Alexa Lee Smith certainly didn’t come back for him.
That’s what the flight attendant tells herself as she travels back to her sleepy hometown of Cypress Lake, Florida, for a high school reunion. She knows that Rick Young, her former flame and first true love, isn’t waiting for her. He’s moved on with a gorgeous wife and adorable daughter.
But has she?
As Alexa is for forced to confront feelings she would rather stay hidden, her and Rick’s high school reunion is marred by disaster—Rick’s beautiful wife, Kim, is dead, and no one knows who to trust.
Alexa finds herself drawn into the mystery surrounding Kim’s death, but each new lead drags her into danger. The people she knew in high school have grown into strangers she can barely recognize, and every single one of them has a secret to hide.
Suddenly, Alexa’s sleepy small town is waking up. And everyone’s got eyes on her.
“The small town Florida setting provided the perfect backdrop for the various characters to tell story. I especially liked the ‘who-done-it’ elements that totally caught me by surprise.”
