AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In Love with a Murderer? ‘To help out old friends, Dr. Jacqueline Freeman agrees to take over a small practice in the Australian town of Willowbank for one year. Outwardly, conditions are pleasant enough, but Jackie soon finds out that the townspeople have far from forgotten the unsolved murder, which happened one year before, of the beautiful wife of one Carl Shader. The young doctor is unwittingly drawn into the mystery, partly from a natural curiosity to know the truth and partly because of an immediate attraction to Carl Shrader – the man everyone believes to be the killer.’ (Publisher’s blurb)
