While driving to a charming village tucked away deep in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State, where she is to begin a new job teaching high school English, Katrina Burton picks up a young hitchhiker who turns to be drunk and predatory. Fearful for her safety, she lies about her destination in order to get him out of the car. But when she later discovers that he is a teacher at the same school, she finds herself feeding that initial lie with more lies.
Then Katrina meets a mysterious man. Handsome, charismatic and strong, he is exactly what she needs to extricate her from the expanding network of lies, now spinning out of control. She falls fast and hard for him.
But her perfect solution soon becomes a nightmare that lands her in the middle of a grisly murder. And Katrina's problems don't stop there. She must decide whether to betray her new love or to cover up the murder and hope for the best...until she discovers that the choice may not be hers to make.
You tell one lie...you can always correct yourself if you want, but if you keep telling lies well....
This story grabs you from the get go. You have to keep reading, the characters that Mr. Bates has created just scream "Guess what I'm going to do next!".
Katrina is a bit of a push over and it's understandable being that she hasn't really lived life for the past two years, but man oh man (LOL)!
Zach, even though he is brash, an BUTT, I really wanted to smack him ( a lot of the time), he does grow on you.
Then you have Jack the token HOTTIE, BAD BOY, the one Katrina falls hard for. To be honest I'd probably take him home like a lost little puppy myself! He is a very interesting piece of work....makes the lies keep coming to say the least....
When you get them all together well...yeah...LOL
Teachers can party pretty well when not at school and Lies (even "white Lies") only take you so far.
