Palace Hills. The very name struck shivers down the spine of the affluent city of Goldendale.
Unfortunately, eighteen-year-old Nina Sharman has no choice but to call the poverty-stricken neighborhood her new home.
Life seems bleak until a chance meeting with Conner Hale changes her mind and captures her heart, leading her to believe that maybe Palace Hills wasn’t so bad after all.
However, one tragic case of mistaken identity changes everything and leads to an event so horrifying that Nina believes she could never recover.
Choosing to leave Conner behind, Nina vows never to return to Palace Hills again.
Five years later, Nina has a new home, a new boyfriend and a new life. Yet, still haunted by the ghosts of her past, Nina finds she must return to Palace Hills to put an end to a nightmare, which has haunted her for years.
Upon her return, one vital slip in judgement threatens to bring the life she had worked so hard to build to come crashing down.
The sheets of my bed felt scratchy and stiff that night. I couldn’t get the day’s events out of my mind. I knew that moving would send my life into a whirlwind, however I didn’t know just how much. Who knew that a twenty-minute distance could prove to be such a stark difference that may mean life or death?
I sighed and grabbed my pillow, forcing myself to sleep. As I lay in my quiet room, horrible thoughts began to enter my mind. I didn’t know how I would be able to survive Palace Hills. I’d be lucky if I made it out alive.
