The secrets of the past are always closer than we think…
Julie Keller relishes the simple things: hot chocolate on winter nights, good friends she calls her family, and her laid-back career as a massage therapist and yoga instructor. Julie is content with her life until Chase Rider returns to Bakersfield.
Bodyguard Chase Rider isn’t thrilled to be back in the town where he spent his childhood summers. His beloved grandmother passed away, leaving him a house in need of major repairs. With a three-week timetable and a lot to do, he doesn’t have time for distractions. Then he bumps into Julie, the one woman he hoped never to see again. Chase tries to pretend Julie doesn’t exist, but ten years hasn’t diminished his attraction to the hazel-eyed stunner.
When a stranger grabs Julie’s arm at the grocery store—a woman who insists Julie’s life isn’t what it seems, Chase can’t help but get involved. Julie and Chase dig into a twenty-five-year-old mystery, unearthing more questions than answers. But the past is closer than they realize, and the consequences of the truth have the potential to be deadly.
*NOTE: While reading the series in order is recommended, it is not necessary. Each story is a stand-alone title featuring new primary characters with limited overlapping secondary characters.*
“Cate Beauman has been added to my “purchase no matter what she writes” list. Most romance novels are usually predictable however this one contained a few surprises for me. Answers for Julie is a very sweet second chance romance with a great deal of suspense and mystery. I definitely look forward to the next installment in the series for a glimpse of what’s happening with all of the characters in this book.”
