Product Description

The sheets were damp and cold as she climbed into bed, and as she lay shivering, she ached with loneliness. . . . Cassie lay listening to the creaking timbers of the old hotel, and tears slid down her face.

It doesn't matter what answers I find, she thought. Nothing will ever be the same.

It was in that twilight between wakefulness and sleep that she wondered how she could find any answers when she didn't even know the questions.

* * *

Cassie Van Cleeve is thirty-two years old, single, and comfortably settled into a demanding career that leaves little time for romance. Suddenly faced with two unexpected proposals of marriage, she finds herself caught in a whirlwind of emotions with a vital choice to make. Her decision takes Cassie on an adventure she could never have imagined as she seeks to solve a deadly puzzle and uncover the mysterious past of her new husband.

Author Liz Adair has shown herself to be a wonderful storyteller, and in The Mist of Quarry Harbor, she has crafted another fast-paced novel that will satisfy even the most avid mystery lovers. Set in the starkly beautiful Sonora Desert and the picturesque islands and waterways of Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest, this romantic novel provides a visual as well as an emotional feast. It is a book whose intriguing characters, startling plot, and exciting scenes will stay with you long after you have closed the book.

About the Author

Liz Adair

A native of New Mexico and mother of seven, Liz Adair lives in northwest Washington with Derrill, her husband of 47 years. A late bloomer, Liz published her first Spider Latham Mystery just as AARP started sending invitations to join. After writing three books in the Spider Latham series, Liz moved into romantic suspense with The Mist of Quarry Harbor.

Liz took a break from suspense to write Counting the Cost, a novel based on family history. The book won the 2009 Whitney Award and was a finalist for the Willa Award and the Arizona Publisher Association’s Glyph Award.

Liz is back writing romantic suspense with Cold River and feels that’s where she belongs. “I remember when I was a young mother with all those kids and a slender budget,” she says. “I was so grateful for books that let me go places and meet people who carried on adult conversations. That’s what I want to write—cheap vacations.”

Heeding advice given to writers not to quit their day jobs, Liz works as a forensic scheduler on schedule delay analyses. She also serves on LDStorymakers’ board of directors, is a member of American Night Writers Association, and chairs the annual Northwest Writers Retreat. Visit her blog at

I think I spent the whole book hoping that my initial instincts were incorrect. Liz weaves a tale of startling truths into a fictional story that keeps the reader turning the pages.

Loved it!

I have to admit that I didn't know there was an LDS genre for romance and mystery until I joined the TOFW book club! Just always purchased inspirational volumes at my local Deseret store. This book was a great read. I enjoyed the fast pace and didn't want to put it down until the mystery was solved. The author was great at giving sublte hints along the way that really had you thinking in a few different directions. Overall a fun and satisfying read. I'll definitely check out her previous books.

Liz Adairs best book yet!!

My husband and I have read all of Liz Adair's books so far, but I think this one, The Mist of Quarry Harbor, is my favorite. I love the main charactor and the mysteries that she unravels about her late husband. I especially like the part in the Pacific Northwest, which is where we live. I could see Roche Harbor when she described Quarry Harbor. Her description of when Cassie is stranded in a boat in the middle of a bay during a storm was so vivid and I wondered how Liz knew so much about boating. Anyway my husband, Ross, and I loved the book.
