Mystery Selves Part Eight: Sneak Peek

Part Eight Publishes April 19, 2018.

Previously in Mystery Selves, Julie and Diana sneak out of the house in the middle of the night and go on a wild goose chase to hunt down Julie’s missing boyfriend, Leo Wysocki. Turns out, he packed a suitcase and left town, presumably to find his father in Spain. Julie is devastated – she’d wanted to go with him. This week, in the final installment of Mystery Selves, we see the paths forward that Julie, Diana, Mona and Gail will choose.

Excerpt from Part Eight:

Three hours later they were on their way back to Saratoga Springs. It was seven­ thirty in the morning, Sunday, and Diana’s life was as empty as the road ahead of them. “You can just kiss that sweet car of yours goodbye,” Mona said for the hundredth time.

“I can never have it back?” Diana asked, ready to punch her.

“Not for a long time,” Mona said. She had combed her hair and was wearing one of her revealing camisoles, but tiny little lines of worry had sprouted at the comers of her mouth. Who was the man who had kissed that mouth? Diana wondered. She thought of her father, a rumpled presence forever hidden behind the newspaper, and said without planning to: “I know you’re having an affair.”
