Suspense fans will love her Off the Grid: In the past seven years, Barbara has sold over 7. Smoke poured from the kitchen window of the old Victorian as he jumped out of his car and ran up the walkway.
His daughter’s favorite teddy bear lay abandoned on the top step. Cups from a tea party were scattered across the welcome home mat as if the participants had left in a big hurry, as if they had smelled smoke and run inside to see what was wrong.
Michael’s heart raced as he reached for the door knob. He fumbled with his keys, swearing, sweating each second of delay. His children were inside. He had to get to them. The keys slipped out of his grasp and fell to the ground.
Just A Wish Away
He stepped back ward, crushing a tiny pink teacup. To hell with the keys. Panicked, he slammed his body against the door, forcing it open. All he could think of were Lily and Rose, his six year-old identical twin daughters. If anything happened to them, he would never forgive himself. They were all he had left. Smoke drifted through the hall and dining room, darkening the white walls, covering the hardwood floors with dust. Michael swept them into his arms, pressing their heads against his chest for one thankful second.
You’re all right,” he muttered. Two firemen passed him on the steps. Then he set the girls down on the pavement and tried to catch his breath. Lily and Rose stared back at him. They didn’t appear to be hurt.
Nor did they seem overly concerned about the fire. In fact, on closer inspection there was a light of excitement in Lily’s dark eyes, and Rose looked guilty, so guilty that her gaze seemed fixed on the untied laces of her tennis shoes.
At that, Michael’s panic began barnara fade. He squatted in front of them so he could look directly into their eyes. Their long brown hair was a mess.
Lily’s pigtails were almost completely out. Rose still had one rubber band clinging desperately to a couple of strands of hair, while the rest swung free past her shoulders. There were no bumps or bruises on their small faces, no scratches to mar their tender skin, no sign of blood.
Lily shook her head, then Rose. Neither one said a word. Not even in the midst of a crisis would they speak to him. Michael sighed, feeling the tear in his heart grow bigger. Since their mother, Angela, had died almost a year ago, the girls had refused to speak to him. No one had been able to tell him why. Thousands of dollars of family therapy had not helped him get to the root of their problem.
The doctors said the children, for whatever reason, didn’t trust him. They were supposed to trust him. He was their father, their protector. He would die for them, but he couldn’t seem to convince them of that fact.

Michael straightened as their nanny, Eleanor Polking, freeethy down the steps, assisted by one of the fire men. Eleanor was a short, robust woman in her late fifties who carried an extra forty pounds. That’s what happened,” Eleanor said in obvious distress. She tried to push her hair away from her eyes, but the sweat from her forehead glued it in place.
There was a wild light in her eyes. She looked as if she wanted to run as far away from them as possible, if she could just figure out an escape route. Michael had seen that expression before, on the faces of the four nannies who had previously served time in his home.
He glanced at Lily, then at Rose. They wouldn’t look him in the eye. Polking,” Lily said defiantly, directing her explanation to the nanny. We didn’t mean to cause a fire–” Rose darted a quick look at her father. When the pot got all red and smelled funny, we threw it in the trash. Did marxvilloso burn them? Their pudgy little fingers were covered with streaks of red and green paint, but thankfully there were no burns.
I’m leaving just as soon vreethy I get my suit case packed. Come on, Rose, let’s look at the fire engine. I know the girls are difficult, but they just need a little extra attention. At least give me a week or two to make other arrangements. Ashton,” Eleanor said, not sounding a bit sorry. I’m only one person. Polking softened just a bit. That’s why I took the liberty of making you a list of summer school programs. You’ll find it on the credenza in the dining room. Perhaps they’ll do better in a more structured environment.
If you hurry you may be able to find one for Monday. Good luck,” she said, turning away. Since when had he ever had good luck? See All Customer Reviews.
