Mistrust Cover Image
ISBN: 9780994646002
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Margaret McHeyzer - July 19th, 2016


Once again Margaret McHeyzer makes her readers stand up and take notice.  Mistrust is a story about rape and how it affects the victim and the people around her.
Dakota is excited about her prom with her popular boyfriend but what is supposed to be an exciting event turns into her worst nightmare.
Ms. McHeyzer hits the nail on the head with Dakota's story and how "date rape" affects the victim and how teens can be brutal with how they treat others based on rumor alone.
Very well written and real. Kudos to you Ms. McHeyzer for writing on such a touchy subject.

If I Break Cover Image

If I break is a story you think you will understand how it ends but what really happens is a bit of a shock. This is not your typical love story. Portia Moore deals with a subject not many authors write about. I don't want to spoil it so I am not going to say what that subject is.  Just take a chance on this series. You won't be sorry.
Very good story and I encourage you to read.
