local police are called. Something’s not right with the guests. There’s been a fire. A body’s been discovered. The Next Mrs. Parrish - L. Constantine: Amber Patterson Parrish has come a long way. Hard work and immaculate planning turned her from invisible wallflower to prominent socialite, though there have been bumps along the way.

But with Jackson being released from prison, Amber’s free time - and money - is vanishing. 6/25: Don't Let the Devil Ride - A. Atkins: Addison McKellar isn’t clueless - she knows she and her husband Dean don’t have the perfect marriage - but she’s still shocked when he completely vanishes from her life.
