Chloe & Levesque Series
Books 1 & 2 available August 1

The Chloe and Lavesque series is written by Norah McClintock for teens ages 11 and up. Written in 1st person from the perspective of a teenage girl named Chloe Yan it's filled with lots of teenage angst and of course has the necessary parental dislike, disappointment in her mother's choice of a new husband and stepfather for Chloe and her younger sister. Chloe's stepfather is a police officer in Canada, where they have moved so he can take a position as Chief of Police in a small, back of the woods town.

The book didn't have a lot of edge of the seat action, unlike the Conspiracy 365 series, but it does have a lot of emotion and romance with nothing beyond a little kissing and holding hands. Clean and very easy to read, it's a nice series for a teen who doesn't want to do any heavy reading and it's rainy and too cold to go outside and do chores.

Series summary:
Teenaged Chloe Yan has had to leave behind her beloved Montreal to move to East Hastings, Ontario where her new stepfather, Louis Levesque, has just become Chief of Police. This engrossing murder mystery series is clean and contemporary. This series has a sassy, independent, first-person narrator and illustrates authentic family relationships.

Over The Edge, Book 1Nobody knows how Peter ended up at the bottom of MacAdam’s Lookout. Chloe can’t figure it out, or why his mother seems to think she was his friend. Peter had no friends. He was a loner, more interested in astronomy than in other people. But something - or someone - pushed him over the edge...

Double Cross, Book 2
From the second she met him, Chloe thought Jonah was a jerk. So what's she doing going all over the place with him, telling lies, getting in trouble, all to prove that his father isn’t a murderer? Especially when she isn’t even sure it’s true? In this nail-biting sequel to "Over the Edge" Chloe finally pieces together what happened the day Mary Shackleton died. The trouble is, the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to danger.

The Chloe and Levesque books are $5.99 and are published from Kane Miller. To purchase your copies of these wonderful books, go to:
