Clemmie lives in Sun City, South Carolina, a retirement village where everyone keeps an eye out for their neighbor. Dom, her neighbor didn’t answer her morning cell call so she went to his apartment, knocked, no answer so she used her key, he was not there,but something so beautiful was sitting on the table so she took a picture and forwarded it and watched it fly across the internet. This alarmed Clemmie, she has several identities and doesn’t want to be found.
This neighborly deed reveals her past, a murder, lots of cash and someone using their quiet neighborhood for drugs.
Neighbors aren’t what they seem, when moving in they can change their life story and who would know.
Members agreed this was a page turner and few could not put it down. Would you want to live in a retirement village? Also, who says old is boring?
