In Three Lakes, Maine there are more secrets than stop signs. 

Hometown girl Chloe St. Cyr ought to know.  Fifteen years ago, her friend Penny Pease vanished, taking just a few clothes in a backpack and leaving her mother a note saying she was running away. Twelve-year-old Chloe had chosen to believe that story. Now working as a reporter for the Three Lakes Morning Star,  Chloe discovers evidence that leads her to question what really happened that long-ago November afternoon. As she begins to sniff out the truth behind Penny's disappearance, Chloe finds herself in deep water. Someone wants to keep the old stories buried and forgotten, and that person will do anything to prevent Chloe from FINDING PENNY.

And while you are waiting for me to update with new chapters and craving a completed mystery with a dose of romance and fashion, check out DISGUISED. Written in 2015, it went to #15 on the hot list, and was chosen by the movie UNFRIENDED for their reading list.
