Tormented by events in her past, mother of two and part-time graduate student, Hailey Langley, responds to a panicked call from Parker, her former partner in a highly secretive federal agency. The child she gave up for adoption so many years ago is dying from a drug overdose; Parker needs her help to search out the chemical formula of the drug as well as track down the pushers. The request sets Hailey on a journey which endangers not only her life but her marriage.
Finding Euphoria is an energetic novel, filled with danger and suspense and a varied cast of characters. Hailey is brave, intrepid and driven to right wrongs of the past—none of which were caused by her—but like many crime victims feels she is responsible for choices made at a time in her life when options were few and none of which were pleasant.
For a first release, Ms. Becker should take pride in accomplishing a feat of which many dream, but few see come to fruition. With time and experience, we see great things in her future.
On a scale of 1 to 5, Finding Euphoria earns a 3.
