TWICE BURNED by JAN COFFEY
A man awaits execution for a murder he did not commit . . .
A woman returns to a place of scandal and death to save her
brother . . . A small town's simmering secrets are about to
ignite in a blaze of suspicion and deadly retribution . . .
Twenty years ago, Léa and Ted Hardy came home from school
to find their parents dead, victims of a murder-suicide.
Léa leaves the small town of Stonybrook and the painful
memories behind. But Ted can't seem to escape the past.
Marrying the pampered daughter of Stonybrook's leading
family, he starts a new life -- until he discovers secrets
that lead to the death of his wife and daughters. And to
accusations of murder. Now, convicted and facing execution,
Ted has given up hope.
Then Léa receives anonymous letters proclaiming Ted's
innocence. Determined to save her brother, she must return
to a town that harbors a fierce desire to see Ted die . . .
taking long-buried secrets with him. Desperate, Léa turns
to Mick Conklin, a man she is deeply attracted to but
cannot fully trust. She needs an ally, now more than ever.
Because the fuse has been lit, and the bright fires of
truth are about to blow Stonybrook wide open.
