About the Book:

Lily Grimes had it all. She was head cheerleader, the girlfriend of the All-American High School Quarterback, had been accepted to a prestige college near her hometown and the best family and friends a young woman could ask for. Just before Christmas 2004, Dr. Jethro “Jet” Manning, the doctor-in-training for the quaint little town, nearly runs over Lily, who is found unresponsive and icy cold in the middle of a backroad.

Fast forward to 2015 – Lily Grimes finally wakes up and has to face the reality of being in a coma for the past 11 years. Her life has changed but just as she feels like she is getting into the groove of things, Lily discovers secrets have been kept, lies have been told and everyone whom she considered a ‘friend’, may not be out for her best interest. Lily feels like something is missing – a piece of herself. Is it simply because she was in a coma for so long or is there literally a piece missing?

As she sets out on a mission to find the answer, Lily discovers that she’s being stalked and someone is trying to kill her. Who can she trust and will she ever find the secret to those eleven missing years?

Excerpt from the Book:

“You really need to quit those things. I heard they can kill ya,” slurred Wade. “I’ll give these up when you give up drinkin’ whiskey and chasin’ women”, Jenny retorted. Wade drew his lips into a sneer and spat, “Just like a woman. Always expecting more than you’re willin’ to give,” She turned to throw her cig in the snuff-out can and turned back to face Wade. “What do you want, asshole?” “We never thought Lily would wake back up but now that she has, it’s time for you to pay up. Do you really think she’s going to be your friend when she finds out how you’ve deceived her?” asked Wade. “I did what I had to do to protect her,” spat Jenny, fighting back tears and the urge to knock Wade’s head off of his shoulders.
