Guest Post- Avery Flynn (Blog Tour)

Guest Post- Avery Flynn (Blog Tour)

Today, we are joined by the author of Up a Dry Creek, Avery Flynn. She is sharing her views on spitfire heroines. (my favorite kind!) Thank you so much Avery for taking the time to write this guest post. 🙂 Spitfires Are Us By Avery Flynn There are some book heroines who I love and admire. They’re strong and smart and more than a little intimidating. I’m talking about you Anita Blake, who is completely kick ass and I love but who would scare the crap out of me if we met in real life. Then, there are those heroines who I want to sit down with at the bar because I know I’m going to laugh, commiserate and snark the night away. This is where Bridget Jones and Sookie Stackhouse come into play. So when I was crafting Claire Layton, my heroine in Up a Dry Creek, I knew I wanted the second kind of heroine. Claire reminds me a lot of a friend I had in college who… Read more »

Review- Up a Dry Creek by Avery Flynn (Blog Tour)

Review- Up a Dry Creek by Avery Flynn (Blog Tour)

Up a Dry creek by Avery Flynn ebook Published June 15th 2011 by Evernight Publishing Age Group: Adult (18+) Source: Blog Tour Summary (from Goodreads) Dry Creek has been home to the Layton family for generations, a heritage Claire Layton and her brothers Hank, Chris and Sam all appreciate. Claire is a successful, though somewhat debt-ridden, restaurateur who minds her own business—literally. She has enough on her plate between an irascible chef, an abandoned sous-chef, and the pressure of running her highly praised eatery, Harvest Bistro. But when she discovers one of her customers dead in her dumpster, her world begins to unravel. Even as her County Sheriff brother Hank and his team are still swarming the property looking for evidence, Claire receives a threatening call. It seems there’s a slight problem involving the dead young woman in the dumpster. She doesn’t have her phone and her flash drive with her. The killer makes it clear that Claire better find them by noon the next day or he’ll go after her… Read more »

Review- New England Witch Chronicles by Chelsea Bellingeri

Review- New England Witch Chronicles by Chelsea Bellingeri

New England Witch Chronicles  By Chelsea bellingeriPaperback, 356 pages Published June 29th 2011 by CreateSpace Age Group: YA Source: Author Buy this book: Paperback l Kindle Summary (from Goodreads) The Salem Witch Trials of 1692 were an embarrassing stain on America’s revered past. Innocent people were persecuted at the hands of a few over-zealous puritans. But what if there were real witches during those colonial hunts? What if there are witches in present day New England? That is what Alexandria Ramsey’s crazy grandmother believes. Grandma Claudia claims Alex descends from a long line of New England witches. Modern day witches in Hazel Cove, Massachusetts? Unlikely, but strange things are occurring in the weeks preceding Alex’s seventeenth birthday, which also coincides with her family’s annual Halloween party. Alex is haunted by bizarre reoccurring nightmares of a man chasing her through the Hazel Cove Cemetery. On a few occasions, when her emotions have spiraled out of control, inanimate objects have shattered around her. But that’s just a coincidence, right? Alex isn’t so sure, especially after a local girl, who supposedly… Read more »

Review-314 Crescent Manor by M. Jones

Review-314 Crescent Manor by M. Jones

314 Crescent Manor by M. Jones ebook Published May 25th 2010 by Smashwords, Inc.  Age Group: YA/Adult CrossoverSource: AuthorSummary (from Goodreads) Mark and Nathan Connor are estranged twins. There is little to connect them, save their current residence at 314 Crescent Manor, an old building situated in the centre of the city. The tenants of the Manor are never housed at random. With its large, brooding stained glass tree bearing down on them from the fifth floor to the first, it watches, and waits for one world to topple into the next. I finished this book 2 days ago, and I am still thinking about it! This book is CRAZY! Crazy doesn’t even begin to cover it actually! Holy cow, I don’t even know what else to say except- Go read this book now! So much happens and you don’t see any of it coming. I have not been this constantly surprised by a book in a long time. I just did’t want to stop reading in the middle because… Read more »
