Ellen Jones, first introduced in the Baxter series, enjoys a leisurely lunch at a Seaport restaurant where she overhears a private conversation at the table next to her&mdash;and disturbing accusations involving the husband of a woman she has recently befriended. When Ellen goes to the husband&rsquo;s employer and cannot get answers, she digs through old newspaper articles and stumbles onto information too frightening to keep to herself. Will Ellen become enmeshed in speculation and gossip&mdash;or will she take the lead and become a catalyst for truth and healing?<br><br><b>Dangerous Secrets? </b> <br><br>Ellen Jones is enjoying a leisurely lunch at Gordy&rsquo;s Crab Shack when she overhears a private conversation at the next table&mdash;and disturbing accusations about the husband of a woman she&rsquo;s befriended. <br><br>Reluctant to go to her friend with hearsay, yet compelled to search for answers, Ellen stumbles onto information that gives her cold chills&mdash;facts too frightening to keep to herself. <br><br><i>Is a child in jeopardy? </i>That&rsquo;s the question that drives Ellen to delve deeper into a stranger&rsquo;s past. How can she turn a blind eye when she has information that might prevent a heartbreaking tragedy? <br><br>Join Ellen Jones, the former newspaper editor from Kathy Herman&rsquo;s acclaimed Baxter Series, for a new series of thrills and intrigue&mdash;and lessons about life and faith. <br><br><b>Story Behind the Book</b><br><br>&#8220;My novels don&rsquo;t come to me ahead of time; eachbook flows off the tips of my fingers as I sit down and begin to &lsquo;feel&rsquo; the issues deep inside myself. For me, the most intriguing aspect of my writing style is that I don&rsquo;t plan and outline the stories. I turn my fingers loose and get inside the characters and instinctively know where I need to go. After all the suspense is said and done, my hope is that each story will give us pause. That in the deepest part of our souls, we&rsquo;ll embrace the depth of what it means to be believers and then be moved to share its powerful simplicity with those who struggle without hope. I want to take my readers inside my characters&rsquo; hearts and minds so they will &lsquo;experience&rsquo; just how destructive gossip really is and see that it never accomplishes anything God-honoring, whether or not it&rsquo;s true.&#8221;
