Rating: 5


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?

Do You Like Romance Books?

  • Yeah, I love 'em! It's all I ever read.
  • Only if they have a good plot.
  • I'll read them every once and a while.
  • No way. I'm more of a Harry Potter fan.

So, I had dinner and now I have to take my art classes, and that might take a while. But then my mom wants me to watch a movie with her, so I'll probably do that afterwards. By then it'll be late and I wont have time to post until tomorrow. But tomorrow I wont be able to post till probably after 2:00 or 3:00... I have a birthday party for my cousin Fiona and it starts at noon. Besides all that, maybe in that time you can make a piece or post a piece? I'd like to see your style of artwork, it's probably better then mine, at least! Hahahaha!!! Thanks!  PS: Didn't actually catch you name! (:
