CAPE REFUGE. Wade and Thelma Owens run a halfway house on the small island of Cape Refuge that caters to wayward souls just out of prison. So when Wade and Thelma turn up brutally murdered, the town goes into shock, concerned that one of the Hanover House residents is a murderer who could strike again. Shattered by her parents' deaths, Morgan Cleary struggles to keep Hanover House running while her husband, Jonathan, has been arrested for the murder. As the killer runs free, a lethal race against time ensues, with far more than the halfway house at stake. The second novel is entitles SOUTHERN STORM. Cade hit the accelerator—just as he saw the pedestrian step into the road. No one knows who the victim was, where he came from, or why he staggered out in front of Chief Cade's car. Guilt overwhelms him that he killed the mysterious stranger, until Cade learns that the man had been shot at close-range before he was struck. Finding the shooter becomes Cade's top priority. But when Cade vanishes off of the island of Cape Refuge, rumors spread like wildfire that Cade was involved with the dead man's wife and that the death was not accidental. Blair Owens knows Cade wouldn't have done the things they're saying, and he wouldn't have left without saying goodbye.
