Alexia Allen is on enforced leave from her firefighter job in Washington when she receives a phone call from a high school friend inviting her to their tenth reunion. Impulsively, she decides to return to the town she fled on the day after graduation ten years ago.
Her homecoming starts off with an almost-literal bang when she discovers a murdered classmate in her mother’s basement. And the action is just beginning. As Alexia battles secrets from her past, she finds she’s become a target.
The detective assigned to investigate the murder makes her heart flutter when she recognizes him as someone she had a crush on when she was in school. But by his reaction to her, she knows he suspects her of the crime.
When the Smoke Clears is filled with plot twists. I couldn’t stop myself from reading on (and on) when I should have been sleeping. If you enjoy mystery/suspense with a touch of romance, you’ll love When the Smoke Clears.
