Publisher Description

A woman fleeing her past finds more than she bargains for in a new suspense series by New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank.

A woman on the run with no one to trust.  

With the ink barely dry on her new identity, Cary Moore just wants to disappear…but fate has other plans. 

Broken down car, next to nothing in her bank account, Carly is stuck in a Smoky Mountain town that time has forgotten. Drum is riddled with secrets and outsiders are eyed with distrust. Still, it isn’t until she witnesses a cold-blooded murder in a darkened parking lot, that she realizes she’s escaped one nightmare, only to land in another.

As the clock ticks down and more bodies pile up, Carly doesn’t know who to trust. If she doesn’t stop the killers, they just might stop her…permanently.

Great New Series!

This is the first book in the spin off from the Rose Gardner series. It was great to watch Carly develop throughout the book. We see her kindness shine through in this book. On the run from from a wealthy criminal she finds herself stuck in the middle of a murder investigation in the small town of Drum, TN. The story line and s fast paced and full of twists and turns. A great debut in the series. Congrats on another well written book Denise Grover Swank!

Hang on to your socks!

I am so excited about this series. I’ll have to admit, I wasn’t expecting this to be as good as the Rose Gardener books, because I love them so much! But, the Carly series is just as good and maybe even better because I’ve got a fresh new story line to alternate between Rose! Denise is brilliant and I can’t wait to see what kind of adventure the next book holds!

Love the new series

Denise Grover Swank continues the story of Carly that began in her Rose Gardner series. You don’t have to read the former to follow and enjoy this novel. I love the way DGS creates characters you will love or hate...and will love her story plots which drop clues of you pick them up as she keeps you up reading this book because you just can’t stop! I totally recommend this first book in a new series. As well as recommend the Rose Gardner and Neely Kate series which this spins off of. Warning: her books are addictive!
