You Again by Ashlee Mallory  A hopeless crush…

Back in high school, Allie McBride thought the sun set around Sam Fratto’s smiles, even if they were only friends. Now she’s older, wiser, hotter, and teaching at the same school they grew up in. When Sam joins the faculty, she has a chance to make good on the crush that got away. But when a dead body turns up on school grounds, they realize there might be a murderer in their midst. The heat keeps getting hotter between Allie and Sam, but more might be in danger than their hearts…

The cute kid from high school is all grown up…

A family crisis brings true-crime writer Sam Fratto back to town after more than a decade’s absence. Teaching at his alma mater seems like a good way to pass the time—especially when he sees that Allie, the geeky, sweet-mannered girl from high school, has blossomed into the saucy teacher in the classroom next door. Too bad finding a dead body transforms his return into one of his true-crime books come to life. And when it seems the killer might be after Allie next, it’s up to him to keep her safe…

A killer determined to keep the past buried at any price…

As if dealing with the return of one ghost from her past wasn’t enough, it looks like the killer might be the person they least suspected. Someone from the past. Someone with something to hide. Someone who thinks Allie and Sam are getting a little too close to the truth. If Allie and Sam are going to get out of this alive, these two friends to lovers will have to work together…or die together…


MY REVIEW:
      What can I say besides I absolutely loved this book? This was such a fun and rather exciting storyline.  It had a past crush of Allie McBride’s coming back on campus where she now teaches.  He being Sam Fratto, the ex-jock, school newspaper reporter and school heart breaker.  Now a New York Times best-selling author.
     Being he was coming home to be there for his mom who has stage 3 breast cancer he just found out about.  He decided to provide his services to his old school since they were in need of a teacher for a quarter.
     His first night back in town he has a run in at the airport with a woman with an out of control child whom she can’t manage.  They have a few words.  She had recognized him as she would since she crushed over him for two whole years but he had no clue who she was.  So, imagine their surprise when Monday rolls around and Allie’s asked to the principal’s office to meet the new relief for the extra classes she had taken on from the shorted teacher, and there sat, you guessed it, Sam Fratto.  Yet, not as shocked as he was.
     To say he felt the chill was an understatement.  Allie was asked to turn over the lesson plans to the other teacher’s class to Sam which she was okay with.  Once dismissed she speed walks to her class, the whole time he is checking out her a--, to get him the folder.  He knew she was trying to ditch him and thought it was funny.  While she was looking he apologizes.  Then, all hell breaks loose.  The construction noise that you could hear stops and then you hear silence and then a lot of people talking in loud whispers. 
     The construction on the peace garden stopped and then there were cop cars everywhere.  When they went down to investigate they were told a body had been unearthed, everyone gasped.  Awhile later, they were told that it was one of their own, a teacher that use to teach there, “Mr. Williams.”  It was now a murder investigation…
     You will get you HEA you are looking for.  I can tell you that but this is a good murder mystery too but with humor and romance.  There is some sadness and disappointment too.  I give it 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.
