Edie Brand has come home to nurse some wounds: her modeling career may be over and a crazed stalker has been making life unbearable, but now he seems to have followed her to Oklahoma. And it seems that town bad boy Wade Armstrong has stepped up to be her guardian and is trying to convince her that the best way for him to protect her is to move in. Maggie Shayne gifts your holidays with BRAND-NEW HEARTACHE (4.5), a sheer delight of a read with a compelling cast of characters.
