Pregnant and alone, Susannah Hobson decides it's time to go home and mend fences with her stepmother, Violet. Unfortunately, the older woman dies in a car wreck just before Susannah's arrival. All that greets her is an empty house, a grieving dog and a surly neighbor, vet-turned-rancher Travis Dean. Discovering that Travis is a co-beneficiary in Violet's will is a shock, but worse, Susannah soon has reason to suspect that her stepmother's death was no accident. Emotionally charged and sensual, Cindy Gerard's THE BLUEWATER AFFAIR (4) provides another tantalizing piece of the intriguing Family Secrets puzzle.
