Clare lives with her mother in Winston. In the last two years people have been murdered and the town is on edge as the murder anniversary date of the fourth of July is nearing.

Clare loves to design her own clothing, sometimes even sell her designs. Her main passion in life is shopping for vintage items at charity shops to redesign into an outfit of her own style and making.

Clare also happens to have visions. When she touches fabric she has visions from the lives of those that wore them. As she loves to design her own clothes and shop at used stores she has these visions often. But when she happens upon one of the particular girls jacket. The visions pull her into the mystery of what really happened that night that she went missing, one year ago. Clare is torn between how deep she should get into investigating the visions that the jacket is causing. It scares her how vivid they have become. But when clare's friend receives a threat, the mystery of what the jacket is trying to tell her about the murders becomes a priority. It may just be a matter of life and death.

Clare is an eclectic character. She has a few but dedicated friends, she has a passion for clothing and designs and style. The family dynamics and relationship between herself, her mother and her grandmother was my favorite part of the story. They struggle to put together lost relationships and work through their past disagreements.

At first Clare, like a lot of others suspected it was the boyfriend that caused the girls disappearance. But upon making friends with him, she can see that he would not have done it. She continues to ask questions and has several visions that drive her deeper into the story.

She is a very caring person and even though her visions are scary and most would not get involved, she reaches out and in the end we have a story of loss, mystery, family and friends. Through Clare's investigations and visions we get to see how close the people in the town are to each other.
