Narrated by Cassandra Campbell, who graciously channels her inner teenager, Suspicion: A Private Novel is a breezy mystery that takes place in the luxurious Caribbean island of St. Barth's. Reed and her fabulous best girlfriends, Noelle, Kiran, and Taylor, look to soak up the sun and enjoy a leisurely winter break away from all of life’s regular problems.
Things go terribly wrong when Reed meets and falls in love with Upton, the best-looking guy on the Island and one with a deeply troubling past. Reed ultimately finds herself the center of a kidnapping plot, an event which does put a damper on any vacation. She needs to figure out who’s out to get her and why.
Geared towards post-tween girls who enjoy equal parts gossip and adventure.
Reed, Noelle, and former Billings Girls Kiran and Taylor have been living it up on St. Barths over winter break. The tropical sun has melted away all the tensions of last semester, and for the first time in months, Reed is happy. She's got her best friends by her side, she has a palatial suite with an ocean view, and she's landed Upton, the most sought-after guy on the island.
Reed is falling in love.
But dating Upton makes Reed St. Barths' highest-profile guest - and not in a good way. Upton has a dark past, and he has broken a lot of hearts. One of his exes still wants him. And she'll do whatever it takes to get Reed out of the picture.
