Overview

After a recent divorce, Joanie Williams struggles to get her life back in order, but working in a nursery full-time while raising her two daughters, Natalie and Amelia, isn't as easy as it seemed. One daughter is flunking three subjects, and the other is riddled with tattoos.

Already late for her Suddenly Single support group two nights before Christmas, Joanie rushes to the church only to run into her ex-husband, Mitchell, who claims to be there to meet Pastor Frank. But as they try to leave, the door is stuck, and the lock won't budge. With escape on the mind, from the building and each other, Joanie and Mitchell scavenge for a way out, but what they find is a key to emotions that have been locked away and ignored too long.

Back at home, Natalie is reprimanding Amelia for allowing her boyfriend to come over when no one else is home when suddenly the doorbell rings...and Pastor Frank is on the other side. Forced to entertain Pastor Frank while Amelia and her boyfriend hide, Natalie discovers that she can't hold her family together herself, and Amelia realizes that she can't afford to let her.

Meet the Author

Kim O'Brien grew up in Bronxville, New York, in an old Victorian house that her mother claimed was haunted in order to keep her and her brothers out of the attic. Her mother's ghost stories served not only that purpose, but also sparked her imagination and love of books and writing. Kim has worked for IBM as an editor and speechwriter, and holds an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College in New York.

She currently lives in The Woodlands, Texas, with her husband and two daughters - who do not allow her to tell scary stories - and is hard at work on her next novel.
