The Hunting by Kerry Peresta

Isabelle Lewis, top advertising salesperson at the Chatbrook Springs Sentinel newspaper, 
has a habit of falling in and out of marriage. After her last divorce, she shoved the 
emotional pain into a compartment in her brain to deal with later. With three teenagers 
to raise, bills to pay, and sales quotas to meet, introspection was a luxury she couldn't 
afford. Her mind needed a happy place. 

When Isabelle (Izzy) discovered online dating, it immediately became her favorite stress 
reliever and best friend. Often, she'd steal into the night after her kids were asleep to meet 
someone new. One fateful evening, the hunt for the perfect guy took a sinister turn when 
the mystery man she met turned out to be her worst nightmare! Reluctantly pulled into 
a web of lies, Izzy is forced to confront her demons. 

Snarky, suspense-filled, and real, “The Hunting” is an exquisite entwining of the crippling 
emotional fallout of divorce with the quest for a healthy, fulfilling relationship. This 
inspirational story rivets!
