The Company You Keep

A dead womanizer. A friend suspected of murder. And a teacher turned sleuth.

In Willow, Ohio, English teacher Kendra Clayton craves more than dateless nights spent grading papers. And boy does she get it when her friend Bernie’s boyfriend, Jordan, a notorious womanizer, is brutally murdered, and both she and Kendra become suspects. Kendra can only save herself—and the friend she believes is innocent—by doing some investigating of her own.

But between Jordan’s past and present conquests—and a chain of emptied wallets and vengeful hearts—which one could be a killer? As another murder draws Kendra deeper into the case, she finds herself attracted to a man who may hold the missing piece of the puzzle. But in the crosshairs of a crafty killer intent on covering their tracks, can Kendra survive long enough to put it together?
