After escaping her marriage, Jenn Galbraith hoped to start a new life with her four-year-old daughter, Emily. But Jenn’s ex-husband has other plans. Evan follows them to their new home in Vermont, determined to take their lives. He succeeds only in killing himself and hospitalizing Emily. Comatose and hovering between life and death, Emily meets Tara, a little girl who’s also searching for a way back to the world of the living. Upon waking, Emily is delighted to find Tara’s presence has followed her home.

Even in death, Evan seeks to stake his claim to Emily. His vengeful spirit pursues her and is repeatedly thwarted by Tara, the ghost of a child. Tara can hold Evan at bay, but she also has her own agenda: Emily is Tara’s last chance to live again.


“I am, quite possibly, the most popular recluse ever. Not many shut-ins have a 200-member fan club, a bank account in the seven-figure range, and hundreds of men lining up to pay for undivided attention.

I give them my attention - they give me money and secrets. The money I have grown used to. The secrets are getting harder to take.

Then, with one chance encounter, everything changes and I have to decide: Keep the secrets and my safety? Or risk everything to save someone else?”





Her name is Bond. Jamie Bond. And she is licensed to kill any pre-nup you can throw at her.

Catching cheating husbands became Jamie Bond's life when her father was shot and wounded on the job, forcing Jamie to take over the family business: The Bond Agency. But three years later, the PI is shocked when the gun that wounded her father surfaces during a high-profile murder trial. Is this the connection Jamie's been waiting for to finally nail her father's shooter? But, oddly enough, Derek Bond doesn't seem interested. In fact, if Jamie didn't know better she'd say he's even trying to stop her from looking into it. Along with her team of bombshell investigators, Jamie suddenly finds herself in the middle of a cold case that's heating up the media, dodging old grudges and new enemies, while questioning the motives of those closest to her. If she can live with the truth, the secrets Jamie uncovers may bring down more than a marriage this time.

The flash and cash flaunted by some of their clients was tempting….so tempting….and wouldn’t it be a piece of cake to get it for themselves?
