"The End of Temperance Dare"

Wendy Webb's novels include The Vanishing, The Fate of Mercy Alban, and The Tale of Halcyon Crane.

She applied the Page 69 Test to her new novel, The End of Temperance Dare, and reported the following:
On page 69 in The End of Temperance Dare, our main character, Norrie, the new director of Cliffside Manor, is sitting on the veranda in the wee hours of the morning looking at the night sky and chatting with Nate Davidson, a doctor who lives on the property. This is their first meeting, and it starts out a little spooky and suspenseful for Norrie — who is this strange man wandering around the property at night, and why haven’t I met him before? Am I in danger here? — and then turns tentatively friendly and even a little flirty. That describes the book beautifully. It’s the scariest and most suspenseful book I’ve ever written, but there are sweet and flirty elements to it, too, many of them involving Nate and Norrie.
