This gripping and emotional debut novel, Pink Slips, tells a spine-tingling and harrowing story of survival, friendship, doggedness, and love. The inimitable power of the relationship between Betsy Ryan and he beloved dog, Barney, gives this suspense thriller soft spots to counter the uncertainty and intense action.
Betsy Ryan is pregnant with her third child, and receiving threatening notes from an unknown person. During what should be a joyful time in her life, she’s forced to face a decade old memory, and relive one of the most devastating nights of her life. To uncover the mystery behind the threats, she enlists the help of an unlikely, but oddly reliable source, her dog Barney. The menacing notes continue to arrive, while her husband is out of town for work, and she struggles to keep her composure while shielding her two young sons from danger. She trusts no one except her parents, best friend Misty, and her extraordinary dog—who has proven to literally understand everything she says. Is this person out to harm her? And how do they have so much personal information about Betsy? She can’t help but think it’s the same person who attacked her at the train station almost a decade ago, and changed the course of her life forever. To save herself and her unborn child—Betsy must face her fears and find her strength, to reveal who is after her and most importantly…why.
