Betsy Jakes was having nightmares, nightmares that could solve a decades-old mystery. And for someone in her small town, that meant she had to die.
When Sam Jakes returns home to help his brother solve their mother's murder, two things shake him to the core. This crime is clearly the work of a serial killer who has struck twice before. And…Lainey Pickett is still in town. The woman he walked away from without an explanation years ago has just walked back into his life. She still holds a grudge—and his heart.
As Sam digs deeper into the murders and thirty-year-old secrets begin to emerge, he finds himself racing against time not only to catch a killer but to keep Lainey, the only woman he'll ever love, from falling victim, too.
Three people are dead and Trina, Trey's sister, is fighting for her life after being shot point blank. Trey calls his older brother Sam, who has been estranged from the family since facing a road side bomb in Iraq and being scarred. Sam immediately comes running home to help his brother find out who killed their mother and her classmates. They know that the killings stem from something that happened on graduation day, but not what happened that night.
Sam looks up Lainey, the girl he left behind. It's kind of a quick turn around from both of them being so mad and hurt about Sam not returning to them being happy go lucky back together again, but who cares, I love Ms Sala's work!
What was really great about this trilogy is that, I had absolutely NO IDEA who the killer was until Trina woke up! Wow! I was not expecting that! But what a GREAT ending to this series!
