Linda Castillo‘s bestselling series has been called “gripping” [People] and ”impossible to put down” [Bookpage] and the “teeth chattering suspense” [USA Today] continues with GONE MISSING - a deeply chilling novel about a rite of passage gone horribly wrong.
Rumspringa is the time when Amish teens are allowed to experience life without the rules. It’s an exciting time of personal discovery and growth before committing to the church. But when a young teen disappears without a trace, the carefree fun comes to an abrupt and sinister end, and fear spreads through the community like a contagion.
A missing child is a nightmare to all parents, and never more so than in the Amish community, where family ties run deep. When the search for the presumed runaway turns up a dead body, the case quickly becomes a murder investigation. And chief of Police Kate Burkholder knows that in order to solve this case she will have to call upon everything she has to give not only as a cop, but as a woman whose own Amish roots run deep.
Kate and state agent, John Tomasetti, delve into the lives of the missing teen and discover links to cold cases that may go back years. But will Kate piece together all the parts of this sinister puzzle in time to save the missing teen and the Amish community from a devastating fate? Or will she find herself locked in a fight to the death with a merciless killer?

Pregnant Anna Paquin was spotted enjoying a girls’ night out last night: she had dinner at Boa Steakhouse with a friend. Black is slimming, but even this slim black dress and jacket couldn’t hide Anna’s baby bump! There hasn’t been any more word on whether or not the ‘True Blood‘ star is expecting twins or not.
Are you watching the new season of ‘True Blood’? The twists just keep on coming with this season! I’m amazed at the writers’ ability to keep this show fresh and interesting. What do you think of this season of ‘True Blood’?

Rapper Nicki Minaj rocked the stage in Paris last night. Look at her onstage outfit! Goodness, there’s not a color or pattern missing in this look- LOL. Well, it’s all part of Nicki’s charm. Clearly this woman is a fan of pastels and their flourescent versions.
Have you ever seen Nicki perform live? I bet she is a show-stopper, right up there with Madonna or Lady Gaga. I haven’t made it to one of her concerts yet (then again, it’s been a little while since I went to any concert), but I need to put her on my list.

Rachel Zoe took her regular lunch buddy, son Skyler, out to lunch at Coogie’s Beach Cafe in Malibu yesterday afternoon. As usual, Rachel looked FAB in her lightweight dress (it’s a lot of fabric for a summer dress but so lightweight I feel cooler just looking at it!), and Skyler was as adorable as ever. LOVE his assortment of hats!
It doesn’t sound like Bravo has made a final decision one way or the other on a fifth season of ‘The Rachel Zoe Project’: a cancellation wasn’t announced but Bravo did announce 11 new series. I’m guessing it’s looking to see how the new shows do before deciding on Rachel’s show. Count me in as a viewer who’d like to see a fifth season of ‘The Rachel Zoe Project’!

Here’s Katie Holmes leaving her attorneys’ offices yesterday afternoon after spending six hours there. It sounds like the settlement talks between Katie and Tom Cruise are definitely ongoing (in an effort to avoid a divorce hearing in court). Six hours- goodness! One source tells People:
“[Tom] doesn’t want his family dragged through the mud. They both love their daughter.”
A source says Tom may be willing to agree with the idea that Suri lives primarily with Katie, but “There’s no world where Tom won’t be seeing Suri.” I’m guessing the sticking point may be whether or not Tom has to keep Suri away from Scientology or can expose her to the group’s practices.
A family law attorney who is not involved in the case told People:
“I’m sure Tom Cruise’s attorneys are doing all they can behind the scenes to negotiate with Katie’s side to calm the situation. Ultimately, neither side would want a messy public case to avoid bringing emotional harm to their daughter. Don’t be surprised if Katie quietly retracts her divorce filing and they eventually agree to an amicable divorce and settlement.”
It sounds like they really are working hard to reach a settlement. Hopefully they’ll be successful for Suri’s sake. It’s hard enough for your parents to split without having to deal with the fallout from a bitter custody battle.

Heidi Klum is spending some time on the East Coast in New York City with her kids (we normally see all of them out and about in Los Angeles). Wonder what they think of this heat wave? They’re probably missing the dry heat of California! But they’re keeping cool by staying indoors. Here’s Heidi and the kids going to see a Broadway play.
Heidi had her mother’s help (thank goodness!) as they all went to go see the Disney play ‘Newsies.’ I wonder how the play went over with the Klum clan?
