"After three years in Boston Brahmin territory, Blanche White is finally coming home to Farleigh, North Carolina, for an entire summer. And, like a sign from above that she's indeed headed in the right direction, she's already lined up a date with the handsome train conductor she met somewhere between Boston and Baltimore. The summer holds lots of promise - including a long-awaited reunion with her best friend, Ardell, as she helps out with Ardell's bustling new catering business." "Then, like a slap in the fact on her first night back, Blanche is reminded of a part of home she'd rather forget: David Palmer, the man who raped her eight years ago and who has tormented her mind and spirit ever since, shows up as a guest at her very first catering event. The time has come ... she must exact her revenge so that she can finally move on." "Then a young woman is murdered and there are signs that David Palmer may be involved. So Blanche sets of on a hunting expedition - for clues she hopes will help convict David Palmer and put an end to his legacy once and for all."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
