When Brad Foreman’s widow demands to know why Charlie never answered his email, Charlie is confused. She never received his message. What did Brad, an accountant at a pharmaceutical company, want to tell her? As she searches through her computer, she finds an innocent-looking email in her junk mail folder that may turn out to be the biggest story of her career.
Is the encoded email--and the ones that follow--linked to Brad’s “accidental” death? Charlie’s investigation leads her to Brad’s friend, professor Josh Gelston, who is charming and exceedingly helpful--perhaps suspiciously so.
Charlie must decide if she can trust Josh...before a multimillion-dollar fraud ring with murder in its arsenal makes her the next lead story.

Zane Bigelow grew up in a beautiful, perfectly kept house in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Strangers and even Zane’s own aunt across the lake see his parents as a successful surgeon and his stylish wife, making appearances at their children’s ballet recitals and baseball games. Only Zane and his sister know the truth, until one brutal night finally reveals cracks in the facade, and Zane escapes for college without a thought of looking back...
Years later, Zane returns to his hometown determined to reconnect with the place and people that mean so much to him, despite the painful memories. As he resumes life in the colorful town, he meets a gifted landscape artist named Darby, who is on the run from ghosts of her own.
Together they will have to teach each other what it means to face the past, and stand up for the ones they love.
When Belinda Hennessey moves to Atlanta after a humiliating personal setback, she’s eager to start over: new surroundings, new job, new friends. To help adjust to the big city traffic, she joins a carpool with three other women in her office, who give her a crash course on maneuvering the maze of roads named “Peachtree” and tips on navigating office politics, which includes tiptoeing around their tyrannical boss.
Belinda tries desperately to fit in, and even manages to meet a couple of eligible men. Yet fate keeps conspiring against her. Her relationships become more problematic, and when bizarre accidents begin to occur, she starts to think she might be cursed. But when Belinda learns the woman she replaced in the carpool died under mysterious circumstances, she begins to think she’s being targeted—and not for Employee of the Year.
