A Turn in the Road
A new novel of mystery and romance from the popular author of the Hampton saga
Orphaned whilst still in her teens, and forced to give up her illegitimate baby for adoption, April Winston must make her own way in life. She forges a career as a successful New York lawyer, and enjoys the wealth and respect that come with it. But there's something missing. She yearns to know what has happened to her long-lost baby daughter, and envies her married friends Bob and Nicole their happy family home. When Bob offers April partnership in his small-town legal practice, she seizes the opportunity of a quieter, more fulfilling pace of life.
Within days of April's arrival, however, the little town of Magnolia is shaken to its core by the sudden death of a baby girl. Bob and April are soon drawn into what will fast become a complex, disturbing and - for April, especially - emotional murder inquiry.
