid Point. Mallory believes her father was murdered and childhood sweetheart Kevin O’Connor, game warden in Downeast Maine, confirms her suspicions. But Kevin is wary of helping Mallory in her search. She broke his heart—and left—without a word, years ago.

When Mallory begins receiving threats on her own life—and her beloved teenage daughter, Haylie—their search intensifies. There’s a tangled web within the supposed murder, and it involves much more than what meets the eye.

As answers begin to fall into place, Mallory realizes her search is about more than finding her father’s killer—it is also about finding herself again . . . and possibly about healing what was broken so long ago with Kevin. She just has to stay alive long enough to put all the pieces together.

What's your favorite chore? 
Would you believe I love to cook? It’s kind of a newfound love I discovered when I started eating healthy. Now I love trying new recipes.

Would you rather go to the future or go to the past? 
Shh, don’t let this out, but I love the past. I cut my writing teeth on prairie romance, and I still love the occasional foray into historical realm. I’m particularly fond of the early 1900s, and my Mercy Falls series is set during that time. Downton Abbey has fed that love of the past!

What’s one thing you must have/do in the morning?
Coffee! I’m a total coffee nut, but it must be really excellent coffee, preferably roasted on a Dietrich roaster which brings out the full flavor of the bean and is gentler on the stomach. I particularly love it blended with MCT oil and butter. :)

Kayden’s mission should have been simple — she was sent to kill the prince . . . not to fall in love with him.

Within the palace walls, Kayden has discovered that things are not as she expected. Is there more to the royal family, or . . . is there a more sinister depth to Drey’s mission?

Dvarius thought his mind was made up — but will he have the resolve to see it through?

Between attacks from outside the palace — and within, will the Prince live long enough to choose his Queen?

And will Kayden choose to follow her head . . . or her heart — knowing that her decision could very well make her a target as well!

Favorite season? 
Winter

Would you rather go to the future or go to the past? 
Honestly, I think I would rather go to the past... going to the future seems far too risky. There's no way to know what you would be walking into.

What’s one thing you must have/do in the morning? 
COFFEE! I must have coffee in the morning!
