Finding Casey: A Novel
Glory Vigil, newly married, unexpectedly pregnant at forty-one, is nesting in the home she and her husband, Joseph, have just moved to in Santa Fe, a house that unbeknownst to them is rumored to have a resident ghost. Their adopted daughter, Juniper, is home from college for Thanksgiving and in love for the very first time, quickly learning how a relationship changes everything. But Juniper has a tiny arrow lodged in her heart, a leftover shard from the day eight years earlier when her sister, Casey, disappeared-in a time before she'd ever met Glory and Joseph. When a fieldwork course takes Juniper to a pueblo only a few hours away, she finds herself right back in the past she thought she'd finally buried.
A love story, a family story, a story of searching and the bond between sisters, Finding Casey is a testament to human resilience. This completely stand-alone novel, featuring beloved characters from Solomon's Oak , will charm Mapson's readers and move her into a larger sphere.

There's something about this man that makes her uneasy, and when she buys a clay pot from one of the artists he represents, she has no idea the purchase will lead her somewhere she can't imagine.
Once in despair over the loss of his best friend and the back injury that forced him into retirement, former detective Joseph Vigil is a changed man since his marriage to Glory. It's Glory's birthday but his visit to a farm to buy her a gift turns out to be step one in an investigation he never expected to make, one that makes him long to return to his work in the police crime lab.
