Then Home I’ll Be

 

When wealthy Moriah Wyndham discovers she’s dying, she hires Private Investigator Grant Sanderson to find the son she gave up for adoption twenty-eight years before. She had handpicked an older couple to raise her child, believing he would have the perfect life. Grant soon finds that Moriah’s dreams have gone terribly wrong and her adorable infant grew up to be a killer.

 

Meanwhile, RT Williams is living in a boarding house, working in a hardware store, raising a little girl who isn’t his, and trying to forget his troubled youth. When Grant shows up revealing that RT’s biological mother would like to meet him, and is willing to pay for his time, RT reluctantly agrees. He can use the cash. RT didn’t anticipate that he’d actually like his mother, or that he’d begin to have strong feelings for Darcy, his mother’s personal assistant.

 

Just when RT is trying to figure out how he’s going to juggle his complicated real life with Moriah’s opulent world, his stormy past catches up with him, ending in tragedy.

 

 

Juneberry and the Tall Dark Stranger

 

Ira Dylan was born with two strikes against him. He was deaf and an orphan. By the time he was five years old, he had an adoring adopted father who found a new surgical procedure which made it possible for young Ira to hear.

 

More than anything, Ira wanted to be a writer like his father, famed novelist, TD Sloane. He pursued a career in journalism, instead of fiction, and discovered he had the knack for writing human interest stories. His column Have you heard about . . .? was going into national syndication when he learned about June McIver, a possible subject for a story.  He is fascinated by the middle aged neo-natal nurse, who was born deaf and soon discovers that June was the first person to undergo the then experimental procedure that granted both of them the power to hear. That wasn’t the only thing Ira and June shared in common.

 

Before long, June reveals her story of the Tall Dark Stranger. Ira sets out to do a routine interview and ends up with a tale that changes his life forever.

When he loses the position he hoped for, he discovers something even better ... acceptance from the family of his biological father.

But Eli soon learns that past mistakes and family secrets can be more dangerous than office politics. They can be deadly.
