It's Tuesday . . . time for . . .
Today I'm featuring a current read, Chloe Cates is Missing by Mandy McHugh. The excerpt shared is from a hardcover edition borrowed from the library.
First Chapter: Jennifer
I stare at the numbers. Surely, there's been some mistake. I hit refresh and watch the graphs slowly rematerialize on the screen.
Nope. No change. The numbers stay the same.
We missed our thousand-dollar bonus by fourteen lousy clicks.
What do you think? Would you continue reading?
When Chloe Cates, the 13-year-old star of her mother Jennifer's parenting blog goes missing, a frantic search begins. What happened to Chloe? Was she kidnapped? Did she leave of her own free will? The media-obsessed Jennifer, who is used to controlling her daughter's life, is ill-prepared to deal with the secrets that are uncovered and threaten to dismantle her carefully-curated existence.
I'm enjoying this fast-paced page turner!
