Bloody Dagger Award Winner


Following the breakup of her marriage, Rachael retreats to the old beachhouse in Jenny’s Cove, where she once lived with her grandmother. It is the one place where she had always felt safe and loved. Devasted and lost, Rachael longs for the simplicity of her childhood.

But Jenny’s Cove has changed. From the moment of Rachael’s arrival, a man watches. He has already killed, and mercilessly will do so again. Soon Rachael becomes a target for a vicious predator whose own dark and twisted past forms a deadly bond between them.

And sets her on a collision course with a crazed killer.

One Reviewer Notes

“CHILL WATERS is a tightly written suspense by a supremely talented writer who brings her readers into intimate contact with a whirlwind story. Hovey’s sense of place is outstanding, her characters live and breathe (right next to you!) and the suspense/action is phenomenal. I’m hooked, and plan to purchase more books by this writer. Kudos, to Joan  Hovey.” – Amazon Reviewer, 5 Stars

    Comparing an author/book to Stephen King is the kiss of death! No one writes like King, except King himself. If I see this comparison on a book’s description, I automatically take a pass.

    From the book description I read I don’t immediately think “female Stephen King” at all. I think more of a crime mystery writer author type is more appropriate. Stephen King to me has always come across to me as a science fiction with a little horror thrown in kind of author. I guess what I am saying is I have read a lot of King and he doesn’t just do crime mysteries.
