Excerpt



Jaymee had spent seven years squirreling away every extra cent and trying to get the nerve to find the little girl she’d been bullied into giving up. She needed to stay below the radar and focus on her own problems.

She hated being alone in this life.

But that wasn’t fair. There was Cage, Lana’s brother. He and Jaymee remained close, but there were things he didn’t know; things she couldn’t tell him. It wasn’t the same.

Lana had been her only real ally, a mother figure when Jaymee’s own mother was forced to pretend her daughter didn’t exist. Jaymee dug her fingernails against her lips to keep from crying. Her throat stung with the effort.

She missed her mother as much as she did her dead friend, and Sonia lived five minutes away. She’d never been allowed to give Jaymee much comfort, at least not when her father was around. But still. Sonia had been there, and the love in her eyes–the one thing Paul Ballard couldn’t beat out of her–had shined when she looked at Jaymee.

A rogue tear trickled down her face. She huffed angrily and wiped it off her face. Time to stop feeling sorry for herself and focus on the problem. Getting involved in Rebecca’s murder would only complicate her life. Give a judge another reason to turn her request for custody down. If she ever found Sarah.

When she found her. Jaymee had come too damned far to believe anything else.

The racket of cicadas accompanied Jaymee on her walk home. The sun had set an hour ago, but a shadowy glow hovered in the western sky. Downtown Roselea was mostly closed up, but a few stragglers were out to enjoy the relatively cool evening air. Jaymee left downtown behind her and headed into the residential district. She’d taken this route home for seven years. Sometimes she caught a ride from Cage or his parents or Crystal, but plenty of nights she wound down from a busy shift by strolling past the quaint, old homes.

Tonight was the first time she felt the need to look over her shoulder.
I killed your wife again last night.
