Rewrite of Don’t Tell:
Desperate times require desperate actions.
Mary Grace Winters was the wife of an abusive cop. She knew the only way to escape his reign of terror and save herself and her child was to stage their own deaths. With new identities and a new town, she left their former lives drowning in the bottom of a lake. Now, many years have passed, 9 to be exact, and her life as Caroline Stewart has become more real than the nightmare of her escaped marriage. She has a burgeoning love relationship with emotionally wounded Max Hunter, and she’s built a life with her son, one that feels safe. But that safety is a lie. Everything she has built, her life, even the lives of those she loves is threatened when her husband picks up on her trail. He’s dangerous and he’s getting closer.
