Because it's February and sometimes we just need to write love letters to our friends. I shared this with my warrior sister and friend last night. Feel free to share with your warrior sister or brother or mother . . . You get the point! Spread love and kindness always. ~Namaste

Hello all you readers! I'm excited to share my new book with you. It's taken me 3 years to finish this project and there were times I thought it would never be finished. Yet, here it is! I hope you'll check it out. . .

Description:

Lizzie has made a lot of bad decisions throughout most of her adult life. She drinks too much. Takes too many drugs and chooses the wrong men. It is her obsession with finding her father – the man who disappeared suddenly from his family’s life 20 years ago– that eventually leads her down a dangerous path that has turned her into a person she doesn’t recognize. It’s turned her into a murderer. After all, isn’t she the reason Sophia is dead?

Emily is the better sister and always making the right choices – or so it seems. These days Emily’s life is unraveling at every end. She is struggling to pay for her mother’s healthcare. Her relationship with her married boss is threatening her promotion to detective and her physical safety. To make matters worse, she and Lizzie are further apart than ever. It’s after Lizzie takes off on a whim to chase the ghost of their father that Emily’s carefully constructed life spins out of control.

The authorities say that girls and women go missing every day, especially those with a history of addiction and a propensity for hanging out with the wrong crowd. Some are missed. Most are forgotten. Emily knows this is true, but she can’t accept it. She won’t accept it. Letting go of Lizzie is not an option. So when a pawnshop owner calls her with unexpected information about Lizzie’s disappearance, she heads south to the Arizona-Mexico border to bring her sister back at whatever cost. Yet, as Emily gets closer to the truth about Lizzie’s disappearance, she is forced to face her own truths about the ghost she’s running from and that she may not ever see her sister again.

60 Days is the highly-anticipated companion novel to the short novella, Missing Girl, and book one of the Missing Girl series. Told from alternating viewpoints, 60 Days picks up after Sophia’s tragic death in Missing Girl. It takes the reader on a journey that weaves through past and present at electrifying speed. Exploring the themes of human trafficking, sisterhood, family loyalty, loss, and addiction, 60 Days takes an honest look at how the choices we make can bring us to the brink of madness.

A boldly-written, psychological thriller, 60 Days will take you on an exhilarating ride to the explosive cliffhanger ending that will leave you stunned and asking, “What comes next?”

Looking for a quick, but intense read for your book club? Consider Missing Girl by Piper Punches (yeah, that's me). If your members use ereaders, I will give them a free PDF copy of Missing Girl when they sign up for my newsletter. Follow the link for the info!

Here is a quick synopsis of Missing Girl:

Sophia Cruz was an average 17-year-old girl from Mission Valley, until the day she had a knife put to her stomach and fear inserted into her heart. Some may have called it stupidity. She called it a necessary sacrifice. Why else would she leave everything behind and walk arm in arm with the devil into a world of prostitution and human imprisonment? This is Sophia's story. She wants you to know who she was before that day. Before she became just another missing girl . . .

Note to Reader: This book is a short novella that is tie-in to the upcoming full-length novel, 60 Days, due to release September 2,  2014.
