Publication Date: October 22nd, 2018

Genre: Thriller

How does an amazing professional opportunity descend into a living nightmare?

Carefree Ginger’s motto of “Work Hard, Play Harder” shapes her life. So when her husband, Jake, gets a job offer on the other side of the country, she is up for the adventure.

But after Jake accepts the promotion, nothing is as expected. While Ginger remains in Cleveland to sell their house, she is plagued by strange prank calls, premonition-like nightmares, and the feeling that she is being watched. Is Jake’s new job putting her in danger?

Unfortunately, she ignores her intuition and soon finds herself face to face with a ruthless killer. Trapped in a deadly world of corporate corruption and murderous greed, she must overcome her own fears and rely on her wits if she plans to survive.

Although the first in the Ginger Gibson series, this is a standalone book.

Excerpt

Oh No! I’m back. I am surrounded by inky black nothingness. The air is musty…damp, my nostrils fill with the smell of dank basement. Like in a haunted house, filled with saws and chains and bloody hooks, this is the perfect place for any psycho to hide his tools of the crazy trade. I’m trembling, from the all-encompassing fear, eating at every cell in my body.Where am I? My fingers search out for clues. Beneath me is a thin mattress on a hard surface. My head rests on a concrete-like pillow. My breathing escalates as the panic rises in my chest. I open my mouth to scream, but only a muted croak escapes. Over the thunder of my pounding heart, I hear a booming crack, a gunshot. I recognize the sound from a trip to the range with Jake years earlier.

I swing my legs over the side of my perch, thinking in my blind panic to run even though I cannot see. I can’t ignore this intense urge to flee. But my impulse is thwarted by an unknown restraint trapping my left arm, a rope? Panic has me in its grip. I gasp for air to fill my lungs but produce only whimpers and muted pleas.

A loud screech reverberates through the darkness. Rats? Oh, please, no rats! Could this get any worse? Hysterical, I yank relentlessly on the rope tethering me. With each tug, the line cuts deeper into my skin. My arm warms as blood seeps from the gouges, coating my hand and fingers. Behind me, the pounding sound of footsteps startles me. Before I can turn to confront my visitor, I feel the rush of air preceding the impact to the back of my head. A blaze of bright stars then, a different blackness envelopes me.

About the Author

Suzanne was born in Perth Western Australia and as a young adult, grew up in the small country town of Tom Price, situated in the outback of Western Australia. Her current home is in Perth with her husband, two daughters and cat Abby.

Suzanne has a Bachelor of Science Degree, majoring in Sports Science. Her interests include watching movies, particularly sci- fi, travelling, photography and reading. She also enjoys going to the occasional comic book convention!

Like the young women in her stories, Suzanne has had the opportunity to experience many exciting adventures in her life so far including being part of the Australian Army Reserves, climbing to Mt Everest base camp, descending into one of the pyramids at Giza in Egypt, flying in a hot air balloon over the Valley of the Kings, parachuting from a plane at 12000 feet in York and sitting on the edge of an active volcano on Tanna island in Vanuatu.

Suzanne is a member of the Society of children’s book writers and illustrators and the Australian Society of Authors. Her published works include; The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket, a pirate adventure story for children published by Silvergum Publishing and Seventeen, a YA dystopian adventure story published by Creativia Publishing.

Her novel, Seventeen, came about as she wanted to write a story for young adults, that featured two sisters having to survive in a world, that was suddenly vastly different from one they had grown up in. One without adults or any rules. This was a scenario that her own two teenage daughters would often discuss and theorise about at the dinner table. She wanted to set the story in Australia, somewhere that is quite isolated and a unique setting for most dystopian stories.

My Review

5 Stars

Charlotte, Lotty, is twelve years old and has just left the miserable orphanage Sevenoaks home for children. She is sent to work for Mr. and Mrs. Harrison as a lady’s maid. Later that same day she finds herself aboard the Dorchester along with Mrs. Harrison’s little dog Mr. Jacks. Lotty’s responsibilities are to watch Mr. Jacks. But then tragedy strikes and she finds herself and Mr. Jacks shipwrecked on an island, but not just any island, a pirate island and those pirates and not happy to see her.

Lotty is a tough girl but she has to be to survive Sevenoaks. I love how she has a great attitude and is willing to go do things instead of looking for a hero to protect her. Of course she finds herself in one heck of an adventure when she stumbles upon the pirates but she also find out more about herself.

This is a wonderful book and great for mid grade readers to adults. There is a great cast of characters, a wonderful land, and plenty of adventure and excitement. This is the second book of Suzanne Lowe’s that I have read. Seventeen was a blast to read and so was The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket. I hope that Suzanne is planning on writing another book about Lotty’s adventures. I would love to read it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

I would like to thank Rachel’s Random Resources for the opportunity to read and share this book.
