“This whole email courtship is madness. I may be 100 percent cuckoo, but shouldn’t I at least be deliriously happy that he’s flying 5,659 miles to see me, instead of pacing around my room like a nervous wreck? Confession: I’ve been basking in the idea of him. But now that he’s just minutes away from touching down in Los Angeles, and his name doesn’t start with L, I have this gnawing intuitive feeling that something’s not quite kosher. It’s like that funny feeling you get when you get scared, and your hair on your arms stands on end.”

Nothing's as
it seems

By Holly Brandon 

ISBN 978-1-7377842-0-3
Paperback | 458 pages

Thirty-one-year-old Dr. Chastity (Chase) Ann Morgan's continued search to fulfill her romantic fantasy of a perfect marriage takes her to an unexpected place when she begins to have vivid, déjà vu dreams of a mysterious, otherworldly man who calls out to her in the most alluring sing-song voice. While the recurring dreams aren't helping one iota in her struggle with romance, a structural engineering job opportunity along with a man who may be "the one" sends her back to Europe. What unfolds is not quite what she has in mind, and her life becomes more complex than expected, especially when her quirky family's dysfunctionalities pop up at the most inopportune times.

To top it off, a secret journal surfaces, which reveals things from the past. How it's supposed to fit into Chase's life only adds to her growing confusion as a cryptic past seeps into her future. Can Daphne, her ten-year-old psychic neighbor, provide direction when the little girl comes up with her convoluted myriad of clues? Only time will tell if the current events will assist or hinder Chastity's destiny, especially when she has to decide if blind trust in love will lead to a day of reckoning. Find out as you read along in Nothing's As It Seems, the second novel in the Chastity Series.
