Sarah has never been so certain of anything. So when Eddie leaves for a long-booked vacation and promises to call from the airport, she has no cause to doubt him. But he doesn't call. Sarah's friends tell her to forget about him, but she can't. She knows something's happened - there must be an explanation.

This storyline was just ok. Repeats a lot of the same emotional explains and drags on in places. Not sure I I will continue the series. More likely to if another narrator is used. This one had a bit of a lisp and was not easy listening. Distracted from the story.

The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....
