In Panama City, Florida, two meth addicts mug cabby Holly Cramer and destroy her taxi.  Seeing this as a wakeup call, the former biker chick turned single mom raising her baby Lily plans to change her wilding ways.  Besides motherhood and taxi driver, Holly works as a private investigator alongside her sisters Cathy (see Truth Stained Lies) and Juliet (see Distortion).  She also conceals from everyone including her family the identity of her infant’s father and that Lily was conceived in a one-niter.

However, Lily’s dad Creed Kershaw arrives in Panama City wanting to be in the lives of his two females although Holly wants nothing to do with her past; especially with him after a visit from the Southport PD who has an interest in him as a murder suspect.  Creed insists to Holly that drug-king Leonard Miller framed him.  Although she and her sisters have a violent history with Miller, Holly disbelieves Creed.  Desperate to keep his women safe, Creed kidnaps Lily and Holly.

The third Moonlighter romantic suspense is an electrifying thriller that deftly combines second (and third) chances with an action-packed storyline and an anticipated clash that will not let the audience down.  As always in a Terri Blackstock novel, the key cast is fully developed with this storyline concentrating on the third sister’s redemption; that is if she lives long enough.
