Escape. Murder. Secrets.
Scientist Luke Wilkins has always been one step ahead of Lee, his longtime rival. Luke and his best friend Josh start off on an expedition to Nunavut’s territory for an environmental study. All seems well until their plane crashes in the middle of nowhere. As Luke regains consciousness, he discovers that he’s being held prisoner by Lee and his men.
Luke has something that Lee wants. A ring that has been shrouded in mystery for centuries and Lee will do whatever it takes to get it. Luke fears that he will never see his family or friends again unless he hands it over.
Lee will stop at nothing until the ring is his, but would he go as far as murder?

About the Author
Rebecca Hemlock has written stories her entire life. She always knew she wanted to be a writer. That dream became a reality for her in 2016 when she landed her first job writing for her local newspaper. That same year, she was able to publish a children’s book under the pen name R.C. Burch. With a little help from some wonderful people, Rebecca was able to move forward in her writing career.
Rebecca published two more children’s books the following year, but children’s fiction was only the beginning. She self-published a novella in 2019, titled Bitter Betrayal, Arctic mysteries, and completed her first novel in 2020. When she is not writing, Rebecca enjoys traveling, reading, and spending time with family.
Aside from being a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, she is also a member of Sister in Crime. Rebecca has a degree in English and a certificate in Creative Writing and is also pursuing a degree in Creative Writing.
Interesting premise for a YA novella. Took me a couple of pages to catch on but full of varied characters and action. This new to me author has created an adventuresome beginning to a new series. The bad guys are really bad, the good guys are loyal and truly supportive of one another – gives the reader hope that justice will prevail! For me this is a 3.5 – not a true 3 but not quite a 4 yet either.

More from Rebecca
This book was so much fun to write. There are so many places in this world that have been barely touched by man. I took an interest in Northern Canadian culture after watching a documentary about how the Vikings first settled there.
After reading through the different artifacts that have been found there, Bitter Betrayal was born. I knew this would make a tremendous mystery-suspense story. Whenever I start a mystery suspense book, I usually like to add a dash of romance with an historical twist.
Luke Wilkins is someone that most single dads can relate to. He has a difficult time trusting other people, especially when it comes to his son, Adam. He must learn to trust those around him if he’s going to stay alive.
Bitter Betrayal teeters on the concept of how far someone would go for what they want. If you love Clive Cussler as much as I do, then this novella is for you.
To celebrate her tour, Rebecca is giving away the grand prize of a $25 Amazon gift card!!
