THE STORM SHALL PASS:  Veterinarian Megan McBride's violent childhood haunts her. She secretly steals abused dogs, perhaps as a way to heal herself. She gladly puts her life in danger to help the helpless. But to her horror, the abusive dog owners start turning up dead. Even worse, she's the prime suspect. Megan fears the killer is someone close to her. Suspects include her staff and even Sam, her new boyfriend. But what she doesn't realize is—the killer is even closer.
