Forget about that hazy Fourth of July night. So when someone in town anonymously nominates Darcy to be in the running for Bay Festival PrincessA??a cruel act only someone with a score to settle would makeA??all of the things that Darcy wants to keep hidden threaten to erupt in ways she wasnA??t prepared to handleA?¦and isnA??t sure if she can.
