Shadowlands by Kate Brian
Publication date: January 8th 2013Publisher: Hyperion
Rory Miller had one chance to fight back and she took it. Rory survived… and the serial killer who attacked her escaped. Now that the infamous Steven Nell is on the loose, Rory must enter the witness protection with her father and sister, Darcy, leaving their friends and family without so much as a goodbye.
Starting over in a new town with only each other is unimaginable for Rory and Darcy. They were inseparable as children, but now they can barely stand each other. As the sisters settle in to Juniper Landing, a picturesque vacation island, it seems like their new home may be just the fresh start they need. They fall in with a group of beautiful, carefree teens and spend their days surfing, partying on the beach, and hiking into endless sunsets. But just as they’re starting to feel safe again, one of their new friends goes missing. Is it a coincidence? Or is the nightmare beginning all over again?
I LOVE mysteries and this one sounds brilliant! The main character Rory already seems like a girl I can get behind and root for. She must be strong to fight off a serial killer and escape. Add to that, there's complicated relationship between Rory and her sister. I really want to know what's behind that drama. I don't really see anything mentioned about a romance, but a girl can hope. Plus, I just love that cover, gorgeous!! I'm dying to get my hands on this.
