HER SISTER, book 7 in my Search For Love series, is contemporary women's fiction, part romance, part mystery. For this sneak peek I've given you the opening of the prologue which happened 27 years before the present day storyline. I hope it draws you in!
Where is Lynnie? Where did she go?
In her mind, five-year-old Clare Thaddeus called to her little sister—Come back, Lynnie. Please come back.
The huge policeman crouched down in front of Clare's mother at the sofa and said in a deep, slow voice, "Mrs. Thaddeus, I know you're terribly upset. But I need details. We've got an hour before daylight. If your daughter wandered outside—"
Clare's father, who'd been talking to another man in blue, glanced at her, and Clare huddled down deeper into the big green armchair. Her dad didn't come to her but rather went to her mom, sank down beside her and wrapped his arm around her. Then he spoke to the officer. "Our daughter, Lynnie, is three. She would never go outside into the dark on her own."
"Tell us again where you were last night," the policeman demanded in a not-so-nice voice.
"I worked late, preparing a brief."
