How many secrets can remain hidden in plain sight? Maggie McCabe is about to find out. After twelve years she’s back in Holiday Lake, Texas intent on fixing up her family’s old lakefront cabin and selling it for a big profit. Real estate prices in the picturesque town have skyrocketed and Maggie is tired of paying the rising property taxes on an old cabin full of painful memories. After inspecting the long-neglected cabin, Maggie realizes that what she really needs is a good contractor. Of course, the only one in town happens to be Jack Miller, her first and only love who broke her fragile heart when she was just a teenager. In addition to the cabin and Jack Miller, Holiday Lake holds one more thing Maggie would rather forget about - the New Hope Fellowship church, where her father was murdered twelve years before. His murder set in motion a devastating chain of events that lead to Maggie’s mother’s suicide, and Maggie being sent to live with her uptight aunt who forbade her from contacting Jack. Maggie’s sudden return to Holiday Lake and her long hours working on the cabin with Jack not only ignite long-dormant passions between the two lovers, but also threaten Jack’s engagement and forthcoming wedding. The potential sale of the old McCabe cabin also draws the interest of a shadowy stranger with a grisly secret. First loves, rekindled passions, murder, suicide, and long-buried secrets all twist their way into the lives of Maggie McCabe, Jack Miller, and the other residents of Holiday Lake in this romantic thriller. Holiday Lake is the first in a series of four novels that follow the lives and loves of the venerable Miller family of Holiday Lake, Texas.
