EXCERPT:
Chapter One
Smoke filled the air as Lacy Stone raced through the crowd of bystanders standing outside a burning resort surrounded by tall coconut trees. Flames bellowed all over the place as three men eradicated the fire. A short dark man carried a white man splattered with blood all over his face and clothes as the man laid him on a stretcher.
“My wife?” He called out with his raspy voice. “Where is she?”
“We’re still searching for her.”
The bystanders mumbled in their native tongue.
The man positioned the oxygen mask on his face. “We have to rush you to the clinic.”
A wailing sound echoed as people pushed their way to the resort. Lacy spotted a toddler with curly hair carrying a bouquet of white flowers scurrying towards the island. Without hesitation, Lacy scampered after her. “Wait.”
A strong wave splashed through the child and carried her deep into the ocean.
Lacy dove into the water hoping to save her. Air escaped her lungs, then everything went black.
Feeling a nudge on her shoulder, a familiar voice said, “Lacy, are you all right? Looks like you had a bad dream.”
 Lacy pushed the comforter down, gasping for breath as she caught a glimpse of the ceiling fan in her bedroom.

Review: The Lost Flower is a wonderful story, beautifully written with engaging characters. As soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down - the plot follows Lucy as she embarks on a life changing adventure, and with each page I found myself becoming increasingly sucked into the storyline, gripped by the romance and mystery it entailed. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves and unusual plot which will leave you reeling for days after you have finished reading.
