|Plot Summary of The Siren of Solace Glen|
Berkley, April 2005, 308 pp.
In the small Maryland town of Solace Glen, life looks good for Flip. Her cleaning business is doing so well that she needs to hire another person just to keep up with requests and she is engaged to marry the love of her life, the town lawyer Tom. All she wants is for her fiancée is to set a wedding date which he keeps postponing using the completion of their new house as an excuse.
Trouble arises for the town and Flip personally when the beautiful Stewart Lawton and her multimillionaire father come to town. Stewart was being stalked in California by someone who left notes and handcuffs (as well as other things) in her home and car. Having spent time in Solace Glen, Stewart moves into Flip's house which she bought hoping to get away form the stress. However, the stalker follows her to the quaint town, calling her and leaving such gifts and even going so far as to killing one of the local residents. Flip starts investigating and almost loses her life when she discovers the identity of the killer.
