The Season of Risks by Susan Hubbard
About the book
THE SEASON OF RISKS, the third book in the Ethical Vampire series, sees Ariella Montero fall in love, cause a scandal, and contemplate her own death—and possible reunion with her murdered friends.
Set to be released by Simon and Schuster on July 6, The Season of Risks is set in Florida, Georgia and Ireland. It's a mystery centering on finding, losing and reclaiming one's identity. The author says, "It explores the tension between memory and forgiveness, the prescience of folk tales, the beauty and power of impermanence, and the future of a society in which vampires and mortals must coexist -- or perish."
About the author
