We’re the first to admit we’re still big fans of YA books and this new one—with captivating characters and a powerful romance—should not be missed. Even though Beth’s home life is far from perfect, she’d rather be with her troubled mother than sent away. But when she ends up living with an aunt who doesn’t want her and going to a new school where she doesn’t quite fit in, she meets Ryan—the one guy who might be able to save her.
Nothing is what it seems in this intense debut novel. It’s 1982 and Cold War fears are still very much present. Ten year old best friends Sarah and Jenny write letters to the Soviet Union asking for peace. When Jenny gets a response and an invite to visit the USSR, she becomes an international sensation—and Sarah is left feeling left out. Their relationship is never the same, and sadly, Jenny is killed in a plane crash a few years later. Sarah tries to move on with her life, but 10 years on, as she prepares to graduate college, she receives a mysterious letter from Moscow insinuating that Jenny is alive. And so Sarah heads to Moscow in a desperate attempt to learn the truth.
Kate Adams owes a lot to her colleague Daisy, who helped her get a job as a research scientist and find her faith again. The two are on the verge of discovering a natural cure for depression when Daisy is found dead. The police rule it a suicide but Kate doesn’t believe it, and she’ll do anything to learn what really happened the night Daisy died. No one will stand in her way, especially local detective Tom Parker—no matter how strong an attraction they may share.
