ABOUT BOOK: Pregnant and widowed hadn't been part of her “happily ever after” dream. And now, someone was trying to kill her . . .
Erin Macintyre never expected to be a widow and a new mother in the same year, anymore than she expected mysterious notes, threatening phone calls, and a strange homeless man who seems to know all about her. The thought of raising a child without a father is daunting enough—worse when you have no idea who might want to harm you. Put an old flame into the mix, and her life begins a tailspin into a world she never knew existed.
When P.I. Clay Buchanan, stumbles upon Erin at her husband's gravesite, he’s totally unprepared for her advanced pregnancy. Her venomous reaction at seeing him, however, was predictable. But Clay can’t let her distrust, or his guilt, get in the way—not when he has evidence that proves Erin’s life is in danger.
With few options left, Erin begrudgingly accepts Clay’s help . . . and it just might be her undoing.

MANDATORY PLEASE ANSWER ONE OF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS TO BE ENTERED INTO THE DRAWING!
1.Erin and Clay live in Las Vegas. To most of the world, my adopted home town is thought of as "Sin City." Yet people like Erin and Clay live and work here, raise their families, go to church and school, just like folks in any other city. I wanted to show that. Pre-conceived ideas. Ever had any? Things you "assumed" were so but found out they weren't? Share some that really surprised you. The times when "things aren't as they seem" happened.
2. If you've never been here, what comes into your mind when you hear "Las Vegas?" If you havebeen here, what pre-conceived images were blown away when you arrived? If any. Where did you go? What sights did you see? Were you pleased, or disappointed? Don't worry, I won't hold it against you

Yay! So glad you had a chance to see the "real" Las Vegas.
Thanks for stopping in. Many blessings.
I'm totally intrigued by the idea of seeing Vegas more than just the image you get in the movies. I've always seen it as 'sin city' and now, I'm curious!
Good for curiosity! LOL
Thanks for the comment.
I have never been to Las Vegas but gambling and "fake" marriages come to mind. If someone is in love,why does the marriage need to be so quick and seem so shady?
The "quickie" marriage is a myth. The marriages are not 'shady' nor "fake" - you still have to have a marriage license. And the county court house keeps regular hours. What the married couple do after their vows has nothing to do with Vegas, or the Wedding Chapels. There's nothing illegal about these marriages.
Thanks for stopping in. :)
My goodness, Cindy. Where were you camping? It sounds like the RV parking "camping" area behind the Circus Circus. And,yeah, it would be all paved.
Real estate is at a premium, here, so every inch is coveted. :)
Thanks for stopping by.
Everyone had told me how aloof and unfriendly a neighbor woman was, and I had never met nor talked to her. Then one night out of the blue she called me to ask something after she heard my husband had lyme disease, and we talked for two hours! What a very nice, friendly woman; it was like I had known her forever. Maybe not exactly pre-conceived but all I could think of and kind of the same idea. :)
Yes, Sherri, very much the same idea. We are strongly influenced by what others tell us about a thing, place, or person before we've had a chance to discover the truth for ourselves.
Thanks for sharing!
We had some really preconcieved thoughts on how things were in TN when we moved there in 2008, being arround plain groups we thought it would be peaceful and it was anything but peaceful. LIfe there was so unreal it wasn't funny. Things happened all the time and the plain folks were the gossip chain there and it was not good for us heart wise.
Oh, Linda, that's unfortunate. Culture shock, for sure. Are you still in TN or have you moved away?
Thanks for dropping in.
