Suspense

From the award-winning author of In Their Blood, comes Someone's Watching, a thriller about family, commitment, and choices with devastating consequences. Publishers Weekly called the book, "shiver-rich." Booklist said the plot twists are "stunningly well-handled."

The following is a brief description of the book from www.sharonpotts.com to be released just in time for the Festival.

Twenty-something Robbie Ivy wants to keep her life as simple and commitment-free as possible. Who needs a high-pressure career, a relationship, or a family anyway?

But Robbie's life gets inextricably complicated when her estranged father shows up with a shocking revelation about two teenage girls who disappeared in South Beach.

One of the missing girls is Robbie's sister Kate—a sister Robbie never knew existed.

Unwilling to reestablish family ties, Robbie is hesitant to get involved—until the body of her sister's friend washes up in Indian Creek. Desperate to find her missing sister, Robbie immerses herself in the unfamiliar world to which Kate may have fallen prey: the sexy, sizzling South Beach club scene. Swept up in a corrupt, destructive society, Robbie searches for a cold-blooded killer in the hottest South Beach hotspots.

But in this see-and-be-seen world, everyone is dressed to kill, people are dying for a chance to get beyond the velvet rope. . . and someone is watching.

Ms. Potts will be appearing on Friday, April 8th at 10 a.m. with authors Deborah Sharp and Terrell Griffin in the Mount Dora Community Building and again at 6:30 p.m. at the Author's Reception.  She will be speaking on the element of suspense on Saturday at 9 a.m. at the W. T. Bland Public Library.
