She saved his life. Now he‘ll never let her go.

A detective looks for cracks in the surface of cold cases, and has become an expert on how murderers slip up and give themselves away. She has everything under control in balancing her life and work, until one afternoon she walks into a department store and is forced to make a terrible choice: to save one life, she will have to take another.

She is hailed as a hero, but she doesn’t feel like one. Steeped in guilt, and on a leave of absence from work, she’s numb, even to her husband and daughters, until she connects with the man whose life she saved. She soon realizes that he isn’t who he says he is. In fact, the tall man is seemingly a ghost using a false name, one who will set off a terrifying game of cat and mouse, threatening her and the people she loves most.

On sale through July 14th (or until we sell out) you won't want to miss this mind-bending thriller that will keep readers guessing until the very end, with the most shockingly twisted reveal!

This box is expected to ship in late July and will be paired with three customized and exclusive gifts to bring this story to life.

We are so pleased to share our July Young Adult hint - Written in the Stars! ✨

A charming YA debut told in dual perspectives featuring a girl who’s determined to prove her star chart wrong and a boy who's eager to prove himself to those around him.

According to her astrology-obsessed mother, one Desi teen's upcoming senior year will be a total failure. To make matters worse, she’s also the victim of a family curse that sentences her to a happily ever after with her first boyfriend whether she likes it or not.

Her childhood best friend is also at the mercy of the stars, but he isn’t complaining. His astrological reading destines him for success and he resolves to use his year of good luck to impress his absentee parents and our leading lady, both of whom have rejected him on multiple occasions. So when she offers him the opportunity to be her relationship lab rat, he can’t help but agree. To him, it feels like the universe is finally granting his wishes.

As their prophecies slowly become true and real feelings emerge between the two childhood best friends, she faces an impossible choice. She must decide if destroying her family curse in an act of self-determination is worth breaking his heart.

A charming tale of self-discovery, family, embracing your culture, and accepting the love given to you in your life, even if it comes from unexpected places, this story is one we cannot wait to bring to life for our readers!

On sale through July 14th (or until we sell out), subscribe today while the stars are aligned! Boxes are expected to ship in late July.

Potential triggers in the July Young Adult box include minor scenes involving bullying.
