16 year old Grace was reared in the wilderness. Her first pet was a bear named Simon. Her first potty, an oak tree. And, her first swing, a forest vine. Grace has lived in the Smokies all her life, patrolling with her forest ranger father who taught her everything he knew about wildlife, tracking, and wilderness survival.
When Grace's dad goes missing on a routine patrol, unlike everyone in her sleepy mountain town, she refuses to believe he’s dead. After finding a Cheetos bag and stolen government file, Grace is convinced she’s one step closer to proving all the non-believers wrong.
One day, while out tracking clues, Grace is rescued from imminent danger by Mo, a hot guy who has an intoxicating accent and a secret. Grace has never felt a connection like this before, certainly not with her ex-boyfriend, the adoring, but decidedly unrugged, Wyn.
After a few run-ins with the town's police chief, her father's partner, and some new evidence, Grace travels deeper into the wilderness that has always been her refuge only to learn that her father's disappearance is not a mere coincidence.
Soon she’s enmeshed in a web of conspiracy, deception, and murder. And it’s going to take a lot more than a compass and a motorcycle (named Lucifer) for this kick-butting heroine to emerge from an epidemic that’s spreading like wild fire, threatening everything and everyone she’s ever loved.
Untraceable will be available November 29th at all ebook locations (I'll update this with real links once the book is available for purchase :)
I'm really excited to be part of the kick off to this awesome book! Johannes has done a remarkable job putting this book together, and if you are the least bit curious about what goes into launching your own book (and doing it the right way!) I highly recommend her blog--all sorts of good information there!
Untraceable itself was a huge roller coaster of fun. I'm completely partial to strong female characters who fight for what they know, and what they know is right, and Grace personifies this completely! Add in some interesting men in her life, and the awesome backdrop of the Smokie Mountains, and this was a really fun read. I loved that Grace is not afraid to get dirty, to tromp through the woods, and to face what scares her. Because, really, some of the things that happen here probably would have left me a quivering puddle on the ground :) You'll all know what I mean when you get a chance to read this one later in the month. I highly recommend it!!
Interested in more about Johannes? Here's the link to the rest of her amazing blog tour--definitely worth checking out! I'll be hosting her here on my blog on December 2nd, and you'll really not want to miss the great stuff she has to say about platform building. Also, if you sign up for her newsletter, you'll get information about all sorts of good stuff, and a discount on Untraceable the week it comes out!
