who decides to leave her job & life behind and move to a small town to

background stories. Hated for this book to end BUT there will be a
Summerland by Elin Hilderbrand is a more intense story but interesting.
The location: Nantucket. The story wends its way around 4 high school

There I was in my car at lunch time, reading Vince Flynn’s Kill Shot,
his latest Mitch Rapp novel. I was halfway through and loving it. I
