26020141Advance Praise for THE DARKEST LIE

“This one will tug your heart and leave you breathless!” –Natalie D. Richards, author of Six Months Later

“Equally heartbreaking and heroic, CeCe is a character you’ll root for. You won’t be able to turn the pages fast enough!”– Romily Bernard, author of the FIND ME trilogy

“The Darkest Lie is not only a twisty, fast-paced thriller that kept me guessing to the end, but also the story of a fearless girl struggling to understand the mother she lost, and uncover the secrets around her death that others want to stay hidden.”—Shannon Grogan, author of From Where I Watch You

“The Darkest Lie is a headlong rush into the shadows of secrets that should not be kept – and proof that the most dangerous lies of all are the ones we tell ourselves.” –Michelle Zink, author of The Prophecy of Sisters

Book Summary

Clothes, jokes, coded messages…Cecilia Brooks and her mom shared everything. At least, CeCe thought they did. Six months ago, her mom killed herself after accusations of having sex with a student, and CeCe’s been the subject of whispers and taunts ever since.

Now, at the start of her high school senior year, between dealing with her grieving,  distracted father, and the social nightmare that has become her life, CeCe just wants to fly under the radar. Instead, she’s volunteering at the school’s crisis hotline—the same place her mother worked.

As she counsels troubled strangers, CeCe’s lingering suspicions about her mom’s death
surface. With the help of Sam, a new student and newspaper intern, she starts to piece together fragmented clues that point to a twisted secret at the heart of her community. Soon, finding the truth isn’t just a matter of restoring her mother’s reputation, it’s about saving lives—including CeCe’s own…

When Savannah wakes up after two months in the hospital, she sees a whole lot more than expected, things that could put those close to her at risk.

The five Delcarta sisters have never believed in the paranormal, not like their woo-woo mother. Instead they believe in the power of sisterhood, of romance, and rebuilding their lives after their father’s mysterious disappearance nine years earlier. Starting anew in the small town of Iris Harbor, they see potential in all.

But Savannah’s awakening after having surgery on a life-threatening aneurysm brings a unique ability to the Delcarta sisters–together, each can predict the future with one of the five senses. And Savannah has the gift of sight.

A serial arsonist has been terrorizing the tight-knit community, and the Delcarta sisters have their suspicions on who could be to blame, including a boy who starts as an adversary to Savannah and then very quickly becomes her whole world. Investigating these crimes, trying to stop them before the next flame is sparked will call upon Savannah to use her newfound abilities with the help of her sisters, and will put each of their lives in danger.

This stunning new paranormal series blends the sweetest of romances with breathless suspense, and introduces five young women who share a haunted past, an extraordinary gift, and an uncertain future.
