That's the title of my March Love Inspired Suspense on the shelves right now, but truthfully you could take the title of this blog two different ways. One you could say don't let the past rule your present and future in your life. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in what we have done that we don't look toward what we can do. We let past mistakes hamper what we do. In Don't Look Back this happens to my hero who has allowed his guilt to interfere in really living. Jameson King has shut himself off from the delights of what it means to be alive. Cassie Winters gets under his skin and forces him to reassess his life--not an easy task for anyone.
Whereas for Cassie, she needs to look back into the past to find answers to what happened to her brother. The past is where she can learn the truth of his murder. However, the journey isn't a pleasant one and it stirs up a lot of buried secrets, putting hers and Jameson's lives in danger.
Romantic Times' reviewer, Robin Taylor, has this to say about Don't Look Back: "Ten years ago, college student Cassie Winters had a crush on one of her professors. Now Cassie and Dr. Jameson King are embroiled in the search for her brother's killer. Time spend together cements a bone-deep connection in Margaret Daley's Don't Look Back. This murder mystery is tensely written, especially with Jameson's past clouding
his present--and quite possibly his future."

So have you ever had moments when you HAD to look back to come up with a solution to a present problem? Or, have you ever HAD to forget the past in order to move on in your life?
