In 1985, high school senior Jake Weathers stumbles upon a clue to a decades-old mystery…

The day after their graduation in 1961, Kate Delisle and Trish Hawthorne left Weston, Massachusettts and were never seen again. When he discovers a note Trish wrote to Kate the day before their disappearance, Jake decides it’s his destiny to solve the oldest cold case in the state. He’s fascinated by the story, because sometimes he wants to disappear too, and leave his father in the rear view mirror.

Jake needs help in his investigation, and reluctantly turns to the annoying and spoiled Julie St. Hilaire…

Julie would have been Trish’s niece and has the inside track to information about the reclusive, wealthy Hawthorne family. As they chase down leads, the personality clash between Jake and Julie simmers down, and Jake finds it impossible to ignore the growing attraction between them.

Jake and Julie find more than they bargained for…Jake suspects Kate and Trish had been living a lie and hiding dangerous secrets. As the mystery unravels, he and Julie start to dread what they might discover about the fate of the missing girls.

Some cold cases should not be solved…This could be one of them.

In Plain Sight by Senayda Pierre

The author has a way with emotions. Lovely read!

Love stories with legend and spirit animals... This story is more about true mates, destiny, choices and the impact of family history and education on our way of dealing with life.
It was really a cool awesome read.

This is a stunning heartbreaking love story of April and Jonah. The story takes place in Baltimore, Maryland.  April, is a 15-year old girl, who is started her sophomore year without her best friend who has relocated to another school. April is your typical insecure high school girl and she loves to play piano. On her first day of school, she meets the new kid, Jonah. Jonah is also interested in art and loves to paint. These two passions and their insecurities bring April and Jonah together. During their relationship, April starts to see subtle changes in Jonah but is reluctant to admit it until Jonah does something no one can ignore.

I was so impressed with April and the way she loved Jonah and stood faithfully by him at such a young age. I was so proud of the way she handled her school peers as they tease and torment her about Jonah.


This poignant story was a true testament to mental illness and the effects that is has on loved ones, but there is also an underlying powerful story of how one person can help others with the stigma associated with mental illness.  It is written with authentic truths and tragedies from the prospective of those who suffer from mental illness.

It was a truly touching and educational read.

I give it four out of four doves.


Thank you to NetGalley for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. My opinions are my own and reflect my experience in reading the book.
