Book Description

A 2014 Carolyn Readers Award Finalist!

Sam thought visiting Japan would give her closure on her husband's death. She was so wrong...

It has been a year since Samantha Stitsill became a widow. She is ready to start living again, but unanswered questions about her husband’s death plague her. Japan is where he worked and where he died, so that is where she will go. In the heartbreaking journey reliving his final days, Sam unwittingly finds herself hunted by a man she thought was dead, and loved by a man who is willing to put his life on the line for her.

This second novel of the Samantha Series delves into psychological terrors of being ambushed and the conflicting emotions of guilt and passion of a new love after the death of a spouse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! September 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I really wish I could give this book 10 Stars..
Intimacy Issues picks up about a year after Identity Issues ends.Identity Issues (The Samantha Series 1) Samantha is trying to move on from the loss of her husband. She still has so many unanswered questions. After receiving a disturbing phone call one evening she decides it's time to find out once and for all what happened that fateful night. She enlists the help of McGrath and off they go on a quest for answers. While looking for pieces to the puzzle Sam's life has turned into they find themselves in a whole lot of danger. Sam is left with the realization that while on her quest for answers she may have just orphaned her kids.
I love these books and the characters are so amazing and realistic.. I have many things in common with Sam and Di. Looking forward to the next installment in the series.. If you haven't read the series I highly recommend you start at the beginning with Identity Issues. So far there are 2 books in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great second book in series can't wait for third. December 1, 2013
By Kathy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can't wait for the next book in this series to. comes out. Even if I hadn't read Identity Issues, which I did, This book would have been very easy to follow . The author did a great job of summarizing the previous story and reintroducing the characters without boring the reader. I can't wait to see what else is in store for Samantha.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intimacy Issues June 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Captivating read even though a little farfetched. Amateur sleugh teacher bringing down professional hit man not once but twice is a little unrealistic. Did enjoy the story and would read. more by Claudia Whitsitt.

4.0 out of 5 stars SUSPENSEFUL READ December 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Suspenseful story with lots of twists and turns. I like the author's voice - quirky and humorous. Could connect with the main character as I have been a teacher for many years. Met Claudia on a plane this year and she encouraged me to write. Mary Banta

4.0 out of 5 stars better than the first November 28, 2013
By nrevvy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked this better than her first book, probably because the first one set up all the background. Some parts of the story were a little predictable, but a nice story.

5.0 out of 5 stars left me wholly satisfied July 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Picking up about a year after the previous book, Sam is plagued by questions relating to her husband's untimely death. Fearing that she and her family may still be in danger, Samantha decides to go to Japan in an effort to obtain the answers she seeks. Convincing McGrath to go with her is easy, he has waited almost a year giving Sam and her kids time to grieve and heal. Sam, too, is finally willing move on with her life, but first, she must make certain the danger she senses is eradicated.

In Japan, Sam and McGrath get more than they bargain for. Unexpected trouble leads to a deadly pursuit that prompts them both to use their wit and intelligence to outfox their foes. Just as exciting and well-written as the first book this one left me wholly satisfied.

This book was given to me by the author in exchange for my honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! Great book. June 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This second book in the Samantha series is just as good as the first one. Samantha is still grieving for her husband. She feels his death was not an accident and she is worried that she and her children are also in danger. She wants to know the answers to some tough questions. Japan is the place where she will find these answers. She talks police
detective and boyfriend, McGrath, into going with her. When their passports are stolen, they are unable to leave Japan and are then running for their lives. Samantha is determined her five children will not lose another parent. Read the book and enjoy the suspense for yourself.

I can't wait till the next one comes out. Note to author: please don't make it be too long!

More About the Author

Several years after her husband's passport was stolen, a woman contacted Claudia claiming they were married to the same man. How could this not inspire a novel? As a result of these real-life circumstances, The Samantha Series was born. Identity Issues, Intimacy Issues, and Internal Issues are the result.

Stay tuned. Claudia's spreading her wings. Her middle grades historical fiction, BETWEEN THE LINES, is coming in 2014 as well as the 4th installment in The Samantha Series!

When not writing or solving mysteries, Claudia enjoys wine-tasting, swimming, and spending time with family and friends.
