Becca Hart is a fellow writer whom I have had the privilege of getting to know personally and receive feedback from on my own work. She has written both urban fantasy and contemporary romance. Later this year, she will be coming out with a romantic suspense called Against All Odds, inspired in part by Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
Below is the teaser for her book:
Two years after a violent break-in left Elizabeth Seymour widowed and with blood on her hands, she’s finally starting over in the little town of Avalon, Ohio, with her daughter, Haley. She has the house of her dreams, a good church, and friends she can rely on. Everything seems to be falling into place–until she receives a threatening note from Veronica Sadowsky, the sister of the man Elizabeth shot, the same woman who tried to ruin her life once before. This time, though, Veronica won’t stop until she gets revenge.
When Elizabeth’s home goes up in flames, she turns to a family friend, Doctor Gilbert Callahan, a widowed father of three. He invites her and Haley to stay with his family. As Veronica draws Elizabeth into a game of increasing stakes, she and Gilbert only grow closer, learning to trust and rely on each other. But Elizabeth’s presence in Gilbert’s home endangers his family and creates tension with his oldest son. Preserving peace in the house is hard enough, but when Veronica comes after Haley, Elizabeth will risk everything–including her life–to get her child back.
