Six months after the events of In the Woods, Detective Cassie Maddox is still trying to recover. She’s transferred out of the murder squad and started a relationship with Detective Sam O’Neill, but she’s too badly shaken to make a commitment to him or to her career. Then Sam calls her to the scene of his new case: a young woman found stabbed to death in a small town outside Dublin. The dead girl’s ID says her name is Lexie Madison (the identity Cassie used years ago as an undercover detective, and she looks exactly like Cassie.
With no leads, no suspects, and no clue to Lexie’s real identity, Cassie’s old undercover boss, Frank Mackey, spots the opportunity of a lifetime. They can say that the stab wound wasn’t fatal and send Cassie undercover in her place to find out information that the police never would and to tempt the killer out of hiding. At first Cassie thinks the idea is crazy, but she is seduced by the prospect of working on a murder investigation again and by the idea of assuming the victim’s identity as a graduate student with a cozy group of friends.
As she is drawn into Lexie’s world, Cassie realizes that the girl’s secrets run deeper than anyone imagined. Her friends are becoming suspicious, Sam has discovered a generations-old feud involving the old house the students live in, and Frank is starting to suspect that Cassie’s growing emotional involvement could put the whole investigation at risk.

Listen. I used to be the laziest person ever. Seriously. On a personal note when I went to Miami back in April I was unhappy with what I saw. (that’s a personal matter please don’t tell me I should be pleased.) Anyway, so when I got home I vowed to start eating healthier. And I realized that because of that decision I was going to try my best to buy organic foods and foods from my local farmers market. I’ve made some pretty great healthy dishes which I’ll share over the next few months.
Of course I couldn’t keep it to ten because there’s so many awesome books I just neeeed to read this Summer! So here is my very strange and somewhat long list! 😉
As many of you know, I DID get to attend BookCon this past Saturday. I was super excited to meet some of my blogging friends and to mingle with some of the publishers and see what was going on! So… let me tell you. This is going to be a bit… ranty.
