She enlists her neighbor, Price Hudson, to help her uncover the truth. But Price shows her much more than just her past—he shows her what it is to be alive.
I live in Arkansas with my husband and four children, two crazy boys and two pretty little princesses. I am the author of several young adult suspense books, the Cassandra Jones saga, and one non-fiction book about the Joplin tornado.
