the mystery behind a misdirected murder. Sawyer's heroine is stuck in a
maze where she can't be sure who
she can trust -- meaning readers
are along for a dangerous and
frightening ride!

Although she is part owner of her deceased parents' legendary Newport Beach surf shop, Hayley Fordham longs to be an artist. Given the opportunity to fly to Costa Rica and produce a hotel mural, Hayley jumps at the chance and leaves town without telling her family. Hayley also lets a friend from out of town use her car and her house. What Hayley doesn't know is that she has been targeted for death. When Hayley's car is blown up with her friend inside it, everyone believes Hayley is dead. Her aunt Meg asks FBI agent Ryan Hollister, a friend's son, to look into Hayley's "death." When Ryan discovers Hayley's still alive, he is thrilled and worried, for a determined killer is still out there! (HQN, May, 376 pp., $7.99)
