Book Description:

For small-town girl Blakely Henry, any hope of finding her biological parents died when she stopped believing in fairy tales and Disney princesses. That is, until she spots her boarding school’s new British exchange student, Max Ryder, staring at her. Why would a boy who looks like he stepped out of the pages of a magazine be looking at her? Because Max knows something Blakely doesn’t.

Following the tragic demise of one of Europe’s most beloved royal families, Max has stumbled upon information he thinks may lead to a lost royal heir, and now he is on a quest halfway around the world to see if he’s right.

Sworn to secrecy by his university professor and the headmaster of Lakeview Academy, Max is admitted into an exchange program with the sole purpose of finding out the truth. But will his personal feelings for Blakely get in the way?

When a stolen email surfaces, Blakely and her friends’ lives are threatened, and Max starts to question what he is really after.

From the exclusive rolling lawns of Canada’s most prestigious boarding school to the University of Saint Andrews’ hallowed grounds, Blakely’s quiet, unassuming life is turned upside down. Is she really who she thinks she is? Can she survive long enough to help Max unearth the truth?

Book Description:
It's Halle Henry’s first year at Lakeview Academy . . .

On a snowy January night, just days after a fire that nearly destroyed the school’s library, Elsie Stewart, daughter of the headmaster and founder of Lakeview Academy, dies slipping beneath the ice of frozen Clearwater Lake. Unable to right the wrongs she committed before her tragic death, Elsie’s spirit walks the halls of her father’s school, waiting for someone who can.

One hundred years later, while joining her sister’s friend Leigh to help clean out the school’s administration building before the big remodel, Halle stumbles upon Elsie’s hidden journal.

Obsessed with what she finds, Halle searches the school for clues that may lead to solving a century-old mystery. The only problem is that Halle also talks Calum Stewart, Leigh’s worst nightmare, into helping them.

Once Leigh and Calum are forced work together, sparks fly and no one around them, alive or dead, is left unaffected.

Book Description:
It’s Halle Henry’s final year at Lakeview Academy, and she is determined to make it her best year yet. But when drugs are discovered in her boyfriend Alex’s backpack and he is expelled, Halle’s life spins out of control.

Refusing to believe the accusations against him, Halle vows to get to the bottom of what really happened and bring Alex back to campus so they can graduate together.

Now, all Halle has to do is save her boyfriend, solve a murder, graduate from high school, and keep from getting killed in the process.

Lola watched the students file into Mason Hall from the conference room in the upper right-hand mezzanine. Pushing back her rough cuticles with the edge of her paint-chipped thumbnail, she took note of where the kids placed their packs.

“There,” she murmured, seeing the student and bag she sought. At six foot four, the boy was easy to spot. She watched as he hung his things on one of the pegs in the upper gallery where the students were required to leave their belongings while they ate at the tables below.

His name was Alex, if she remembered right. Over the three years they’d been at the school she had watched him grow from a scrawny string bean into a handsome young man. She almost felt guilty about what she had to do next. Damn Ramon for leaving so many loose ends. She fingered the roughly taped tan wax paper bag in her apron pocket. Inside it was a Ziploc bag with less than a half-ounce of marijuana. Not a lot, but enough to get the boy kicked out.

She would tell a couple of her friends who liked to hang out in the teacher’s lounge that she’d seen this Alex kid stick something funny in his bag and that he smelled a lot like skunk weed when he passed her in the dining hall. If she raised her voice just a little when she spoke, the whole room would hear. The school was on crackdown-mode these days with its new zero-tolerance drug policy. If the right faculty members overheard her talking about her “suspicions,” the news would make it to the main office by the end of the day and the boy would be searched. No one would even be able to track the drugs back to her, unless they wanted to admit they’d been eavesdropping, which she knew they wouldn’t. Now, all she had to do was plant the evidence.

Lola ran her hands down the front of her apron, adjusting the stained fabric to cover the rip in her stockings.

Unnoticed, she moved toward the grouping of carefully hung backpacks, trying not to trip over the bulk of the bags littering the floor. Stopping in front of her target, Lola took a deep breath and reached for the leather satchel. Quickly, she pushed the drugs deep into one of the two outer pockets.

That should do it, she thought confidently, patting the worn exterior, making sure her package was secure.
