<p><b>Introducing an exciting new series! Steeped in Victorian atmosphere and</b><br /><b>intrigue, this diverting mystery trails a feisty heroine as she takes on a precarious secret assignment. (Age 12 and up)</b></p><p>Rescued from the gallows in 1850s London, young orphan (and thief) Mary Quinn is surprised to be offered a singular education, instruction in fine manners -- and an unusual vocation. Miss Scrimshaw’s Academy for Girls is a cover for an all-female investigative unit called The Agency, and at seventeen, Mary is about to put her training to the test. Assuming the guise of a lady’s companion, she must infiltrate a rich merchant’s home in hopes of tracing his missing cargo ships. But the household is full of dangerous deceptions, and there is no one to trust -- or is there? Packed with action and suspense, banter and romance, and evoking the gritty backstreets of Victorian London, this breezy mystery debuts a daring young detective who lives by her wits while uncovering secrets -- including those of her own past.</p>

Magnolia Vickers' fairy tale happiness was ruined five months ago when her boyfriend, Carter Landlow, was killed. Now she's stuck watching as Penny Landlow and Char Zhu, the heirs of the other two black market organ crime families, come out in favor of H.R. 197 (The Organ Act) which would legalize a private industry of organ and transplant trade . . . and destroy the Families' business.<br /><br />All Maggie's ever wanted was Carter, and to follow in her father's footsteps and head up the Vickers Family. Then she messes up big time: she accidentally downloads a virus onto her father's computer, allowing freelance IT guy, Alex, to make a copy of confidential Family information when she sneaks the computer off-estate for him to fix. He'll only return it in exchange for a kidney transplant, which he desperately needs. Finding a match takes longer than Maggie expects, and as Alex's health declines, she's surprised to find herself falling for him. Like it or not, Maggie must accept that her first love and the Business as she knew it are gone forever. She's not going to be handed a happily ever after. If she wants to save Alex's life and carve out a place for herself in the business of legalized organ trade, she's going to have to fight for it.<br /><br />With searing romance, thrilling tension, and mystery perfect for fans of Holly Black and Kimberly Derting, this second book in the stunning Once Upon a Crime Family series will hold readers spellbound.

<h2>Una novela de amor, misterio, intriga y un secreto que cambiará sus vidas</h2><br /><h3>BEST SELLER en Amazon.com en Juvenil</h3><br />Después de pasados varios años, Lucía vuelve a la isla que la vio nacer y crecer. Su regreso transcurre entre recuerdos, reflexiones, un corazón roto y muchas preguntas. Lo único que se hace evidente, es la incertidumbre que envuelve cada cosa que piensa. Durante toda su vida, ha tenido que aprender a vivir con una sensibilidad extraordinaria que, de cierta manera, la ha unido de manera especial a sus prójimos, pero a la vez, la separa de todos. De casi todos. Ahora, un fracaso amoroso la obliga a replantearse su vida entera, debatiéndose entre la esperanza y el desengaño: tras una fuerte discusión, dejó el apartamento que compartía con el amor de su vida, Darío, frustrada por el aparente enfriamiento de su relación. Sin embargo, poco se imagina lo que le depara el destino en este regreso a la isla, que la enfrentará con viejos demonios y probará su misma humanidad.<br />"Esta novela está muy bien escrita y las descripciones de los estados de ánimo de los personajes principales son un lujo, ya que el autor los describe como si los sintiera el lector" (lector de Amazon)<br /><br /><br /><br />Tags: novelas en español, libros en español, misterio<br /><br /><br />
