Hard as she tried, twenty-eight-year-old Kendra Clayton
never quite broke out of her hometown of Willow, Ohio. Now
she works part-time as a GED instructor and beefs up her
income by hostessing at her uncle's restaurant, soaking up
the local gossip. It's a quiet life, but Kendra hasn't
given up hope that one day Mr. Right will walk through the
door. In the meantime, her sleepy hollow is about to get a
rude awakening, and Kendra is about to get some
excitement — though it's not quite what she had in mind....
When Kendra hears that her friend and co-worker, Bernie
Gibson, is finally ready to kick her cheating gigolo
boyfriend to the curb, she couldn't be happier. Forty-
something Bernie deserves much better — and so do all the
other women Jordan Wallace has been involved with. In
fact, Kendra hopes they never set eyes on his lying face
again. And she's about to get her wish.
Before she has a chance to end the relationship, Bernie
discovers Jordan's brutally murdered body on her property.
The first call she makes is to Kendra, the second is to
911. As the two get caught up in a series of police
interviews, Bernie asks Kendra to withhold some seemingly
harmless information. In the name of friendship, Kendra
reluctantly agrees. But soon Kendra's favor ends up
implicating her in the crime.
The only way Kendra can save herself — and the friend she
believes is innocent — is by doing some investigating of
her own. And the closer she looks, the more suspects she
finds. Jordan was a man that women loved and hated —
usually at the same time. Now one of them has crossed that
thin line. But between Jordan's past and present
conquests, which include several girlfriends in a variety
of colors, and a chain of emptied wallets and vengeful
hearts, which one could be a killer? As Kendra's curiosity
draws her deeper into the case, she also gets into an
unexpected attraction to a man who may hold the missing
piece of the puzzle — if she can survive long enough to
put it together.
