<b>The second book in the breathtaking <i>New York Times</i> bestselling Hush, Hush saga, soon to be a major motion picture!</b><br /><br />Nora should have known her life wouldn’t stay perfect for long. Despite starting a relationship with her bad boy guardian angel, Patch, and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can’t figure out if it’s for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and starting to become obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.<br /> <br />The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father’s death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl when she has a guardian angel. Since Patch isn’t answering her questions, she has to start finding the answers on her own. But when she finds them, will she be able to count on Patch or are the things he’s hiding from her darker than she can imagine?

<b>"A dark and addictive mystery that had me flying through the pages: best read late at night under the covers with the doors locked!"—Kara Thomas, author of<i>The Darkest Corners</i><br /><br /><br />One dead body, one photograph, one comprimising secret. Everyone's a suspect in this classic "whodunit" murder mystery from <i>Timeless</i> author, Alexandra Monir.  <br /></b><br />Nicole Morgan has been labeled many things—the geeky music girl, the shy sidekick of Miss Popularity, and the girl with the scar. Now only one name haunts her through the halls of Oyster Bay Prep. The girl in the picture.<br /><br />After heartthrob Chace Porter is found dead in the woods near the school, the police search for the girl snuggled up next to him in a picture discovered among his personal effects. A girl no one knew was even close to him—and whose best friend, Lana Rivera, was his girlfriend.<br /><br />Nicole is that girl, and now she’s the primary suspect in his murder. <br /><br />What happened that night? Were Nicole and Chace dating behind Lana’s back? Were he and Lana over? Could either of the girls have killed him? <br /><br /> <br />In alternating points of view—that of suspect Nicole Morgan and that of Lana Rivera—and weaving between present-day, flashbacks, and the characters' surreal subconscious, <i>The Girl in the Picture</i> is a unique tale of teen friendship, romance, and deadly secrets. <br /><br /><br />"This is a murder mystery with tightly tucked-in clues. Perfect for readers who enjoy fancy prep-school tales or mysteries."--<i>Booklist </i> <br /><br />"Monir effectively keeps readers guessing until nearly the end. VERDICT Teens will enjoy the cleverly crafted ride of this whodunit."--<i>SLJ  <br /></i><br />"Mystery lovers will find Oyster Bay Prep just to their liking."--<i>The Bulletin </i>
