A crossover novel:
The Ivy Newman Story

The riveting backstory of Holly and Ivy Newman from Brown and de Luca Book 7, GIRL BLUE.

Since the day her baby sister was taken, Holly’s mind hasn’t been the same. PTSD, panic attacks, nightmares and blocked memories have plagued her ever since. And now they’ve returned.

Hard-edged Detective Vince O’Malley’s most recent case penetrated even his protective shell. Ordered to take time off to recover, he can’t let go, and on his own, follows the clues to Holly’s small upstate NY town.

His presence stirs ghosts from the past, shadows of a little girl lost, the suspicions of some tight-lipped locals with secrets to hide, and more than that inside Holly’s fragile mind and untouched heart.

While neither Rachel de Luca nor Mason Brown appear in this novel, it is crucial backstory to major characters who populate the pages of Brown and de Luca 7, GIRL BLUE. Those characters include Holly Newman, Chief Vince O'Mally, Ivy Newman and Reginald D'Voe. You will not want to miss this important layer of story.
