About the author:
Grace R. Greene writes women's fiction with strong heroines always at its heart, and with romance and suspense threaded throughout. Vivid settings and quirky secondary characters round out the stories and there's a happily-ever-after-ending-most of the time.
Grace is also an artist and photographer who loves houses and landscapes that ooze character. Eclectic is probably a good word to describe her. When she's writing, all of these interests, past and present, show up on the page. But some things don't change. In high school Grace wrote a story for the school publication and was told you weren't allowed to kill the narrator. She has never accepted that, and in fact, still has trouble following THE RULES.
Rules or not, she's been honored with a number of writing awards over the past year as a finalist in The Golden Pen, Linda Howard's Award of Excellence, Fool For Love, and other contests.
A Virginia native, Grace lives in central Virginia with her husband of many years who also happens to be her biggest fan and supporter.
Beth Kincaid left her hot temper and unhappy childhood behind and created a life in the city free from untidy emotionalism, but even a tidy life has danger, especially when it falls apart.
In the midst of her personal disasters, Beth is called back to her hometown of Preston, a small town in southwestern Virginia, to settle her guardian's estate. There, she runs smack into the mess she'd left behind a decade earlier: her alcoholic father, the long-ago sweetheart, Michael, and the poor opinion of almost everyone in town. As she sorts through her guardian's possessions, Beth discovers that the woman who saved her and raised her had secrets, and the truths revealed begin to chip away at her self-imposed control.
Michael is warmly attentive and Stephen, her ex-fiancé, follows her to Preston to win her back, but it is the man she doesn't know who could forever end Beth's chance to build a better, truer life.
