About the Novel
“Asking questions could cost your life.”
Two years after the plane crash that killed her fiancé, Amy Silver has fallen for his best friend, artist Michael Stratton. When a local reporter claims the small aircraft may have been sabotaged, it reopens Amy’s grief.
Anonymous warnings and threats are Amy’s only proof that the tragedy was deliberate, and she has nowhere to turn. The authorities don’t believe her, God is not an option, and Michael’s protection is starting to feel like a cage.
How will Amy find the truth?
Michael’s feisty great-aunt and the dead man’s university-student sister are the other key players in this Christian romantic suspense set in Nova Scotia, Canada.

The doorbell echoed from the main floor. Amy dropped the square of sandpaper onto the frame she’d been finishing and flexed her aching fingers.
Overhead, light footsteps headed for the door. Michael’s aunt could sign for the delivery, but Amy wanted to check the boxes. She rolled her shoulders to work out a kink, then slid from the stool and brushed a layer of dust from her clothing.
Aunt Bay’s voice met her at the top of the basement stairs. “She may not want to talk to you.”
Not the printer order after all. She, as in me? Amy took a few silent steps but stopped out of sight.
“Please, I’m on a deadline.” A male voice, light and with a hint of a quiver.
Amy grinned. Aunt Bay had that effect when she wanted. It might be fun to let her soften this guy up a bit more, but Amy stepped into the hallway. “Is there a problem?”
Aunt Bay huffed at the man. “Come in, then. But if she says no, you’ll be leaving.”
The visitor took three quick steps inside before Michael’s aunt could change her mind. “Amy Silver?”
He wasn’t much bigger than Aunt Bay, but closer to Amy’s age. A bit older, maybe in his late 20s. Black, with tight-curled hair and black-framed glasses. Despite the passive voice, his gaze spoke determination. “I’m Troy Hicks, a friend of Michael’s. I’m a journalist.”
“Okay.” Amy nodded, waiting. Did he want to write about the art studio? But why would Aunt Bay object?
Troy adjusted the laptop bag strap on his shoulder. “I know this is a sensitive topic for you, but I’d like to ask about your accident.”
