Nothing ever happens in Selene, Georgia. The biggest events in the past ten years have been a wedding, a funeral and a bar fight. It's slow, sleepy, a little narrow-minded--but for Cari Gravier, it's home.
Now things are starting to happen that nobody's seen before. Strange things in the woods, dead animals--and dead people. Cari's about to discover a whole new side to Selene. And a past that may come back to bite her....
Cari Gravier might have learned Selene's big secret, but some things remain constant: the Old Town Cafe, blackberry harvesting, and the shaky relationship with her ex-husband, Mike Sullivan.
But there's more change in the wind, the kind even half blind Old Willis can see. The seeds of the past--betrayal, violence, and heartbreak--are ready for harvest.
And some sleeping dogs just won't stay down....
The ache for home lives in all of us, a safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. Maya Angelou
Selene is under attack yet again--this time by the federal government.
Forced out of her self-imposed exile, Cari Gravier returns to a fearful town, a pack in chaos, and a decision she's put off as long as possible, one that may be the beginning of her life--or the end.
Where do you go when home is no longer safe?
