An ex-con, wrongfully convicted of a heinous crime, returns to a small mountain town determined to prove his innocence, reclaim the heart of the woman who helped put him behind bars, and win back the right to meet the daughter he learned about in prison. But his arrival stirs up dark secrets and re-ignites a fierce and consuming passion that just might get the woman he loves, and his child, killed.
Nine years ago Rachel Salonen and Jeb Cullen were soul mates–deeply, irrevocably in love. Until the night two young women went missing from a party in the woods. One was found raped, beaten and pregnant with no memory of what happened. The other is still missing. A small mountain community was torn apart and a young relationship shattered when nineteen-year-old Jeb was arrested for the heinous crime, and Rachel was forced to help put the man she loved behind bars.
Now, nine years later, Rachel believes she’s finally put the past to rest when her sister dies suddenly in a fire and she’s made guardian of her adopted niece. A child, she learns, who was conceived that terrible night of violence, a child whose DNA was used to convict Jeb. And when Jeb is unexpectedly released from max security, Rachel sees that the past has only just begun…
… Because Jeb has come straight home to Snowy Creek. To prove his innocence, reclaim his life, his home. And to meet the daughter he learned about in prison. A daughter Rachel will do anything to protect.
And when the town turns violently on Jeb, Rachel will once again be forced to take sides. This time she chooses with her heart. But her decision could cost everything she holds dear–including her niece’s life. Because someone in town will do anything to keep the truth buried…even kill.
PIECES OF YOU is available from Amazon.
“Pieces of You is electrifying and engrossing, a provocative, intense, tiptop thriller. Loreth Anne White can’t get me back to Snowy Creek fast enough…The setting — a ski community in the mountains of British Columbia — is majestic and merciless, and plays a pivotal role in the story. It’s a close, closed off community, surrounded by glaciers and harboring seething emotion. White’s deft descriptions, and her inspired use of Snowy Creek’s natural features, add striking menace and full tilt tension…” ~ Kathy Altman, USA TODAY
