A river overflows with secrets and ghosts of the past… Will it reveal what they seek?
The day the Pearse woman was pulled from the river, Deputy Tim Whitaker knew this was a make or break case. He worked his whole career cracking the hard ones. Why can’t he catch a break? He should have known it might get complicated with a much-loved local as the primary suspect and a second man that everyone has seen but no one knows. All he needs is one clue, one thing to bring her closure.
Captain Savanna McCormick needs closure - the kind she provides for other families thanks to her partner Max, her K9 cadaver dog. Too bad she can’t get her own. Her parents’ disappearance may no longer be a newsworthy item, but the still-open case is always on her mind, especially now she has custody of her younger brother. Chaperoning a field trip forces her to confront her worst fears; returning to Washington, NC where her parents were last seen.
A special assignment brings them together while the job keeps them apart. Will the Pamlico River prove to be their toughest adversary? Can they work together and solve the case before the Pamlico washes it all away and hides its secrets forever?
About the Author
Her favorite Romance book was To Love a Rogue by Valerie Sherwood. After reading it many times in High School, she headed to University of West Florida to study marine archaeology, final destination, Port Royal Jamaica. After she found out she wasn't that great a swimmer, she changed her major to Art History. And so, she started her career in retail management.
In 2014, Tammera was a Retail Store manager, and the writing bug bit. The characters started speaking to her and would not leave her alone until she started to put them on paper. The Water Street Chronicles were born. She has always loved historical romance and she assumed that was what she was writing. Each of the book titles come from code flowers of the Underground Railroad. During a brainstorming exercise with a Harlequin Editor at the Babes on the Beach writers retreat, the contemporary story came to life. She hasn't looked back.
Tammera made some changes in her career and personal life to put the words on paper. She now lives in Washington, NC. Writing is her second job. Keeping her readers happy is her main task. She enjoys the research required to write the stories that are woven with the small town's history.
She is a member of the Pamlico Writers Group, Women's Fiction Writers Association, and Romance Writer of America. The support and education provided by these groups have kept Tammera on the right track to publication.
