Nineteen-year-old Patty has a lot of baggage. Abusive parents. A horrible boyfriend. The stifling cocoon of her Podunk town. She longs to become a travel writer — visiting exotic lands far, far away…
But escaping town the way she does, forced by her boyfriend Roy to join him on a violent crime spree across middle America was not the travel of Patty's dreams. It's a journey that will only land her in jail — or dead. But escaping Roy is out of the question. He'd hunt her down, find her, and surely beat her worse than he's ever beaten her before.
When they stumble across the gentleman alone at the cabin by the lake, he offers Patty a glimmer of hope and freedom. But this man hides evil secrets of his own…
A Note From the Publisher
"Two different life stories, poetry and dominate relationships lead to four strangers and a life changing moment. Dale keeps you guessing how two couple's unhappy lives will be tied together." –Stephen W. Briggs, author Family of Killers: Memoirs of an Assassin

I was hooked with Patty and Roys story. I kept hoping that she was gonna be somebody and have a good life. But Roy is an abusive butt that just wouldn’t let her go.
Bringing in Maggie and William was a plot twist that was confusing. I think the whole story would have been better if those two had been left out and the focus remained on Patty. But that’s just my opinion.
Many thanks to Netgalley for this ARC.
