Some lies never stay buried....
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 30-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.

Another AWESOME book by Sharon Sala!
This book has 2 plots - #1 is the ongoing plot from books 1 and 2 - who killed 3 friends from the graduation class of 1980 and why. #2- the story of Sam Jakes and Lainey Pickett
Plot 1- Besty Jakes and 4 of her friends saw something the night of their graduation. On their way to report it, they had a car accident which killed the driver. The survivors were all injured and had lost their memories of that night. In the previous books Betsy's memories start to come back as the 2 other survivors of the accident were murdered. This book starts out with Betsy's murder. This story had so many twists and turns, it kept me on the edge of my seat! The murderer is revealed and I admit it surprised me who it was. I won't say more as I don't want to give anything away.
Plot 2 - Sam Jakes has been estranged from his family (His choice) for the past 10 years ever since he came home wounded from war. When he finds out about his mother's murder he decides to come home and help his brother find out who murdered her and why. Both Sam and Lainey are dealing with things that happened in their lives (Sam- war injuries, Lainey - recovering from breast cancer treatment). Their story is an emotional one and shows that love can conquer all.
A very moving and great experience.
As usual Sharon Sala does not fail to deliver. Her portrayal of some aspect of PTSD was spot on.
A great love story made all the more endearing as the second chance of love also unfold.
