Publisher's Summary

A gripping new novel from New York Times best-selling suspense author Terri Blackstock.

One father was murdered. Another was convicted of his death. All because their children fell in love.

Nate Beckett has spent his life fighting wildfires instead of the lies and rumors that drove him from his Colorado hometown. His mother begs him to come back now that his father has been released from prison, but it isn’t until he’s sidelined by an injury that he’s forced to return and face his past. But that means facing Brenna, too.

Fourteen years ago, Nate was in love with the preacher’s daughter. When Pastor Strickland discovered Brenna defied him to sneak out with Nate, the fight between Strickland and Nate’s drunken dad was loud - and very public. Strickland was found murdered later that night, and everyone accused Roy Beckett. When the church burned down not long after, people assumed Nate set the fire to get even for his father’s conviction. He let the rumors fly and left town without looking back.

Brenna is stunned to learn that the man convicted of murdering her father has been pardoned. The events of that night set her life on a bad course, and now she’s fighting a brutal custody battle with her ex and his new wife where he’s using lies and his family’s money to sway the judge. Brenna is barely hanging on, and she’s turned to alcohol to cope. Shame and fear consume her.

As Nate and Brenna deal with the present - including new information about that fateful night and a wildfire that’s threatening their town - the past keeps igniting. Nate is the steady force Brenna has so desperately needed. But she’ll have to learn to trust him again first.

Praise for Smoke Screen:

"Full of secrets, lies, and with a visceral impact that grabs from the first sentence, Smoke Screen is Terri Blackstock at her finest." (Colleen Coble, USA Today best-selling author)

"Terri never fails to deliver a plot that moves, well-developed characters who are real, flawed, and relatable.... Just a word of warning if you decide to pick up this book - don’t plan to do anything else until you finish it." (Lynette Eason, best-selling, award-winning author)

As Always

Terri Blackstock's books never disappoint. I have read all her books & they are awesome. Looks like I need to reread some of her earlier ones until another one is out.
