Deeanne Gist

J. Mark Bertrand


This is a great book for those who love suspense but don't have a lot of time to read. The book draws you in immediately and is difficult to put down, but is short enough to complete in a couple of hours so you don't have to ignore your family completely! It has the perfect balance of characters -- the handsome rich young playboy, the reporter intent on searching out the truth, the innocent and hardworking heroine, the standoffish gardener, and the rude policeman. There are plenty of opportunities for romance, humor, and false leads that keep you guessing right up to the end! Deanne and J. Mark make a great team. I hope the work together on more books.


Deeanne Gist, the bestselling author of A Bride Most Begrudging and The Measure of a Lady, has a background in education and journalism. Her credits include People magazine, Parents, and Parenting. With a line of parenting products called "I Did It!® Productions" and a degree from Texas A&M, she continues her writing and speaking. She and her family live in Houston, Texas.

J. Mark Bertrand has an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Houston. After one hurricane too many, he left Houston and relocated with his wife Laurie to the plains of South Dakota.


In the shadows of Charleston, someone is watching her... Rylee Monroe, a dogwalker in Charleston's wealthiest neighborhood, never feared the streets at night. But now a thief is terrorizing the area and worse, someone seems to be targeting her.

Reporter Logan Woods is covering the break-ins with the hope of publishing them as a true-crime book. The more he digs, the more he realizes this beguiling dogwalker seems to be at the center of everything. As danger draws ever closer, Logan must choose: Chase the girl, the story, or plunge into the shadows after the villain who threatens everything?
