Featured: The Invitation by Rachel Abbott
What does Lucas have in store for his guests? A candlelight vigil? No. He has devised a little game to make them tell the truth.
The first time Jemma and Matt were invited to the imposing ocean-view home belonging to Lucas Jarrett, it was for an intimate wedding that ended in tragedy.
Jemma will never forget the sight of the girl’s pale body floating towards the rocky shore.
Now, exactly one year later, Jemma and her husband have reluctantly returned at Lucas’s request to honor the anniversary of an event they would do anything to forget.
But what Lucas has in store for his guests is nothing like a candlelight vigil.
Someone who was there that night remembers more than they’ll admit to, and Lucas has devised a little game to make them tell the truth.
We were all there that day.
Now one of us is dead…
