Years and distance kept the memories at bay. But back at home, the past is ready and waiting to haunt her…
Eighteen years have passed since Joy’s childhood best friend, Jenny, met her death in a tragic car accident just a few days after their senior prom. A broken Joy left their small Kentucky hometown shortly after – determined never to come back. But when her father’s illness forces her to return, she realizes that neither time nor distance have truly healed her troubled soul.
Plagued with nightmares of the accident and crippled by a vague fear whose source she can’t identify, Joy realizes that in order to move on she must face the truth behind several disturbing gaps in her memory of that fateful spring. But the only person who can help her is a man she despises – Jenny’s erstwhile boyfriend Jeff, now a respected doctor, whose carelessness as a teenager was the cause of Jenny’s horrendous death – and Joy’s own emotional destruction. Can she ever forgive? She may have no choice but to try. Because both the danger she sensed – and the childhood friendship she treasured – now suddenly seem very much alive…
This book was actually posted in The Book Club as it was currently free on Amazon for the kindle.
The story see’s Joy moving back to her roots years after an accident that killed her best friend Jenny. Joy buy’s the house that Jenny and her family used to live in and a lot of strange incidents start to occur. The storyline has a mystery/suspense feel about it and even though the few twists towards the end didn’t knock my socks off I still enjoyed the book.
The relationship between Joy and Jeff is enjoyable to read and they are both likeable characters that you soon start to care about.
If you like a book with suspense/mystery but on a slower scale I think you will enjoy this book, certainly made a nice change to all the fast paced thrillers I’ve read lately. Will certainly keep my eye out for more by this author.
This book is currently still free to download on Amazon.
I have awarded this book 4/5 stars.
