Night Watch by Linda HallDesolate Maine shores… Murder… And peace slipping away on the outgoing tide…

For Em Ridge, having a billionaire’s daughter go overboard is not the best way to start her first ever job as yacht delivery captain of a state of the art sailboat. Her crew on this trip of a lifetime include two close sailing friends, an unknown young man who can’t even seem to tie a bowline despite his impressive sailing resume, plus the owner’s unruly daughter. It’s this girl who seems to taunt Em with knowledge of Em’s late husband.

Almost two years ago Em buried her husband, her soulmate, her sailing buddy, and with him she buried a secret, a secret which, on this trip, threatens to surface. As hours on the open seas tick by, secrets are resurrected that tie Em’s past to a present awash with murderous intents, poisonous plants, stolen artwork and death.

Will Em’s career go overboard? Will the investigating detective help her or hurt her? Any why does the best boat delivery captain on the east coast pull at her heart strings?

The oft foggy coast of Maine holds secrets it does not want to give up, and a lot of bodies can be hidden in The Pine Tree State’s largest city.

NIGHT WATCH is available from Amazon.
