Living in a town with an angry neighbor.

Finding Lara released today and I’ve been excited to bring you this story. Tate Vickers is the son of Gaige and Sophie Vickers (Defending Sophie). He’s served in the military and he’s been working for GHOST. It’s now his turn to run a crew in a satellite location. So, Tate and his friends, all off-spring of GHOST team members, set off to Glen Hollow Kentucky.

They’re each excited to start a new division of GHOST and looking forward to this new challenge. As they drive into town, the challenge is established as they are shot at and Tate’s brand new pick up truck is hit with bullets. Challenge accepted.

The simmering upheaval between the townsfolk in Glen Hollow and their angry neighbor in the mountain is reaching a boiling point and there are many reasons why. Tate and company have to figure out the reasons and still keep the building of the new military base, Fort Abraham, on schedule. That, however is much harder than it appears. But, Tate is up for the challenge.

Lara Bennit, is a small town bakery owner and she’s immersed in this drama against her wishes. She’s done nothing wrong, but one of her family members has and she’s paying the price. Tate loves cookies but he ends up loving the baker more!

This story was fun to write and just typing out this blog post brings that excitement once again.

USAT author PJ Fiala, brings you the next generation of GHOST operatives set in the small-town of Glen Hollow, Kentucky, where a long-standing rivalry is brewing into an all out war, and love comes calling even in the worst of times.

GHOST: Government Hidden Ops Specialty Team. They eliminate the threat when no one else can.

He’s a GHOST operative tasked with the impossible.
She’s a small town baker with the perfect blend of sweet and sass.
When Lara’s abducted, Tate stops at nothing to get her back.

For Tate Vickers, becoming a GHOST operative was inevitable. Being raised by GHOST operatives, he and his coworkers played rescue games as children. When he’s tasked to run the elite group’s satellite location in Kentucky, he jumps at the chance and brings his friends along. But Glen Hollow, Kentucky isn’t what it seems. There’s a dark secret living in the hills and a war is about to erupt.

Lara Bennit grew up baking in her friend’s kitchen. Now she bakes on her own and makes a respectable living doing what she loves. When local criminals repeatedly break into her bakery and steal ingredients, her frustration escalates. Then Tate walks into her small-town-shop, and his presence is as comforting as the cinnamon rolls she just added to the bakery case. Maybe everything will be okay after all.

Or, maybe her real problems are just beginning. And Tate is tasked with the ultimate job…
