In the vein of Jennifer McMahon’s Promise Not to Tell and TheLovely Bones by Alice Sebold comes Love Lies Bleeding, a haunting story about the lengths to which people will go to keep their pasts buried. Jess McConkey (aka award-winning author Shirley Damsgaard) enthralls with her ingenious blending of family drama and gripping mystery. Suspenseful and absolutely chilling, Love Lies Bleeding grabs hold of the reader from page one, as a young woman whose golden life is shattered by unexpected violence is sent to a small, secluded lake town in Northern Minnesota to recover—and soon suspects the town’s eccentric residents are hiding more than one truly frightening secret.
“A riveting ride that will start your blood racing from the first line and keep you guessing until the last.”
“Part mystery, part ghost story, Love Lies Bleeding takes readers on a spin-tingling trip into a disturbed mind and the lives of two women who must face their greatest fears--or die trying.”
“Haunting, mysterious, and subtly romantic, this debut under Shirley Damsgaard’s psuedonym is inspirational and full of hope.”
