In The Senator’s Wife, readers are introduced to D.C. philanthropist Sloane Chase and Senator Whit Montgomery. Two years ago, in a tragic series of events, both Sloane and Whit lost their spouses. The horrifying ordeal drew them together, and now they’re ready to settle down again—with each other. As Sloane returns to the world of White House dinners and political small talk, this time with her new husband, she’s also preparing for an upcoming hip replacement—the latest reminder of the lupus diagnosis she’s managed since her twenties. With their hectic schedules, they decide to hire a home health aide to give Sloane the support she’ll need. And they find the perfect fit in Athena Karras. Seemingly a godsend, Athena tends to Sloane, and even helps her run her charitable foundation. But Sloane quickly begins to deteriorate—a complication, Athena explains, of Sloane’s lupus. As Sloane becomes sicker, and her uncertainty quickly turns to paranoia, she begins to suspect the worst. Why is Athena asking her so many probing questions about her foundation—about her past? Could Sloane be imagining the sultry looks between Athena and her new husband? Who exactly has she welcomed into her home? Set in the cut-throat society of D.C. philanthropists and politicians (hello Scandal!), The Senator’s Wife is a riveting, fast-paced thriller filled with unbelievable twists that upend the private lives of those who walk the halls of power. In this town, anyone is replaceable…
In What Remains, Detective Elise Sutton is drawn to cold cases. Each crime is a puzzle to solve, pulled from the past. Elise looks for cracks in the surface and has become an expert on how murderers slip up and give themselves away. She has dedicated her life to creating a sense of order, at work with her ex-marine partner; at home with her husband and two young daughters; and within, battling her own demons. Elise has everything under control, until one afternoon, when she walks into a department store and is forced to make a terrible choice: to save one life, she will have to take another. Elise is hailed as a hero, but she doesn’t feel like one. Steeped in guilt, and on a leave of absence from work, she’s numb, even to her husband and daughters, until she connects with Wade Austin, the tall man whose life she saved. But Elise soon realizes that he isn’t who he says he is. In fact, Wade Austin isn’t even his real name. The tall man is a ghost, one who will set off a terrifying game of cat and mouse, threatening Elise and the people she loves most.
