**Giveaway** I've Been Looking For You by Jennifer Dean




I've
Been Looking For You
by
Jennifer Dean
Genre:
YA Contemporary

MAX:
The new girl, the sarcastic asshole, the one who avoids getting
attached to anyone.


EMILY:
The golden girl, the rule-abiding rebel, the one who unknowingly
craves something more.


When
fate brings the two girls together, life seemed to fall into place.
Until their future plans are shattered the moment someone leaves
drugs inside Max's school locker. 


While
Max inevitably loses hope of escaping her new grim reality, Emily
struggles to move on without the one she loves most. Especially when
she’s the only one determined to find answers. But the closer Emily
gets to discovering the truth, the harder it will be to stop her
pursuit, even when it leads to dangerous consequences.

I walked sluggishly over to the line of inmates already waiting for their early bird dinner, subtly          licking my lips as my mouth began to salivate. But my hunger shrunk with disappointment as my        eyes followed the pair of gloved hands that were scooping out the unflattering brown, lumpy               sludge.  I resisted the urge to grimace as I inevitably stepped up to grab my tray before turning to         glance around the room in a subtle search for an empty seat. It wasn’t but a few seconds of small        steps forward before I met Sherman’s welcoming glance, beckoning me over with a silent nod. I          shrugged mostly to myself before I headed toward the empty stool across from my curly haired           roommate.




I
was never that child you found in the corner reading. In fact, I
loathed the idea of picking up a book. The activity seemed more of a
chore than a past time.
All that changed when my brother began talking to me about the
newest novel he was reading.Harry Potter and The Order of the
Phoenix. 
Before I knew it, my curiosity got the better of
me, luring me to try the series. It didn't take long for my mindset
of reading to turn on its head. 
But even with my new hobby discovered it wasn't until my junior
year of college that I developed a hidden desire for writing stories.
And when I found myself writing scenes instead of paying attention to
my professors, I knew becoming a writer was the career path I was
meant to follow.

She’d made a huge mistake. She’d never make it out of here - they
were going to kill her."

Bohlander takes on what looks like an easy assignment — at first:
to determine if her client’s boyfriend is having an affair with
another woman. To do this, Elin follows him to a secluded cabin in
the woods, where she soon discovers that what’s actually
transpiring is stranger than anyone thought. Having ventured too far,
she’s stumbled upon a hornet’s nest and put her life at risk. But
it’s too late. Can Elin win the unequal fight against a gang of
brutal child molesters?



SECRETS? is the second, standalone
book from Christer Tholin’s 
Stockholm
Sleuth Series
.
In the previous novel VANISHED?, Elin and her colleague Lars solve
their first case together.

sleuth series.



Vanished?
Stockholm
Sleuth Series Book 1

He
could only hope he’d get out of here in one piece.”



To
come to terms with his recent divorce, Martin, an attorney in Berlin,
plans a peaceful vacation – two weeks in a Swedish summer house
seem to be the solution. It won’t be peaceful, however, and those
two weeks will change his life forever. He takes a liking to Liv, a
Swedish woman whom he meets in the neighborhood. Unfortunately, they
don’t get to have their first date – Liv disappears under
mysterious circumstances. Martin begins his search but soon realizes
he can’t find Liv in a foreign country by himself. He hires two
private investigators, and their discoveries make everything seem
even stranger. 

The
complexities in this suspenseful criminal case lead to a hunt across
Sweden. Martin comes close to finding answers, but his search lands
him in very real danger, eventually leading to the first deaths. Soon
he‘s wondering if he can get Liv and himself out of this situation
alive.



Elin raised both hands in defense. “Stop worrying! Under no circumstances do I want anything to happen to you. But it bothers the hell out of me that they could get away with this intimidation act so easily. In my view, our best move would be to bring in the police. They’d definitely find something interesting here—if only I knew what it was.”
“Thanks, but I really have no interest in dealing with the police. You know how overworked they are. And since nothing serious happened to me, I can imagine what priority they would give this incident. Also, if these guys ever caught wind that the police were involved, they’d get in their heads to make good on their threat. I really don’t need that, thank you very much.”
“Yeah, I know. But this situation doesn’t exactly feel safe, either. I mean, how do we know that they’ll leave us in peace, even if we just lay low? Think about it. You run across one of these guys by chance. You don’t even recognize him, but he alerts the others, and there you are again with a knife at your throat.”
Maja looked at Elin in horror. “Do you have to be so graphic? I’ve got chills running down my spine.”
“Sorry.”
“You’re right, though. It’s still a risk. Let me see how I cope with it. Ask me again in a few days—maybe I’ll change my mind. But please do not do anything without my consent! This thing concerns me now, too. You can’t make the decisions on your own.”
“All right, Scout’s Honor. I’ll discuss everything with you beforehand.”
Elin could easily understand Maja’s point. And she would keep her promise. On the other hand, her detective instincts had been aroused, and she wondered what lay behind this thing. Just what sort of plot were they hatching in that cabin?
Elin rose and walked to the window. She looked down at the entryway to the house on the other side of the street. There was no one there.
“At least, they seem to have called off their surveillance. I don’t see anyone there.”
“Sounds good. That’s something, anyway.” Maja made no effort to check Elin’s observation but instead went straight to the kitchen. “I need to eat something now. And a glass of wine would also be good. Now that I think about it, more like several glasses.”
That was something Elin could fully endorse. Right now, a little normalcy and relaxation were just what they both needed.

The
author grew up in the North of Germany, Schleswig-Holstein. Today, he
lives together with his family in Stockholm, Sweden, where he works
as management consultant.


Already
for ages he has been a great fan of crime stories and therefore, had
the desire to write his own crime story with the characters acting in
Sweden. This crime-fiction is now available under the title
"Vanished?".

The
crime novel starts at a slower pace - like Martin's holidays, but the
tension goes up more and more. It comes to a number of surprising
turns giving new impulses to the story. Apart from that, the lovely
country Sweden is described with the view of a foreigner.
