Overview

WILL SHE FIND THE ANSWER
Teenager Lia Porter shouldn't have been anywhere near the railroad bridge that night. Sneaking home after a party in the fields outside Pike, Wisconsin, she glimpsed a woman in a leather jacket, running in terror. Lia puts the incident from her mind-until a body is found
near the same spot fifteen years later, wearing the same jacket. The police rule it a suicide. Lia knows different. The woman she saw was trying to save her own life, not end it. But whatever she was fleeing from found her first ...
BEFORE THE KILLER
The stranger who arrives at Lia's store shares her suspicions. Hollywood stunt driver Kaden Vaughn has come home to Wisconsin to learn the truth about what happened to his brother's fiancée years ago. The leather jacket, the timing-he believes the dead woman is
Vanna, and that Lia may be the only person who can help. Together they retrace Vanna's steps, but the more they dig, the darker the secrets become.
FINDS HER?
The killer is still out there, stalking the streets of Pike again, willing to do whatever is necessary to keep the truth locked in mystery. One by one, all those who know something about that night must be silenced, until there is no one left to tell ...

For the tense fourth Pike, Wisconsin romantic suspense novel (after Unstable), Ivy spins a fast-paced tale of a small Wisconsin town with dark secrets and the unlikely couple determined to learn the truth. As a teenager on the way to a party, Lia Porter witnessed a strange, distressed woman running through town in the dead of night. Fifteen years later, the skeleton of Vanna Zimmerman is found under an abandoned bridge, and Lia, now a savvy investor running her family’s grocery store, puts the pieces together that she may have been the last person to see Vanna before she died. She’s flabbergasted—and even more so when movie star Kaden Vaughn, whose late brother was engaged to Vanna, arrives in town, intent on solving the mystery. Passion arises when the pair team up to chase answers, even as a killer returns and the body count grows. Ivy gives the mystery some exciting twists as Lia and Kaden learn to their peril that appearances can be deceiving. This smart, sexy thriller is sure to pique series fans. Agent: Evan Marshall, Evan Marshall Agency. (Mar.)
