Alex Dillard and her friends live a slow life in the small town of Noel. They spend their summer people watching; either at the baseball park, or at the local hangout.
Life is peaceful and almost boring, (un you count the usual cheer squad drama), until Michael Williams, a jaw-dropping athletic hunk moves to town. Mesmerized by Michael's good looks and charm, Alex fears he is way too perfect her. Their fairy tale love is more than puppy love as they discover what love is together. Sweet lovable popular Alex could never hurt anyone, but seems to have made enemies all over town.
When her friends find her naked in a pool of blood, and left for dead, people are left to wonder who would possibly want to harm such a sweet girl and start to doubt her story.
Life can change in a heartbeat, something Alex discovers firsthand. Has the trouble followed the love of her life to town? Will he stick it out? Who is falling for Alex?
