Trade Paperback, 212 pages
This debut novel from Amy Ray has a sometimes simple tone to the writing that will likely mature with successive books but that did not detract from the fact that it was excellently paced and plotted with twists and turns that surprised even me.
You will likely be hearing a lot more from her in the future as she already has a considerable grasp on the mystery/thriller genre and how to keep the reader engaged.

From the Back Flap:
Denying the past proves deadly for BK Hartshaw and Trevor Mayhew in this gripping noir novel where nothing is as it seems.
BK is a rising star at a public relations firm, and tonight's charity ball should be a high point in her career. But a closely guarded secret threatens to destroy her chance for happiness with the only man she's ever loved... a man who is also hiding a deadly secret.
Trevor has tried to put the past behind him, pretending it never happened. But the conniving father he's been running from for years has finally found him-and is determined to settle the score once and for all.
BK and Trevor's deeply buried secrets are about to catch up with them-and everyone they know and love. Who will pay the ultimate price for their dangerous denials?
Enter to win this awesome debut thriller!
Amy Ray lives near the short but picturesque seacoast in New Hampshire with her husband and daughter. Before becoming a writer, she owned an old fashioned five and dime store where, in addition to regular priced merchandise, she had a display of items that actually retailed for five or ten cents each. When not writing, she has rediscovered the joy of tap dancing.
Dangerous Denial is her first novel. Her short story "All's Fair" will be published later this year in Love Free or Die, the fourth book in the New Hampshire Pulp Fiction Series.
