"Exciting romantic suspense"
Thirty-eight year old widow Hannah feels lonely and weary
after the several months long legal battle against her
late spouse's adult children sired in his first marriage.
Max's children were nasty, harassing and threatening
Hannah as their wealthy father left his entire estate to
her. Finally settled and with these ugly people out of
her life, Hannah sells the corporation to those who helped
Max make it so successful.
Very rich and successful in her own name, Hannah needs a
diversion and it apparently arrives in the mail. Her
Willaville High School is hosting a twentieth graduation
party inviting her to attend. She decides to go home,
dreaming of the home that she was raised in though
ignoring the dark memory that sent her parents fleeing
from town. Hannah buys her home and finds herself still
attracted to Dr. Jeremy Larson, whom she had a crush on
when they were in high school. As she re-makes friends
and heals silly disputes Hannah still must deal with a
killer and the force that propelled her parents to move if
she wants to claim that you can go home.
Though there is a romantic subplot and a murder mystery,
DESTINATION UNKNOWN is a combination relationship drama
inside a supernatural thriller. The story line works
because Hannah and the secondary players, mostly her high
school friends and enemies and her beloved physician seem
so genuine especially how each interacts over the course
of the book with the heroine. That in turns enables the
killer to be more than a caricature, the paranormal to
feel real, and the reader to finish this suspense tale in
