    Valerie is delighted abouther promotion to editor-in-chief of Manhattan's Panache magazine until her boss drops the other shoe. The drawback is that Jordan has also been hired by the holding company Kurtz-Whitman to oversee the directions of all the magazines including Panache. Valerie will work for the person she hates most in the world.

    However, Valerie soon has a more dangerous problem to cope with. Someone knows her New Orleans street kid roots and is methodically ripping her present life asunder. With Jordan at her side, Valerie must face a shocker from her past if she is to have any future.

    Karen Young furbishes readers with a strong romantic suspense that is filled with varying causes of tensions that tie back together. The story line emphasizes the suspense as Valerie struggles with the resurfacing of her demons that could cost her everything she cherishes in life. The growing love between Jordan and Valerie as well as that between their children is cleverly designed to enable the audience to better understand the lead couple and appreciate Valerie's peril. SOMEONE KNOWS will lead to everyone knows how good an author Ms. Young is.
