A Seahorse in the Thames


by Susan Meissner

Alexa Poole was to spend her week off from work quietly recuperating from minor surgery. But when carpenter Stephen Moran falls into her life--or rather off of her roof--the unexpected happens. His sweet, gentle disposition proves more than she can resist and now she's falling for him.

And then the news comes that Alexa's older sister, Rebecca, has vanished from the Faulkman Residential Center where she has lived for the past 17 years, since an auto accident left her mentally compromised. Alexa, fearing the worst, calls her twin sister in England, and Priscilla agrees to come home despite a strained seperation from her family--not only to find Rebecca but to deliver some startling news.

As Alexa begins the search for Rebecca, disturbing questions surface. Why did the car that Rebecca was riding in swerve off the road, killing her college friend, Leanne McNeil? And what about the mysterious check for $50,000 found in Rebecca's room and signed by her friend's father, Gavin McNeil?

And can Alexa, in love for the first time, embrace the news about Stephen's future with courage?

A Seahorse in the Thames is an emotional ride that begins and ends with the heart.

Pammer here: Susan has done it again. This is a masterfully created work of art. Her storytelling skills are so smooth, you are drawn into the story before you even know what hit you. Her characters are so rich and real that you root for them from the get go.

A Seahorse in the Thames is a story of hope and finding sparkles of wonderful gifts where you least expect them and often when you are not looking.

Wonderful and gripping, get this book.
