Zoe's cousin Emma thinks she's the recipient of some sick joke
when an old boyfriend she thought dead shows up on the internet. Can Zoe solve
the mystery that's causing Emma so much pain when her attraction to the town
bad boy is so distracting?
When Zoe Mack moves in with her grandparents to start college, she's thrown
into more mystery than she bargained for. Her cousin, Emma, is terrorized by a
stalker who breaks into her house and leaves a photo-shopped image of Emma
hanging from a tree. Nothing is as it seems and Emma soon learns that even the
man she thinks she can trust is suspect.
Zoe can't wait to reunite with Nate, the bad boy who doesn't talk about his
feelings much, but the passionate kiss he gave her last summer had to have
meant something. When she arrives back in town and discovers that he's in
trouble with the law, she must take matters into her own hands in order to
clear his name. She has her hands full with a needy Emma, a cop who gives her
the creeps, and Nate, the guy she desperately wants to call her own. Can Zoe
solve the mystery, clear Nate's name, and make him fall in love with her?
K. Dawn, how did this story come to you?
Sometimes I get the strangest ideas! I love a good mystery and I love romance, but you don't find the two together very often. Also, there are very few books available with college-age characters. I pitched the idea of combining all of the above to Desert Breeze and the rest is history.
Tell us about the journey to getting this book published.
I had already published several books with Desert Breeze when they opened a young adult line. I'm excited that they liked the idea for this new series.
Tell me three things about yourself that would surprise your readers.
I own two hairless Chinese Crested dogs.
I love sour things....pickles, lemons, sour candy.
I used to ride a Harley, but gave it up in order to have more time to write. (My husband always wanted to stay out way too long and take the scenic route home. He still has his bike, but I don't miss mine at all.)
What are you working on now and what's next for you?
I just finished the edits on my April release, Shattered Identity, which is the sequel to Mistaken Identity. I'm now working on the second book in the Zoe Mack series.
