In My Mailbox is a meme from The Story Siren that any book blogger can join.
16 year old Karlie has had a pretty normal life… But when her Mom dies she is forced to move over 1,000 miles away to live with her Dad. That’s when things start getting weird.
She can’t explain the earthquakes that nobody else feels, or why she no longer sleeps. But most of all she doesn’t know why she trusts Shane so much, even though his Dad wants her dead.
Suddenly, Karlie’s normal life is turned upside down and she enters a world she never dreamed could really exist.
When a lowlife at her cafeteria job tries to molest her, she’s not surprised. When he takes another try and brings a friend, she’s not unprepared. But the more she shakes them off, the harder they come back, until Darla’s working her way up the org chart of an unsavory local business selling homemade porn cast with unwilling teenagers.
Darla just wants to be left alone, the same way her daddy wanted to be left alone. She’s trying to make a normal life where no one needs to die.
But just like they wouldn’t let her daddy alone, they can’t seem to let Darla alone either. And just like her daddy, Darla has skills she can bring to bear on a difficult situation.
Raised by her father to be a remorseless killer, Darla is trying to reboot her life as a college freshman in a bland Midwestern town.
