A teen without a family. A town with a dark history. A body in the lake.

Abandoned by her own parents, forgotten by the foster care system, Bailey’s learned to weather every storm—except the one that rages inside. Is a family of her own too much to ask for? Her only anchor is Tommy, captain of the famous Lake Geneva Mailboat for the past fifty years, as reliable as the mail itself.

Delivering letters by boat in the Wisconsin resort town, Bailey’s learned that the occasional splash into the lake as she jumps to the piers is just part of her job. But discovering a dead body tied to a pier post is far from routine…

Bailey’s fears only grow when the police investigation spills over into her abusive foster home—threatening to take her away from Lake Geneva entirely. When it comes to the surface that Tommy has close ties to the chief suspect, his wounds from the past threaten to close him off from Bailey completely, snuffing out her last beacon of hope.

Will the mystery of the body in the lake be solved before a killer destroys Bailey’s last chance at finding a family? Or will a madman’s sinister plot leave her marooned forever?

The End of the Pier is the first book in the thrilling Mailboat Suspense Series. If you like twists that leave you breathless, complex characters you can’t help but love, and a real-life setting that comes to life on the page, then you’ll love Danielle Lincoln Hanna’s enthralling tale!

    Can I purchase the books in stores?

      Hi, Linda! Yes, you can, if you’re in the Lake Geneva area. Here are some stores that carry the Mailboat Suspense Series:

      Cornerstone Shop (Lake Geneva)
      Breadloaf Books (Lake Geneva)
      Geneva Gifts (Lake Geneva)
      The Coffee Mill (Fontana)

      Let me know if there’s anything else I can do to help you!

    You write well, but not my kind of story. I felt like it was jumping around and leaving you hanging at the end of each chapter. Sorry. Maybe that’s how stories are written in today’s world. Good luck.

  3. Sharon Bown

    Oh yes! This is the type of book I enjoy reading…when I come to the end of a chapter and want to yell at the author, ‘are you crazy, this can’t stop here’ because I have to go do something else or in this case it was the dangling carrot and that’s all I was given to purchase the book. I probably will at some point do just that.

  4. Patricia Gregorowicz

    Easy read. Got to the end and was left dangling. I enjoy reading mysteries. On to the next book in the series. 😃

  5. Nancy Clough

    Really liked the suspense in the hometown of Lake Geneva. Those carefree days unfortunately have gone by. I cant wait for book 5!

  6. Jill

    Although the book looked interesting there were too many hoops to jump through to download it. So I’ve never gotten the chance to read it.

  7. Karla

    This book is well written. The characters and the descriptions are rich. The problem? Its bait. Oh, you thought you were reading a complete story? Surprise! You’ll have to tune in to in to the next installment. I would have given this a resounding five stars and glowing review had it actually concluded. Instead, I’m annoyed. I got all the answers I needed without pursuing the real killer. I stopped reading Anne Rice and Diana Gabaldon for the same reason. I prefer a conclusion to the stories I read.

  8. Chris

    Wowowowowow! I really enjoyed this! I like the break up of different perspectives. Great detailing and perfect pace. You made the setting so idyllic, that next time I drive up north I will make it a point to stop in Lake Geneva and take a ride on the mailboat. And yes, I’ll be purchasing the sequels.
