Barbara is working on the manuscript for her next novel, Making Up. As soon as she’s finished, publishers will pick a release date, which most likely will be sometime in the summer of 2018. Please join Barbara’s mailing list for news updates and watch for posts on her Barbara’s blog, on Facebook, and on Instagram. Here’s a hint of what’s to come:
Things are not what they seem …
Maggie Reid is more than a makeup artist, Ned Cooper more than an Innkeeper, and that upscale resort town in Vermont so simply named Devon? It harbors others who are fleeing the past. But when a teenage hacker commits one crime too many, and the town is besieged by Federal investigators and the press, all bets for hiding are off.
For Maggie, the attention is particularly terrifying. Having suffered in the spotlight’s glare once, she desperately needs anonymity. Her self-esteem is finally on the mend after a painful stretch without. Now that she is reinvented, she is starting to like herself again.
But who is the woman behind the new name, the careful makeup, the fresh job and adopted state? Exposed by this new scandal, she is forced to confront the past. And if she runs again? What happens then?
Her entire future is at stake – not only her career, her physical freedom, and her home in Devon, but her relationships with the brother who was too frightened to stand by her before, with the mother who chose to turn away to survive, and with the only man she has ever truly loved.
