#BookSale “The Found Child: Impossible to put down psychological thriller with a shocking twist (The Secrets of Suburbia Book 2)” by Jo Crow

cover

~~~

One mother’s life will change in the blink of an eye—and there’s no going back.

Elaine’s worst fears become reality when her beloved son Jakob is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. She needs to find a bone marrow donor, and time is running out. But while awaiting test results to see if she’s a possible match, Elaine learns a shocking truth about her son; a truth that threatens to send her back to the pills that almost destroyed her life once before; a truth that pushes her already fragile mental state to the breaking point.

Jakob is not her biological son. For years, she has been raising someone else’s child.

Even as the family faces this new crisis, a ghost from Elaine’s past emerges to jeopardize everything she’s built. But is the threat real, or is it all in her mind?

Elaine needs to stay strong for her son, but as her whole reality continues to unravel, she can’t trust anyone—not even herself.

NOTE: Books in the ‘Secrets of Suburbia’ Series can be read as standalones, but are linked by common themes of motherhood, suburbia not being as safe as you think, and how the perfect, sanitized version of life that people often show is far from the truth. Gripping stories with shocking twists just a click away.

#FREE “Unleashed: Sydney Rye Mysteries #1” by Emily Kimelman

Unleashed cover

~~~

My dog once took a bullet that was intended for me.

A bullet that ripped through his chest, narrowly missing his heart, and exited through his shoulder blade, effectively shattering it. This left him unconscious on the floor of my home. Amazingly, this bullet did not kill him.

Ten years ago I adopted Blue as a present to myself after I broke up with my boyfriend one hot, early summer night with the windows open and the neighborhood listening. The next morning I went straight to the pound in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Articles on buying your first dog tell you never to buy a dog on impulse. They want you to be prepared for this new member of your family, to understand the responsibilities and challenges of owning a dog. Going to the pound because you need something in your life that’s worth holding onto is rarely, if ever, mentioned.

I asked the man at the pound to show me the biggest dogs they had. He showed me some seven-week-old Rottweiler-German shepherd puppies that he said would grow to be quite large. Then he showed me a six-month-old shepherd that would get pretty big. Then he showed me Blue, the largest dog they had.

The man called him a Collie mix and he was stuffed into the biggest cage they had, but he didn’t fit. He was as tall as a Great Dane but much skinnier, with the snout of a collie, the markings of a Siberian husky, the ears and tail of a shepherd and the body of a wolf, with one blue eye and one brown. Crouched in a sitting position, unable to lie down, unable to sit all the way up, he looked at me from between the bars, and I fell in love.

“He’s still underweight,” the man in the blue scrubs told me as we looked at Blue. “I’ll tell you, lady, he’s pretty but he’s skittish. He sheds, and I mean sheds. I don’t think you want this dog.” But I knew I wanted him. I knew I had to have him. He was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.

Blue cost me $108. I brought him home, and we lived together for years. He was, for most of our relationship, my only companion. But when I first met Blue, a lifetime ago now, I had family and friends. I worked at a crappy coffeehouse. I was young and lost; I was normal.

Back then, at the beginning of this story, before I’d ever seen a corpse, before Blue saved my life, before I felt what it was like to kill someone in cold blood, I was still Joy Humbolt.

I’d never even heard the name Sydney Rye.

P.S. The dog does not die.

Check out this hot new kidnapping-thriller series that readers love!

Federal prosecutor Athena Kazan adores her job—until someone puts a bullet in her head. Miraculously, she survives the shooting, but her troubles have just begun. A drug cartel wants her dead, and it will pay a big bounty to make that happen.

For two years, Athena lives in Durango, Colorado as part of the witness protection program. Then, in a chance encounter, she meets a pregnant woman at a local gas station. The woman unobtrusively slips a note into Athena’s hand. The message reads: Over forty women and girls—mostly pregnant—held prisoner! Five dead already. We’re an hour east of Durango. Call the FBI. Sheriff’s office corrupt. PLEASE HELP US!

Before Athena can react, a huge armed thug forces the pregnant woman into an SUV. Athena can’t stop him, but she memorizes the SUV’s license number. Then, panic rises in her throat. What if the plate is fake? She follows the SUV at a distance while she calls the FBI and begs for help.

The Feeb turns her down. He’s too busy, he says. Fighting the terror that Athena had hoped she’d never have to experience again, she stays behind the SUV as it drives east of Durango. Her instincts tell her to forget this whole horrible situation. It’s probably just a prank, and if it isn’t, she’ll most likely get shot again.

But Athena knows that if she turns away and tries to forget the pregnant women, she won’t be able to live with herself. After all, a Good Samaritan had helped her once when she was desperate. It’s time to pay it forward.
