From The Back Cover
The big cat sat on the oversized rock, ears pointed toward the sky, every muscle taut, every sense at the ready.
“S-s-shut up and f-f-forget it. You’ve s-seen nothing and know nothing. I won’t warn you again. G-g-got it?”
The cat’s head swiveled, his ears twitching as if catching the hint of threat in the whisper. A soft hiss slid from his open mouth and reinforced the overtone of evil pressing in upon the scene. Within hours, lies and dark secrets are slithering all over the campground.
Coaxed into finding the animal killer at Jamieson’s Outfitters, Tara Layne, with her sidekick, Boet, is welcomed by a threatening whisper and the unfriendly eyes of a rugged and devastatingly handsome manager. Wesley Clarke, both interesting and frustrating, holds an attraction for Tara that is primitive and exasperating.
Intermingled with her search, Tara deals with her own heartbreaking buried secrets. When a strange old Native American probes into the recesses of her heart, he encourages her to face her bitter feelings.
As Tara closes in on her search, she finds herself—and Boet—the target of someone who’s determined to outrun and outsmart her. Someone determined not to get caught.
His theme: Run as fast as you can, you can’t catch me.
The question: Can Tara run fast enough to catch this real live Gingerbread boy
before he decides to get rid of her and Boet?
Catch Me if You Can Excerpt Three
“I don’t know. Who cares about him?” “Him?” Wesley jerked the two ends of the rope to tighten the knot. “Or her.” Tara struggled to keep the crazy thought to herself then gave in. “It didn’t look human to me.” “Nonsense. Someone was waiting, probably wanting to talk with me. When they saw us capsize, they hightailed it out of here, afraid we’d be angry.”
“Why would they think we’d be angry? That makes no sense.” Wesley wiped his damp palms on wet clothes. In slow motion, he straightened and strode toward her. Tara tensed and eased backward. In less than two seconds, Wesley stood over her. He bent at the knees and in a swift move, swept her up in his arms and tossed her over his shoulder as if she was a feed sack.
For a moment, she was stunned. What did he think he was doing? She hadn’t been treated so ignobly since the time her brothers talked her into playing Joan of Arc. Tied to a stake, with fire dancing around her, she shrieked for help. A furious Grandfather Poppy rescued her. The retribution mitigated upon the two culprits came swiftly. A frightened, but unharmed, Tara relished the punishment upon her brothers.
