Overview

SHE HAD EVERYTHING A WOMAN COULD WANT ....

Newly married to a man of wealth and reputation who's willing to be stepfather to her daughter Abigail, Sara Bonniface would seem to have all she's ever wanted for Abby: a beautiful home, a man to be there for her, and the assurance of a top education for the bright if headstrong child. But twelve-year-old Abby has other ideas, embarking on a crusade to learn more about her birth father. Relentless and computer-savvy, Abby manages to track down and then drag Ben McElwyn, ex-cop and now a P.I., back into Sara's life.

It's the last thing that Sara needs. She's already under assault from a series of mystifying events that have her dreading the possibility that she's suffering from schizophrenia, the affliction that destroyed her own mother.

It's the last thing that Ben needs. He's a lone wolf and determined to stay that way. Him, the father of a twelve-year-old daughter? He refuses to believe it.

It's the last thing that Rodger Bonniface, Abby's stepfather, needs. Headmaster of a prestigious prep school in Massachusetts, Rodger's reputation is pristine. Rich, confident, and cooly charming, Rodger has surprised everyone by marrying a woman with neither his background nor his sophistication. Still, Sara has great beauty, so they understand. And before her marriage she was a respectable widow, a sympathetic figure—everyone, including Rodger, believes.

Until twelve-year-old Abby lobs that hand grenade into the elegant quarters of the house called TIDEWATER.

Editorial Reviews

NYT Bestselling Author - Teresa Medeiros
"This book has it all! It satisfied me on many levels. It has a touching romantic reunion, gut-twisting suspense, and wrenching emotional impact. Ms. Stockenberg excels at novels that explore the mother/daughter relationship, and this one is no exception. If you like suspense, romance, and family relationships, all wrapped up in a credible story, Tidewater should make you very happy."
NYT Bestselling Author - Shirley Jump
"A fast-paced story that puts the major characters in the middle of some very tough decisions. This is a great book, with wonderful characters and a stirring story."
Romantic Times
"A spellbinding thriller that is both intense and riveting."
The Romance Reader - Romance Reader
"A compulsively readable suspense story."

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

    Stop giving us the entire back story and just write a review already!

    For God's sake, why do some people feel the need to summarize the entire book instead of simply telling us what they did or did not like about the storyline? It is absolutely frustrating. I feel like i've already read this book after reading some of these "reviews". I don't even really want to read it now. You're not writing the synopsis for the back of the cover, people. How about we just REVIEW the books we read from now on and leave the storytelling to the authors? Ya know, just a thought.

    Great read

    Lots of tension between characters in this suspenseful read. I love this author, she never disappoints. To the people who posted a one star review because they object to spoilers: it's a fair point, but why take it out on the author?

    highly recommended

    I have enjoyed all of Antoinette Stockenberg's books so far. Her plots are believable with interesting characters. this particular story was suspenseful even though you sort of know who the bad guy is early on, you aren't sure and there are enough twists to keep you interested. She doesn't use excessive bad language in her writing, which for me is good. I know the real world is gritty and sometimes vulgar, but during my free time to read and relax I would prefer not to be exposed to that. Endings are fairly predictable, but again I prefer the comfort of a good ending.

    Excellent review to Harriet

    I thought the review was compelling enough to read and I have to say that the few negative reviews regarding the reviewer were uncalled for, she did not give up the story! It is sad for you, you all really missed a great suspenseful well written mystery,I could not put the book down, I pity narrowminded people.

    To harriet

    Really enjoyable...kept moving.

    This was my first book by this author. I really enjoyed it; it wasn't an incredible thriller, but it was sweet, and easy reading, and a pleasant way to spend my time. The pages kept turning, and I really enjoyed the good guys.

    Another great Stockenberg read!

    This is another great read from Anoinette Stockenberg. I have read a few different of her novels and this is mu current favorite...but I don't plan on stopping here. Each chsracter is soo well crafted that you cannot help but care about every little twist and turn on the ride. Avoid spoilers in some of these reviews, thankfully Ii did because you NEED to experience this one fresh. Buy it now, trust me.
