He'll make sure she never wants to leave...
Holly never thought she’d move back to her home town, but then something terrible happened. She doesn’t know if she can recover. But she knows she can never tell another soul.
People say her neighbour, David, is “different”. He doesn’t go out much, and never after dark. But in David Holly finds just what she needs: a friend. Someone who’s always there.
No one knows Holly’s secret, or where she lives. She has left the past behind. She is sure of it. So why does she feel as though she’s in terrible danger?
The Visitor by K.L. Slater
Keep your seatbelts fastened, this roller coaster is about to leave the platform and the ride ahead is filled with twists, turns, shocking revelations and deviously dark secrets. K.L. Slater’s THE VISITOR is a story of secrets, lies and the machinations of twisted minds. Are people really as they seem on the surface? Could evil be hiding behind the face of a seemingly sweet girl who had had a rough life? Could it be hiding behind the troubled man whose focus is on “watching” the world, his neighborhood and the new girl that lives next door? Will his vigilance become his downfall or his time to shine as a hero?
Holly has returned to her hometown in search of a safe haven after finding the world a little too cold, a little too calculating. Her shy manner and her willingness to work for a secret goal make her a very likable character. Her story is one of turmoil. David has mental issues, but he functions well with his medications and routines. Well-intentioned, he is a self-appointed guardian for those around him, even at his job, yet, to those around him, he is at best, a strange duck who has struck up an unlikely friendship with Holly. Who better to watch out for her when her past comes peering from the shadows?
K.L. Slater’s THE VISITOR teems with intrigue as “the rest of the story” remains shrouded in the fog of the unknown until that very last twist around the bend!
