Boxing Wendy, by Carol Walsh Greer
Stuart Richmond is so friendly, it's scary.

He certainly likes Wendy Jackson – likes her so much, in fact, that he'll sit at the counter for hours, nursing a cup of coffee, just to watch her wait tables. It's of no consequence that Wendy is rude and dismissive; Stuart forgives all, and it's only a matter of time and tenacity before he burrows his way into her life.

Others perceive Stuart as nothing more than an over-eager suitor, but Wendy's gut tells her they're gravely mistaken. Where friends and family see interest and devotion, Wendy recognizes obsession and fixation. She knows Stuart's hiding something: some evil deed, some dark secret.

Maybe even a secret as terrible as her own.
