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.
This was a great book. Betsy is having nightmares of a night that happened years before. She is murdered and Sam comes home to help his brother figure out why. It looks like a serial killer has been killing people from Betsy's high school class one by one. Lainey is Sam's old flame and is still in town and hasn't forgiven him for never coming back for her. As the investigation progresses, it becomes obvious the killer isn't done yet.
I really liked Lainey. She is a beautiful, strong woman who has been through quite a bit in her life. Sam is awesome and a hot mess. I like how they don't just automatically come together but have to work out their issues. The killer isn't done with his cover up and Sam's investigation puts him and Laniey in the line of fire. The author threw in some twists that I wasn't expecting in the story that I really liked. Plenty of danger, romance, and family.
Absolutely a 5/5. Amazing ending to this series.
