|Plot Summary of Hidden Secrets|
Avon, Feb 2005, 5.99, 384 pp.
In Washington State Cascade Mountains, Spence Gerhard continues his quest to find his nephew, three years old Cody, or at least his remains. Over two and a half years ago Spence's sister and her ex-husband died when their pick-up left the snowy road, but Cody's body was not found.
Fresh Takes store owner Marlo Malone has the uncanny ability to know when death lurks and feels a fabric in her shop is trying to tell her something, but she prefers to ignore those feelings and remain on a “reality” path. Still she continues to sense that a little boy is calling for her to rescue him. She works on the clues her gift sends her way with little progress.
Spence is attracted to Marlo; she reciprocates but neither pursues these mutual feelings.
