Crushed by a broken heart ten years ago, Cleo Tanner walked away from her acting dreams and now leads a quiet, secluded life in Seattle. Sylvia, her best friend from college, is trapped in a loveless marriage, distraught by her inability to conceive a child – until an adoption agency owner in relentless pursuit of Cleo offers to help.
Just as Sylvia begins to experience a profound love that only a mother can feel, a detective approaches Cleo with disturbing questions about the adoption agency. Determined to protect her friend, Cleo jumps into a dangerous investigation that forces her to confront the ghosts of her past.

What was Tess Thompson’s Inspiration behind writing romantic suspense novels?
My goal is to write plots that move quickly and do not allow the reader to have any reason to put the book down, therefore I weave in mystery and twists and turns. But I’m also most interested in love – its redemptive and healing power, the beauty of relationships and the magical way two people can fall in love. Romantic love is something we all long for, no matter our age or position in life. Regardless, life is still wonderful, but there’s an emptiness without a partner to share this journey with; humans are meant to be in romantic partnership. For this reason, I’m drawn to telling love stories.
I wonder sometimes, though, if part of the reason I write love stories is because it’s been so intangible in my real life. I’ve yet to find my one and only, or as I say in Caramel and Magnolias, my person. Perhaps I’ll write only the suspense part after I finally meet the right person. I doubt it. No, probably not. Love is love, after all.
