Love enhances life. It's the icing on the cake. But what if love goes bad? What if it becomes an obsession? Aging rocker Johnny Lee Rogers is coming to Larchborough for a series of charity concerts and dowdy, deluded librarian Lizzie Thornton—his biggest fan—has won tickets to see his final show. Lizzie is convinced that Fate is bringing them together—and she has always wanted a December wedding. The town is basking in a heat not experienced for decades but for DCI Paul Wells and his team this will be no Summer of Love. Lizzie, a group of travelers, and a missing girl all conspire to bring them a time of torment, intrigue, and murder.
