Patti Morelli releases 'Unshielded Past,' sequel to first novel

Patti Morelli, author of the mystery novel, "Shielded Past," which received the 2015 Gold Seal of Literacy Excellence Award through Trafford Publishing, is back with the sequel "Unshielded Past" (published by Trafford Publishing). According to Morelli, the latest book introduces new characters but the perils and adventures they experienced from the first book carry on.

"Unshielded Past" is a story about Annie Gannon, whose life is upended with startling truths, constant danger, familial happiness and the appearance of her friend's dead mother who warns against tragedies. With the help of her husband, Andrew, Annie must protect those who she loves and also herself.

The book is packed with suspense, murder, drama and a bit of the supernatural. Samantha reappears to warn Annie and Andrew, about the danger that is about to happen. The question is - who really is in danger?

"Many families have hidden secrets that only get detected when a tragedy happens. Life is full of surprises," says Morelli on her book's relevance in today's society. She is positive that with the story's twists, turns and surprises, readers will be kept guessing, and they "can't put the book down."

An excerpt from the book:
Andrew asked Annie to sit down.
"Oh, my, just tell me, what the hell is going on?"
Andrew held her hand. "Annie, I had your mother's body
exhumed earlier today. You were so right. Your mother did not die
from drugs. She was shot several times, which now points to the
fact that she was murdered."
