Details of Altered Beginnings


The headline in the small town newspaper read Girl Missing, Presumed
Dead or Worse. Leigh Lawson returned to Nags Head, North Carolina after
four years with a huge shock. That big and bold headline was about her!
Everyone thought she was dead! The truth was that she was doing well.
While gone, she had gotten clean from drugs and worked hard to get her
bachelor’s degree in engineering. With her life back on track, she
returns home in hope that she will receive a warm welcome. Instead, she
gets the townsfolks’ disdain. Leigh’s life soon spirals out of control
when the police recruit her for an undercover assignment. They want her
to go back to the life of her troubled teenage years, back into the
drugs, and help them to bring the local drug supplier to conviction. It
may be Leigh’s only chance to redeem herself with her family and
friends. If she can complete this one assignment, the town will forgive
her. The only problem is that she needs to figure out how to stay alive
in the process… Jason Altarez is her continuous partner through it
all, proving his dedication to her as he struggles to keep her safe.
Leigh wants to believe he is a man of his word. She wants to believe
that her heart isn’t completely foolish for falling for him, especially
when she discovers evidence that Jason may be working for the very drug
dealer that Leigh is trying to have arrested. Will he betray her in the
end or will he demonstrate the most romantic notion of all that love at
first sight truly exists?
