Shining with intrigue, allure, and passionate suspense, Amethyst Dreams is Phyllis Whitney at her most spectacular--a story bejeweled with hypnotic prose and spellbinding secrets. . . .

For several years, time and circumstance have managed to separate Hallie Knight and her old friend Susan Trench. But when Susan disappears from her grandfather's seaside home on historic Topsail Island, it is Hallie whom Nicholas Trench calls for help. Wealthy, ill, and irascible, he refuses to believe that his beloved granddaughter and the heir to his fortune has been lost to him. He is certain that if anyone can find Susan, it will be her closest friend, the woman who knows her better than anyone else. When Hallie arrives from California, she find the old man surrounded by an odd collection of friends and relatives, all of whom seem to know a little more than they're willing to tell about Susan Trench and her last days on Topsail. As the threads intertwine, Hallie must confront painful questions that build toward what may be a fearful answer.

From the Back Cover:

"Phyllis A. Whitney is a national treasure . . . This mistress of enchantment is still weaving spells with words and entrancing her readers."
--SHARYN McCRUMB

"Phyllis A. Whitney is a superb and gifted storyteller, and a master of suspense."
--MARY HIGGINGS CLARK

"I was torn between wanting to get to the end of this beautiful novel because I had to know what happened and not wanting Amethyst Dreams to end because I was enjoying the place and the company so much."
--Anne Perry, author of Brunswick Gardens

"The bestselling author of romantic suspense has a magical way with words . . . . What matters here are the characters' wonderfully wrought temperaments--no sinners, no saints, but ultimately lots of forgiveness--and the subtle, little glimpses of fear that keep readers looking for answers right up to the satisfying conclusion."
--Library Journal

From the Inside Flap:

Shining with intrigue, allure, and passionate suspense, Amethyst Dreams is Phyllis Whitney at her most spectacular--a story bejeweled with hypnotic prose and spellbinding secrets. . . .

Seeking shelter from her own broken dreams, Hallie Knight answers a cryptic plea for help from Nicholas Trench, the grandfather of her dearest friend. Susan mysteriously disappeared from home one night off North Carolina's historical Topsail Island--and Hallie is Nick's last hope of finding her.

But surrounding Nick is a family as headstrong as they are suspicious--for at the heart of the matter is a vast inheritance. And as Hallie is lured deeper into a mystery nestled in a quagmire of bitterness, dark betrayal, and subtle menace, she becomes certain of one thing: this sunny, seaside paradise harbors dangerous and profoundly shattering secrets. . . .
