Description

There’s something deadly lurking in the shadows at Shadow Creek . . .
Due to a last-minute change in plans, a group of unlikely traveling companions finds themselves on a camping trip in the Adirondacks. They include the soon-to-be-divorced Valerie; her oddball friends, Melissa and James; her moody teenage daughter, Brianne; and Val’s estranged husband’s fiancée, Jennifer. Val is dealing with unresolved feelings toward her ex and grappling with jealousy and resentment toward his younger, prettier new flame, a woman with some serious issues of her own. Brianne is sixteen and openly rebellious, caught up in a web of secrets and lies.
 
What Val and her companions don’t know is that a pair of crazed killers is wreaking havoc in the very same woods. When an elderly couple is found slaughtered and Brianne goes missing, Val finds herself in a nightmare much worse than anything she could have anticipated. She was half-expecting it to be the trip from hell, but what she never could have predicted was that this impromptu little excursion would become an all-out struggle for survival.

Editorial Reviews

“[A] chilling tale . . . The intricate, twisty plot builds to an explosive climax.”
Publishers Weekly

“A sassy, scary read.”
Kirkus Reviews

Praise for NOW YOU SEE HER:
 
"An exciting book… [Fielding] develops the psychological uncertainty slowly, carefully and subtly."
The Globe and Mail
"Marcy is one appealing character. Blunt, grief-stricken, and, finally, sick and tired of acting the good girl, she gives vent to her emotions and comes into her own."
Booklist
 
"Fielding succeeds in creating a winning heroine."
Publishers Weekly
