A HOMETOWN BOY (4) by Janice Kay Johnson: After his psychotic brother Robbie goes on a murderous rampage and then kills himself, David Owen must return to his boyhood home to help his mother bury Robbie and deal with the aftermath of the tragedy. Once there, he runs into his old teenage friend, Acadia Henderson. David is reluctant to act on his attraction to Acadia because her father was killed in Robbie’s rampage. But Acadia doesn’t hold David responsible. Johnson does a great job of depicting the aftermath of a tragedy in her original, poignant story.
