Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
“ The cherry lights of the officer’s cruiser reflect in my rearview mirror, an all too familiar sight for me. They say you can’t go home again. Well, I’m one of those gals that shouldn’t.”
“Jay eases a hip against the side of the pick-up, his eyes concealed with “you’ll fantasize about me later” style sunglasses. Taking advantage of the reflection, I remove a tube of lip-gloss from my skirt pocket and smooth a fresh streak across my lips. Pressing my mouth together, I primp a lock of hair trying to rouse a reaction from Jay.”
They say you can never go home. Well, Lacie Joe Jensen never wanted to.
Lacie Joe left small town Kentucky for the big city lights and never looked back. Until now. Her ailing foster-father needs her, his memory is failing. But townsfolk remember all too well the troubles Lacie Joe caused as a youth, and they're not afraid to remind her.
Lacie Joe has a few allies in town, for starters, ex-boyfriend turned police officer Jay Hayworth. Jay's kept the fire burning for Lacie during her long absence. He's one of the bright spots in Lacie's troublesome past, him and her truck, Big Orange. A suspicious accident forced Lacie Joe to leave town, Jay steps in to remind Lacie she no longer has the right to remain silent.
