Rosalie Hopkins is too busy with her stressful job as a communications consultant to attend the twenty-year reunion for her college study abroad trip to Ireland. All it will do is remind her of a time she can never get back — a time when she was reckless and carefree.

But when another classmate dies mysteriously just days before the reunion, Rosalie realizes she can’t ignore the past forever. WHEN SHE DROWNED follows Rosalie on a dual timeline — twenty years ago on that fateful trip, and her present-day search for the truth that reveals dark secrets among the best of friends.
