We have a little over a week left to vote in the eFestival of Words Virtual Book Fair.
I’m using that time to highlight my favorites in the competition.
In my opinion, Finding Claire Fletcher is a work of art. It’s a debut novel, but it doesn’t read like one. It’s also a thriller/suspense novel, a genre I don’t normally read. The premise of this books really drew my in. Not only that, but Lisa Regan is my pub sister and my friend. That’s okay, I’m not one to judge a friend just because she’s more talented than I am. 🙂 Besides, none of that mattered once I read the first chapter. It pulled me in so completely, I wasn’t able to anything but keep reading.
If you’re interested, here is a link to my review.
Don’t believe me…?
Newly divorced and with his career in jeopardy, Detective Connor Parks takes solace in the arms of a beautiful woman he meets at a bar. The next morning, Claire Fletcher is gone, leaving nothing behind but an address and a decade-old mystery. The address leads to the Fletcher family home where Claire’s siblings inform Connor that their fifteen-year-old sister was abducted from a city street ten years ago and is presumed dead.
During those ten years, Claire endured the cruel torture and depravity of the man who abducted her. Paralyzed by fear and too ashamed to return to her family, Claire is resigned to her life as Lynn, the identity her abductor forced upon her. Every time she attempts escape or betrays him in the smallest way, someone dies. Even now, her clandestine run-in with Connor Parks may have put his life at risk, as well as the lives of her family.
Connor is convinced that not only is Claire Fletcher alive, but that she is also the woman he met at the bar. Driven to see her again, he begins his own investigation, off the clock and without the police department’s consent. He is determined to find her and unravel the mystery of her abduction and odd reemergence. But finding Claire Fletcher proves more dangerous than he anticipates. In fact, it may be deadly.
