Can’t wait for this one? Check out FAMILIAR LIGHT(only $3) to get the early scoop on the unsolved murders leading to the LIES! Here’s today’s snippet between Holden and Julia, ex-lovers who haven’t seen one another since she disappeared years ago without a word of explanation.

Reasons not to trust him begged for her attention, but she wanted nothing of them. It had been far too long since anyone had held her, and Holden was like comfort food to her battered soul. Her reasons for leaving existed as petty little bits of debris scattered on her emotional floorboard, years of pain and regret not enough to stop the crashing of her defenses when he was around.

Although every moment they’d once shared had been some version of a lie, she’d managed to sleep at night just fine … there was certainly nothing stopping her from doing it now.

Besides, this time, she had absolutely nothing to lose.

Everything was already gone.
