Description

Ria is rich, slim, pretty, popular. If you only knew her at school, you'd think she led a charmed life--and until recently you'd have been right. But her situation has taken a sudden, unfortunate change. Her parents' seemingly perfect marriage has broken up, and before she's had a chance to absorb the blow, her beloved father disappears in a plane crash. What's worse, rumors begin to surface that he may have perpetrated a multimillion-dollar investment scam and everybody--Ria's mother, her best friends, even her boyfriend--believes them. Ria sees no choice but to take her little brother and run.†She vows to keep the memory of her father alive. Soon, though, she begins to wonder: is her memory playing tricks on her--or is he?

Comeback (Orca Soundings)

Most people think Ria lives a charmed life, but that’s far from the truth. Her parents’ marriage has broken up and her father has disappeared in a plane crash. When rumours start to surface that her father may not be the man they all thought he was, Ria resolves to take action and protect her family.
