Can love overcome opioid addiction?

Cover of THE UTTER CATASTROPHE by Sandra Hutchison

In this third Lawson novel, Megan Cantwell comes home from college to find her parents’ farm in disarray. But that’s just the beginning of the challenges she’ll face, especially when that preacher’s son she used to crush on needs help coping with his two young daughters and his heroin addiction.

Meanwhile, new Chief of Police Winslow Jennings faces an epidemic that’s costing lives shockingly close to home, and Mary must cope with a reappearance of the one person in her life she never wanted to see or hear from again.

THE UTTER CATASTROPHE explores the tension between helping addicts and enabling them, as well as the delicate dance of loving again after great loss.
