Direct Strike

Lorelei Buckley. Lyrical (, $5.99 e-book (222p) ISBN 978-1-61650-367-3
Buckley takes readers on a pulse-pounding suspense ride with a touch of romance. After Zoey Hawthorne’s little boy is killed in a horrific Ferris wheel accident, Zoey spirals into a deep depression, developing an addiction to multiple pharmaceuticals. When she inherits a large piece of property from her great-uncle Amos, she leaves behind her painful memories in Chicago and starts over again in Colorado. What Zoey doesn’t realize is that there is a 50-year-old mystery to be solved, and the ghost haunting Amos’s home wants her to solve it. A lightning strike gives her horrifying visions, and Zoey—along with her ex-husband, Mitch; his clairvoyant girlfriend, Sterling; and Zoey’s new younger boyfriend, Lance—sets out to find the truth. While the sex scenes between Zoey and Lance are hot, most of the story is given to solving the intriguing mystery, with a twist at the end readers won’t see coming. (Apr.)
