"Her husband's tragic death forces Ellen Richmond to cope with matters she'd never had to deal with. And things are even worse than she'd feared. Harry went sailing alone and his yacht mysteriously vanished. Could it have sunk by accident? His business was in bad shape: the police imply that he might have committed suicide. She has to keep such harmful speculation from the children, Katie and Josh. She has to ward off Harry's bossy and disapproving sister, who seems to blame her, and to cope with the attentions of his former partner, who fancies himself irresistible. But above all, she has to deflect the interest of a man who introduces himself at the funeral and claims to have known her husband from the Falklands campaign. Because now Ellen's learning Harry's secrets, secrets that may have led to his death. But only one person knows if it was accident, suicide or murder."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
