Title: Hush (Lakeview Series)
Author: Stacey R. Campbell
Publisher: Green Darner Press
Year Published: 2012
For small-town girl Blakely Henry, any hope of finding her biological parents died when she stopped believing in fairy tales and Disney princess. That is, until she spots her boarding school's new British exchange student, Max Ryder, staring at her. Why would a boy who looks like he stepped out of the pages of a magazine be looking at her? Because Max knows something Blakely doesn't.
Following the tragic demise of one of Europe's most beloved royal families, Max has stumbled upon information he thinks may lead to a lost royal heir, and now he is on a quest halfway around the world to see if he's right.
Sworn to secrecy by his university professor and the headmaster of Lakeview Academu, Max is admitted into an exchange program with the sole purpose of finding out the truth. But will his personal feelings for Blakely get in the way? When a stolen email surfaces, Blakely and her friends' lives are threatened, and Max starts to question what he is really after. From the exclusive rolling lawns of Canada's most prestigious boarding school to the University of Saint Andrews' hallowed grounds, Blakely's quiet, unassuming life is turned upside down. Is she really who she thinks she is? Can she survive long enough to help Max unearth the truth?This e-ARC of this book was given to me FREE in exchange of honest review.
There might be a minor spoiler. You've been warned!
Who is Blakely really?
The character of Blakely is loosely based on our oldest daughter. I wish there were a real Max for her, but at this point, she is still looking.
Where did you get the idea for Hush?
Every night, we gather around the table dinner. On one such evening, several years ago, we were discussing the British royal family. "Well, there's both Tudor and Middleton on my side of the family," my husband informed our girls. "Does that mean I could be a princess?" a much younger Blakely asked. "Only if several hundred people died first," I told her. "But what if that happened? What if there was some sort of big family reunion and they all died?" And the idea was born...
What motivated you to write Hush?
I wanted to do something with out oldest daughter. She had just started her first year at boarding school, and the loss of her in our day-to-day life was devastating. So, I thought, I'm going to write a book for her, and if I'm lucky, she will help me. I was lucky.
Are there plans for more Lakeview novels?
There are plans for at least two more Lakeview novels, one for each of our girls, and I am toying with an idea for a fourth. No, that does not mean we are having another baby.

- He had to be honest.
- He had to be good-looking, but not too hot, or he would've too many women after him, something she knew from experience.
- He had to be looking for a serious relationship, but not be too old or too desperate to settle down.
- He had to be financially secure, but not too rich, or too many women would be after him.
- He had to be funny, loyal, faithful, and modest.
- He had to agree to wait for sex until they were married or engaged.
I love that moment when you open one and sink into it you can escape from the world, into a story that's way more interesting than yours will ever be."
