When Hailey does something, she does it properly. So when she picks the wrong man to have an affair with, he's really wrong. Organized crime wrong. Now she, her mom, and her baby are adjusting to life in the small town of Trouble Bay, Wisconsin, where the streets are quiet in winter and loud with tourists in the summer.

Wes suspects his new neighbor isn't telling the truth about where she came from. He’s getting his own life together, and he’s not about to intrude on hers. But she’s impossible to avoid and more impossible to ignore. He knows she has secrets, and he wonders how dangerous they may be…
This is a new life for both Hailey and Wes. Anything can happen – for the good or the bad.

A dog in need of saving…

His handsome face, blue eyes, and strong physique can fool anyone into believing he's a good man.

But one person wasn't satisfied with the shockingly high death toll at the DownEast Mall. And as the survivors slowly heal, find shelter, and rebuild, they will discover that another conspirator is lying in wait--and this time, there might be nowhere safe to hide.
