Violet Intrigue Query
When Ellie’s step-mother, Theresa, does the unthinkable and marries the mayor, Ellie finally has the chance to run away. Disguised as Violet, Ellie uses the help of her old friend, Jackson, to uncover her step-mother’s plans to start a civil war between her hometown and the neighboring town of Knotwood. Ellie makes Theresa believe that she’s run away, but she continues to spy on her, until it’s too late. If Ellie can’t get to the hostages before Theresa does, then not only will her friends die, but it will be her fault. Ellie has to go undercover as a member of the Knotwood Militia, save her friends, maintain her interracial romance built on deception, and prove Theresa’s conspiracy before Theresa can frame Ellie for everything. Violet Intrigue is a 65,000 word young adult romance, Cinderella-remake wherein Ellie realizes that having courage and being kind, doesn’t mean she can allow her step-mother to abuse her and wreck terror in the city and country she loves. VIOLET INTRIGUE is Book One in The Rock Ridge Trilogy. They will all be around the same word count. The sequel, WHITE RUSE, is undergoing edits and currently sits at 55k words. The third book in the series, RED GUILE, has an outline and is being drafted
Once upon a time, I loved playing baseball in the yard with my dad. I loved the crack of the bat as it bit the ball and sent it soaring out past the cornfields. I loved the way he lifted me over his head and spun me after I'd rounded home plate. But once upon a time was a long time ago; and now all of those things are dead. The corn. My father. Even baseball. *** In a post-Supply War America, Ellie Hudson lives under the thumb of her step-mother; a manipulative woman who threatens to destroy everything Ellie has left in Rock Ridge. When her step-mother marries the mayor, Ellie starts to uncover pieces of her merciless plan and has to make a choice. She can either run away and cut her losses, or she can go undercover, spy, lie to those closest to her, and question her most important values as she tries to prevent her stepmother from murdering everyone’s chance for a happily ever after.
