What you need to know before your trail

Private Investigator Clay Maynard locates missing children for clients, but has nearly given up hope of finding his own daughter, cruelly stolen from him by his ex-wife twenty-three years ago.

Equine therapist Taylor Dawson has chosen to intern at Daphne Montgomery-Carter’s stables so that she can observe the program’s security director – her father, Clay Maynard. Trying to reconcile the wonderful man she’s getting to know with the monster her mother always described, Taylor never expects to become the target of a real monster, the man who murdered the mother of the little girls she works with at the stable. Neither does she expect to fall for Ford Elkhart, Daphne’s handsome son, who is dealing with his own demons. As family and friends gather for a wedding, Taylor starts to imagine a permanent life in Baltimore.

Travel Guide


The backdrop to this novel is the city of Baltimore and centres around the police and law enforcement. The city is a backdrop rather than a character yet its streets and parks get a nod and the various areas of the city are referenced regularly.

A major setting here is the equine therapy centre just on the outskirts of the city.  People traumatized by an event come here to heal with the help of horses – taking care of them, riding and learning to concentrate on something other then their pain.
