Stanley runs into Hazel, a restless debutante in waiting who has
begun to question her posh lifestyle in the midst of the suffering
she sees. She’s out and about without an escort and against her
When they discover the body of a girl
with her head bashed in by a baseball bat, the very different and
separate realities of the two teens inform their decision. Together
they will figure out what happened to her and bring those responsible
But getting involved with each other
and digging into the secrets behind this murder earns them some
powerful enemies, including a secret group seeking to rid society of
all they deem “undesirable.” They’ve put into motion “The
Winnowing,” a plan seeking to take over the city and enforce their
As Stanley and Hazel’s forbidden
feelings for one another grow, their investigation turns deadly. Now,
it is up to Stanley and his gang of street kids to stop Hazel from
becoming the next victim.

is a mom of 3 strapping sons living in the beautiful mountains of
Utah with a neurotic cat named Hero.
Stanley and Hazel is
a fun read. There is mystery, forbidden love, secrets, corruption and
danger. The 1930s setting is a world of social disparity, jazz,
slang, and fading innocence. The characters, while from another era,
experience the same feelings and issues as we do today. Standing
against tyranny starts in recognizing it in all its forms and
hopefully this book will inspire readers to do so!
