A society wedding interrupted by deadly violence sends the bride into hiding in this romantic thriller by two New York Times bestselling authors.

Rory Abernathy's wedding to Liam Bastian was supposed to be the event of the season. Instead, it was a bloodbath. Rory fled after stabbing a masked intruder, just before a gunman opened fire on the wedding party. Five years on, Rory still has no idea who was behind the attacks. Fearful she and her daughter remain targets, she's made a new life far from Liam and the wealthy, powerful Bastians.

But even in remote Point Roberts, Washington, Rory can't hide from the past. Liam tracks her down, stunned to learn they have a child. Did someone in Rory's family try to kill him for his portion of the Bastian estate? As they gradually overcome distrust in search of the truth, Rory knows one thing for certain: someone is watching her...

Time has passed, but the killer's need for vengeance hasn't. And as a nightmare stirs to life again, Rory will find that this time, there's nowhere left to run . . .

    March 26, 2018
    A wedding gone bloodily wrong kicks off this overstuffed romantic thriller from Jackson and Bush (Wicked Ways). Liam Bastian’s mother insists upon an elaborate public ceremony to consecrate Liam’s bond with Rory Abernathy, despite their legal marriage two months earlier. Rory’s background is very different from the Bastians’ wealth and privilege, and Liam’s mother disapproves of the match. En route to the altar, Rory is aggressively threatened and attacked, while a sniper wounds Liam and other wedding guests. Rory flees to a small town in Washington State, convinced she’s the cause of it all and desperate to protect a vital secret. Five years later, Liam is about to call off the search for her when his private investigator gets a lead on Rory’s location. Reunited against Rory’s will, Liam and Rory can at last reconnect, though their relationship takes a back seat to conflict and crime. Vandalism aimed at the Bastians’ business, simmering family quarrels, and additional murders thicken the byzantine brew, obscuring the true villain until the breathless finale. This novel is aimed much more at fans of puzzling thrillers; those who prefer a focus on romance will be disappointed. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House.

    A masked man forces his way into Rory Abernathy Bastian's hotel room and threatens her and her unborn baby right before she walks down the aisle to repeat her vows with her husband, Liam. Rory defends herself with a paring knife, panics, and flees--just as a sniper takes aim at the wedding crowd and everything erupts into bloody violence. Five years later, she has reinvented herself as Heather Johnson and carved out a life for herself and her daughter in remote Point Roberts, WA, still fearing she's the target of a killer. But Liam is on her trail, and just when they finally connect, the murders begin again. VERDICT Combining their considerable talents, sisters Jackson and Bush have penned a chilling thriller with enough false leads to keep readers enthralled to the finish. Jackson and Bush (Wicked Ways) write books independently, too. They live in Lake Oswego, OR.
