Elite Guardians bodyguard Haley Callaghan may be in South Carolina, but when a photo leads investigators in West Ireland to open a twenty-five-year-old cold case, her life is suddenly in danger. Haley knows how to take care of herself; after all, she’s made a career out of taking care of others. But after an uncomfortably close call, Detective Steven Rothwell takes it upon himself to stay with her—and the young client she has taken under her wing. A protector at heart, he’s not about to let Haley fight this battle alone.
In a sweeping plot that takes them into long-buried memories—and the depths of the heart—Haley and Steven will have to solve the mystery of Haley’s past while dodging bullets, bombs, and bad guys who just won’t quit.
What part of the country do you consider home?
The southeast. I’m from South Carolina.
Currently, how big (or small) is your household?
There’s my husband and me and our two teens. One just finished up her first year of college and the second one is almost a junior in high school.
What do you do when you’re not writing?
I love photography and, of course, reading. 🙂
Is there any habit or hobby you have that might surprise readers?
Is napping a hobby?? No, seriously, I enjoy BAKING, but LOATHE cooking. If that makes any sense.
You’ve just turned in your manuscript, and your editor won’t return it with revisions for at least a week or two. Where would you go for a vacation?
Either somewhere like the mountains where there’s a cabin that looks rustic on the outside, but is luxurious and pampering on the inside. OR…somewhere tropical where I can take early morning walks on the beach and work inside in the air conditioning when it gets too hot. 🙂 I always work on vacation.
What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
Chocolate. I’m a simple girl.
Are you a dog or a cat person? What does that tell us about you?
Dog. I have no idea what that says about me. LOL.
What was your favorite childhood book? What made it so beloved?
I didn’t have just one favorite. I loved anything that had suspense in it. Go figure. I’m sure that shocks you.
How many unfinished book ideas or manuscripts do you currently have?
I haven’t counted. LOL.
What’s your favorite movie? Favorite TV show?
Favorite movie: Cellular with Nicole Kidman.
Favorite TV show: Hm…that’s a tough one. Blue Bloods probably.
If you were casting yourself in a movie, which actor or actress would you pick? Why?
Oh boy. I would probably like for Odette Anable to play me. As long as it was a young me. Ha. And that’s the only thing allowed!
