When a sudden tragedy turns her life upside down, Alex Ryan resigns as a homicide detective with the Boston PD and goes into hiding to lick her wounds in private. Her self-imposed exile doesn't last long. Life keeps interfering. Her plan goes awry as soon as she moves into her new home. First there is Megan, the gorgeous new neighbor Alex starts to find too distracting, then her best friend Jamie who needs help in solving a murder. That this murder involves Kate, a mysterious blond with a dislike for disco, and a newly discovered interest in women, only adds to the confusion. Add in the cavalry of friends who won't stay on the sidelines for long and Alex finds that even when she tries hard to disengage from life, life has a way of barging in and demanding attention.Casavant, Jessica is the author of 'Walking Wounded' with ISBN 9781932300208 and ISBN 1932300201.
