As children, RaeAnne and her sidekick King were held captive after they discovered the body of a boy their age in a crate of apples in their small town’s peculiar orchard. Now RaeAnne is grown and the mother of a troubled young daughter. After her mother is killed in an accident, she travels home to her father with her daughter. But RaeAnne finds that she is not welcomed by everyone, and frightening incidents start to happen involving her and her family. As RaeAnne unravels the mysteries of her childhood, including what happened to her older brother, who vanished on the same night RaeAnne and King found terror in the orchard, she reunites with King. The boy she knew has grown up to be very handsome and guarded. But can the two ever be more than old friends who share a terrifying secret?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to write a story that blended haunting childhood secrets, romantic themes, second chances, and a mystery in a small town setting, with a dash of Gothic elements.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My characters were inspired by the small, rural towns I have visited and lived in. The mystery part was actually inspired by a little known true story–I will be writing a blog post on it someday!
