A Gilded Age heiress. A vanished fortune. A long-buried secret.

“Pure perfection!”
–Book Boyfriends

It will take more than straight As to survive senior year.

Welcome to the Valley of the Moon—world-famous Sonoma County in Northern California. To its uber-wealthy residents, Sonoma is a dreamy paradise of rolling hills and stunning vineyards. But for high school senior Lana Goodwin, it’s hell on Earth.

She’s over being the poorest student at the posh Briar School for Girls. She’s totally over her dad’s failing vintage car business. And she’s BEYOND over her horrid former stepsister—and current classmate—Cressida Crawford, who lives to torment her.

Worst of all, it’s the tenth anniversary of her mother’s mysterious suicide. Now someone—or something—is trying to make contact with her. On the verge of graduation, Lana finds herself locked in a life-or-death race to uncover her mother’s long-buried secrets.

Can she claim her birthright before her future is snatched away?

VALLEY OF THE MOON is a modern-day fairy tale with some intense themes and plenty of romance. A contemporary YA romantic mystery recommended for ages 16 and up.

“Ms. Archer is whip-smart and in Lana she created a sensitive, smart heroine. The villains will have you screaming in the best way. It’s stylish, has heart, and a thread of heart-pounding violence coursing throughout. You will not want to put it down!”

--Marissa Kennerson, bestselling YA author of “The Family”

"5+ Stars! This book has everything that I love in a novel: fairy tales, mystery, suspense. Add to that amazing writing and you get pure PERFECTION! The author had me immersed in the story from page 1 and I didn't want to leave. It was hard for me to put it down. Her spectacular writing left me captivated and spellbound. I can't wait for more!
