    An Entertaining Thriller

    For Diane Mayfield, the last few months of her life have been spent trying to keep her children, Michelle and Anthony, on an even keel. After her husband was sentenced to prison for his part in the financial upheaval of a company who cooked its books, she's been the sole parent and money-maker in a family that once had it all. Her position with KEY News as a correspondent for its Hourglass newsmagazine forces her to give up the family's vacation to the Grand Canyon and instead haul her kids and her 17-years younger sister, Emily, to the New Jersey seashore town of Ocean Grove. Her assignment? Interview Leslie Patterson, a woman who police believe 'cried wolf' about her recent disappearance. Leslie has a past that includes therapies for anorexia and harming herself physically, and the police are reluctant to take her claims seriously. Leslie states that she was abducted by an unknown attacker, and although not raped, was forced to dance with the man over a period of days before a security guard found her, bound and gagged, on the grounds of the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association. Orignally a religion-based commune type establishment, the Association meets every year on Ocean Grove's shore to spen the summer in their tents. But as another girl disappears, both the local police and Diane start to believe that something more sinister is at work than a trouble young woman staging her own disappearance. As Diane delves deeper and deeper into the mystery, her own family becomes a target for the disturbed individuals that are harassing the tranquility of this once calm sea-side town. Mary Jane Clark has deftly penned another entertaining thriller. Her characters are all true-to-life and believable, and will have you turning pages until you figure out the mystery.

    |The Weather Report| <br />

    <br />

    A light gray tabby shecat pads in and announces, &quot;Here is one of the perks of the pact clans! This is The Weather Report! Every week on Sunday or Monday I plan to post what the weather will be like for the week. Remember a week equals a season for the pact clans so weather will vary greatly each week. But the cool part is that pact clan members are able to cast a vote here about what they think the next week's weather should be like. I encourage you to be as creative as possible. Think about temperature, precipitation, natural disasters, ect. that we can then have effect all pact clans in varying degrees. This feature is here to make this rp realistic and more fun! Once the week is over I will count up the weather votes and pick the one that received the most agreement. I will then proceed to tell everyone here what the weather will be like for the week. Also if a natural disaster is decided on, at some point in the week I will post it at each clan for everyone to react to. This is also where battles will be voted on. Since it is often hard to make battles a reality, we vote on which clans should have them here. A vote must include two or more clans that should battle and a motive for the battle. If a motive is not included then that vote will not be counted. At least five cats from the clans battling must agree that the battle should take place. As with the weather, once the week is over I will count up the votes and post the results in The Weekly Report as well as here. If by Saturday of the next week the battle voted upon has not taken place then I will contact the clans involved to discuss why the battle has not happened. Hopefully with this voting system battles can become more of a regular thing. So make sure to check back here weekly for the weather, battles, and to cast your vote!&quot; <br />

    Nice read but tons of typos!

    I'm currently reading this book and enjoying the story, but the number of typos in the e-book is amazing! Doesn't anyone proof these things? I am figuring out what words are supposed to be by their context in the sentence.

    Hard to put down

    This book had me hooked right away. As soon as I thought I had figured out who had done it, something happened and I changed my mind!

    Buy it!

    Great book - saw it at the bargain price and glad I took a chance! I will leave the plot summary to the reviewers for you to read-but shame on one of the comments that gives away the ending....
