Reaching Out (published February 2020)

An exciting mix of crime, paranormal and romance this is the perfect young adult read. Stevie’s best friend, Louisa, has been involved in a suspicious road accident. To add to the horror, she also discovers her old enemy, Tom Danby, has escaped from prison. Could the two be connected? The police don’t seem to think so, but only a week later, Stevie and her cousin Timothy are kidnapped. Her Uncle Harry is contacted by the abductors. They demand £500,000 for their safe return and give warning not to involve the police.

Harry and the family rally together to find the ransom, but when the plot fails to go according to plan, things become even more sinister.
