Samantha Taylor has lost all those dearest to her…her parents, her brother, and now the grandfather who raised her. When his will is read and some of his secrets come to light, Sam finds herself back in Misty Lake, Minnesota, a place that holds countless happy memories but, as she quickly discovers, just as many questions.
Jake McCabe, Misty Lake’s sheriff, is as curious as anyone about the town’s newest resident but it isn’t until Sam becomes the victim of a particularly cruel vandal that he meets her and gets a look at the house that has everyone in town talking.
As Jake races to keep Sam safe from the escalating attacks, he also works to break down the wall she has built around herself and to convince her that a life without love isn’t a life at all.
About Margaret Standafer (Twin Cities, Minnesota Author)
Margaret Standafer is the author of four clean, romantic suspense novels in the Misty Lake Series.
Margaret was born, raised, and still resides in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota. After years spent in perpetual motion juggling a family and a career and loving every minute of it, she found herself with time on her hands after her youngest left for college. Finally heeding her husband’s subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) hints, she grabbed the laptop and started putting some of the stories that had been alive and well—but relegated to a small spot in the recesses of her mind—down on paper. The outcome of that endeavor was her first published novel, Misty Lake.
With the support of her amazing and understanding husband as well as her amazing and somewhat understanding kids, and in spite of the lack of support from her ever-demanding Golden Retriever, Margaret has completed three more books in the series, The Inn at Misty Lake, Misty Lake in Focus, and Anchored in Misty Lake. She is currently hard at work on the next installment of the series, Sunset over Misty Lake.
It is Margaret's sincere hope that you enjoy her writing.
