Tory Bodeen grew up in South Carolina, in a
small run-down house, where her father ruled with an iron fist and a leather
belt, and where her dreams and talents had no room to flourish. But she had
Hope, who lived in the big house just a short skip away and whose friendship
allowed Tory to be something she wasn’t allowed to be at home: a child.
After young Hope’s brutal murder, unsolved to
this day, Tory’s life began to fall apart. And now, as she returns to her
hometown, with plans to settle in and open a stylish home-design shop, she is
determined to find a measure of peace and free herself from the haunting
visions of the past. As she forges a new bond with Cade Lavelle, Hope’s older
brother and the heir to the family fortune, she isn’t sure whether the tragic
loss they share will unite them or drive them apart. But she is willing to open
her heart, just a little, and try.
Living so close to those unhappy memories will
be more difficult and frightening than Tory could ever have expected, however.
Because Hope’s murderer is nearby as well.
