Almost every business named in the novel is fictional. However, I have happy memories of visiting Sasso’s, in Eagle; and the Nite Cap Inn, in Palmyra, and so included them. To the proprietors: Thanks for the hospitality, way back when.

Many people helped make this book possible. Thanks to all of my OWW friends, then and now; to the Writer Chicks, for a decade of friendship and insight; and to Katie Mead and Robert Alexander, for giving me a place to write.

Huge thanks to Chief Russ Ehlers and members of the Eagle Police Department for their patience, assistance, and encouragement. I’m in awe of what you do every day.

I’m grateful to my agent, Andrea Cascardi, and to the entire Midnight Ink team, for believing in this project.

I might not be a writer today if my parents hadn’t known that books are as important as food, and if my sisters hadn’t shared their favorites over the years. And I couldn’t make this work without the love and support of my husband, Scott Meeker—videographer, book hauler, proofreader, and all-around partner.
