"Edwards [creates] amazing fantasy worlds that the reader becomes completely engrossed in." Goodreads

Her beginning may be our end . . .

Deep in the humid Mississippi bayou, a half-wild child is dragged from the murky waters. She has no memories, no family and is covered in mysterious markings. Adopted by the policeman who rescued her, Luce Boudreau follows him onto the force, determined to prove herself in the eyes of those who are still suspicious.
However, there's more of a battle ahead than Luce could possibly imagine. She may be an orphan without a past, but no one - including Luce herself - could ever be prepared for the truth of her dark, powerful destiny . .

"Well-plotted fantasy continues to engage the reader with its intriguing characters, heart-pounding action, suspenseful intrigue and subtle romance." RT Book Reviews

" The world building is fresh ... The characters are well-drawn and easy to root for. And the romance really hits the spot." Red Hot Books

About the Author

Every life is like a story.

Hailey's beginning was a good one. She was raised in a small town in Alabama with two siblings. Her parents have been married for 32 years, proof that humans really can mate for life.

Her middle is pretty good, too. She met her husband on January 11, 1999. Their first date was on February 5, 1999. He proposed to her nine days later on Valentine's Day. They married two months after that. He says it was fate. She's just happy he found her.

Hailey's end is unwritten, but she has the love of her family and the support of her friends.

That is the best happily ever after she can imagine.

She loves to hear from readers. Visit her website to find out how to say hello and for all the info on upcoming books:

I absolutely loved it. It started off a lot like any mystery novel and changed pretty quick. I was certainly surprised at all the twist and turns it took. Getting the 2nd one on pay day. Can hardly wait to find out what happens. Thanks for writing this book.

The open had all the makings of a good southern supernatural mystery then it made a quick turn into a procedural with a missing girl then another.....I almost gave up when I thought the next turn was going to be into a romance. Glad I didn't because the plot twist was ? and I had no idea that it was going to be so damn good, I can't recall the last time a plot change threw me off like this then goes about solving the 2 crimes and lining up the next book. I am immediately getting that book!

Ms. Edwards hasn’t failed me yet. The first book of her Foundling series has me hooked. It was not what I expected at all. No spoilers! Likable characters that I can be invested in is part of the reason I love Edwards’ books. Interesting storylines that finish with more to go but no ‘cliffhangers ‘ to annoy me.

I was pleasantly surprised by the interesting storyline and the author's quirky sense of humor. I was very surprised by the turn of events in the story and instead of dulling my interest, only sharpened it.

Inventive, original, wholly unique novel that keeps you guessing.

book keeps you wanting to read. It is the greatest ever written but the main character is written to where you msay no agree with her but you can see that is her character and not just written because the author wanted it. the character has depth. just as I felt the story needed to switch gears it did . I never felt like it stalled.
