Some secrets aren’t meant to be kept.

Ever since Lou Harrison moved to Somerville, strange things have been happening. Why is it that Amanda Wrenn, a girl who disappeared decades ago, is identical to Lou’s dead sister? Why is Lou having visions of a terrible accident she knows nothing about? No matter how innocent Lou’s new home might seem, she can’t shake the feeling that a horrible secret is hidden there—a secret that someone might kill to protect. In this new thriller from novelist Joyce A. Stengel, the past and present weave together a dangerous web of mystery, deception, and murder. Intricate and fast-paced, this book will have readers holding their breath until the last exhilarating page.
