Allison soon meets Tammie, who works for the local coffee show and in mistaken for Maureen. Tammie was best friends with her all those years ago until Maureen vanished. Tammie tells Allison about Maureen and together they start to investigate what might have happened back then. The more they dig Allison figures out that not is all it seems in this small beach town and soon finds herself in danger when the secrets of the past come to light.
