Zoe is an interior designer with a unique sense of style. But even more uncanny is her sense of what's going on under the surface, the secrets a house can hold.
At the moment, though, Zoe isn't concerned about a client's space. She's more worried about what's going on in her own house in Whispering Springs, Arizona, where she lives with her new husband, private investigator Ethan Truax. After a whirlwind courtship, and a dangerous adventure, they've gambled on commitment, hoping that their powerful attraction can help them learn to live together despite their utterly opposite personalities.
But newlywed life is suddenly interrupted when a shadowy figure from Zoe's past shows up in Whispering Springs, and her closest friend is put at terrible risk. For Zoe and Arcadia Ames share a shocking secret. And as they seek to protect the truth, they must join together, and with Ethan's help, accept a very dangerous dare...
Truth or Dare follows on from Light in Shadow, a romance novel whose plot unfolds only a few weeks before the action in this one. For the reader unfamiliar with the back story revealed in the earlier book, the author sketches in the broad outlines of the whirlwind courtship and unlikely marriage of psychic interior designer Zoe Truax and her brand new husband Ethan, a private investigator. But before they settle into domestic bliss in this sequel, a figure from the past intrudes on their happiness, threatening not only Zoe but her best friend Arcadia, with whom she shared a harrowing adventure in the madhouse known as Candle Lake Manor. Attractive people in plush surroundings, good local colour and enough melodrama to keep the plot moving are bestseller Krentz's stock in trade, and as usual, she delivers the goods. - Jane Adams, Amazon.com
