Published by Bookouture

Releases April 30, 2021

It wasn't her fault. She never meant to hurt anyone.


A lonely young woman with a tragic past gives in to her worst instincts and is transformed into her best self. Socially awkward Mia Thornton runs into her fellow teachers out on the town and realizes she’s been excluded from their monthly gatherings. When pretty, popular Celeste Cooper drops her car keys, Mia pockets them in an act of petty revenge that leads to an unintended consequence—Celeste goes missing. Determined to make amends for her part in things, Mia involves herself in the search for Celeste. But as she grows closer to the missing woman’s family, she discovers a dark secret, forcing her to confront the danger that’s been following her since her girlhood.
