Overview

Lake Superior's Big Bay Point lighthouse has illuminated rocky shoals for more than a hundred years, but these days the stout old tower shelters women and children from emotional turbulence. Celeste Brookstone is the new owner and director of the safehouse, having found a satisfying life-mission following the murder of her daughter, Pilar. That the shelter is so close to Hawk Haven Prison, where Pilar’s murderer is serving a life sentence, seems immaterial to Celeste—after all, she played a part in seeing Chad Wilbanks locked away in maximum security isolation. When Chad escapes, however, he too is on a mission: settling the score with Celeste. The worst November storm on record creates the perfect cover for Chad’s approach, but Celeste is better prepared than he expects. What Celeste is not prepared for is a shocking truth in the form of a ghost from her past.

Ms. Miller's extensive explanation of the prison system brought this story to life and I thank her for writing such a touching story on so many levels.

An interesting cat and mouse drama.
Midwest Book Review
From the Publisher

"Tekla's intimate knowledge of the prison system and those who inhabit it grabs and moves you quickly into a story that isn't easily put down. Her attention to the details of her character's behaviors, make the story not only believable, but intensely human. A great read about a phenomenon which is as fascinating as it is incredible!" —S. Koonce, PhD

    an interesting cat and mouse drama

    Near Marquette, Michigan, Celeste Brookstone converted the Big Bay Point Lighthouse overlooking Lake Superior into a safe house for abused women and children. She did so to honor her murdered adult daughter Pilar, the ninth victim of serial killer Chad Wilbanks, who is incarcerated at the maximum security Hawk Haven Prison with a life sentence. Celeste deals with her guilt because Pilar turned to charismatic Chad for comfort rather than her mom or her dad, Celeste¿s abusive ex husband.<BR/><BR/>Chad plans his tenth homicide while charming kitchen worker Lizzie Chatfield who enlists the aid of psychologist Pricilla Madden in enabling the convicted killer to escape. Celeste believes he is coming for her as she is the reason he is behind bars; however, she will not be a victim by anymore or allow her wards to be either so she is prepared for him or for that matter the abusive spouses to bring it on. However, she is unprepared for a traitor within her safe house as the lethal snake charms another woman like he did Pilar. <BR/><BR/>This exciting direct sequel to LIFE SENTENCE continues the confrontation between Celeste and Chad as each reach out to abused women with different motives and ends in mind. The story line focuses more on the Lighthouse activity than on Chad working on the psyche of a prison employee eerily similar to what he did with Pilar; thus this is less of a psychological character study than the first tale. The suspense comes in the second half when the two female prison employees abet his escape and a third woman inside Big Bay Point enables him to go after number ten. Insightful into the fears and needs of abuse victims, INEVITABLE SENTENCES is an interesting cat and mouse drama. <BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    AWESOME!!!! I will probably read again and I hope the author continues writing just like this!

    AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The first book was so good, that I could not wait to buy book 2. The mystery is intense throughout and even when you think you have things figured out...you really are not sure. The author NEVER lets you fade off or lose interest. You will not want to put the book/Nook down until you are done.
