For fans of The Secret History and How to Get Away With Murder comes an exciting new voice in suspense fiction.

Ten years working as a prosecutor have left Meredith Delay jaded and unsure of what she wants out of life. She’s good at her job, but it haunts her. Her boyfriend wants her to commit, but she keeps him at arm’s length. Then Meredith is assigned to a high-profile prosecution involving the violent murder of a fallen hockey star. At first, it appears to be just another case to work. But when her old friend Julian is accused of the murder, it takes on a whole new dimension.

Meredith, Julian, Jonathan, and Lily were a tight-knit group in law school. But now, Jonathan’s defending Julian, and Lily’s loyalties aren’t clear. And when Julian invokes a rare—and risky—defense, Meredith is forced to confront their past.

Has something they played at as students finally been brought to death?

REVIEW:
What a great story!
I love the whole six degrees of separation in this story. I love how the author takes us on this courtroom drama ride, and how you think you know but you end up learning something more. I love the whole concept of this story!
The characters, Julian, Lily, Jonathan and Meredith, have such a great friendship, though tumultuous at times too. The chemistry between them has them coming back to each other, and us coming back to read more about them.
The mystery is so solid. I've seen that show, How To Get Away With Murder, and I can declare factually that I much prefer this twisty tale more. Catherine McKenzie, or rather, Julie Apple, sure has a way with words and wrapping a reader into the story.
Fans, grab this one fast.
If you haven't read any of her books, this is a great place to start!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never
