DADDY’s LITTLE GIRL – YA thriller (status: revising)
Ever since escaping the town her serial-killer father terrorized almost a decade ago, sixteen-year-old Erin Holtz has had one goal: blend in. But keeping her secret gets complicated when she starts receiving death threats.
Despite the threats, Erin plasters her cheerleader smile, enrolls in a scholarship pageant, and dreams about getting into Yale—her typical fake-it-till-she-feels-it MO. However, her life turns into a nightmare: her nana dies in an “accident”, a girl from school blackmails her, even resident hottie and Pulitzer prize wannabee Malik might know more about her than he lets on. From death row, her father claims there is another killer, but Erin doesn’t believe him for one second. After all, he tricked her into choosing his victims.
However, doubts linger when her blackmailer ends up dead with little angels’ wings carved into her face—her father´s trademark. To stop the bodies from piling up, Erin has to face him and her past. Otherwise, she might be the next to die.

But her deadly glares don´t work on broad-shouldered and charming Antonio. As if seeing him at school wasn´t enough, they also end up working in the same Tex-Mex restaurant.

And she can´t ignore the mutant butterflies learning how to do pas chassé in her stomach whenever he gets close to her.
Once Natalya discovers the possible reason behind her Papa´s suicide, she must turn to Antonio for support, instead of drinking her problems away. If she can’t, she might not only lose him, she might destroy herself…
