Synopsis: "GED instructor Kendra Clayton's high school days were nothing to brag about. So she's not too thrilled when on top of having to take a class to renew her teaching certificate or be fired, she gets roped into serving on her high school's reunion committee. Spending time with her former classmates is even less fun than having a root canal. Then to make matters worse, Kendra and the other committee members start receiving strange messages and having freak accidents. When one of the accidents results in a death, Kendra is convinced it's murder. Unfortunately, neither the reunion committee nor the police take her seriously. To try and prevent another death-and to keep from worrying about all the time her sweetie, Carl, has been spending with his scheming ex-wife-Kendra digs into the lives of her fellow committee members and uncovers enough secrets, lies, and betrayal to make her head spin. When a second murder occurs, Kendra realizes she needs to watch her back in her search for the truth before a killer turns her into another buried secret."

My Feelings: This was my first book for Angela Henry but believe me I am certainly gonna be looking into some of her past ones because this was one fantastic work of fiction!

The story opens with the first murder and it's a roller-coaster ride from there with lots of high strung emotions and hints of betrayals. The plot really gets thicker and thicker as a web of mystery and mayhem is woven revolving around the committee "accidents".

I loved Kendra and her devil may care attitude! She's a caring and curious (or should we say nosy type person) but not to the point of letting anybody walk over her kind of individual. I would definately want her on my side! The other characters were very well described and unique in personalities just like real true life persons and situations.

I highly recommend reading this book if you love a good mystery!
