[2014 WATTY AWARDS WINNER]
[FEATURED WATTPAD NOVEL!]

Small towns talk, especially when a long-time resident dies mysteriously on the mountain bordering the sleepy village of Bon Resi. Sybil Deerborn, like any curious person, wants to know why a quiet older man who used to be a thriving member of the community was targeted. What makes it more troublesome is the carefully, yet disturbingly planned out threats against her life when she begins to investigate.

With the appearance of an old acquaintance right around the time of the murder, who only seems to stir up trouble with every breath he takes, Sybil begins to wonder if maybe the murders are much closer to home than she anticipated. All of her evidence thus far points to one person, but no matter how close she gets to the truth, something leads her to believe there's more to this than what meets the eye.

Throwing herself into the midst of a murder investigation maybe wasn't the best idea, but what does Sybil have to lose? One event after another, digging up secrets that were nothing but hearsay, Sybil realizes that perhaps she unearthed a secret far too dangerous for even her liking.

But Sybil Deerborn is determined, and as some would say very stubborn. She won't stop until everything comes to light, even if it means risking her life to do so.

I love your trailer and your preview. If it was a movie I'd go see it but for now I guess I'll just read it. lol
Trailer is amazing... Looking forward with mystery in hand.  Exceptions are high.

Thanks for the comment on my forum post. Apparently, you are literally an expert; being an award winning thriller author and all. I just read the first two chapters of Deerborn. I'm hooked.
