An extremely well-plotted tale, CAUSE FOR ALARM delivers excitement that will draw readers in from the very first page.

Kate and Richard Ryan are happily married. The only thing they're lacking is a child. Julianna Starr is young, single and pregnant. An illicit affair with a man she now knows is crazy has left her on the run. From her first sight of Kate and Richard, she knows that her baby belongs in Kate's arms and that Richard belongs with her.

When Kate and Richard receive the baby their time of joy quickly becomes a nightmare marked by lies, pain and, eventually, murder. Kate finds help in a man from her past, but could it be too late to find happiness?
