When five friends return home from college for the summer, it feels as if the friendship that has bound them together since childhood is stronger than ever. But when Laney Thomas wakes up nearly two months later and discovers she is the sole survivor of an accident that has claimed the lives of three friends, Laney quickly realizes the world she awakened to, is not the one she remembers.
Set in the fictional town of Lake Haven, Maine, Evoke examines the complexities of love and loss among childhood friends after a tragic accident claims the lives of three, while leaving two behind. It is the first book in a planned trilogy.

“Atmospheric, deeply moving, and emotionally intense.”

Praise for a stunning debut novel ...


"An impressive debut. Rare for an author to be able to establish a mood in the opening words of a novel that asks the reader to visit a tragedy, but Danielle has already mastered this skill." 

- Grady Harp, Amazon Top 100 Reviewer, 5-stars  


"The ending left me wanting more, especially when a positive romance left me with all the feels." 

- Tree Stand Book Reviews, 4 out of 5 stars 

"A romance I never knew I needed. It makes me look at love in a new way. Love is patient, love is dependable and love is forever. If you like romance, hell, even if you don’t, you should read this book, because it’s not your typical cookie-cutter love story, it’s so much more than that."

- Tiffany Arnold, 4-stars 

"KUDOS to this book. I have not read a YA/NA book in a while and I have to say that this one grabbed me right from page one and kept me reading till the end and when the end came I wanted more." 

- Tee, Amazon Review, 5-stars
