Beth Ann Decker is a hospice nurse in
Eudena, Texas. For sixteen years she has strived to overcome
the title of “Poor Beth Ann”. A title given to her after a
gruesome accident that left her severely injured and three of
her friends dead. She was made stronger and learned to live
with the past hanging over her head. Now her future, thanks
to a murder, has been thrown into a state of utter upheaval.
Mark Jessup is the black sheep of Eudena,
Texas. His own father has not spoken to him in the sixteen
years since the fatal car accident. He has come home to
attempt to make peace with the only family he has left in
Eduena, his father. He has made peace with himself and grown
into a stronger human being. It does not, however, make it
easy for him to go home again.
In a town as small as Eudena, memories
survive longer than people do. Memories of football victories
and life altering accidents survive the longest. Can Beth Ann
and Mark survive small town gossips, their own memories,
intruders and murder? Can they move forward to the future?
The first chapter of Head On
draws the reader into a tale of heartache, intrigue and the
“joys” of small town life. It develops into a tale of
forgiveness, acceptance and personal responsibility.
Head On looks at the result of what effect an accident
can have on the victims and their families even sixteen years
later. Colleen Thompson gives you all the clues you need to
figure out what is going on, then throws you with a climax
that you just don’t see until it hits you.
