Teaser Tuesday: January 26th 2016

I’m super excited about the book I started this week.  It is called Find Her, by Lisa Gardner and it releases 2/9/16.  Ms. Gardner also happened to write one of my favorite books from 2015 – Crash & Burn.

The book dove right into being terrifying and seems to gaining momentum.  It already has me hooked – can’t wait to see where it goes!

“When I wake up, the sun is gone, my room is dark, and I know immediately that I’m not alone.  I can feel a draft against my cheek, the muted hush of an intruder’s shuffling footstep.”

Book Description:

Flora Dane is a victim. 

Seven years ago, carefree college student Flora was kidnapped while on spring break. For 472 days, Flora learned just how much one person can endure.

Flora Dane is a survivor.

Miraculously alive after her ordeal, Flora has spent the past five years reacquainting herself with the rhythms of normal life, working with her FBI victim advocate, Samuel Keynes. She has a mother who’s never stopped loving her, a brother who is scared of the person she’s become, and a bedroom wall covered with photos of other girls who’ve never made it home.

Flora Dane is reckless. 

. . . or is she? When Boston detective D. D. Warren is called to the scene of a crime—a dead man and the bound, naked woman who killed him—she learns that Flora has tangled with three other suspects since her return to society. Is Flora a victim or a vigilante? And with her firsthand knowledge of criminal behavior, could she hold the key to rescuing a missing college student whose abduction has rocked Boston? When Flora herself disappears, D.D. realizes a far more sinister predator is out there. One who’s determined that this time, Flora Dane will never escape. And now it is all up to D. D. Warren to find her.
