On a beautiful summer day, Ellen Chambers watches helplessly as her beloved teenage daughter marries the worst possible man. Ellen knows her new son-in-law has violent tendencies and is certain to make Moreen's life hell. As she wonders wistfully if it's possible to get away with murder, a handsome young stranger leans in to her and whispers, "It is."

The uninvited wedding guest is Neal Chambers, whom Ellen last saw twelve years earlier. The boy who left town in the wake of a family tragedy has grown into a disarmingly attractive man. And Ellen, whose own marriage is crumbling, is desperately in need of a friend. Neal's offer of friendship -- not to mention his offer to help out around the farm--seems to come at a perfect time.

But by accepting Neal's gifts of comfort, Ellen is inadvertently setting in motion events that will rock her world to its foundations, events that are pulling Ellen and Neal together into an inescapable web of lies, secrets, betrayals, and death...

From its first unsettling pages to its electrifying end, Mouth to Mouth is a novel of unparalleled power and suspense.
