Reporter Claire Aldridge learns of Daniel’s unsolved abduction and vows to unearth the truth—only to discover that she and Vera are linked in unexpected ways.”

Shiver by Karen Robards (F ROB)

“If driving a tow truck through the seediest part of town means putting a roof over her son’s head, then Samantha Jones is going to be the best repo woman on the books. But she’s having a bad day—she finds a man, bloodied and bound—in the trunk of her latest repo.”
