From the New York Times bestselling author of Dream Eyes and Copper Beach, a brand-new quintessential Jayne Ann Krentz romantic suspense.
'A spine-tingling tale of a small town harbouring deadly secrets. With humour, stunning suspense and romance: River Road is a complete page-turner' Booklist (starred)
It's been thirteen years since Lucy Sheridan was in Summer River . . .
Her last visit there - as a teenager - had ended in embarrassment, when the boy she had a crush on dragged her away from a wild party. She'd never understood his urgency, nor why her punishment from her family seemed so much worse than her crime.
Now Lucy is learning there was more to the story than she realized at the time. Mason Fletcher had saved her from a very nasty crime that night - and soon afterward, Tristan - the cold-blooded rich kid who'd targeted her - disappeared mysteriously, his body never found.
A lot has changed in thirteen years . . .
Lucy now works for a private investigation firm as a forensic genealogist, while Mason has quit the police force to run a successful security firm with his brother. Even Summer River has changed, from a sleepy farm town into a trendy upscale spot in California's wine country.
But one man has stayed the same
Mason is still a protector at heart. And when he and Lucy make a shocking discovery, Mason's quietly fierce instincts kick into gear. He saved Lucy once, and he'll save her again. But this time, she insists on playing a role in her own rescue . . .
