One of the very best things about the writing life is that you never arrive as an author. There is always something new to try. Before I started The Inn at Ocean’s Edge, I examined what suspense really is. It’s not just that something scary or bad is about to happen, but it’s that need to know what is going to happen next. So I decided to pull out the stops and try to have different layers of suspense in this new novel. Not just that Claire is the target of a killer, but to really up the personal stakes suspense with a secret that is driving everything else that happens in the novel.

I’m so excited to hear what readers think about my experiment. I’ll say this—it sure made it fun for me to write!

Here’s a little bit about the novel:

A vacation to Sunset Cove was her way of celebrating and thanking her parents. After all, Claire Dellamore's childhood was like a fairytale. But with the help of Luke Elwell, Claire discovers that fairytale was really an elaborate lie . . .

The minute she steps inside the grand Inn at Ocean's Edge, Claire Dellamare knows something terrible happened there. She feels it in her bones. Her ensuing panic attack causes a scene, upsetting her parents. Claire attempts to quiet her nerves with a walk on the beach, to no avail. She's at too great a distance to make out details, but she believes she witnesses a murder on a nearby cliff. When local police find no evidence of foul play, they quickly write off the "nervous" woman's testimony as less than credible.

But Luke Rocco, home on leave from the Coast Guard, has reason to believe Claire. Years ago when his mother went missing, Luke's father suspected she'd been murdered. He died never having convinced the police to investigate. So when an employee of the grand hotel doesn't show up for work, Luke steps in to help Claire track down the missing woman.
As Claire and Luke put together the pieces of a decades-old mystery, they discover that some family secrets refuse to stay buried. And some passions are worth killing for.
