A new life on the horizon. An old flame at the door. When a dead body turns up in the freezer, one woman's island lifestyle turns stormy…
Katie Connell's new life in St. Marcos is cruising right along. She’s got a restaurateur boyfriend, a singing venture with her best friend, and a new streak of sobriety. Even better, she’s purchased a rainforest home that came complete with a centuries-old house ghost. With her legal career well behind her, she's hopeful her new chapter will lead her to happiness.
But when a man from her past enters the picture, a murder in her boyfriend's restaurant and a child in need throw everything into chaos. Forced to choose between the spirited house that saved her and a man who may just be the love of her life, Katie almost yearns for the simpler dramas she faced as a lawyer. Can she make the right choice without slipping back into the destructive ways of the past?
Leaving Annalise is a fast-paced romantic mystery. If you like strong women, whirlwind twists, and satisfying love stories, then you’ll love Pamela Fagan Hutchins’ tightly-woven mystery.

Exceeded my expectations.
As much as I loved Saving Grace, I love Leaving Annalise even more. It had me laughing one minute and holding my breath the next (again and again). I felt a kinship with Katie Connell and could totally see this book being made into a movie. Pamela Fagan Hutchins is a true wordsmith and talented story-teller. I'm ready for her next book already!

Great Continuation of the Katie's Story
I was really looking forward to hearing what happened in Katie's world and I knew there would be some curve balls. I wasn't disappointed. Enjoyable, easy read.
I knew a sequel was coming and was on pins and needles at the thought of having to wait for it. I wanted to know more about the jumbie house, whether the heroine gets the hero or not, and the flavors and sounds that come alive in this book about island living, murder and mayhem, with a side of suspense and psychotic behavior. What's not to love?
That being said, you should read Saving Grace (first book in the series) first because that is where you are introduced to the wonderful, and sometimes zany characters. That is important. You want to know these people - they could be you or your best friend or your irritating neighbors - except living on a beautiful island. I found Leaving Annalise a perfect second book in this series, even better than the first one, and I really liked the first one!
