AbandonedAbandoned by MHR Geer

It should have been enough. In this newest Anne Wilson thriller following the author’s debut “Assumed,” our protagonist had the perfect boyfriend and the perfect Caribbean villa. It should have been her happily-ever-after. But her past overshadows her sunny life. On an impulse, she ditches all of it and flies to Guadeloupe. A new island. A fresh start.

 But starting over is impossible with so many loose ends.

 Only twenty-four hours after Anne arrives in Guadeloupe, Sandy’s friend hands her a backpack full of cash, and Anne is plunged back into Sandy’s world. When someone breaks into her motel room, Anne goes on the run. Someone knows about the money. Someone wants her off the island. She has to decide: Keep running or risk everything to protect her perfect life? “My characters end up with my flaws, and I get to work through solutions. It’s like beta-testing better versions of myself,” the author says. Purchase at https://bit.ly/3tMADcp.
