Dying to Remember is the fourth in the acclaimed Jennifer Marsh Mystery Series.
Twelve years ago Jimmy Mitchell disappeared the night of Jennifer Marsh’s prom, and now her good friend Leigh Ann is desperate for Jennifer to accompany her to their high school reunion. Nothing could make her go back to confront Sheena Cassidy, the backbiting, mean-spirited, boyfriend stealing junior squad cheerleader that made her life a living hell—nothing except a note from Sheena’s now husband Danny Buckner, Jennifer’s first love and prom date, who is pleading for her help with something that happened on that horrendous prom night. But when she gets to the reunion, Danny barely has a chance to speak with Jennifer before he’s drawn away by one of his in-crowd. Less than an hour later Danny’s dead in the parking lot, an apparent suicide. And Gavin Lawless, budding singer/song writer and the love of Leigh Ann’s life, has returned to dredge up exactly what happened to Jimmy Mitchell that dreadful night twelve years ago that left Gavin with repressed memories and war hero Ben Underwood under a cloud of suspicion in Jimmy’s disappearance. Old grudges and new insights lead Jennifer straight into danger as she’s left Dying to Remember…
Jennifer’s writers’ group is back, ready as always, to go undercover and ferret out information and help with outrageous ideas. Jennifer’s boyfriend, investigative reporter Sam is back, too, as is her ever faithful greyhound Muffy.
