She has the life most women dream of

Too bad for Audrey Colby it’s all a facade. Her seemingly devoted husband is really a monster. Their high-society “friends” protect his ugly secrets. The mansion they live in is just a gilded prison for her and her son, Sammy. Everything hinges on escape. One day, Audrey decides she and her son need to escape. She’s had enough. If only Nicholas Wakefield would stop interfering.

Former state prosecutor Nicholas has seen his share of violence perpetrated against women. He knows there are some injustices he can’t make right, like the unsolved rape and murder of his teenage sister. He failed her. But he won’t fail Audrey…

Dear Reader,

Audrey Colby is a woman who took a wrong turn early in her life.  Ignored that little voice of doubt that bid her to take a second look.  We’ve all done it.  It’s just that some bad decisions put us in worse places than others.

Like most of the choices we make, the picture isn’t black and white.  Audrey has a son whom she loves heart and soul.  And she’s determined to give him the life he deserves, a life free of the awful things he’s seen from his father.

I once heard someone living in a difficult situation asked why she stayed, why she didn’t leave.  Her answer?  “At least this devil I know.

That’s the tough part.  Prying ourselves out of the familiar, even when it’s bad, and flinging ourselves into the unknown.

I think of my own life as a tapestry, countless threads of good and bad woven together.  It would be impossible to pull one thread without changing the landscape of the entire thing, making it something other than what it is.  Maybe the challenge then is to find peace with the choices we’ve made, and go forward with experience as a beacon to light our path.

I love to hear from readers.  Please visit my website at www.inglathcooper.com.  Or write to me at P.O. Box 973, Rocky Mount, VA 24151.

All best,

Love isn’t part of the job…

A tough-as-nails cop, Chantel Harris faces whatever life throws at her, and then some.  As part of Santa Raquel’s High Risk team-created by the town’s women’s shelter, The Lemonade Stand-she goes undercover to expose one of the community’s elite as an abuser.

Looking the part is easy, but gaining acceptance into upper society circles s a different matter.  That’s where gorgeous and successful lawyer Colin Fairbanks comes in.  But Colin is so much more than Chantel could have dreamed.  Wanting him is dangerous.  Falling for him could ruin everything.

Dear Reader,

What can I tell you about Chantel Harris that will make you want to read this book?  Whatever it is, please imagine me saying it.  Chantel is the best friend…but has few friends.  Her closest friend, a female cop, was killed on duty.  Chantel was the first responder.

She never expects things for herself, she only asks how she can help others.  She’s the kind of friend we all want.

If you haven’t read previous Where Secrets Are Safe books, relax, you don’t need to.  You won’t feel left behind.  For those of you who have, you’ll have seen Chantel once before in book three, Husband by Choice, when she visited Santa Raquel to help her best friend’s widower after his second wife goes missing.

Now a member of the Santa Raquel High Risk Team, she goes undercover to ensure the safety of a boy and his mother and ends up finding something horrible going on in the society she infiltrates..  I didn’t know, when I started this book, what was going to happen.  I didn’t know until the end how it was going to end.  I didn’t even know if the bad guy was bad.  Chantel took care of it all.  She took care of me.  And she’ll take care of you too, if you give her a chance!
