About the Book
The big cat sat on the oversized rock, ears pointed toward the sky, every muscle taut, every sense at the ready.
“S-s-shut up and f-f-forget it. You’ve s-seen nothing and know nothing. I won’t warn you again. G-g-got it?”
The cat’s head swiveled, his ears twitching as if catching the hint of threat in the whisper. A soft hiss slid from his open mouth and reinforced the overtone of evil pressing in upon the scene. Within hours, lies and dark secrets are slithering all over the campground.
Coaxed into finding the animal killer at Jamieson’s Outfitters, Tara Layne, with her sidekick, Boet, is welcomed by a threatening whisper and the unfriendly eyes of a rugged and devastatingly handsome manager. Wesley Clarke, both interesting and frustrating, holds an attraction for Tara that is primitive and exasperating.
Intermingled with her search, Tara deals with her own heartbreaking buried secrets. When a strange old Native American probes into the recesses of her heart, he encourages her to face her bitter feelings.
As Tara closes in on her search, she finds herself—and Boet—the target of someone who’s determined to outrun and outsmart her. Someone determined not to get caught.
Fun as fast as you can, you can’t catch me.
Can Tara run fast enough to catch this real live Gingerbread boy
before he decides to get rid of her and Boet?
Catch Me if You Can Excerpt Five
She smothered her indignation to a low roar, in deference to the watching couple and whoever else might be enjoying this late night show. “Put me down right now.”
Wesley’s long legs licked up the distance to her cabin. “You’re scared.”
“I am not scared.”
“Your voice was shaking.”
“I was cold.”
“That thing startled me for a minute.”
She thought she heard him grunt.
“You are so in trouble. I know judo.”
Did she hear a snicker?
He paid no heed to her muted demands and the threats of bodily harm she issued between the bounces. As he climbed the steps of her cabin, Tara smacked his back with a fist.
Mindful of the nosy neighbors, she lowered her voice, “I am very angry. I’m calling Brian as soon as I get done tearing you apart.”
“Running for help so soon?”
Wesley turned her doorknob and nudged the door open with the toe of his boot. As he stepped inside, he dropped her to the floor, grasped her shoulders and stood gazing down into her eyes. “Decided to get you to your cabin the quickest way. Thought you might have hit your head on something when the canoe overturned.”
