~To Take Control of Her Life She'll Sacrifice it All and Shatter Expectations~

Everyone is shocked when Clare Ulster leaves her rich and handsome fiancé, chucks her well-to-do Milwaukee city life, and moves into her grandparents' old homestead in the remote Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The quiet small town of Iron City is just what she needs to get her life in order and learn to stand on her own. No men needed!

~Her Ex-Fiancé Is Out to Make Her Life a Living Hell~

Unfortunately, disaster follows her. Unable to let her go, her abusive, cheating ex- fiancé finds his way to the U.P. and sets out to make Clare's life more of a living hell then he'd done in the past. Additionally, Clare's alleged involvement with the Fire Chief, aka, town player, lands her in a world of trouble with his ring of female admirers, sending her on a dangerously chaotic adventure including murder and kidnapping. With Clare's life in danger, irresistible Police Chief Jack Ricco will do whatever it takes to keep their newest resident safe.

Will Clare and Jack be able to survive the deceptively peaceful Iron City?

It took Clare three years to realize that the man she was engaged to was no darn good. Not only had she caught him with two other women--but he was becoming somewhat violent. She takes off to Iron City to her grandparent's old house. She is meaning to start her own practice and work as a parole officer part time if she can get a job. She begins to meet people she knew from way back then. Of course none of them look the the same! Someone is trying to kill off people she knows. Her Ex shows up in town and is harassing her. Will the murderer ever get caught? There are 4 women who sign up for therapy sessions---but their stories are almost similar--what in the world is their story!! This was a very fast read for me and think it will be for you as well. Twists and turns will keep you guessing--then guessing again!
