Here’s a preview!
Within twenty-four hours, Katie Drapier has lost her job, become a murder suspect in her former boss’s death, and run into her school girl crush, Jack Pharrell, who stomped on her heart fourteen years ago.
Jackson Pharrell is down on his luck. Nothing seems to be going his way. Things go from bad to worse when he discovers a dead body, who turns out to be the former boss of an old friend’s pesky sister. Plagued with guilt from the past, Jack feels obliged to help her find the murderer while ducking a murder charge, even if it means breaking the law. Together, they dodge police, the real killer, and the growing heat between them. The plan is to rise above their woes and get on with their lives. Falling in love is not an option.
“You think I’m an actual suspect?”
Jack’s jaw tightened. “No clue. Did they suggest you not leave town?”
“Only for a few days, and they instructed me in a polite manner.”
“Well, if they were polite—.”
“Jack. They want me to stay around until the final results of the autopsy are determined.” She stopped to swallow. “You’re not getting the same vibe are you?”
“I’m saying given the circumstances, they’ll probably look at you pretty long before they eliminate you. Part of my training is to study body language. I watched those cops interview you. They exchanged skeptical glances throughout the entire interrogation. Not a positive sign.”
“Good to know,” Katie murmured.
Talk about a cold punch of reality. She became squeamish when she squished bugs. No way could she murder another human. “They can scrutinize me all they want. I have nothing to hide. Besides, I gave them solid alibis. I visited my parent’s after Hazel let me go, and then I went to my friend Jules place. I stayed with her until around two in the morning.”
“Yes, but they haven’t determined the time of death, right? If she died before two,” he turned his head to her, “you’re okay. What if it occurred later? Anyone who’ll vouch for you then?”
“I was alone,” Katie replied softly.
“Can you prove it if you need to?”
“Of course not,” she snapped. She blew out a long spurt of air seeking calm before she spoke again. “How would someone verify they were by themselves if no one is with them?” she asked in a controlled, distant voice.
“No clue.” Jack’s tone equaled her coolness. “You’ll need to find a way if they require an account of your whereabouts after two.”
