Liane Crilley, an avid writer and retiree, has completed her first book, “Up In Smoke”: a gripping and spine tingling work that grabs hold of the reader with its intricate plot line and demands to be read.

On how she would describe the book and its message, author Liane Crilley said, “It’s about a single mother and her teenage daughter who moved to an island in Maine. Unfortunately, a lot of bad things start to happen to her, some of them worse than others. It has a lot of adventure. Some of the characters can't be trusted, but she doesn't know that yet.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Liane Crilley’s poignant tale is a powerful work of modern fiction with twists and turns that make this enthralling page turner an engrossing obsession from start to finish.

Mother and daughter Margo and Corie lived peacefully in their home in an island off of the coast of Maine. But when strange men suddenly break into their house, seemingly searching for something, Margo and Corie started to become terrified for their safety. They were baffled with the incident and sought the aid of the police. However, since the police are situated in the mainland, they couldn’t ask for a round-the-clock protection. It was later they learned that Margo’s ex-husband had hired men to break into their house and try to retrieve packets of cocaine that he hid in Margo’s table years ago. Though the other residents on the island were very sympathetic, they have suspicions that someone living on the island was involved. Will they be able to find out who is behind all of this? Or will it be too late by then?

Readers who wish to experience this chilling work can purchase “Up In Smoke” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
