“Seventeen-year-old Amber Borden has a lousy sense of direction—so lousy that she takes a wrong turn when returning from her near-death experience. She ends up in the body of the most popular girl in school, who has just tried to commit suicide. Can a girl who can’t even navigate the halls of Halsey High discover the secrets of her new identity and find her way back to her own life?”
That’s the set-up for the American Library Association 2009 Popular Paperback for Young Adults title this morning’s latest additions to our 300+ Kindle Free Book Alert listings, but we think there will be plenty of grown-up citizens of Kindle Nation who will give it a read too….
What could be scarier than retreating to the safest, quietest spot you know, only to be stalked by a crazed killer?
“…Joan Hall Hovey is a female Stephen King… a stunning, multi-layered, modern-day gothic, told with the unforgettable style and grace of a true master of suspense…” –Rendezvous Magazine

Here’s the set-up:
WHAT IF EVIL VISITED THE ONE PLACE WHERE YOU FEEL THE MOST SAFE?
Following the breakup of her marriage, Rachael retreats to the old beachhouse in Jenny’s Cove, where she once lived with her grandmother. It is the one place where she had always felt safe and loved. Devasted and lost, Rachael longs for the simplicity of her childhood.
But Jenny’s Cove has changed. From the moment of Rachael’s arrival, a man watches. He has already killed, and mercilessly will do so again. Soon Rachael becomes a target for a vicious predator whose own dark and twisted past forms a deadly bond between them.
And sets her on a collision course with a crazed killer.
–Cynthia Penn, MIDWEST REVIEW
“Rachael is a magnetically likeable heroine, and Peter Gardner fills his muscular frame well as her sleuthing counterpart concerned about his student. Rachael’s transformation from walking wounded to feisty survivor will leave you cheering.”
–Kristin J. Johnson, author and Vine Voice
“… Joan Hall Hovey has penned as good a thriller as I have ever read…a superb tale of terror and suspense that puts her right up there with the likes of Sandford and Patterson…”
–Ingrid Taylor, Small Press Review
I enjoy voice over work and playing the piano. I also tutor aspiring writers for a well-known writer’s school. I live in New Brunswick, Canada in a modest home on the banks of the beautiful Kennebecasis River with my wonderful hubby, and sweet dog Scamp.
