When Jeanine finally connects with film star Jamie Newkirk, the object of her obsession, will it be a dream come true? Or will she be pulled into his family’s nightmare of secrets, control, and death?
At age ten, preacher’s daughter Jeanine fell in love with young movie star Jamie Newkirk and the character he played–Danny Summer. Jeanine believed God Himself promised Jamie would be part of her life–that he would rescue her from boring rural Georgia. But eleven years later, she’s graduating college and about to settle into the dreary nine-to-five life with no word from Jamie or God.
And then Jamie bursts into her life in an amazing way. There are plans to resurrect the Summer series of books and movies, and Jeanine is right in the middle of it all. Jamie seems to be falling for her, just as she’d dreamed. And yet…
She never expected all the dark undercurrents. Jamie is hiding out in Georgia following the suspicious death of his former girlfriend. And isn’t it odd that he found his mother dead of a supposed suicide in that same house two years before, and that both women had the same strangely-shaped burn on their bodies? And who knew there would be so many sinister characters involved in Jamie’s life, and in the Summer series? There’s his young co-star, Charlie–the Summer author died in an unexplained fire at his house. And Jamie’s stepfather, Elliott, and uncle Richard seem to be in a vicious competition for control of the Summer series and of Jamie’s life.
Jamie is obviously hiding things–about his family, about the deaths of his mother and girlfriend. The media and the public have declared him guilty. Jeanine longs to prove his innocence. Unless she can, Jamie’s dark secrets may shatter her dreams, her faith–and her life.
