Book Description

 May 7, 2012
While driving to a charming village tucked away deep in the Cascade Mountains of eastern Washington, where she is to begin a new job teaching high school English, Katrina Burton picks up a young hitchhiker who turns out to be drunk and predatory. Fearful for her safety, she lies about her destination in order to get him out of the car. But when she later discovers that he is a teacher at the same school, she finds herself feeding that initial lie with more lies. Then Katrina meets a mysterious man . Handsome, charismatic and strong, he is exactly what she needs to extricate her from the expanding network of lies, now spinning out of control. She falls fast and hard for him. But her perfect solution soon becomes a nightmare that lands her in the middle of a grisly murder. And Katrina's problems don't stop there. She must decide whether to betray her new love or to cover up the murder and hope for the best.

Editorial Reviews


"A fresh perspective on the familiar saying 'Think before you speak.' Adeptly demonstrates how one unplanned utterance can get a person into a heap of trouble... well thought out... seamlessly builds a series of events that culminate in a dramatic ending."- Reader Views

"Bates takes an intriguing premise to shocking lengths, revealing the outcome only in an epilogue. A graphically violent story with building suspense and a moral about where weaving such a web may lead."- Booklist

"Fast-paced, the tense thriller grips readers as the beleaguered Kat learns to obtain background checks on males if she lives long enough to meet another exhilarating taut tale."- The Mystery Gazette

"This is an excellent book with interesting characters. There is so much intensity that you need to keep reading."-,

"A cracking good suspense novel, easy and undemanding but a jolly exciting read, to curl up on a cold winter's day in front of the fire with."- BeadyJans Bookshelf
