Publisher's Summary

When 18-year-old Kara Jones gets into a car accident on the way home from college, she's left with more than a few bruised ribs, a busted cell phone, and a totaled car. After a slip-up at the hospital, she’s shaken to discover that her family isn't all it seems. And now her mother's strange behavior and willingness to do anything to protect her secrets - including pulling Kara out of school - have Kara floundering in the dark.
Enter Derek Miller, a former classmate who's dealing with family issues of his own. His nerdy charm is too much for Kara to resist, and she's even more amazed when he agrees to help her dig into her mother's past. Together, they investigate her mother's old friends and boyfriends, hoping to discover who Kara really is. Instead, they find disturbing connections to the dark history of Kent State University, and an ever expanding maze of mystery surrounding Kara's birth.
As Kara and Derek chase secrets, she realizes he's the only person she can trust. But as they get closer to the truth, the disturbing answers reveal a web of evil far darker and further-reaching than they'd imagined, leaving Kara to wish she'd never asked the questions in the first place.

One of the best from Kate L. Mary

This is my third book from Kate L. Mary and honestly the best one so far.

Kate is really great at making realistic characters and Kara is really believable! She isn't perfect(who is really) and makes a lot of mistakes during this book.

When Kara gets into a car accident she gets hits by more than just a tree, she also gets hit by the fact that the man she always thought was her biological father is not. Angry with her mother for hiding the truth all these years, she storms out her house and walks into a bar where she meets Derek. Meets is not the correct term as they both went to the same High School but Kara barely remembers him. A romance blossom. I won't spoil it here because it's better to experience it.

After her perfect family crumbles and her mother refused to say who her biological dad is, Kara and Derek, go on a journey to find out who her biological dad is. There are lots of twists and turn and Kara and Derek's relationship develop as she learns the truth that she might have been better not knowing.

Intense!

This book hits the ground running and doesn’t let up. It grabbed my attention from the first sentence and had me ganging on every word until the end. I couldn’t put it down and, I hope there’s a follow up book for these characters. The narration was very well done. I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.
