Once upon a time, Elise Cavanaugh had a plan: get close to Carter Emerson, find out what the cops knew about her crimes and then skip town. But that was before things became complicated by her pesky feelings for the Chief of Police’s son. Now her world is unraveling a little at a time and she needs a new way out.
Murder is a small price to pay…
Carter Emerson has lost more than he can bear. His best friend has been missing for years, his girlfriend is keeping dangerous secrets and his family is fractured. His grades are dropping at an alarming rate, putting his dreams of becoming a lawyer in jeopardy as well. With things spiraling even further out of control, Carter doesn’t know where to turn.
Murder is a small price to pay...
When an unexpected guest appears to mourn the Emerson family’s loss, Elise's schemes become near impossible for her to bluff her way out of. With Carter's attention elsewhere and her brother out for blood, Elise finds herself caught in a war of epic proportions that she never wanted to be a part of. But when her lies surface, will Elise realize in the end, murder really is a small price to pay?
