This story is about an adventure into sometimes obscure places to recover something that is lost. Little Blue Shoe teaches a child how to think, exude patience and learn some lessons on safety along the way.

Ruthie F.

"Awesome book written by an awesome author!!!"

Tiffany K.

"I read this book in a day and half because it’s so much easier to focus and imagine when the whole family isn’t home. The first day I started I read pretty much the whole thing but was unable to finish until the next day. This suspenseful thriller is very descriptive all the way through, each character and place is described so well that you not only imagine it in your head so easily but it makes you want to keep reading til you know how it ends. I would love to know what unfolds with Jodi, Jolene, and Clayton. It is definitely a great read for all suspense seekers."
