Here’s a snippet from the first chapter.  🙂

“Hello.” Jennie pressed the accept button on her phone without checking the caller ID.


The  familiar voice caused butterflies in her stomach.“Yes. Jared? What’s wrong?”She dropped gratefully into a comfy sofa, one of several which lined the faculty building walls.

Jared Stewart perched his body on the edge of his desk. He’d put this conversation off for hours. “It’s Annie and Ralf…”

Jennie’s face chilled as shock forced the blood from peripheral vessels to her vital organs.“Are they okay?” She gripped the cushioned arm of the sofa as her sight blurred.’
