By W.L. Brooks
Romantic Suspense

A single mother and owner of the town diner, Charlie McKay couldn’t
be happier with her life in Blue Creek. Taking care of everyone around
her is a labor of love, but the secret she’s keeping about her
daughter’s parentage lurks beneath the surface. With the scars of the
past still not healed, Charlie isn’t interested in adding a man to her
life, even if that man is the oh-so-tempting Craig Sutton.

Determined to own his own bar, as his father had, Craig Sutton is a
man on a mission. But wanting to enjoy small town life is only one of
the reasons he moved to the mountains of North Carolina. Whether
meaning to or not, Craig can’t keep from getting involved with the McKay
family, and the closer he gets to Charlie and her daughter the more
entangled he becomes.

In Blue Creek secrets have always run deep, and someone is now trying
to expose Charlie’s in a disturbing way. She isn’t the only one with

relationship between her and Craig. As hidden truths are revealed and
danger increases, Charlie must find a way to face the past or lose

Twenty minutes later, she put the finishing touches on her meatloaf. She

cranked the timer for another fifteen minutes and went to set the table. She
had just put out the forks when she remembered the box. Maybe one of her
sisters had sent them something. Out on the porch, Charlie took a few minutes
trying to figure out how to get the thing inside—it weighed a ton. Finally, she
decided to open the package right where it was. From the smell, something had
gone bad. There was no way she was bringing it inside her house, much less her
kitchen. Maybe if she hadn’t forgotten about the darn thing, it wouldn’t have
had a chance to spoil. “It’s freezing out here, so it isn’t my fault,” she told
the box. Shaking her head, Charlie used a paring knife to cut the tape. She
opened the flaps, wincing at the stench, and looked inside. Charlie rushed to
the porch railing and emptied her stomach. She closed the box, her hands
shaking. It couldn’t be! Oh, God.
