Kiss of the Sun
A Girl in the Maze ThrillereBook - 2016
In a haunting novel of psychological suspense from the author of The Girl in the Maze ("A Southern Gothic thriller with a twisty plot and echoes of Tana French."—Dianne Emley), a gifted young woman battles her own mind . . . and finds that some voices will never be silenced. Following her diagnosis as a schizophrenic, Martha Covington has been easing herself back into her quiet life on a small island off the Georgia coast. The trouble is, Martha's research into local healing roots has earned her an unfounded, and frankly unwelcome, reputation as a psychic. But when an elderly couple from Atlanta tracks her down, desperate for any sign of their missing grandson, Peavy, Martha confronts a terrifying possibility: that the line between intuition and insanity may not be as clear as she'd like to believe. First comes a spine-tingling vision that feels too real to be imagined. Then Martha receives a message in her dreams that the boy may yet be alive. Despite her therapist's insistence that it's all in her head, Martha travels to Atlanta to investigate Peavy's mysterious disappearance, where she is reunited with handsome law student Jarrell Humphries. A trail of cryptic clues leads the pair deep into a heart of a dangerous conspiracy whose members will stop at nothing—including murder—to protect their secrets.Praise for Kiss of the Sun"[This] stunning follow-up to The Girl in the Maze . . . will take your breath away."—It's About the Book "Filled with suspense . . .
