"Very real and exciting read"

This book really disturbed me. Not in a bad way, but made me a little more aware of the kinds of people that are out there.

Ms. Cassidy has shed light on a young girl, Mariah who was attacked by a man and raped. Then after sixteen years, she comes back to the same town to settle her father's estate after he passed away; but now with her daughter, Kelsey in tow. Things seem okay as she gets there and gets reacquainted with people that she once knew. Even as she thinks she may have been able to face her past, it seems to haunt her dreams. But her boyfriend and daughter are there to help her through it. Will the past come back to haunt her?

I give this book two thumbs up as she has created a world like ours -- in fact, it is very much like our world. It has all the chills and suspense that one would look for in a book, definitely stays with you. One suggestion is not to read this one alone on a dark and stormy night.

Just as she feels she is rekindling old friendships and even an old flame, she receives some shocking news; a girl has been killed in her town. Now, Mariah will have to confront the unthinkable—and reclaim the broken pieces of her shattered past.
