Lost in Owl Creek

The most wonderful time of the year is about to become her worst nightmare.

The countdown is on for the release of Lost in Owl Creek, the final book in the Owl Creek series! This one took some extra time to make sure all the details and emotion hit just right, and I think you'll agree it's worth the wait.

It's a bittersweet feeling sending the final installment of this story out into the world knowing that it's the last time I'll be visiting the town of Owl Creek, but I'm absolutely thrilled to share the conclusion of Val and Joel's story with you.

Preorder today and you can take advantage of a limited time opportunity to claim an exclusive Owl Creek sticker pack commissioned specifically for the release of this final book. Because no party is complete without a little swag to celebrate!
