WHAT SHE NEVER SAID

2019

How much would you pay to keep a secret? 

The 1% doesn’t do anything like the rest of us, including retire. But when the elderly guests of swanky Serenity Acres fall on hard times, they conveniently pass away. Could an Angel of Mercy—or an Angel of Greed—be behind the sudden deaths? A peek into a tony retirement community where the upscale residents will stop at nothing to have their secrets buried in a grave. 

 

WHAT SHE GAVE AWAY

2018

Choices have consequences. Revenge has a cost. 

Catharine Riggs' first work of psychological suspense features an outsider with a dark past and a bitter grudge who moves to a wealthy beach-side community only to find herself enmeshed in the secrets of her boss and his hapless wife. Spanning two years and told in the protagonists’ alternating voices, What She Gave Away reveals the power of choice, the price of revenge and the treachery of denial.​
