"A nicely twisted tale... light reading for a quiet evening."—I Love a Mystery
No one told Cara why her father abandoned her when she was a baby.
They had their reasons.
Gil March is lying, he's sneaking around, and he's certainly not acting like his usual too-perfect self. But could he really be cheating on Leigh's cousin Cara? Leigh doesn't think so, but when Cara shows up in the middle of the night with tears in her eyes, Leigh is determined to find out. Little does she know that what Gil is hiding is only the tip of an iceberg. There are more than a few things her family hasn't told her about the circumstances of her cousin's birth—and the reality is chilling.
When the father who abandoned Cara as a baby suddenly reappears in her life, everyone's world is turned upside down. Can this man stop the sudden blackmail, kidnapping, and threats to the family—or is he behind them?
