An attack by a neighbor’s dog when he was seven left Tyler Duncan with scars that were more often hidden than seen, scars that went beyond the physical and would eventually make him question his own manhood.

Ten years later, his reaction to a painful breakup with his first love has triggered his family’s move from Denver to the small Eastern Washington town of Basin Lake.

Beginning his last year of high school in a new town and still holding on to feelings for his ex, he meets Claire Kessel, a girl as stunning as she is smart, a girl that just might help him forget everything bad in his life if he doesn’t manage to mess it all up.

Seventeen-year-old Claire Kessel has always dreamed of becoming a doctor. It’s a career choice aided by the passing of her father from multiple sclerosis when she was a young girl. She doesn’t want anything to get in the way of her goals, especially not boys or the drama they bring with them.

But, as her senior year begins, her beloved younger sister is keeping things from her, her ex-boyfriend returns wanting another chance, and she’s finding it difficult to ignore the arrival of the new, gorgeous and mysterious guy named Tyler.

When high school draws to a close, can Tyler and Claire find a way to stay together, or will adult life and the weight of past loves pull them apart?

Between the Girls is book three of The Basin Lake Series and may be read as a standalone novel.
