Nothing ever came between sisters Alice and Charlie.
If by nothing, you mean everything. The sisters haven’t been able to stop fighting since they arrived in Serenity Point two weeks ago. Those two weeks changed their lives. And Serenity Point has changed them.

Friends didn’t.
Charlie has a new group of friends and a new life. Jude and Cybill are beautiful, exciting, and dangerously seductive. And though Sasha is proving to be a friend and confidante to Alice, Alice can’t get away from the people, places, and events that mire her in the past.

Boys couldn’t.
Alice loves Tommy, but the memory of Camilla, dead and gone, is driving a wedge between them. And Alice’s ex-boyfriend Patrick won’t give up on her, no matter what she says to keep him away. Jude is slowly giving up his bad boy ways for Charlie—but it’s not smooth sailing if Cybill has anything to say about it. And then Nick arrives: Dr. Van Stratten’s former intern seems to know things about last summer— things that Jude and Tommy would rather not be revealed. Alice is determined to find out what.

Their family falling apart never would.
While the sisters grapple with the terrible truth about their family, the one-year memorial of Camilla’s death looms. The tension mounts and sparks fly as bright as July Fourth fireworks—and Alice and Charlie team up to find out the truth that everyone seems to be hiding.

Until they got to Serenity Point.
Is Camilla their enemy and rival—even six feet under? Or is she their sister, whose memory they have to protect? And what really happened to her that night on the bridge? In a town built on secrets and lies, can the truth stay buried for long?

This sequel picks up right where THE INNOCENTS leaves off and is filled with all of the mystery, romance, drama and unanswered questions that readers enjoyed about book one.

Things between Alice and Tommy heat up only to be tested when Patrick rolls into town. Then there's tall, dark and broodish bad boy Jude and Charlie's hot mess of a relationship that Cybil can't seem to stay out of and Camilla is still haunting people's dreams. Toss in a few new faces, some teenage binge drinking, a few colorful drugs and a splash of sexual experimentation and The Innocents don't look so innocent after all. *raises brow*

The questions surrounding Camilla's death are answered, sort of, as are the ones involving her mother, father and Tommy's doctor Dad, sort of. But never fear, there is still plenty to keep Nancy Drew wannabe Alice busy. She has her heart set on vengeance and fans of this series will want to find out if she gets it.
