The New Friend by SL Harker
You saved her life. You gave her a home. You know nothing about her…
Divorcee Claire is learning to begin again after discovering her ex-husband’s affair. The last thing she expects to find is a young woman precariously balanced on the edge of a bridge. Vanessa is homeless and desperate, lacking options in her life. Claire takes Vanessa under her wing, saving her from the icy-cold waters of the churning river below.
Vanessa is grateful to Claire, especially when she offers her a room in her empty beach house in a quaint coastal town.
The two women find they have a lot in common and enjoy each other’s company immensely. Vanessa finds a job in the local town, and Claire takes up sketching again.
But their harmony is short-lived. When a brick comes crashing through a window, Claire must confront Vanessa about her past.
Did this sweet young girl bring someone dark into Claire’s life? And what if Vanessa has a hidden agenda?
