When Faye spies a child too young to be wandering along a creek alone, she follows the girl. A day later she uncovers a dying woman, buried alive near a spot where Kali might well be hiding. Nobody would blame Faye for running hard, but she can't make herself leave Kali, the woman's now orphaned daughter, who might be in danger. She's not welcomed by the people in Kali's struggling community, nor by the police working the crime. Yet she stays, for Kali, and for the bereaved who need her to communicate their fears to a police department that they trust even less than they trust Faye. When they confide rumors of other women beaten to death by a man so obsessed with burial that he places fresh flowers in their cold hands, Faye begs the police to widen the investigation to seek a serial killer. They refuse. Faye's gut is telling her that a monster is stalking Memphis, endangering the child she has come to love. If the police can't catch him, then she will have no choice but to try to find him herself.

Cincinnati, Ohio : Cincinnati Book Publishing, 2018.

"The book is a fictional memoir based on actual events. The inspiration for the book came from hundreds of letters and other accounts written by Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur who were living in German-occupied Belgium and Italy during World War Two. Turner created a composite character, Sister Christina, who is described as an Ohio farm girl, who joined the Sisters of Our Lady of Namur to teach English and agricultural skills to young Catholic girls. Assigned to Belgium in 1939, she worked Nazi-occupied Belgium for the duration of World War Two. She and other Sisters of Our Lady of Namur in the Saint-Hubert Convent quickly learned that living their normal contemplative, disciplined lives was impossible in a country controlled by ruthless Nazis. Soon they were risking their lives by joining forces with the Belgian Resistance to hide refugees, Jews, and downed American pilots. Sister Christina believed her ordeal was over in September of 1944 when American troops liberated Saint-Hubert. That hope was crushed when Saint-Hubert was recaptured by the German army during the Battle of the Bulge; forcing the Sisters to revert to their tactics for survival and resistance until liberated for the second time."--Provided by publisher.

"Practice makes perfect. Patrick "Patch" Donnelly has what it takes to be the best goalie in the NHL...if only he could learn to control his temper. When Coach orders him to get his head in the game with private yoga classes, Patch isn't having it. There's no way this tough Boston guy would be caught dead downward dog-ing his way to inner peace. But if he refuses, he risks his starting position and the dream he sacrificed everything for, including joining the priesthood. Yoga instructor Margot Kowalski is over men. After yet another toxic relationship, she's eager to forget love and focus on growing her business. Doing the Hellions head coach a favor by helping out a troubled player can't hurt, and it might give her career a high-profile boost. But free-spirited Margot is soon charming the pants off Patch. Literally. Her sassy combination of sweet and sexy proves irresistible to the goalie. Before Patch can give into temptation though, he'll have to confess his biggest secret: He's a virgin. But Patch is hiding more than sexual inexperience, and his dark past soon threatens to destroy his shot at true love"--Page [4] of cover.
