Overview

In EMBERS, USA Today bestselling author Antoinette Stockenberg delivers an emotional, suspenseful and humorous tale set on the coast of Maine, a story that involves an old secret buried in the ashes of an historic fire -- ashes that become embers, easily fanned into flames.

To Meg Hazard, it seemed like a good idea at the time: squeezing her extended family into the back rooms of their rambling Victorian home and converting the rest of the house into a Bed and Breakfast in the coastal town of Bar Harbor, Maine. But that was before the leaky roof, the balky furnace, and the fuel oil spill in the basement. That was before the inheritance of an exquisite, museum-quality dollhouse with a haunting story of its own to tell.

And that was before her much-loved, much-younger and very beautiful sister Allie fell in love with Chicago cop Tom Wyler, who was at the inn simply to put himself back together physically and emotionally after a shattering episode of violence back home. Meg, the Responsible One, has complete sympathy for everyone. What she doesn't have is complete control over her emotions ....

NYT bestselling author - Katherine Stone
"EMBERS is a delight -- a beautifully crafted, wholly involving story that glows bright with romance and smolders with intrigue. Antoinette Stockenberg masterfully explores the complexities of family, sisters, and love, creating relationships that sparkle with warmth, wit, and authenticity. I thoroughly enjoyed it!"
Publishers Weekly
"A deft blend of mystery and romance ... Stockenberg, who won a RITA for EMILY"S GHOST, is sure to win more kudos for EMBERS."
Affaire de Coeur
"With the publication of EMBERS, Antoinette Stockenberg has become a major force to contend with in the arena of women's contemporary mainstream romantic fiction. The novel is a moving work involving obsession, betrayal, and thwarted passions ... a book that has 'classic' written all over it."

Meet the Author

USA Today bestselling novelist Antoinette Stockenberg grew up wanting to be a cowgirl and have her own horse (her great-grandfather bred horses for the carriage trade back in the old country), but the geography just didn't work out: there weren't many ranches in Chicago. Her other, more doable dream was to write books, and after stints as secretary, programmer, teacher, grad student, boatyard hand, office manager and magazine writer (in that order), she achieved that goal, writing over a dozen novels, several of them with paranormal elements. One of them is the RITA award-winning EMILY'S GHOST.

Stockenberg's books have been published in a dozen languages and are often set in quaint New England harbor towns, always with a dose of humor. She writes about complex family relationships and the fallout that old, unearthed secrets can have on them. Sometimes there's an old murder. Sometimes there's an old ghost. Sometimes once-lovers find one another after half a lifetime apart.

Her work has been compared to writers as diverse as Barbara Freethy, Nora Roberts, LaVyrle Spencer and Mary Stewart by critics and authors alike, and her novels have appeared on bestseller lists in USA Today as well as the national bookstore chains. Her website features sample chapters, numerous reviews, many photos, and an enchanting Christmas section. www.antoinettestockenberg.com

    Another winner

    I thought this book was one of her best. This author really understands sisters and how families work, and I absolutely loved the cop hero. I never saw the surprise ending coming! Just an all around fun read and very enjoyable romance.

    Mystery lite and very enjoyable

    I enjoy these lite mysteries as opposed to dark murder mysteries. Embers did not let me down. I enjoyed the characters and plot was great with twist and turns. A good mystery always leaves a reader wanting to know more about the characters. In this book the elaborate dollhouse was a character and I wanted to know more about it. A great read for end of summer day on your deck.
