I am pleased and grateful to announce my second novel, Finding Hope, with the same beloved characters as Safe House, is now available on Amazon, Kindle, and Kindle Unlimited.  It is a clean Christian Suspense with action, adventure, and a little romance. It is a stand-alone novel with some treasure, in the form of answers to questions, for Safe House readers.

I thought it would be fun to share, Finding Hope’s playlist or the music I listened to while writing and running by the sea, with links to YouTube and Apple Music. A little something to listen to while you read. This is the music that inspired Hope Experience Flanagan, a musical soul, and one of the two main characters in the story.

But first! 

About “Finding Hope,”

by Shannon Symonds

She’s hiding in her present.

With nothing but her guitar and a few belongings, Hope Flanagan escapes the abuse and negligence from her mother’s boyfriend. Hope’s lucky enough to find a warm exhaust vent in an alley of her coastal town and blessed with help from a coffee-shop employee who sees her desperate situation. But Hope is determined to stay under the radar from social services and the other homeless kids, who seem to go missing once they fall under the notice of the local homeless tough girl.

She’s hiding from her past.

Grace James works with the police to help survivors of abuse while desperately fighting to keep her own family safe from her vindictive ex-husband. News of her husband’s release from prison pushes her to accept help from the handsome and secretive Officer Joe Hart. But then her mother brings home a stray from her coffee shop, and Grace finds herself catapulting through her fears to do for Hope what she just might not be able to do for herself—find out who she really is to save her before it’s too late.
