Book 1: Premonitions
Life hasn’t been good to Gracie. Her father left when she was 2, and her mother recently passed away. To top it all off, Gracie has premonitions.
Now a teenager, Gracie lives with her Aunt Shay and her cousin Diego. But she still feels like an outsider, like she doesn’t quite belong. And to make matters worse, her best friend Emily has gone missing. Emily is not the type to run away. Someone must have kidnapped her. Gracie has premonitions about Emily’s whereabouts; she sees a boat and a waterfall, and she knows that the kidnapper is someone Emily thought she could trust.
While the police investigate different leads, Gracie follows her visions. But going after Emily might not be such a safe idea. Because now the person who kidnapped Emily is after Gracie.
Book 2: Disappearance
When Gracie eats lunch at a seaside restaurant with her cousin, his girlfriend and a group of obnoxious jocks, one of the boys decides to dive off the restaurant's railing into the water. Gracie knows something bad will happen. But it’s not what she expects. The terrified boy finds a man’s dead body in the water. And so the murder investigation begins.
If discovering a dead body isn’t staggering enough, Gracie finds her father waiting at her house. How can he just show up after all these years? He left her and her mother and now he suddenly wants a relationship? But what if his sudden appearance is connected to the dead body?
