All she wanted was revenge—until she got it.


When Savannah abandons her old life for a new beginning, her attempts to forget lead her right back to where she started. One day, a mysterious book appears in the mail, giving her a temporary escape from reality. But soon she realizes that this book’s story echoes the past she’s been running from. How does the author know her secrets? And who wrote it?


Soon, Savannah’s real-life exes start dying in suspicious circumstances just like in the book, and Savannah discovers that the book’s protagonist is seeking revenge and murdering her enemies.


The lines between fiction and reality begin to blur and Savannah wants it to stop, and fast. She wanted her exes to pay, but not with their lives. Can she find the homicidal author before it’s too late?


With the help of a private investigator, Savannah must face her demons to save her future before the past returns for its final chapter.
