Deadly Homecoming Book 1
Dark and abandoned, Marston's Tunnel is a place no one dared enter, except the teenage girl who is found murdered there. When FBI Agent James 'Mac' McLane returns ten years later, he hopes to clear the black cloud that has haunted his home town since the grisly murder.
What Mac doesn't foresee are the town's secrets which have been buried since that horrific night. Nor does he anticipate the passion that ignites upon seeing Lizzie Signorino, his former high school flame. But some people will do anything to keep their secrets hidden...even kill again.

“What are you doing here?” Mac stepped out of the old train tunnel into the warm fall sun, closer to her. Her musky scent reminded him of the woods, cool and inviting.
“I followed you here to get some closure.”
“You could have answered my letters,” he said. “That might have given us both closure.” And we wouldn’t be here wondering where we stand.
She couldn’t fake her dumbfounded expression. “I never got letters. You took me to the dance on a dare. You used me. I thought if I could just tell you…”
“That I ha—” She sighed. “I can’t even tell you how much I hate you. I’m so stupid.”
In the next heartbeat, she was in his arms, her entire body against his.
“It was a dare. But it became more.” He leaned down and kissed her. Not gently. Not forceful. Just needful. It felt good, right.
She slipped away. “I will not fall for you again. Stay away from me.”
He let her go. “Ask your parents about my letters, Lizzy.”
She paused enough to let him know his words hit her. Then she got into her car and left.
Mac noticed the insects in the woods over his left shoulder grew quiet. He heard the sound of a twig breaking. He was on instant alert, ready with his gun in his hand. Someone was there.
