Scout Selection: The Girl Next Door

The Girl Next Door

She might be a killer… but she can’t remember.


Am I a killer?

That is the question haunting 25-year-old Jane Jensen.

When she wakes up in the hospital after a devastating auto accident, she finds that her memory since ninth grade of high school has been wiped clean. As she heals, she begins to recover a memory here, a memory there, and piece by piece, she tries to stitch everything together to restore the narrative of her identity.

Jane is aware that she has gone from bullied, overweight schoolgirl to successful corporate wonk in the last several years. But when the wife of her teenage obsession gets killed in a professional hit, Jane makes yet another transition—to that of murder suspect.

It’s a situation that would be untenable for anyone but it’s infinitely worse for Jane since she can’t defend herself from the awful accusation for one major reason: Jane truly has no idea if she’s innocent or guilty.

The Girl Next Door will keep readers guessing until the very end.

About the Author:
I’m a NYC gal, born and bred though I’ve lived in a few other places over the years—Chicago, Los Angeles, and Santa Fe. I’ve been writing in one form or another for my entire life, but fiction has been my definite thing for the last ten years. When I’m not writing—or hiking with my golden retriever and little scrappy terrier (my dog’s rescue dog)—I teach English and writing to skeptical college freshmen and copyedit manuscripts for other authors.
