by Sherry Derr-Wille
Description: With her life threatened by a serial killer, Dani Karr ran to the only place she felt secure, Karr's Port. The retirement home that had belonged to her parents, sat in a secluded trailer park. There she could hide among the older residents and not have to face the inevitable. Hugh Anderson only wanted to get the new owner of Karr's Port to sell the trailer to him. He certainly didn't expect to become embroiled in a manhunt for the killer responsible for the only case he'd left unsolved when he left the Atlanta Police Force. He also didn't expect Jeremy Stone's latest victim to be someone with whom he could easily fall in love with.

Somehow, the word 'hangover' didn't seem strong enough for the pain he experienced. The phone rang again and he groped for it, trying to find it without opening his eyes.
"Hello," he said, his voice raspy, his tongue too thick to form the word properly.
"Hugh, did I wake you up?" Betty Adams' voice greeted him.
"It's all right, Betty," he assured her. "Is something wrong?"
"Well, not really wrong, but somebody is staying at Al and Molly's place."
Hugh flopped back against the pillow. "I know, at least I know she's coming--the daughter, I mean. I thought she would be driving down. I guess I misunderstood."
"She drove in last night at seven-thirty. I saw--"
