Missing personal items.

Viola’s never been one to give her trust easily, but she’ll need to trust in Riel if she’s going to survive her stalker. Because she’s not fighting for a new life anymore—she’s fighting to stay alive.
Viola may have stretched the facts to get the prestigious scholarship at a private school in Florida. She leaves home in hope of having the life her mom could not just give her. If she does well with this scholarship she will be able to go to the school of her choice. She has no time for distractions which includes her hot mentor Riel. She does her best to resist them but it seems futile. Tack on his cute little sister and she can’t just stay away. There are a few people who seem to not like Viola and her new friends. She has this strange feeling that she is being watched, little did she know that it is more than just a feeling.
In an Oyster Shell – This is a thriller that will give you goosebumps and leave you on the edge of your seat.
The Pearls – The premise of this book was riveting. To alternate between Viola and her stalker was deliciously creepy. I don’t often like getting into the heads of a psychopath but it is done so well in this book it adds to the appeal.
The characters will leave you wanting more. They were distinctive and very interesting. I liked the combination of Viola, Riel and her sister. They made a cute little family. I liked that they were brought together under the harshest of circumstances and that is what keeps them together. The supporting characters added depth. There was not a character in this book that didn’t hold their own.
I’m torn between talking about the suspense or the romance. Since I always talk about romance, I am going to choose suspense. It is one of the best thrillers I have read in a very long time. The ending is very unpredictable and shocking. After reading the stalker’s thoughts you’ll be blown away by who it has been all along.
The Sand – It was a good book.
