The Monarch by SHANNON ESPOSITO

The Monarch Fate seems to have mistaken Anne Serafini, a forensic photographer, for superwoman and she’s not amused. After being stabbed, witnessing a friend’s murder and shooting a man in self-defense, Anne realizes she’s been Fate’s puppet all along. Now she’s chosen Anna Maria Island to try and take back control of her life. Unfortunately—when a murdered girl washes up on the beach—she understands, once again, Fate has chosen this place for her. When Anne’s two eccentric aunts decide it’s time to let her in on the family secret, they tell Anne she is the latest fourth generation woman in her brown-eyed family to be born with green eyes and a paranormal gift. Anne’s gift is being in the wrong place at the right time. The gift of serendipity. But, the gift is also a curse. Each green-eyed woman has died before her twenty-eighth birthday. Anne will turn twenty-eight in three weeks. Can she embrace her gift and help stop this budding serial killer? Or is he the tool Fate will use to fulfill the family curse?
