"Thrilling ride of mystery, danger and love!"
Jack just knows the plane crashing in the Rockies was his
fault. All the other passengers on the small commuter plane
are now dead because of him. So he gathers the dead in one
spot and looks through the wreckage for whatever he can
find that could be of use to him. In the middle of this, he
hears something and heads for the sound. He looks down the
side of the cliff and sees someone on a ledge. Eventually
he manages to get down there and finds Sophie, with a badly
broken leg. Somehow, the two of them manage to survive
seven days until help arrives. However, by the time it
does, Jack is unconscious. While in the hospital, Sophie is
told Jack died, but he made sure she would be taken care of
with surgeries, therapy and whatever will help her.
Then we jump ahead eight years. Sophie has never forgotten
Jack, she even married a man who looked like him.
Unfortunately for her, he took off on her after they moved
to a small town. For some reason, Sophie has felt a pull to
live by the mountains and now she does, along with her two
children and Jinni, her housekeeper. For Sophie is a single
mother with two young children to support and a café to
run. Like any other single parent, money is tight for
Sophie and things end up being put off. However, a change
in Sophie's life is right around the corner when Jack walks
into town. Even though he introduces himself as Martin,
Sophie just knows he is Jack.
How did Jack become a drifter? Why is he calling himself
Martin? Is he running from something? Will he stay in
Serenity Falls with Sophie, or will he keep moving? Is
there a chance for Sophie and Jack?
DEAD AGAIN is a thrilling, exciting story of danger and
love. Tracy Cooper-Posey keeps the suspense high in this
story as we wait for Martin to admit he is indeed Jack.
Throughout most of the story there is an aura of mystery
surrounding Jack. And Sophie is a wonderful heroine as her
strength is proven time and time again, beginning with her
time in the mountains after the crash. I loved the way
neither one of them could stay away from the mountains in
the winter and how they eventually found each other. And
the identity of the villain took me by surprise. Read this
story, you won't be sorry you did.

A small plane crashes in the Rockies and the only two survivors, Jack and Sophie, help each other live until rescue arrives, seven days later. Only Sophie goes on to pick up the pieces of her life, which has now been irrevocably changed by big, gentle Jack’s love…and death.
But Sophie learns that Jack’s death didn’t close that chapter of her life, after all. A drifter called Martin holds the key to her heart, alongside a deadly secret. Combined with a corrupt and desperate police chief and her pressure-cooker life as a single mother in a small town, they plunge her head-deep into the aftershocks caused by those seven days in the mountains. The consequences will reach out to rock state governors, district attorneys and one of the deadliest crime lords in the land, and all of them have reason to react. For Sophie, life is about to change again…for the worse.
