Will one town’s secret set one woman free?

Lauryn McBride sacrificed her own life for her father after her mother’s death and later his struggle with Alzheimer’s.  Taking own the responsibilities of the auction business her father owned and caring for her father are full time responsibilities.  Six months earlier, brutal murders set a course for the town and the only resolution is to solve the centuries old mystery of Abbey Hills and its strange history of vampires.

Amede Dastillon is searching for her sister and visits the town of Abbey Hills.  When the murders start again, she becomes a suspect because she is a vampire.

As the town’s secrets begin to unravel, Lauryn finds herself caught up in the midst of trouble as she struggles to take care of her personal life and her business even as she becomes embroiled in danger.  To prove her innocence, Amede must reveal family secrets.  Both Lauryn and Amede come to realize that living your life for someone else is a waste.

 Tracey Bateman’s “Tandem” not only holds you spellbound and keeps the pages turning it is also a spiritual lesson for those who put other priorities before God.  Taking matters into your own hands or trying to live under your own strength is both exhausting and futile.
