Evil at Shore Haven (Hardcover)
Antoinette LeJeune, better known as Andi, is now in charge of the private investigating business. When she is hired to look into the so-called drowning accident of Kitty Ralph, a resident of the upscale senior community Shore Haven, Andi sweet-talks R. A. Huber into coming out of retirement to pose as an elderly widow. The undercover job requires Huber to check herself in as 'resident' at Shore Haven's beachfront facility near the Ventura pier. She soon discovers that Mrs. Ralph's death was not the only suspicious fatality occurring at the place.
But it is not until Andi takes a trip to Reno, Nevada and Salt Lake City, Utah on her Harley- Davidson to interview relatives of recent casualty victims, that the motive for the crime starts to make sense. Both Andi and R. A. Huber ultimately come face to face with the villain and barely escape being silenced.
Leave No Trace captures, in extreme focus, the brutal cold and harsh winter conditions of the Boundary Wilderness area in Minnesota as psychiatric hospital speech therapist, Maya, works hard to develop her patients. When the hospital assigns her the tough nut to crack Lucas Blackthorne, whom was thought to be missing and presumed dead for 10 years, she is thrust into a role way above her paygrade and experience. The extreme conditions for both staff and patients will be eye opening, and Maya’s previous life unravels in layers as she tries to uncover truths from Lucas. Your body will instinctively curl up for warmth as Mejia deftly and elegantly describes how the wonder, beauty, majesty and cruel nature living in the Boundary Wilderness invades your soul. Highly-propulsive storytelling, with revealing truths parsed out until the very end, this is suspense at new and arresting heights! - Maureen
