Early Praise for Never Knowing!

Sorry I've been such a bad blogger, but I've been working on my third book and preparing for the trade paperback release of STILL MISSING this May. I still try to stay active on Facebook, so come on over and say hi, and learn more about my dog, husband, and popcorn addiction :)

Meanwhile, I wanted to share some early praise for NEVER KNOWING, which I'm deeply honored to receive from such fabulous authors. I know how busy they are, and how hard it is to read when you are working on your own projects, so I truly appreciate the support.

"Block off the weekend, grab a comfy seat, and prepare for the rocket ride of your life. Never Knowing will consume you with the desire to read every last page, gasp at every twist, and know every last secret between one woman and her serial killer father."

--Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Never Knowing is a chilling thriller with enough twists and turns so every time I thought I knew where it was going I was taken somewhere else. I have a feeling that Chevy Stevens is an author who is going to keep getting better and better with each book! I hope I'm still around for the next six--at which point she'll probably give me a heart attack. But what a great way to go out!"

--Lois Duncan, author of Who Killed My Daughter?; I Know What You Did Last Summer.

"A terrifying, chilling scenario that unfolds into a nightmare that had me keeping the light on at night."

--Rosamund Lupton, bestselling author of Sister
