When Tim’s wild past causes present day consequences it will test both Alice and Tim and their fledging relationship.

Stella has no memory of that day and Jeanie disappears without a trace. As more young girls vanish, Stella is haunted as she tries to remember what exactly happened. But as old memories begin to resurface, Stella isn’t sure who she can trust….
