Out of the Storm

  “The most difficult person to forgive is yourself.”

Some brief excerpts from reader reviews. Visit Out of the Storm on Amazon for the complete 4 and 5 star reviews…

“I am a voracious reader of mystery/suspense who demands a fast-paced novel with intriguing characters and plot. Out of the Storm satisfied all these requirements and more. The protagonist Eric is a credible character with whom the reader can empathize. The author endows him with heroic qualities but wisely avoids the clichés…”

Out of the Storm is a page-turner. It begins when a mystery woman (Ashley) appears at the protagonist’s door. The novel slowly evolves into a complex thriller involving domestic terrorists.”

“Out of the storm begins with two very different, but compelling characters. Eric is a retired special forces hero… trying unsuccessfully to get on with his life after the tragic death of his wife and unborn child. Ashley… is charming, but complex, and running from some mysterious past. She becomes a ray of hope for Eric”

“Was Ashley the Dream he’d prayed for or the nightmare he couldn’t escape?”

Bass_River_Marina_postcard_300x270Bass_River_Marina_postcard_croppedGreen Beret Team Leader Eric Montgomery is certain he’s left war, meaningless death and disillusionment behind. After five endless years in the Middle East he resigns his commission and returns to his Cape Cod home. He has two dreams: restore his families’ crumbling marina and marry Elaine, his childhood sweetheart. But when Elaine and their unborn daughter die in a tragic car accident, Eric’s hopes for the perfect life are shattered. His hopes of leaving tragedy and pointless death in the Afghani Mountains were an illusion. Due to a foolish misunderstanding, Eric blames himself for Elaine’s death. As the long empty months pass he hides, fortifying himself behind a wall of regret, alcohol, and cold indifference. Suddenly, without warning, in the midst of a violent nor’easter a young woman and her daughter appear on his doorstep. Eric has met Ashley Fitzhugh only once—a decade earlier when she was a teenager. Precocious, innocent, and lovely, Ashley was the daughter of the woman Eric’s ne’er do well older brother lived with. Now, after a decade of silence her mother’s mysterious death prompts Ralph to insist that Ashley and her seven-year-old daughter leave. Alone and desperate they have nowhere else to run, so Ashley makes the long, difficult journey, seeking out Eric. But a frightening and cryptic phone message leads Eric to believe he may have misjudged his brother… and that the girls may be in danger. As days pass without incident, Eric finds himself warming to the girls, even seeing them as the family he lost. Just as Eric begins to feel at ease with his new companions mystery resurfaces calling their credibility and true purpose into question. While Eric’s feelings for Ashley and her beautiful little girl deepen so does his fear they may not be the innocent runaways they appear. Frightening phone calls, mysterious men following them, and a violent attack on Eric’s marina follow as he and the girls find themselves snared in a web of death, intrigue, and terror. He wonders if this enigmatic young woman and her daughter are the family he dreamt of or a nightmare he can’t awaken from. Ashley’s affectionate young daughter, Eric’s devoted ex mother-in-law, government operatives worthy of Ludlum and Lee Child and a cruel, driven villain augment the strong, complex primary players.  As Eric and Ashley fall in love, he is faced with the reality that his lovely young companion is bait. A tempting prize to catch a man who has hatched a diabolical scheme to make 9-11 pale by comparison. In the fashion of all good thrillers, despite technology and a cast of dozens, in the end only Eric can save Ashley and Kylie from the diabolical and sadistic villain! Out of the Storm is both a romance and a finely crafted thriller that moves in staccato fashion. It will keep you on the edge of your seat!
