Someone was determined to keep Pamela Harrington from returning to Middleton. Not that she was overly thrilled about the prospect herself. She left there fourteen years ago, after a tragic accident and a broken heart, vowing never to look back. Now, one of those rare opportunities of a lifetime was presenting itself, but of course it was in Middleton. What should she do?
Steve Jarrod’s life also changed that day of the accident, but family ties, including an unborn child, prevented him from fleeing Middleton with Pam and had ended their love affair. Now there was a chance Pam might return. Fourteen years was a long time to be apart, but he was determined to seize this second chance at a life together with her, if she was willing.
Neither Pam nor Steve knew that a third party had their own reasons for keeping Pam away from Middleton. When their efforts failed to dissuade her and she moved back to marry Steve, they realized more drastic measures were needed, if their fourteen year old crime was to remain a secret. They had killed once. If necessary, they would kill again.
