After winning a lottery, Wendy and Jim Hodene feel they can secure their son's college education and renovate a cozy, antique New England home that has been in the family for generations. As soon as Wendy becomes certain life can't get any better, a surprise changes her world forever. (May)
Winning the lottery is just about everyone's fantasy, and when Wendy Hodene's husband, Jim, wins more than $10 million in a Powerball jackpot, life seems just about perfect. But then the past unexpectedly catches up with Jim, and Wendy suddenly realizes that her safe, secure life has been built on nothing more solid than sand. Well-drawn, sympathetic characters, exceptional writing, and an intriguing premise that puts a new spin on a classic plot combine to produce a riveting story of selfishness, betrayal, and love that readers will find hard to put down. Stockenberg (Tidewater) is a RITA Award-winning author and is noted for her compelling, emotionally involving stories, sometimes with a paranormal twist. (c) Copyright 2010.
