“Smart, stylish . . . Manon is portrayed with an irresistible blend of sympathy and snark. By the time she hits bottom, professionally and privately, we’re entirely caught up in her story.” —The New York Times Book Review

Sunday Times Bestseller

At thirty-nine, Manon Bradshaw is a devoted and respected member of the Cambridgeshire police force, and though she loves her job, what she longs for is a personal life. Single and distant from her family, she wants a husband and children of her own. One night, after yet another disastrous Internet date, she turns on her police radio to help herself fall asleep—and receives an alert that sends her to a puzzling crime scene.

Edith Hind—a beautiful graduate student at Cambridge University and daughter of the surgeon to the Royal Family—has been missing for nearly twenty-four hours. Her home offers few clues: a smattering of blood in the kitchen, her keys and phone left behind, the front door ajar but showing no signs of forced entry. Manon instantly knows that this case will be big—and that every second is crucial to finding Edith alive.

The investigation starts with Edith’s loved ones: her attentive boyfriend, her reserved best friend, her patrician parents. As the search widens and press coverage reaches a frenzied pitch, secrets begin to emerge about Edith’s tangled love life and her erratic behavior leading up to her disappearance. With no clear leads, Manon summons every last bit of her skill and intuition to close the case, and what she discovers will have shocking consequences not just for Edith’s family but for Manon herself.

Suspenseful and keenly observed, Missing, Presumed is a brilliantly twisting novel of how we seek connection, grant forgiveness, and reveal the truth about who we are.

#1 Amazon Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

The Butterfly Novels, including:

AND BY THE WAY (Butterfly #1)

Alex: “Six months ago, I lost my mum to cancer and my dad, ‘The Rockstar’, to work. Now, I don’t do close. That way I won’t get hurt.

My friend Rachel won’t let give up on me. And that’s a problem. So is David McFadden, a guy in my class who says he wants to help. Six months ago, he could have but didn’t. Now, it’s too late. The last person I’m going to listen to is David McFadden. When he calls me Ice Queen, I’ll show him just how right he is.”

AND FOR YOUR INFORMATION (Butterfly #2)

Sarah: “My friends, Alex and Rachel are minted. My money runs out. All the time.

After Alex’s mum died, Rachel knew how to help. It made them closer. They don’t mean to leave me out. And I try not to mind.

I have a sort-of boyfriend. We don’t talk about stuff that matters. But it’s better than nothing, right?

I’m not even going to mention my family.

Shoplifting wasn’t on my list of things to do before I die but it makes me feel amazing. In control. Until I’m caught. And my life, weirdly, begins.”

AND ACTUALLY (Butterfly #3)

Rachel: “When I first met Alex and Sarah they treated me like I was normal. A human being. They actually liked me – though it took a while to trust that. I’ve never told them about my life before I met them. I wanted a new one. A fresh start.

Now, they think I’m the strong one, the one with all the answers, the guru. No clue why.

When I get a part in a TV drama, it’s all my dreams come true. It’ll also bring me face-to-face with someone from my past. But I’m a different person now. And I’m sure Rebecca is too. No matter what, there’s no way I’m going to let my past destroy my future.”

“The Beast of Barcroft is a page-turner, seizing the reader and demanding he keep his nose buried in the book until that last page is reached.” —New York Journal of Books

Ben McKelvie believes he’s moving up in the world when he and his fiancée buy a house in the cushy Washington, D.C., suburb of Barcroft. Instead, he’s moving down—way down—thanks to Madeleine Roux, the crazy neighbor whose vermin-infested property is a permanent eyesore and looming hazard to public health.

First, Ben’s fiancée leaves him; then, his dog dies, apparently killed by a predator drawn into Barcroft by Madeleine’s noxious menagerie. But the worst is yet to come for Ben, for he’s not dealing with any ordinary wild animal. This killer is something much, much worse. Something that couldn’t possibly exist—in this world.

Now, as a devilish creature stalks the locals, Ben resolves to take action. With some grudging assistance from a curator at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and the crackpot theories of a self-styled cryptozoologist, he discovers the sinister truth behind the attacks, but knowing the Beast of Barcroft and stopping it are two different animals.

Livy Green always thought going away to college in Los Angeles was what she wanted. Finally, she’d be able to get away from Stratford with its ridiculous Shakespeare festival and small-town quirks. Unfortunately, moving away came at a price: saying goodbye to her best friend Hunter—in more ways than one.

Now, two weeks before college graduation, Livy is ready to continue on with her life in Los Angeles as an independent young adult. But when she’s called back to Stratford to see a gravely-ill friend, she suddenly finds herself having to face Hunter and the reasons she left home in the first place.

Remembering her summers growing up in Stratford might be the only way to figure out what she really wants for life after college—that is, if she’s ready to face the truth.

Caity Jones wasted a lot of years waiting for the “two kids, a dog and a white picket fence” dream to come true, but she’s ready to move on now. Letting go of society’s idea of the perfect life, she’s purchased a five-acre property in the small rural town of Willows. She’s determined to live a solitary life and become a writer. And that means staying away from men altogether.

Tom Murray owns and runs the local feed store in Willows. His marriage was a failure but his family is strong, and he can’t imagine a world that didn’t include his three young children. He’s an uncomplicated man, living an uncomplicated life–and he has every intention of keeping it that way.

Both are mature … both have baggage … and both have agendas that don’t include romance.

And then they meet.
