First Happy Halloween!
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk books!
This is a novel that Stacey actually wrote several years ago. It’s a mystery with a little bit of romance and trust me, the main character, Rennie, she’ll make you laugh too. It’s like a grown-up Nancy Drew if Nancy didn’t quite have her life together.
I adored reading this book and I was so happy to be able to help Stacey make it widely available to more readers.
To celebrate, I propose a contest!

“Come on.” Aron pulls me over to a table with a built-in chessboard. There’s a box on the table with some old plastic chess pieces in it. “My father and my brother Max would play every Sunday afternoon, and I would sit at the table, watching them. They thought I was too young to understand, but I picked it up quickly.”
“How old were you?”
“Four.” As my mouth drops open, his expression turns cunning and mischievous. “I love this game. The strategies are useful in life as well.”
“Oh, really?” A smile tugs at my lips.
“Mmm. I’m using one right now, in fact.”
I laugh, but it’s breathless as he looks me up and down. “Are you going to tell me what you’re up to?”
“And yield my advantage?” He gives me an absolutely wicked grin. “Never.”
