Now the remains of the housekeeper Maria Alverez, who was watching the infant and her two siblings, has finally been found, but the lost baby remains missing. In Kansas City, Sable believes she is that abducted child. As a student in Forensics 101, she learned that her parents could not have produced her with the different blood types between her and them. She uncovers more circumstantial evidence and now criminologist Sable wonders if Faith and Jacob Langtry are her biological parents.

    Accompanied by her friend, Sable travels to meet the Langtry family though she doe not tell them why she come to see them. On first meeting with Sable, Faith believes in her heart that she is her child. Sable turns to Langtry neighbor Culley Blackwolf for help in learning the truth as the duo shares an attraction, but as they fall in love, will veracity end any permanent relationship between them?

    Though coincidence brings the two-decade-old kidnapping case to the attention of Sable, readers will enjoy this powerful romantic suspense novel. Once the players are introduced the story line hums with tension and romance as everyone including the audience wonders if Sable really is the lost child. LEAVING LONELY TOWN shows why readers always obtain full value and more from a Cait London novel.
