"To Meg Hazard, it seemed like a good idea at the time: squeezing her extended family into the back rooms of their rambling Victorian home and converting the rest of the house into a Bed and Breakfast in the coastal town of Bar Harbor, Maine. But that was before the leaky roof, the balky furnace, and the fuel oil spill in the basement. That was before the inheritance of an exquisite, museum-quality dollhouse with a haunting story of its own to tell. And that was before her much-loved, much-younger and very beautiful sister Allie fell in love with Chicago cop Tom Wyler, who was there simply to put himself back together physically and emotionally after a shattering episode of violence back home. Meg, the Responsible One, has complete sympathy for everyone. What she doesn't have is complete control over her emotions ....Reviews..."A deft blend of mystery and romance ... Stockenberg, who won a RITA [for EMILY'S GHOST], is sure to win more kudos for her latest."--Publishers Weekly"A well-written, engaging story of two caring people who have all but given up on finding love."--Library Journal"All the ingredients that whisper 'best seller' ... reading EMBERS is a night of pure pleasure."--Gothic Journal"EMBERS is a delight -- a beautifully crafted, wholly involving story that explores the complexities of family, sisters and love, creating relationships that sparkle with warmth, wit, and authenticity. I thoroughly enjoyed it."--Katherine Stone"Antoinette Stockenberg has become a major force in women's contemporary mainstream romantic fiction. EMBERS is a moving work involving obsession, betrayal, and thwarted passions ... The chilling use of supernatural elements to emphasize the events of the past only enhances a book that has 'classic' written all over it."--Affaire de Coeur."-- Provided by publisher.
