Book two in the Hope for the Best series.
The brand burned into Charlie’s arm is a constant reminder that family doesn’t exist, people only care about their own selfish interests, and a handful of pendants, if united, could lead to negative consequences for the entire world. All he wants is to escape his perilous past and the people who want him dead. By accident, he arrives in the small town of Maibe, Nebraska where he has the chance to change his life and start over.
Rochelle is trying to pick up the pieces and move forward after a year filled with loss and illness. She just wants to take care of her family, prevent her home from becoming a ghost town, and save the world if she has time. When an old friend shares secret information about pendants that could save millions of lives, she finds herself and everyone she loves plunged into a world more dangerous than she could ever imagine.
As it becomes clear that nothing happens by change, Charlie and Rochelle must face the trauma of their pasts and work together to ensure tomorrow will be better for everyone.

Vanessa Lafleur is a full time high school English teacher, competitive speech coach, and middle school volleyball coach. She lives in Nebraska and teaches at the school she graduated from.

When she isn’t in the classroom, grading research papers, or coaching at a speech meet, Vanessa enjoys spending time outside, reading, and of course writing. For Vanessa, writing isn’t a career but a part of her usual routine. Thanks to her amazing students and their encouragement, Vanessa was inspired to draft a story for them and anyone looking for an adventure about finding your place in the world. Hope For The Best is her first book, followed by her second book in the “Hope for the Best” series, Tomorrow Will Be Better.
