Miller's CreekBook - 2015
Seventy-five years ago in the rural town of Miller's Creek, Jacob Palmer massacred his family. Sixty years later, thirteen-year-old Jesse Ellis watched his best friend Geoff Meyers commit accidental murder in the cemetery where Palmer was buried when a childish prank went horribly wrong. Unable to cope, Geoff made a tragic decision, leaving Jesse to face the judgmental town and his own nightmares alone. Jesse and his family fled the tragedy, hoping to leave the past behind.
Fifteen years later, Jesse is hoping for his big break as a journalist for the Attingwood Journal. Then the anniversary of Palmer's killing spree leads Jesse's boss to assign him to the story, and Jesse reluctantly returns to Miller's Creek, dreading the horrors he left there.
What he finds instead is gorgeous Dustin Weaver, a man with a past uncannily similar to his own. As Dustin helps Jesse put his demons into perspective, Jesse uncovers information that may prove Palmer was more than a vicious murderer. In the end, Jesse sees both the possibility to right an old wrong and the chance to gain the future and the man he wants--but only if he can finally lay his past to rest.
