Nineteen-year-old Emily Sheppard is losing her sanity.
Ever since her mob king boyfriend, Cameron Hillard, abandoned her for her own good, Emmy has been attempting to move on with her charmed college student life as if nothing happened. Now rejected from the underworld and left grieving over Cameron’s alleged death.
Emmy realizes she belongs nowhere. Worse yet, she is now keeping a dangerous secret.
After just a short time with Emily, Cameron has lost control over his world. As he miserably attempts to return to what is left of his life and unravel the mess he has made of the underworld, Emily’s hate turns to desperation. She needs to kill the kingpins responsible for Cameron’s death before they come looking for her. As Cameron secretly observes Emily, he has no idea of the danger he has placed her in—or that it may already be too late for him to save her.
Scare Crow is a tale of revenge, terror, and love as Emmy and Cameron embark on separate journeys to face enemies, correct past mistakes, and find their way to their destinies.
Emmy has tried to go on with her life after Cameron, but she can’t breathe for the pain. It colours everything she does, everything she sees and it seems to go on without end.
The only thing that keeps her going is the desire for revenge on those who took the only thing that she ever cared about away from her – and she will stop at nothing to make sure that happens. All alone and broken, will she ever uncover the truth before it’s too late?
“Waking up with a broken heart, it feels like being stabled a million times by a jackhammer. I would wake up when all I wanted to do is sleep and never wake up again.”
Cameron feels like half a man. Without Emmy, he may as well be truly dead. But he holds on the knowledge that she is safe and living a happy life. When he discovers that she is in trouble, will he get to her in time to save their future?
“That thing was tearing me apart – the visions of the lady in the garden, barefoot, red hair flowing behind her in a nonexistent wind – was the knowledge of what I was missing.
Scare Crow was well worth the wait! Don’t be fooled – this is not a happy story. Julie has painted the landscape with pain and regret, but she also has used bright shades of hope. I loved every sentence and every word. And with a third book in the series planned, I can't wait to do it all over again…
