âCRUEL INTENTIONSâ by Scarlett York
For fans of Pretty Little Liarsâ¦Itâs hard to be a rhinestone in a diamond world...I was far from living the dream, but now I'm stuck in a nightmare of lies, deceit....and murder. Merry Christmas to me.
âSOMEONEâS AT THE DOOR,â Brent said. âIâd get it, butâ¦Iâm a little tied up here.â
Ken Holbrook lifted his head. They were working in the area off the kitchen, which was
next to the living room, but he hadnât heard anything. âI donât think so.â
âYou might want to check. Maybe Mom and Gabe came up, even though we told them to let
us get the cabin out of mothballs first.â
âNo, they had other plans.â If anyone was at the door, it was more likely their real father.
Since Ken had returned to Dundee, Russ had been dogging his every step, doing his damnedest
to talk him into yet another loan, which he called âan infusion of working capital,â for whatever
business he was starting next. âNo oneâs here,â Ken said, hoping it was true. âThereâs a storm
Scooting over to get to his toolbox, Brent dug around blind since he was lying on his back
and still had his head partway inside the furnace. He retrieved his wrench, then froze at the sound
of a light tap. âThere it is again. Iâm pretty sure thatâs a knock.â
This time Ken heard it, too. Had Brent invited Russ to the cabin? Itâd be like him. Brent
didnât feel the same resentment toward their father that Ken did. Heâd been in elementary school
when Russ was busy screwing up their lives, which had somehow imbued him with more
forgiveness. But Ken didnât ask Brent, didnât want to talk about Russ, because he knew it would
lead to an argument. Russ was the only thing they ever argued about.
With the wind kicking up, Ken still held out hope that it wasnât a visitor, especially their
father. âIâll see whatâs going on. Just get the damn furnace fixed.â
Leaving the cardboard box heâd been unpacking, Ken strode into the living room and peered
through the peephole Gabe had drilled in the front door when their mother married him and they
came to stay in this cabin that first summer. They didnât have any heat, so Ken didnât plan on
opening it if he didnât have to. It was already cold enough to see his breath. But the moment he
saw a petite woman with long dark hair standing on the porch without a hat, boots or much of a
coat, he yanked the door wideâand gaped at the zip-up sweatshirt she wore with blue jeans and
snow-covered tennis shoes.
They had a visitor, all right. But it wasnât their fatherâ¦.
Angling his head, he scanned the drive for a vehicle.
Other than his own Land Rover, which heâd parked outside because there wasnât room in the
garage, he couldnât see one. How had she gotten so far into the mountains without a car, and
dressed like that? âCan I help you?â he said uncertainly.
Chocolate-dark eyes, framed with the longest lashes heâd ever seen, appealed to him from a
cafÃ© au lait face. She was somewhere in her mid-twenties, and she was pretty. Really pretty. It
was like finding Salma Hayek on his doorstep. But he was fairly confident the lack of color in
her lips wasnât a good thing.
âIâIâm Cierra,â she said, rolling the râs, and reached out to give him a piece of paper thatâd
been crushed in one hand. Before he could accept it, however, she swayed and wouldâve fallen
had he not let it go and caught her instead.
