As a young father, Mason Shaw had to grow up fast after enduring a questionable past. But when darkness comes knocking one winter’s night, leaving behind more questions than answers, his past resurfaces as the authorities begin to suspect something sinister at the Shaw residence.
An artist on the rise, Hattie Thatcher’s career as a glassblower is quickly garnering praise. When she receives a call from her ailing grandfather, she packs her belongings and heads back to the northwest to help. She then crosses paths with a disgruntled father who shifts her direction until the unimaginable happens. She is left questioning relationships, the love that intertwines, and the evil that slips through the cracks of a happy home.
Never Forgetting You is a heart wrenching, soul stretching, and emotionally fulfilling story that highlights the close bond between a father and his daughter.
For a limited time, Free digital edition available at the Kindle Bookstore.
“Hattie felt numb. Hutch had thoroughly spooked her and her skin tingled. What he was insinuating was absurd. And where was the information coming from? The copper didn’t push unless he was fishing for more info. He had to know something significant. Agitated, she asked, “Why are you asking me these questions?”
“You’re close to Mason. You’re the only person who spends nights at his place, in his bedroom. Has he ever done anything that seemed out of character?”
“No…no, no,” she stammered in anger.
“Not even a little bit?”
“What about his daughter? Have you ever seen them argue or get physical?”
“No. He loves Lucca more than anything, and he would do anything to know what happened to her, even if that means remaining a suspect in what can only be described as a crime that hasn’t been officially declared a crime.” Hattie stood in frustration. “This is ridiculous. I’m done. I can’t believe you’re suggesting this.”
“What I’m suggesting is that you might know your boyfriend as well as you think you do,” Austin stated flatly.
“And you do? What is your problem with him?”
Austin leaned back. “My problem is that he has a shoddy alibi. No one can corroborate his story. There are no witnesses, no family, no phone records that shed any light as to what happened at the Shaw house twenty-four hours prior to Lucca’s disappearance. The only person who could have backed up Mason’s story- you- was told to stay home at the last minute. That’s convenient. Very convenient. The last time anyone saw Lucca was at swim practice the morning before the storm. Twelve to twenty-four hours is completely unaccounted for. That’s a very large window of time. Anything could have happened.”
