Strangers are a rare commodity in Bisby, a small town fading away in a quiet corner of North Carolina. Liz Corman runs the town’s diner while her husband Billy tends to the auto shop next door.

After discovering someone placed a hit on him, she decides to help him recuperate in Lincolnville, Georgia. Can she rebuild the trust lost before a killer ends their reunion for good?

And Now….for Kathryn’s Five on Friday Questions.
If you could choose your last meal, and you weren’t in prison, what would it be?
Have to be chili cheese fries from Mudville Grille on Beach Blvd. in Jacksonville. They are the best in the city.
If there was one person, real, fiction or fantasy, you could spend time with, who would it be and why?
Harlan Coban. He does the best twists in his books. I’ll think I figured out who the bad guy is and by the end of the chapter, this same person has been killed. His books definitely keep me reading. I’d love to pick his brain.
What is one of your favorite quotes?
There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.- Alfred Hitchcock. I try to write my diehard suspense stories like The Visitor with this quote in mind.
If you could be a character from one of your books, who would it be and why?
I’d love to have KT Morgan’s bravery. She doesn’t let anything stop her, yet she has brains enough to know to call the police before she walks into a desperate situation.
Your four fantasy guests for a dinner party…living or dead.
Jesus Christ, God, Madalyn Murray O’Hair who was the person who brought Atheism to light in this country and was later murdered along with her son and granddaughter by a coworker, and William Joseph Simmons who was the head of the KKK back in the early 1920’s. Imagine the conversation at this table. How would Madalyn feel about sitting next to Jesus Christ, the person she claimed didn’t exist, and how would William explain to God how he hated a color that God chose for someone’s skin. Definitely be an interesting evening.
