There's a body buried behind a Mississippi farmhouse . . .
Grace Montgomery knows who it is, and she knows why. She was only thirteen the night everything went wrong. And now, like then, she has no choice but to keep her mouth shut.
Grace left the town of Stillwater thirteen years ago, trying to forget, trying to make good. As an assistant D.A. in Jackson, she's finally achieved the success that was supposed to change her life. But it hasn't--and Grace realizes she has to defeat the past or the past will defeat her. So she's finally come back to face her own history. And to face the people of Stillwater, including Kennedy Archer, the boy who had everything. She's a different person now--tough, self-possessed, and completely uninterested in the people she'd once tried to please. Except for Kennedy . . . But Grace knows how dangerous loving Kennedy could be--to him and to her. [from author's web site]
