TEN! by Gretchen McNeil! Cover Reveal Scavenger Hunt!

I grew up on Agatha Christie. My mom had EVERY SINGLE ONE of her books, so they have a special place in my heart.

And so does the fabulous Gretchen McNeil! This week, Gretchen is revealing her cover to TEN and giving away a spectacular prize! What does this have to do with Agatha Christie, you ask?

About TEN:

"And their doom comes swiftly.

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives – three days on Henry Island at an
exclusive house party. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their own reasons for
wanting to be there, both of which involve Kamiak High’s most eligible bachelor, T.J.
Fletcher. But what starts out as a fun-filled weekend turns dark and twisted after the
discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.

Suddenly, people are dying and the teens are cut off from the outside world. No
electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days.
As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the
killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?"

About Gretchen:
