Psychotherapist Kate Huntington is rocked to the core when one of her clients commits suicide. The client’s family blames Kate and they’re threatening to sue for malpractice. She can’t fault them since she blames herself. How could she have missed the signs?

Searching for answers for herself and the grieving parents, Kate discovers some details that don’t quite fit. Is it possible the client didn’t take her own life? Questioning her professional judgement, and at times her own sanity, Kate feels compelled to investigate. What she finds stirs up her old ambivalence about the Catholic Church. Is her client’s death somehow related to her childhood parish?

When she senses that someone is following her, she wonders if she is truly losing it. Or is she getting dangerously close to someone’s secrets?

About the author

In her youth, Kassandra Lamb had to decide between her two greatest passions, writing and psychology. Being partial to food, heat and electricity, she opted to study psychology. Now that she's retired from her career as a psychotherapist, she can focus on creating an alternate universe in which her protagonist, Kate Huntington, is always the kind, generous and insightful person that Kassandra wishes she was herself.

 She has recently launched a new series, the Marcia Banks and Buddy cozy mysteries, in which Marcia (pronounced Mar-see-a, not Marsha) trains service dogs for combat veterans and solves mysteries in her spare time, with the assistance of her black Lab sidekick, Buddy.

 

When Kassandra's not at her computer, transported in mind and spirit into the world of her characters, she physically lives in Florida, with her husband and her dog.

 

Kassandra was born in Baltimore and lived in Maryland for the first 50 years of her life. Like Kate Huntington, she was a specialist in trauma recovery for two decades. She also taught psychology at Towson University.

Sweet, adorable Lacy has stolen Marcia Banks’s heart, but money is tight. Like it or not, the service dog trainer needs to complete the human phase of training and deliver the dog to her new owner in order to get paid. But the former Army nurse client turns out to be a challenging trainee. On top of her existing neuroses–which go beyond the psychological damage from a sexual assault during her second tour in Afghanistan–the veteran is now being stalked.

When Marcia receives a bizarre warning to stay away from her client and Lacy is also caught in the stalker’s malicious orbit, Sheriff Will Haines steps in to investigate. Marcia finds this both endearing and annoying, especially when he expects her to stay on the sidelines. The training fee would make her solvent again, but how can she put her dogs at risk?

Maybe Marcia should be more worried about herself, since the stalker has decided to pay her off in a very different way.
