Freshly recovered from her adventures in Oregon wine country, Emma Golden is contacted by her old friend, Melody Wyatt, to help Melody find her missing sister, Aurora. Known as “the Bolter” 50-year-old Aurora has burned her way through a plethora of husbands and lovers. Newly re-invented by modern science, Aurora goes on the internet and ends up with Cliff Baker. She can’t wait to sell her condo, quit her job, and move with him to the Southern Oregon coast where – to Melody’s alarm – she drops out of sight.

A really good suspense novel, hard to put down. There is just enough mystery, true “woman type friendship and caring” and romance to keep those pages turning. Totally entertaining! Don’t underestimate this book as a romance novel. This is a book that can be enjoyed by men, too. The characters include a daring young man, a wild, wicked murder and a seasoned law officer that anyone would be happy to know. The characters make up a really good novel by this author. I want more from her!
