Overview

Bestselling author Janelle Taylor’s novels of romantic suspense deliver it all -- desire, deception, and thrilling danger. In Haunting Olivia, a magazine editor travels to her childhood home in Maine -- and into a labyrinth of deception and fear. . .

A Face From The Past...

Olivia Sedgwick never really knew her wealthy father, and she can’t imagine why he bequeathed his summer cottage to her. It’s a cozy little place, but Blueberry, Maine, holds only bittersweet memories for Olivia -- heartrending memories of Zach, her long-lost first love, and the child she gave up for adoption. But what begins as a brief trip north to inspect her new property becomes a journey of revelation when she runs into Zach himself -- and their beautiful daughter.

And A Threat To Her Future...

Zach is stunned that Olivia has returned to the small town where they fell in love. But what’s more shocking is the realization that her father lied to them both, driving them apart all those years ago. Rebuilding their relationship offers a temptation that neither of them can resist. But someone is determined to break apart their small family once more, and will stop at nothing to do it...

Thirteen years ago in Blueberry, Maine Olivia Sedgwick gave birth to a stillborn child. She never saw her offspring and was so distraught she never learned the sex of her baby. She left Maine vowing to never return as even the father of her child Zach Archer was not there for her. However Olivia is haunted by dreams of a boy and a girl, whom she assumes is a subconscious memory of her lost baby.---------------- When her father dies, his will contains a stipulation if she and her mother are to inherit anything. Olivia must live in his summer cottage in Blueberry for one month and everyday during her stay she must buy one item each at two local stores everyday. She wants to say no, but she knows her mom needs the money so she agrees to the terms set forth by the dad she never met and quits her job at Glitz Magazine.------------- In Blueberry, accidents begin to happen as if someone wants Olivia to leave town. More haunting is seeing Zach with his daughter Kayla, whose age would be the same as the child they lost. Olivia soon realizes that her father lied about his granddaughter as her baby is now a young teen raised by Zach. As they try to clear up misunderstandings fostered by Olivia¿s late dad, someone wants Olivia and seemingly all the teen-age beauty contestants dead.-------------- This is a fascinating complex romantic mystery with a touch of the paranormal. Olivia is a terrific protagonist who finds herself stunned to learn her daughter lives and that she still loves Zach. He feels the same way, but has problems trusting his beloved though he realizes her father manipulated everyone. Though the beauty pageant killer subplot seems over the edge (Miss Congeniality aside) the sequel to Watching Amanda (Olivia¿s half-sister) is a wonderful second chance at love thriller.-------------- Harriet Klausner
