No cold case is more important than the one that destroyed her own family
Every small town has one unsolved case that haunts its memory, festering for generations below the surface with the truth of humanity’s darkness. Star Cavanaugh is obsessed with the one that tore her family apart.
Over sixty years ago, Daisy Doe was murdered and discarded outside Pineville, Alabama, buried without a name or anyone to mourn her loss. When Star’s father tried to solve the case, he was also killed. Now a cold-case detective with resources of her own, Star is determined to get to the bottom of both crimes. But she’ll have to face an entire town locked in corruption, silence, and fear--and the same danger that took two other lives. The only people in town she can trust are her grandmother and the charming Mike Luinetti, and both of them trust a God Star isn’t sure she believes in. Can Christians so focused on the good really help her track down this evil?
I love stories and books and readers and listeners, and I'm blessed to have been able to spend my life around them. These days, I'm a speaker, writer, and editor, and my latest book is My Mother’s Quilts (Worthy Publishing), which is a devotional written about and around the quilts I inherited from my mother. My latest is a small-town crime novel, Murder in the Family. I've written six novels for Love Inspired Suspense, and have devotionals available from Abingdon and Barbour Books.
I'm the associate publisher for Iron Stream Media, although I've been an editor for Abingdon Press, Thomas Nelson, Rutledge Hill Press, and Ideals magazine. I've freelanced for more than a dozen other publishers and have edited more than 500 publications, including fiction, trade nonfiction, magazines, scripts, poetry, Bibles and biblical reference works, study guides, curriculum, and how-to manuals.
Essentially, I'll write or edit just about anything. I'm also a speaker for writer's conferences and women's groups.
I can be found online at Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, and my blog is at https://thefridgefront.blogspot.com/
