Will she survive? Or, will one mistake claim her life?

Finding Daniel by Maggi Andersen


Sucked into a race against time Lucy fights to save the man she loves.

Lucy Reed and Daniel Fleming seem to have it all: a new home they are in the process of restoring, and a loving relationship. Sure, mortgage payments and a few arguments are always around the corner, but no life can be perfect, right?

Lucy discovers exactly how tricky life can be when she wakes up one morning to find that Daniel seems to have vanished into thin air. He’d been worried and distracted since they bought the house. Had it all got too much? When the police refuse to do anything, Lucy is forced to take matters into her own hands.

Lucy’s frantic search brings her to the doorstep of her unsettling Italian neighbors, the Martone’s. Sebastian Martone, a wealthy, attractive businessman, has bought the television station where Lucy and Daniel work.

Jackson Hahn, Virginia Beach's local historian, has his eyes on the mysterious new woman in town. When she arrives in Pungo, he is struck by her haunting beauty and the raw pain in her eyes. Her descriptions of the odd events happening in her bungalow pique his curiosity.

Michelle Grey is an avid lover of books, and had always thought that someday she would take up her pen and write in her favorite genre - romantic suspense. In 2009, Michelle was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer, and she realized that “somedays” aren’t guaranteed. This life changing event motivated Michelle to pursue her dream of becoming an author.

After publishing her first two novels in the Long Shot Series, Michelle (now a cancer survivor), decided to use her platform to promote awareness of ovarian cancer and its symptoms. In January 2014 she published, Are You Listening: A Personal Journal of an Ovarian Cancer Survivor.

Because it is so important to spread the word, one hundred percent of the proceeds from this $.99 ebook go directly to the Vicki Welsh Ovarian Cancer Fund to support their mission of fighting ovarian cancer through awareness, education, research and support.

Michelle continues to write, adding a third book in the Long Shot Series, and a contribution to the Desperate Measures Boxed Set. 2018 will bring two more titles to market. ​

Michelle lives in the Midwest with her husband of thirty plus years, and has four amazing and unique children, a wonderful son-in-law, and three beautiful grands. To Michelle, any day that involves family, writing, or reading is a great day, indeed.
