Available in: Paperback (reprint)
It seemed like the perfect way to recover from the recent attack on Scott Hampton’s blues club—and her own broken heart. But hosting a Thanksgiving feast for all of her friends at her ancestral home in Zinnia, Mississippi, turns out to be more than Sarah Booth bargained for when, late one night, the doorbell rings and she finds a newborn girl bundled up on her front porch…and a pool of blood slowly seeps out from the basket. Before she can respond, an engine guns and a dark vehicle takes off.
After the police and a doctor ensure that the baby is otherwise safe and healthy, Sarah Booth calls Tinkie Richmond, her partner at the Delaney Detective Agency. They know they need to do everything they can to find the baby’s mother…even if they are starting to fall in love with the baby themselves. But as they track the mother down, Sarah Booth soon begins to suspect the woman might have been in danger; in fact, she might have been running for her life. And following in the woman’s footsteps, Sarah Booth might find her own life on the line next…
