Return to Blackwater House (Paperback)
You can run from your past, but you can't hide forever...

She has everything she's ever wanted - the perfect fiancé, a loving stepdaughter, a career she's proud of, and now the house of her dreams.
But when the family move to the Cornish village where Rebecca grew up, everything she wanted to bury from those years starts to claw at the surface.
Then, when her stepdaughter goes missing at a New Year's Eve party, Rebecca must finally face the ghosts of her past - or Ava might never come home safely...
