Vermont is the setting for one of Carla Negger's suspense filled romances. J.B. McGrath turns his forced vacation into work when he is drawn into investigating the murder of a local Goose Harbor resident and the burglaries that have struck his youngest daughter's cafe. He finds himself with an unwanted assistant, former detective Zoe West, who has come home to face the ghosts she left behind her. Those same ghosts are a part of the current investigation, as it is her father's murder and her sister's cafe that have caught J.D.'s attention.
Small towns are filled with secrets and rivalry, Goose Harbor no less than any other. Digging for the truth will expose many of these, and force Zoe to face the destiny that she fled. Despite her and J.D's best intentions, they can not fight the heated attraction between them for very long, thus making their risks seem greater and more personal.

Carla Neggers delivers her classic story, making good use of the world she is most familiar with, small town Vermont.

Review from "Publisher's Weekly" 11/25/2002
Small New England towns full of romance and intrigue are Neggers's specialty, and here she revisits characters first introduced in her previous book, Stonebrook Cottage. Patrick West, chief of police in Goose Harbor, Maine, is murdered following a visit to his 101-year-old aunt, Olivia. Olivia passes away after hearing of her nephew's death but not before trying to say she knows who murdered him. The murder remains unsolved, and in the year following Patrick's death, his daughter Zoe virtually self-destructs, abandoning her police career and secluding herself in Connecticut. Zoe returns to Goose Harbor after her sister Chistina calls to say that someone has broken into Olivia's house. Around the same time, burnt-out FBI agent J.B. McGrath rolls into town claiming to be on vacation. Inevitably, Zoe and J.B. team up to solve a string of inexplicable crimes that are somehow related to her father's murder. The relationship between Zoe and J.B. is well paced and believable, and a secondary thread concerning J.B.'s connection to Olivia is a nice twist. However, Neggers's supporting characters are less convincing, and her "bad guys" are little more than cardboard cutouts. Still, readers looking for a light escape will find this mildly diverting.

In a small coastal town, a killer strikes then disappears without a trace.

Shattered by her father's murder, Zoe West abandoned her plans to become an FBI agent and left her hometown of Goose Harbor, Maine. But a new home and job did nothing to get her life back on track, and now Zoe knows only one thing will--returning to Goose Harbor and confronting the past.

Fbi Special Agent J.B. McGrath is "on vacation"--the Bureau's version of "Get your act together, or else..." Burned-out after working undercover for a year, J.B. agrees he needs a break, and chooses Goose Harbor as a retreat. But he isn't lying low. He believes a killer is still loose in the town--a killer who isn't happy to see Zoe West return.

Zoe isn't sure she can trust the unpredictable FBI agent--or their growing attraction to each other. But as the danger mounts, one wrong move could destroy everything she and J.B. care about. Because someone got away with murder and is determined to keep it that way.
