Home Before Midnight
by Virginia Kantra

USA Today bestselling author Virginia Kantra delivers a haunting novel of suspense and passion, in which the sins of the past are never forgiven—and murder is never forgotten...

Years ago, Bailey Wells left behind her small-town North Carolina roots for the high life in New York City, working as a personal assistant to bestselling true crime author Paul Ellis. Now, Ellis and his wife are moving to rustic Stokesville, North Carolina, and Bailey follows them—right back home.

When Ellis's wife is murdered in their new house, Bailey attracts the attention of tough police detective Steve Burke, who cannot share his growing feelings for her as long as she is a murder suspect. But Bailey soon discovers that the violence is far from over. And that to bury a secret from the past, someone is willing to kill again...
