About the Author
Beth Carpenter is thankful for good books, a good dog, a good man and a dream job creating happily-ever-afters. She and her husband now split their time between Alaska and Arizona, where she occasionally encounters a moose in the yard or a scorpion in the basement. She prefers the moose.
Tomorrow night was the math department’s annual Christmas party, and Natalie could enjoy it with a clear conscience once she’d tailed Rockford home and reported back to Brooke. Everything was falling into place.
Her phone showed two bars. She got off a quick email confirming her hotel reservation and glanced over at Rockford. He was stashing his laptop in his satchel. Probably planning to stretch his legs. She could use a stroll, too, but following him up and down the train would be a little too obvious.
He pulled his coat down from the overhead shelf and put it on. Hmm. Maybe he was changing cars for some reason. She supposed it didn’t really matter. He’d have to claim his luggage in Anchorage, so he couldn’t get away before she did. He came to her seat and touched her shoulder. “Goodbye, Natalie. I hope you enjoy your new job.” Without waiting for a reply, he walked down the aisle toward the rear of the train.
Wait. Why was he telling her goodbye? They still had several hours before they arrived in Anchorage. What was he up to?
They’d come to a sort of village now, or at least a cluster of cabins near the tracks. The voice on the PA system was saying something about dry cabins and flag stops.
In the book she was reading, the protagonist had lost a tail by jumping off a subway car just before the doors closed and taking another train to a different destination. Could Rockford be planning the same? But if so, why would he tell her goodbye?
To gloat! The same reason he’d asked her to lunch. He knew she was following him, and he’d made up that whole story about writing books to throw her off the trail. Now he was going to leave the train early, no doubt catching a later one. Well, she hadn’t lost him yet.
