We recently republished this title with considerable rewrites, and thanks to the editing of Kristin Billerbeck and Jill Eileen Smith, I think the book has all its ducks in a row:
Shona Tremaine, daughter of and assistant to State Senator Kemper MacDonald, decides to resign after a heated public argument with her father about his shady politics. Before she can give notice, however, she finds him murdered in their home, and she becomes a prime suspect. Worse, her life could be in danger.
Rising local television news anchor Geoffrey Tremaine thought he’d left the world of politics forever when he resigned from his position with Senator MacDonald last year. What he hadn’t expected was that his wife, Shona, would stay with her father. Their bitter separation has been fodder for public rumors and innuendoes for nearly a year. But when Geoff receives news of his father-in-law’s murder, he cannot turn his back on Shona, despite his new employer’s demands that he reveal all about the skeletons in the MacDonald family closet—or he will lose his job.
Shona confides to Geoff that she’d been planning to leave her father and politics behind, but then announces in their television interview that she would be willing to take her father’s place if her name is cleared. What is Geoff to believe? Will they be able to find a way through the rubble of their past? Will a determined murderer succeed in ending the MacDonald family legacy?
