SO excited to share my new YA novel with you!
The Joker's Revenge
A series of sinister pranks has everyone on edge. It is the summer of '72, and DARCI MILLER, 17, is the new secretary at Camp Chickadee, a lakeside summer camp in Maine for girls ages 8 - 14.
While holding the same position 18 years earlier, Darci's mother was attacked by HANK, a captivating young man with a secret alter ego---the Joker, an evil rapist who preys on young women. When Darci discovers that the current pranks are tied to her late mother's incident, she is determined to uncover the truth. She is also smitten with RYKER, her sexy new boss, who has a contentious yet complicated relationship with BRYNN, the camp owners' beautiful but spoiled daughter.
When hot dogs explode during the welcome campfire cookout, a note is discovered indicating the prankster is after something valuable. DEANGELO, the head chef, believes they are after his million-dollar invention that removes calories from food. Every prank has a clue involving playing cards, along with a joker written in red. Suspicion swirls around GUNNAR, Brynn's on-again-off-again hot-shot boyfriend and his hell-raising buddies.
When Darci finds her own life in danger, will she retreat to her timid ways or overcome her fears and face the danger head on? A page-turner with twists and turns right to the end!
