About the book
All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far… and almost doesn’t make it back.
John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won’t soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won’t be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge—and over…

I asked, Jennifer answered
A. What's the scariest thing that's ever happened to you? Bonus question: have you used it, in any way, in a book?
J. I had a car accident and couldn’t remember parts of it later. I did use this in a book, but I’m not sure yet when it will be published.
A. Mystery writers often give their characters an unreasoning fear - and then make them face it. Do you have any phobias, like fear of spiders or enclosed spaces?
J. I definitely have claustrophobia like Meg, the heroine of GOING TOO FAR. That part of the book was very easy for me to write!
A. Do you have a favorite mystery book, author, or movie?
J. I love the old-school Mary Stewart romantic suspense novels.
A. At its heart, every story is a mystery. It asks why someone acts the way they did - or maybe what will happen next. What question does your book ask?
J. Why is Meg self-destructing?
A. Is there a mystery in life that you are still trying to figure out?
J. Yes—how to work the TV remote.
