The Lying Woods

Ashley Elston

In Elston's (This Is Our Story, 2016) latest, senior Owen Foster has never wanted for anything. But then his mother shows up unexpectedly at his glamorous New Orleans boarding school and drops a bombshell: for years his father embezzled millions leaving his company, his employees, and his family in shambles. Now he's on the run from the FBI leaving Owen and his mother to return home and deal with the fallout. With threats to his mother and a mysterious, encoded note from his father on his mind, Owen turns to the only two people in town who welcome him: his former best friend, Pippa, and Gus who owns a local pecan farm where he works after school.
