Down an Unknown Road by Emily Senecal

You never know what’s going to change your life. A lucky break, a tragic hour, a chance meeting. And nothing is ever the same again.

For Samantha McLaren, a particular snarky comment from her older sister is the catalyst that impels her to quit her meaningless job and jump headfirst into the unknown. Good friends and luck lead her to Rome, where she accepts the role of assistant to the owner of a contemporary art gallery. A whole new world of opportunity, a chance to start over, to learn a new language and meet new people, to become a better version of herself. It’s everything she could have hoped for.

Except—there’s the curse. Samantha’s predecessor disappeared eight months before, and since then no one has stayed in the position. Of course, it’s all nonsense.

And then there are the rumors. Salacious reports that her charismatic employer is much more than just her boss. There’s the disturbing offer of bribery. The threats when she refuses.

And then there’s a murder…

After getting out of a toxic relationship and into a successful career in web design, Julia Wray is in a great place in her life. Running into her high school friend and former crush Eddie Fung in the supermarket is just another sign that things are looking up.

Except Eddie’s involved with another woman, and Julia’s creepy ex is still hovering around the edges of her social circles. When Eddie asks for Julia’s help with a bizarre family problem, events begin to spiral in disturbing and dangerous ways.

Swept into a dark tangle of fraud, blackmail and murder, Julia and Eddie are far out of their depth—as well as in the hot seat of local gossip. Only by digging deeper, taking risks and trusting each other will they find their way out.

Kindle Edition: $2.99 | Paperback Edition: $11.50

College junior Eva Meade does not want to be a bridesmaid.

Painfully shy and socially inept, she’s well aware that the ability to do Calculus won’t help her navigate a wedding weekend swarming with glamorous celebrities. But her cousin asked her, Eva said yes, and now it’s happening.

Somehow she gets through it, even surviving the embarrassing reality of meeting her celebrity crush, the “sexiest man of the year,” British movie star Matthew Kean. And then life throws Eva a devastating curve ball, a year of pain and isolation, which changes everything she thought about herself.

From stepping onto a ferry in Southern California, to stumbling into first love in Europe, to claiming her own best life, Eva finds that what matters most is being true to the person you are, and knowing what you want. Even if what you want isn’t possible.
