Please avoid spoilers!
Sylvie Davis is a ballerina who can't dance, she lost everything important to her in one missed step.
Uprooting her from her Manhattan apartment, and shipping her to Alabama is her mother's solution for Sylvie's unhappiness. But life might not be any more simple down south. As it turns out, her family has a lot more history than Sylvie ever knew. More unnerving, though, are the two guys that she can't stop thinking about.
Then Sylvie starts seeing things. A girl down by the lake. A man peering into the window. And a graveyard with an oddly placed headstone. Sylvie's lost nearly everything—is she starting to lose her mind as well?
"Okay, maybe not. But as Shawn held Gigi like a football in one arm, an older woman wearing a smart pantsuit cooed and scratched the dog's ears. She had to be about my mother's age. Which didn't mean there wasn't some cougar-type flirtation going on. "
