Snow Angels Synopsis
A Romantic Mystery Novel

Read ebook

Tess Hunter is dissatisfied with her career in spite of her apparent success as a cookbook author, illustrator and magazine publisher. She wonders if she's made a wrong turn somewhere, and plans a surprise visit to her hometown in the Sierra Nevada, and her estranged family, to somehow break through their wall of silence and think through her career path. Tess has just finalized her plans when she learns of her family's sudden deaths in an accident. Overcome with grief for her parents and younger brother, Tess faces the unanswered question of why they kept her at a distance for the past eleven years.

On her arrival at her parents' house, Tess meets Joe Latimer, the neighbor she had a crush on as a girl. Joe has been close to Tess's family in recent years, and he thinks Tess initiated and maintained the rift between herself and her parents. Tess and Joe are drawn together, undeniably attracted to one another, even as they strive to sort out their resentment, jealousy and mistrust of each other's motives.

Tess reacquaints herself with old friends and old enemies. Then she begins receiving blackmail letters, which endanger her business with the threat to reveal publicly her alleged part in an accident years ago, days before her parents sent her away. Meanwhile, the sheriff tells Tess that her family's recent crash may not have been an accident.

Author's Notes

Snow Angels is a revision of the first novel I completed, in 1984. Originally titled Threads of Desire, and at that time strictly a romance, this is the story I revised at the request of a New York editor back in the 1980's. It wasn't published at the time, and since then I've revised Snow Angels again, to produce the finished romantic mystery you find here. This latest revision was completed several years after Shadows Fall was first published.
