Rainy days and river views fill Beth’s summer as she makes a new start in small town Washington, North Carolina.  After the loss of her husband in a tragic accident, simple seems better.  It’s time to renovate her life, starting with a future art gallery on the river.  Sam, her contractor, has everything under control, but the stress of the construction project and new business is beginning to make her crazy.  Nightmares and visions of ghosts become the nightly norm.  She doesn’t have time for this.  She doesn’t have time for her heart to make room for him.


Sam is happy filling his days and nights with work.  His two jobs as a teacher and contractor are his passions and do not leave room for much else.  This new project has possibilities: a beautiful owner, the history of the house, and an 18th century diary. Beth’s dream is becoming a timely reality until she disappears.


Mystery and intrigue fill the haunting river bank of the Pamlico as Sam and Beth find the truth behind the Water Street house and each other.



Snippet #1

The breeze coming off the river felt wonderful. A bench called her name as seagulls inched closer, eyeballing her breakfast. She gave them a glare wishing them away knowing they were not going anywhere until all the food was gone. The buttery croissant went perfectly with her iced citrus mint tea. The caffeine hit her system and her brain went into hyperdrive as she thought about the art she was selecting with Martin this afternoon. He was doing such a great job finding the bright colored masterpieces for the gallery. He said there were a few surprises for her in this afternoons batch. She couldn’t wait.
