Make sure this book doesn’t get left behind when you pack the tote bag for the beach! The husband and wife writing team that is known as Jan Coffey have outdone themselves this time. This book grabs you from the first page and holds on tight.


Kelly Stone is one of only four people who survived a mass suicide at a New Mexico cult twenty years ago. Luckily for Kelly she has been able to put the memories of her childhood and the culmination of the dreadful event behind her. She was adopted by a wonderful couple and now runs the inn that they purchased before they died. Her and her daughter Jade have even adjusted well to the death of Kelly’s husband. They have no idea the danger that will soon threaten them.


Ian Campbell lives with the memories of what happened at the mission campground every day of his life as his wife Ann was one of the victims or chosen ones led into the next world by Reverend Butler. Now twenty years later when the planets will once again align leading people to believe that it opens the entrance to heaven, Ian Campbell will be there to try to find answers to what really happened to his wife.


When Ian takes a room at Kelly’s Inn he has no idea who she is or how her and her charming daughter will change his life. It doesn’t take Ian long to realize that some strange things are going on at the Inn as well as at the campground across the lake and that Kelly’s life is in danger. Someone has already ended the lives of the other three victims that escaped that day and they are ready to make sure that Kelly is the fourth and final victim.


Longtime fans of Jan Coffey will once again be wrapped up in an intriguing storyline with a charming romance thrown in. They will also get a sneak peak at a few characters from other books by this duo as well. So grab that sunscreen and your beach towel and find yourself a good reading spot as you wile away a few hours with one of the hottest suspense books of the summer.
