Harper Collins William Morrow gave me the go-ahead to reveal the title of my next book, due out in (probably) May of 2018. The title is…
UNDER A DARK SKY
Very excited to have it final and since I’ve been calling it “the dark sky” book this whole time, well…I think it works.
What’s it about, you ask.
Only in the dark can she find the truth . . .
Since her husband died, Eden Wallace’s life has diminished down to a tiny pinprick, like a far-off star in the night sky. She doesn’t work, has given up on her love of photography, and is so plagued by night terrors that she can’t sleep without the lights on. Everyone, including her family, has grown weary of her grief. So when she finds paperwork in her husband’s effects indicating that he’s reserved a week at a dark sky park, she goes. She’s ready to shed her fear and return to the living, even if it means facing her paralyzing phobia of the dark.
But when she arrives at the park, the guest house where she is supposed to have the suite to herself is teeming with a group of twenty-somethings stuck in the orbit of their old college friendships. Horrified that her get-away has been taken over, Eden decides to head home the next day. But when one of the friends is murdered, everyone—including Eden—is a suspect.
As mishaps continue to befall the group, Eden must make sense of the chaos and lies to evade a ruthless killer—and she’ll have to do it before dark falls. . . .
This book is set in Upper Lower Peninsula, Michigan, by the way. I’ll be up there later this month to talk at the Mackinac Island Public Library. I’m staying at the Grand Hotel, wheee! Check my events page for more info!
I’ll let you know when we have a cover to share!
