Nocturnal Meetings of the Misplaced - R.J. Garcia - GIVEAWAY!

4.5 STARS!

Mystery surrounds the town of Summertime, Indiana, where fifteen-year-old Tommy Walker and his little sister are sent to live with relatives they’ve never met. Tommy soon makes friends with Finn Wilds, a rebellious local who lives with his volatile and abusive stepfather, who also happens to be the town’s sheriff.

Finn invites Tommy to late night meetings in the woods, where Tommy gets to know two girls. He forms a special and unique connection with both girls. The meetings become a place where the kids, who don’t fit in at school, or home can finally belong. As the group of friends begin to unravel clues to a cold case murder and kidnapping— they learn the truth is darker and closer than they ever imagined. Even if they live to tell, will anyone believe them?

R.J. Garcia is a wife and proud mom. She earned her MSW and worked with foster children and as a school social worker. Writing has been her other great love. She has published several non-fiction pieces. She has been writing short-stories for as long as she can remember. To her amazement, those short stories became novels!

Wow wow wow! A lot of crap happens in this book!
It starts out a little slow, but the Bang! Half way through everything goes to hell in one crazy scene after another. Then its almost non-stop action.

The character development was excellent. I loved tall the main characters - Tommy and Finn (new best friends), and the two misfit girls - Silence and Annie. I loved Annie, especially the second half of the book.

Something very wrong is happening. All the pieces of Tommy's life just don't seem to all fit together. This group of close friends venture out to find out why and try to put all the puzzle pieces together and find some really shocking truths!

This story was very well done. The author really makes you fall in love with the characters. For a first novel - this one was great! I would definitely read another!
