i read this book as a teenager. it was a harlequin from the 90's. the book starts off in a prolouge. the heroine was a child and witnessed her parents murder. after that she became mute. she meets the hero at a party. the next thing i remember, she is staying with him for protection. he is a writer and she helps him by typing his manuscript. she was also a classical piano player. that is all i can remember. i know i am not giving you much to go on, but i have seen other vauge discriptions of books and this room finds them.

Here is the book description for River's End:

Olivia's parents were among Hollywood's golden couples--until the night a monster came and took her mother away forever. A monster with the face of her father. Sheltered from the truth, an older Olivia only dimly recalls her night of terror--but her recurring nightmares make her realize she must piece together the real story.

Assisted by Noah Brady, the son of the police detective who found her cowering in her closet so many years before, she may have her chance. Noah wants to reconstruct the night that has become an infamous part of Hollywood history. He also wants to help Olivia and heal the longing in her lonely heart. But once the door to her past is opened, there is no telling what is waiting on the other side. For somewhere, not too far away, the monster walks again...
