a stranger thing

My newest book, A Stranger Thing, will be out in a few weeks! In the next several days, I will be publishing fun interviews with the major characters. 🙂 To give you a little idea what the book’s about, here’s the back cover description:

A plane ticket to New York with an anonymous note: “Please come. I need to talk to you and I have a surprise for you.” A scandalous engagement. A long-sought-after answer that was once of ultimate importance but will now have unforeseen consequences. Two nearly decade-long relationships dissolving in hours. Sightings of a little girl who may or may not exist. A photograph titled From Budapest With Love. An international murder with ties surprisingly close to home.

It’s not exactly what Lorylyn Porter, Kylar Landell, Jansen Montgomery, and Zibby Ainsley had in mind when they came up with the motto “new year, new lives, new guys.” But as Lorylyn, Zibby, and Zibby’s husband DJ move to Denver and Kylar and Jansen settle in Chicago, they will all encounter the unexpected. From a family emergency to the fallout of an emergency room disaster, from a letter with a shocking return address to a troubling analysis of a psychological test, each girl’s life will irreversibly change in a matter of days.

And while “new guys” isn’t so accurate, except maybe for Lorylyn’s roommate Taylor, who consistently dates two or three guys at once, it is definitely a new year and a new life for each of the girls…a year in which strangers will become fast friends, and the oldest of friends will suddenly find themselves little more than strangers.

Look for Lorylyn’s interview first, coming tomorrow!! 🙂
