Investigative reporter Luc Gagnon wants a blockbuster national story. He doesn’t believe in woo-woo stuff, so when his boss assigns him to check an alleged sea monster sighting, he’s not happy. Despite Daria McKenzie’s attraction to Luc, a reporter at her door is her worst nightmare, reminiscent of the tragic media circus her family experienced a decade earlier. To prevent a nasty repeat, she denies her sighting. Luc suspects her evasiveness means she’s hiding a bigger story. Could her secret be his big break? If Daria reveals her secret it will give Luc a huge news story and destroy her family all over again. Will she risk trusting the man she’s falling in love with? Will Luc choose an award-winning headline over love?
Synopsis (for 6-10-year-old children)
Life is suddenly changing for nine-year-old Zoe and Ben. The O’Reilly twins are moving from their house in the country to a city home in a neighborhood they know nothing about. Saying goodbye to friends and leaving familiar surroundings is tough and they don’t want to go.
There are no woods near their new house and no kids on the new street either. Zoe and Ben are also worried about their cat, Purrsnikitty, who is famous for chasing cows and herding sheep. How will he adjust to city life? Soon, Purrsnikitty begins to disappear. He returns home every day with weird gifts, like a map and an eagle feather. Where is Purrsnikitty getting his loot? Why is he dragging it home? Has their oddball country kitty turned into a city bandit cat?
Determined to solve the bandit cat mystery, Zoe and Ben investigate. When Purrsnikitty gives a huge yellow maple leaf to a stranger, it triggers an exciting chain of events. In the process, the twins meet new neighbors, make new friends and learn that life in the city can be just as much fun as life in the country.
“Clever writing with many life-lessons and discoveries for children in the 6 to 10 age group. Barbara's use of words is descriptive and delightful. She is obviously a cat lover and understands how a feline can take over a family. Lots of action with the children learning to empathize, and to help their immediate family and others around them. Refreshing, somewhat old-fashioned story free of today’s self-centred tech-talk.”
~ Gwen Maysie
”The story line is more than plausible; with elements that touch many families - moving to a new home, single parent, short of money, societal stratification, facing the unknown, sibling dynamics. The author weaves these into a fast-moving narrative that should keep a pre-teen engaged, and soft pedals the preachy stuff that comes with the genre. Barbara McDonell has an easy talent with words and takes a very measured approach to some dicey situations. She cleverly paints the rich relationships in which her characters live, and gives them all a chance to grow, while not ignoring their foibles.”
~ Peter Frinton
”A delightful book! Although it's aimed at a young audience, I found it quite entertaining as an adult. The mystery keeps pulling you along, needing to know what happens next! And the intertwined story of the twins in their new home is well-told and very real. I loved it! I would absolutely recommend it to parents with children in the target age range, to cat-lovers, and to anyone who enjoys a good, innocent, well-written, interesting story.”
~ Stephanie Deakin
