In the exciting conclusion to the SECOND CHANCES trilogy, Peter Campbell reconnects with his past to protect a special little boy and his mother - and the wall he's built around his heart begins to crumble.

Broken in both mind and body, Peter retreats to a farm in western Ireland far away from the dangerous world he used to embrace, but he can’t travel far enough to escape the debilitating anxiety attacks and horrific nightmares. As Peter begins the delicate task of rebuilding his life, he becomes entangled in the complicated and secretive lives of his neighbors—a precocious six-year-old boy and his mother.  To save Maggie and her son he must build a bridge to his own past and tear down the wall he’s built around his heart.

He’s a broken man incapable of love—or is he?


Ten-year-old Emily Anders goes missing while in the care of an elderly neighbor. 

Mounting circumstantial evidence focuses suspicion on one of the neighbors, but the occurrence is eerily similar to a past tragedy which occurred in the historic home.

The tenants in the aging Victorian house where Emily shares an apartment with her newly divorced father struggle to deal with Emily’s mysterious disappearance as they face their own personal struggles.

What happened to Emily?



When Peter is kidnapped, Lindsay is faced with a difficult choice: travel to a poverty-stricken, terrorist-filled Arab country to save his life, or leave his survival to chance.

So begins the action in BEYOND SECOND CHANCES, the exciting sequel to SECOND CHANCES.

Lindsay Talbot makes her choice, and pays the price.  However, as Lindsay recuperates from a violent assault much closer to home, she is confronted with a devastating betrayal - and an uncertain future.



A young woman accepts a drink from a charming man at a cocktail party--and terror soon replaces the tedium of her once ordinary life.


The drugged champagne is a one-way ticket to an isolated life across an international landscape controlled and scripted by her aloof, wealthy, enigmatic--but surprisingly benevolent--captor.


SECOND CHANCES is Lindsay Talbot's story of survival as she faces shocking truths, heart-breaking loss...and the shocking confession of the man she loves.​

Cassie’s Journey chronicles Cassie’s life culminating in a violent and calculated confrontation with her past. The stakes are high: outwit a murderer and enjoy a future with the man she loves - or die.
