Library Journal First Novels #3

While reading Library Journal, I came across a great article by Barbara Hoffert of first time writers who have novels out this summer. I scoured the list for novels that caught my eye and thought I would highlight them here on Barney's Book Blog.Still Missing
by Chevy Stevens

Here is the description from Barnes and Noble:

On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a thirty-two-year-old realtor, had three goals — sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she's about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent as the captive of a psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape — her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor.

Really want to read this one. How about you?
