Could you sleep next to a murderer?
Luke Chase—yes, that Luke Chase, a modern hero ripped from the headlines—didn’t mean to get caught up in Mrs. Heckler’s murder. He just wanted to hook up with the hot new British girl at St. Benedict’s, and if that meant sneaking out to the woods after hours, then so be it. But little did he know someone would end up dead right next to their rendezvous spot, and his best friend and roommate Oscar Weymouth would go down for it. With suspects aplenty and a past that’s anything but innocent, Luke Chase reluctantly calls on his famous survival skills to find the true killer.
For fans of “A Study in Charlotte” and boarding school lit, “Sneaking Out” (book one in the “Chased” series) immerses readers in the privileged prep school world, with a mystery that exposes the dark side of life on a residential high school campus.

MY THOUGHTS:  I really like books set at boarding schools (or any other schools for that matter) and I also love mysteries, so "Sneaking Out" was a pretty good fit for me.  Luke Chase attends St. Benedict's school and one evening, while sneaking out to meet a girl, stumbles upon the body of one of the teachers, Mrs. Heckler.  Luke's friend Oscar is accused of the death so Luke takes it upon himself to prove Oscar's innocence. 

I really liked Luke's character and he is a very loyal friend to Oscar, wanting nothing more than to find out Mrs. Heckler's real killer.  The book itself is fast paced and I wasn't able to easily guess the perpetrator, which is always a good thing.  However, be aware, there is a cliffhanger at the end of the book which really has me wondering how long fans will have to wait for the next installment.

Author Bio:
