Synopses & Reviews
It wasnt easy getting to Shadow Point. Turns out its even harder to leave.
Madison McPeake, not in the best mood most of the time, has just been not-quite fired, told her brother is dead, discovered shes responsible for a five-year old niece shes never met and realized she has to go all the way to San Diego to see to her brother's affairs.
Isolated from the world by geography and a navy base bristling with security, Shadow Point is scarcely habitableat least Madison thinks so. Coping with the living conditions while getting to know her niece is a daily challenge. Things gets easier when the next-door neighbor, Dr. Alice Piper, seems as eager to share smoldering glances as Madison is. But somethings not right and Madisons questions about her brothers death go unanswered.
Madisons not sure if unnerving events are actually subtle warnings to stop her inquiries. The sexy, alluring Pipe doesnt seem to think anythings amiss, which only compounds Madisons fears. And every time she makes up her mind to pack up her niece and go, it's as if someoneor somethinghas decided she should stay.
Debut writer Amy Briant has crafted a heroine with more vices than graces in Madison McPeake, who narrates the mystery and passionand hair-raising surprises of Shadow Point.
