Story about two highschool students who meet 15 years later after one of the students was acquitted of a crime when he was a teenage. After coming back and literally running into each other, they both have to find out who is killing their "old" group members.
This was a really terrific read. It kept my interest and the characters worked well together with great dialogue.
As teens, Lori Corcoran and Sean Black shared a brief love that ended in tragedy when a woman died and Sean was tried, and subsequently acquitted, for her murder. Now, 15 years later, Sean and Lori both return to their hometown in southern Florida just as another woman from their circle of high school friends is brutally murdered. Sean, a bestselling crime novelist, is drawn into the police investigation, while Lori, a widow with a teenage son, is reunited with old friends... one of whom may be a serial killer. As their feelings for each other reignite, Lori and Sean struggle to make sense of the past and elude a killer who\'s striking with increasing frequency. Graham skillfully manages a large cast of characters and keeps the suspense simmering, providing just enough clues and titillation to make the pages turn.

This is the first Lisa Jackson book I've read and I want to read more! I've recently gotten into the mystery genre and this book didn't disappoint. I had no clue who the killer was until the very end. I love that!

Mary (BookLady) - reviewed Drop Dead Gorgeous (Suspense, Bk 1) on
I LOVE this book! I love this author so I expected it to be a good read, but it was even better than I hoped. Lots of mystery, good story plots, great characters and HOT sex! This author never fails to deliver a great drama with imperfect heros and heroines that you fall in love with. Somewhat graphic murder scenes in this one. Avoid if you don't like that kind of thing.
