It’s release day for Midnight Sacrifice!
“Leigh takes us on a roller coaster ride of terror in this equally frightening and romantic story. Readers will escape into the little Northeast town with big secrets and will be surprised by what the author has planned next with each turn of the page. Her vast imagination will have suspense fans cheering, but some of the characters are complex—almost cryptic. All in all, a great read with a plot so thick, it can be cut with a knife.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 stars
“Leigh’s deft hand with crafting real-life characters shines, especially in her honest dialogue. She easily brings the Maine landscape to life and her descriptions of the inn and Mandy’s daily tasks of running it are detailed enough to draw the rooms around you but short enough not to bog you down in the wainscoting.” —Kiersten Hallie Krum, Heroes and Heartbreakers

“[A] refreshingly plot-heavy tale featuring a believable and endearing hero and heroine.” –RT Reviews
Point, click, die.
When two hikers disappear, their hometown in Maine blames the blinding storms. But the truth is far more sinister. Unaware of the danger, tabloid photographer Jayne Sullivan follows an anonymous tip to find the most reclusive sculptor in the art world. Instead, she finds sexy handyman Reed Kimball—and a small town full of fatal secrets.
Five years ago, Reed buried his homicide detective career along with his wife. But when a hiker is found dead, the local police chief asks Reed for help. Why was a Celtic coin found under the body? And where is the second hiker? Avoiding the media, Reed doesn’t need a murder, a missing person, or a nosey photographer. Then Jayne is attacked, and her courage is his undoing. Reed must risk everything to protect her and find a cunning killer.
