Description

Gabrielle Shaw had been very content with her life. It wasn’t perfect, but she enjoyed her position teaching drama at Le Valley, an all-girls grade school in Oregon. When the school begins to have financial troubles, not only is her position eliminated, but the hip new director, Adam Hawkins, manages to persuade her step-mother to leave her entire estate to Le Valley School. In an unfortunate accident, Gaby destroys a rare vehicle that is Hawkins’ pride and joy and at the same time becomes an unwitting witness to a death that could send her to her grave. With no job, no home, and fearful of Hawkins’ revenge, Gaby heads across the country to the Finger Lakes area of New York State, child-home of her grandfather, looking for potential relatives who might lend her a hand. Adam Hawkins and his girlfriend, Monica, head east to track her down—Adam, because Gaby knows too much about the recent death of a local philanthropist to be on the loose; Monica, because she believes Gaby holds the key to four lost paintings by French artist Camille Pissarro. Gaby lands in Otter Cove. It has become a safe haven and she has made a few trusted friends—a busy widower named Nancy who hires Gaby to work in her cafe, elderly twins Jim and Joe, and an enigmatic musician named Hobart. But it is now November. Winter is coming. Gaby knows Hawkins hasn’t given up looking for her. It’s also time for her to move out of her three-season cabin and look for a proper job and place to live. At the last minute, another acquaintance, Erick, offers her temporary accommodation in his historic lakeside inn while he prepares it for winter. But after one ‘cold night in hell’, Gaby finds herself teamed with Erick in a chase which takes them on a winding journey across the country. Gaby soon discovers the lure of millions of dollars has created a caravan—several members of which will use any means to get what they want—no matter how hot it gets.

Winter Pursuit

Norah Loring is a single thirty-two-year-old English woman playing it safe- she lives with her mother, teaches at a local university, and is engaged in a long-term relationship that is going nowhere. But when her mother suddenly dies, Norah’s life quickly derails—she discovers her father, long thought to have been killed at the end of World War II, may still be alive. Against a wintry background, her pursuit of the truth about her father propels her across three continents. At cross purposes with her quest is the lure of a fortune in Nazi gold and the two men, one American and one Russian, who will stop at nothing—not even murder— to possess it. But perhaps the most dangerous aspect of Norah’s journey is when she is thrown off her feet by a man who unwittingly becomes involved with her, entering her life just when she least expects- or welcomes- the attention.

For a Rainy Day

Rose Saxby is in her mid-thirties, single, and finally hitting her stride as a wedding photographer in Norfolk, Virginia. She has worked hard to get where she is, overcoming a childhood where she and her brother Rye were frequently left to fend for themselves by parents who were too restless to settle down. It comes as a complete surprise when Rose learns she has inherited an estate in another Norfolk—a county in England. But as Rose and Rye quickly discover, Saxby Hall comes with a lot of baggage. They are ill-prepared for the grave consequences they must face as they become acquainted with their new home and with their distant cousin, who will stop at nothing to remove Rose, Rye, and Saxby Hall’s quirky residents to further his own greedy plans. The Saxbys have also managed to attract the attention of the police, who are not happy that the presence of the two Americans has rained so much trouble on their turf. All roads eventually lead to a frozen lake in Sweden, where truths—and lies—are finally revealed, and to a crossroads, where Rose and Rye must ultimately decide whether to accept a different definition of home and family.
