Only Bauer Grant can pull off gorgeous while dead. But staying dead is another thing entirely. When he wakes up at his own funeral, the town of Mystique calls it a miracle, until it happens again. Something is bringing the residents of Mystique back to life, but what?

Presley Caine finds herself caught up in the mystery when Bauer asks her to visit him. Presley can’t figure out why the most popular guy in school is so drawn to her. And when Bauer is kidnapped soon after, she looks to Bauer’s brooding best friend Sam, whose dad works for the powerful Mystique military base, for answers.

In her quest to discover the truth, Presley’s relationship with Sam deepens, her feelings for Bauer are tested, and it becomes clear that her own mysterious past is somehow connected to these strange events. But is she strong enough to handle the truth when it is finally revealed?



BAMF: Describe MYSTIQUE in 10 words.

Shari Arnold: The kind of book that makes you wonder if it’s possible. Oops. That was 11.

BAMF: What was the biggest influence in writing MYSTIQUE?

Shari Arnold: I’ve always been intrigued by stories that are set in a “real world” with just a hint of un-believability. Or magic. And that’s what inspired MYSTIQUE. It began with a, “What if people began to come back to life,” and lead to a, “Why would they?” And that’s pretty much how MYSTIQUE came about.

BAMF: Which character was the easiest for you to write? Why?

Shari Arnold: Presley. She’s a bit of an introvert. She depends on herself and no one else and yet she longs for a family. Oh! And she loves watching musicals. I could totally relate to that one.

BAMF: Is there a particular scene you hope readers enjoy in MYSTIQUE?

Shari Arnold: More than anything I hope they enjoy the adventure. Sometimes it’s fun to just see where the mystery takes you and where you end up, you know?

BAMF: What is the best part of being an author?

Shari Arnold: I get to control the story, which means I get to decide if they get their happy ending.
