Summary

Sam and Haley Quaid buried their 10-year-old son and then ended their marriage, all in one week. It wasn’t a volatile divorce, but three years later, except for trading Christmas cards, Sam and Haley have completely lost touch...until a dramatic weather report sets their paths on a collision course once more.

Tropical Storm Gladys is heading straight toward coastal Texas, and locals are anxious as they prepare for potential devastation. Haley, a realtor, has an appointment to show a property and is determined to keep it, but a hurricane isn’t the only looming danger: news reports talk of two prisoners who’ve escaped from a nearby penitentiary only a few miles from the house Haley’s headed for.

When Sam’s phone rings with his ex-wife’s number, he immediately remembers the card he gave her when they parted on the courthouse steps. If you ever need me, call and I’ll be there. She hasn’t called in three years, and Sam is sure this can mean only one thing: Haley is in danger, and it’s up to him to save her.

With her trademark emotional intensity and breakneck pacing, Sharon Sala returns with a harrowing story of danger, loyalty, and the lengths we’ll go to protect the people we love most.

Sad

Sadly boring. Would not recommend. The writing was simple, not engaging. Kept hoping it would get better but it didn’t.

Dark Water Rising

This was one of “Sharon Sala’s best works. I say that because the character “ Mae Arnold” was like a page out of my life. I was living her discovering her dead husband being a lying, cheating adulterous man. Just like her everybody knew except me and that includes my child. But unlike her I never lived a happy ever after, still living the pain and hurt hoping happiness will come.

Not one of her best

Love her PI Dodge books but oh what a disappointment this one was. I thought it would get better but it was just so weak in its storyline. Very harlequin romance but more characters. it was really predictable and even the situations characters were in lacked intensity. I keep reading this author tho waiting for the next in the PI Dodge series but found this stand alone hard going.
