The police are stumped. Was she a runaway careening toward disaster or the victim of a predator preying on teenage girls? 

When rebellious seventeen-year-old Lisa Grant vanishes from her New Hampshire home, her guardian, Teagan Raynes, becomes ensnared in the frantic hunt to find her. Search dogs lose the girl’s scent at Pretty Park, where another teenager disappeared three months ago. Law enforcement fears a stalker is using the park to abduct young girls. Desperate, Teagan, reluctantly puts her faith in the lead detective, the notorious Noah Cassidy. 

Noah Cassidy’s reputation and job are on the line. Rumors that he attempted to kill the man found guilty of destroying his family in a boating accident have tainted him. To prove his worth, Noah devotes every minute to the case and realizes he’s up against a cunning adversary. Worse, he finds himself distracted by feelings for the attractive, gutsy Teagan. To erase her doubts about him, he must earn back his reputation and let go of his past. He knows what he has to do. He must bring Lisa home and take down the monster who is hunting the girls of Pretty Park before it’s too late.

Top Ten Things I've Learned as an Author by Nora LeDuc

1.   I’ve a better chance of being picked for a makeover ambush on Good Morning America (GMA) than being picked to give GMA an author interview.

2.   When I attend writing conferences and tell people my name, they ask if I’ve ever published. (I’ve had twelve books published.)

3.   Lots of people will congratulate you but few will want to spend the 0.99 for your book. (Is it free yet?)

4.   Many friends will be more excited about the idea of a possible Rocky and Bullwinkle sequel than your book as a movie.

5.   Taylor Swift will not want to sing about your characters’ breakups.

6.   Watching your numbers on your Kindle Direct Publishing page is more addictive than a CSI episode.

7.   Every time I write my bio for the end of the book, I have the same life as the last time I wrote my bio.

8.   If you have a regular “day job” and can’t attend an event, the host will understand. If writing is your day job they’ll expect you there.

9.  If what I wrote yesterday sounds great, I rewrite it.

10. On stories I’ve written, let me plagiarize Oscar Wilde― “I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.”
― Oscar Wilde
