A part of Mercy died the summer her sister tragically drowned. Now Mercy has a chance to discover if Faith’s death was an accident—or murder.  Her first step is to confront the lead suspects: a band of traveling gypsies—the last people who saw her sister alive. But Mercy finds an unexpected ally in Cross, the soulful musician in their ranks. He’s a kindred spirit, someone who sees into her heart for the first time in, well, forever. Yet stirring up the past puts Mercy in danger… 
Suddenly someone is shadowing Mercy’s every move, making her even more determined to uncover the facts. With Cross by her side, she is ready to face it all, even if that means opening up to him, knowing he may one day leave her. What she discovers is a truth that rocks the foundation of her small river town—and a love worth risking everything for….

I tell stories, mostly to my children, sometimes to strangers. I'm fandom obsessed, over-excitable, addicted to social media, caffeine and Poptarts. You can find me online anytime lurking around the Internet, amped up on sugar and wielding a book. 

Sometimes writing as Julie Chase

This was an amazing book. Julie wrote about a lot of issues (i.e. self-harm, suicide) but did a good job at portraying them. I was hooked on this book even before I realized it.  There was lots of character growth and the relationship growth between Mercy and her family was beautifully done. This is a great book for contemporary romance lovers.
