When Fiona Claridge was in college, she was responsible for a car accident that killed her roommate, Mia Hardy. Eight years later she has mostly moved on and teaches English at a small college in New England. However, her grief and guilt over Mia’s death come back when someone begins sending her sinister packages with threatening messages. She assumes the culprit is a disgruntled student, until the incidents escalate and she realizes that she needs to find out who is threatening her before she becomes the next victim.
It took me a little while to get into this book at first because there are a number of different characters and figuring out how they are all related to each other is a bit tricky. But, once I figured out who everyone was I enjoyed this mystery a lot. There are plenty of twists and turns in the plot and I was kept guessing until the end; the plot is also rounded out by a bit of romance as well as Fiona’s emotional journey coming to terms with the accident she caused.
