sins of pastThree award-winning writers (Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey, and Lynette Eason) collaborate on a romantic suspense novella collection. Each novella has the theme of a buried past that resurfaces, creating dangerous complications: the disappearance of a cop’s mother, a dead body found in Alaskan fishing waters, and a woman haunted by what she can’t remember.

In Missing (Dee Henderson), Wyoming police chief John Graham returns to Chicago following the disappearance of his mother from her retirement community. He joins forces with Lieutenant Sharon Noble to locate and rescue his mother before time runs out. Whose past is the reason behind her kidnapping?

In Shadowed (Dani Pettrey), Alaskan fisherman Ben McKenna and competitive swimmer Libby Jennings face danger and romance. When they search for answers in the recent death of a Russian swimming competitor, they find themselves in the middle of espionage, Russian and American agents.

In Blackout (Lynette Eason), Macey Adams finds herself in danger as her memory of a botched robbery starts to return and the newly paroled mastermind behind the robbery is convinced she knows where the loot is hidden. Detective Chad Latham tries to protect Macey from danger as the culprit becomes more desperate.

Lynette Eason, Dee Henderson, and Dani Pettrey are master storytellers in the inspirational romantic suspense genre. Their fans will enjoy these novellas, especially Pettrey’s prequel to her Alaskan Courage series. Novellas are shorter in length, and these range from 199 pages to 132 pages. Yet each is well-crafted by its author, and the stories are vintage Henderson, Pettrey, and Eason.

Pettrey’s most recent book is Cold Shot (February 2016), Henderson’s most recent book is Traces of Guilt (May 2016), and Eason’s most recent book is Without Warning (August 2016).

Recommended for adult collections in public and church libraries.
