A causal trip to the public library just got dangerous...

A snarky businessman. A cranky wanna-be writer. A mother with hidden scars and her energetic six-year-old daughter. A young woman with a secret. And a young man bent on revenge. When the library goes on sudden lockdown, these strangers have no choice but to work out their differences if they want to survive the night.

As the minutes slowly tick by, dark secrets will be shared, murder will be plotted, and healing will begin.

Great for fans of Christian suspense, library settings, sarcastic characters, and lots of banter!
Trigger Warnings: Some themes include depression, suicide, abuse (physical and mental) loss, and cancer.

Includes a bonus chapter of Welcome to Ludicrous!
An invisible town with a secret. A snarky heroine who doesn't want to be there in the first place. And a villain with a hundred-year-old revenge story. ****

Praise for 24-Hour Lockdown:

"Wow, this was so cool! I didn’t really know what to expect when I first started reading this book, but I was pleasantly surprised! For some reason, I felt like I was reading a book version of the game Clue. Don’t ask me why … I think it was because there were several characters, and I felt like I was meeting all of them and feeling suspicious or something. I don’t know..." -Vanessa Hall, author of the Grace Sufficient Trilogy

"...~THE LIBRARY!!! This was what got me hooked in the book when I first saw it. Trapped in a library for 24 hours? Yes, please!! How could you say no to that? IT'S A LIBRARY!!! It made me think of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library, which was a book I obsessed over when I was younger. I didn't realize how much I needed a story like this. So, yes, I LOOVE the idea!!!..." -Issabella Perry at

"...Virginia Henderson has a fast-paced style that worked so well with this story. I read it in two nights and stayed up way too late each night doing so. 🙂 Even though several characters had perspectives, I never felt overwhelmed or like I was getting shortchanged on information or story..." -Kristina Hall, author of The Moretti Trilogy and Refuge Trilogy

"This is a great light, humorous, but thought-provoking read that can be read in just a couple sittings. I really, really enjoyed this book and would recommend it. Definitely look forward to other books by this author!"- Lydia
