It was an unexpected friendship.

Corporate CEO, Katherine Lantz, lives in a New York City high rise with her adoring husband, five children and three dogs. Sadie Walters spent fifteen years caring for her invalid parents. Now she lives alone in their country cottage, twenty miles from her nearest neighbor.

When the pair meet at an online needlepoint forum, they feel an instant bond. A year later, Sadie invites Katherine for a long weekend of conversation, needlepoint and country tranquility.

It’s a perfect weekend until Sadie disappears, the power fails and Katherine is left alone with the light of the moon and the howls of wolves coming closer and closer.

If Katherine wants to see her family again, she will need to muster more than boardroom savvy.


Book Blurb Friday is hosted by Lisa Ricard Claro, who posts a weekly photo and challenges us to “write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.” That’s quite a challenge, but it’s a lot of fun as well. Click on the image at the left to read more blurbs or enter one of your own. 

This week’s blurb has 127 words.
