Overview
She's either being stalked or losing her mind. A job at a camp in the rustic and often rugged landscape of West Texas offers Maribel Montgomery a chance to escape both, especially if she makes sure no one knows she's there. But when the body of a woman washes up in the river on her first morning, her hope of a safe place to start over are swept away. The suspicion she's being watched follows her to her new home, and Maribel is forced to take a stand or keep running. Does she have the courage to face the danger stirring at the Pool of Siloam Camp? If she doesn't, another girl might die. If she tries and fails, it could be her. Circumstances force her into the acquaintance of Conner Pierce—a man with secrets of his own. Can Maribel risk working with him in order to save the next victim and find a missing girl? Or is he the killer?
Description
She blames herself for the suicide of a teenage boy. Now Maribel Montgomery is either being stalked or losing her mind. A job at a camp in the rustic and often rugged landscape of West Texas offers Maribel Montgomery a chance to escape both, especially if she makes sure no one knows she's there. But when the body of a woman washes up in the river on her first morning, her hope of a safe place to start over is swept away. Circumstances force her into the acquaintance of Conner Pierce—a man with secrets of his own. Conner's interest in Maribel is more than just a physical attraction. But his determination to rescue her from herself only pushes her farther away. A troubled teenage girl needs Maribel's help. The terminally ill woman she works for needs her protection almost as much as she needs her company. And somewhere out there, another girl has gone missing and no one but Maribel seems to care. A growing sense of duty born of a selfless love keeps her from running again when the familiar feeling she's being watched returns. When the attacks get personal she'll have to decide who she can trust, starting with herself. But before she can trust herself, she'll have to learn how to forgive herself. It'll take the persistence of a man she'd rather avoid, the sage wisdom of a dying woman, and the desperate needs of a lonely girl to make her realize the power of forgiveness. Lingering self doubt from past mistakes threaten to cripple her until she finds out that love is the remedy for fear. Does she have the courage to face the danger stirring at the Pool of Siloam Camp? If she doesn't, another girl might die. If she tries and fails, it could be her. Can Maribel risk working with him in order to save the next victim and find a missing girl? Or is he the killer?
