Widow Falls by Kiersten Modglin

The last girl went missing…
Someone doesn’t want her to be found.

When Sloane takes a job at the infamous whitewater rafting camp, Widow Falls, she quickly learns that the camp has a reputation for more than just summer fun.

People go missing at Widow Falls.

The guide she’s replacing was just one of many. As Sloane settles into her new home—a one-room apartment she’ll be sharing with the five other guides—she can’t help asking questions and digging into the disappearances she’s heard about. Her new roommates tell her stories of dark legends and dangerous folklore surrounding the secluded camp but assure her there’s nothing to worry about. It’s all just superstition.

When Sloane stumbles upon a clue and a secret message hidden beneath the floorboards of their loft, she begins to realize there may be more to the myths than she’s been told.

The message gets her attention: Don’t trust anyone at Widow Falls.

As she follows clues to better understand the missing guide she replaced, Sloane can’t help noticing the similarities between the two of them.

What happened to the other girl?
Why won’t the others help her search?
Are they all in danger?

Whatever’s happening at Widow Falls, it’s clear someone doesn’t want her digging into it. As the seams of her reality are torn apart, making her question everything she sees, feels, and believes, Sloane will have to uncover the truth about the camp—and its occupants—before someone else goes missing.

Because this time…it might be her.

Breaking Conviction by Greer Rivers

Snake

The enemy is two steps ahead.
Every time we think we have answers,
We're left with only more questions.
I've made mistakes,
Hunted the wrong villains,
And now innocents are paying the price.
Naomi's found herself in the middle of it all.
She can't know how broken I am,
The rage that I keep buried inside,
Or that my past has become her nightmare.
Naomi fears she's a damsel trapped by her villain,
But she's my queen.
And it's time she breaks free.

Naomi
The villain has me trapped.
Every time I think I can escape,
The chains strengthen and my hope fades.
I've made mistakes,
Trusted the wrong man,
And now I'm paying the price.
Snake wants me to run away from it all.
He doesn't know how caged I am,
The fears that keep me frozen in place.
Or that my dream has become my nightmare.
Snake worries he's a monster ruined by his past,
But he's my knight.
And it's time I break free.
