Pawsitively Poisonous Cover Reveal

Pawsitively Poisonous
Melissa Erin Jackson
Publication date: June 10th 2019
Genres: Adult, Cozy Mystery

Every town has its secrets, but no one has a secret like hers.

Amber Blackwood, lifelong resident of Edgehill, Oregon, has earned a reputation for being a semi-reclusive odd duck. Her store, The Quirky Whisker, is full of curiosities, from extremely potent sleepy teas and ever-burning candles to kids’ toys that seem to run endlessly without the aid of batteries. The people of Edgehill think of the Quirky Whisker as an integral part of their feline-obsessed town, but most give Amber herself a wide berth. Amber prefers it that way; it keeps her secret safe. But that secret is thrown into jeopardy when Amber’s friend Melanie is found dead, a vial of headache tonic from Amber’s store clutched in her hand.

Edgehill’s newest police chief has had it out for Amber since he arrived three years before. He can’t possibly know she’s a witch, but his suspicions about her odd store and even odder behavior have shot her to the top of his suspect list. When the Edgehill rumor mill finds out Melanie was poisoned, it’s not only the police chief who looks at Amber differently. Determined to both find justice for her friend and to clear her own name, Amber must use her unique gifts to help track down Melanie’s real killer. A quest that threatens much more than her secret …

Author Bio:

Melissa has had a love of stories for as long as she can remember, but only started penning her own during her freshman year of college. She majored in Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology at UCDavis. Yet, while she was neck-deep in organic chemistry and physics, she kept finding herself writing stories in the back of the classroom about fairies and trolls and magic. She finished her degree, but it never captured her heart the way writing did.

Now she owns her own dog walking business (that’s sort of wildlife related, right?) by day … and afternoon and night … and writes whenever she gets a spare moment. The Microsoft Word app is a gift from the gods!

She alternates mostly between fantasy and mystery (often with a paranormal twist). All her books have some element of “other” to them … witches, ghosts, UFOs. There’s no better way to escape the real world than getting lost in a fictional one.

She lives in Northern California with her very patient boyfriend and way too many pets.

The Forgotten Child is her debut, the first in a paranormal mystery series. Her next book, Pawsitively Poisonous, releases June 10th, 2019.

Reflection(Twisted Tales #4) Book Review

Reflection (Twisted Tales, #4)

Goodreads

Mulan is one of my favorite Disney movies and I love to read retellings so I’ve been excited to read this book! I thought this was a unique and epic retelling of Mulan! I love that the author took stuff from the movie but also made it different. I really loved the writing! The underworld and the mythology were just so interesting. I really loved the characters! I loved the character growth we get to see in this book. I really enjoyed this retelling of Mulan!

Sweet Poisons by Natalie Bennett Cover Reveal

Sweet Poisons
Natalie Bennett
(Pretty Lies, Ugly Truths Duets, #1)
Publication date: Spring 2019
Genres: New Adult, Romance

A dark and sordid New Adult duet coming spring 2019.

Rhett Sullivan.

Mysterious boy painted in shades of red.

Nova Markov

Eccentric girl dripping in sunshine.

He was the type mother’s warned their little girls about—a cocky, rich asshole with a pretty smile, unapologetically insane and wild.

I was the type guys like him usually ignored—a free spirit who hid my crazy beneath an odd good girl facade, and the art hanging on my studio walls.

We were opposites in every way but one, and we collided like two runaway trains that never had a chance of stopping.

What blossomed between us, our ‘relationship’, was maniacal.

We got stuck in a cycle of madness.

Rhett Sullivan became a bittersweet poison I couldn’t get enough of.

In the end, that’s what destroyed me.

Because in the end?

Our love was nothing but a lie.

I said I was done slapping warning labels on my book babies this year, but since I have never written full on NA yet, I’m going to give a tiny one now. This will be the only label this duet will have. If you are not a fan of twisted stories that deal with dark themes, rich assholes, and lots of filthy sex, this will not appeal to you. This couple is not unicorns and rainbows and neither is their story.

Author Bio:

Natalie Bennett is your average socially awkward author that turns her spontaneous head ramblings into stories.

She has a penchant for writing about villainous immoral men, crazed anti-heroines, and tends to deviate away from traditional HEA’s.

She likes chocolate, Netflix, and Prickly Pear Margaritas.

When she isn’t writing she’s hanging out with her husband and their three (adorable) spawns.

My Name is Victoria by Lucy Worsley Review

My Name is Victoria

Goodreads

This was an interesting tale of two girls named Victoria. This book is based on true historical events but the author did her own spin on it. This book is full of friendship and the girls discovering who they are, especially Miss V. I really liked the authors spin on what happened to Princess Victoria.  I thought it was interesting and a creative twist. I don’t want to say too much because I feel like I’ll spoil it. It was a delightful read!

Tudor Rose

Tudor Rose by W.H. Doyle

Publication Date: April 9, 2019

Publisher: Month9Books

In 16th-century England, two teenage best friends find themselves on an exciting journey from the country to the Queen’s court in the hope of being named ladies-in-waiting. But Sybille and Rose soon discover they aren’t the only girls who have their sights set on attending Her Majesty.  The girls must compete against worldly and cunning opponents, among them mean-girl Avis and her entourage of back-stabbing co-horts, tipping the balance in their already-tenuous friendship.

Soon, the grand hall is more like the hallway of a prestigious finishing school, with girls fighting for the attention of a dashing, young earl, amid parties fueled by drinking and indiscriminate dalliances. As the tension between Sybille and Avis heats up, the focus on Rose wanes, allowing her to turn her attention to more important matters – like getting close enough to the Queen to learn her secrets.

But being close to the Queen is not without its challenges. And when rumors of Rose’s influence make their way around the castle, no one, not even the Queen, will be safe.

Last Girl Lied To

by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn

Publisher: Imprint

Release Date: April 16th 2019

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary

Synopsis:

Something made him angry that night.

Something made her cry.

Something made Trixie disappear.

What if it was all the same thing? 

Fiona claims she doesn’t remember anything about the night her best friend left a party early and walked into the ocean. But the truth is, she wishes she could forget.

Trixie’s disappearance is ruled a suicide, but Fiona starts to believe that Trixie isn’t really dead. Piecing together the trail of a girl who doesn’t want to be found leads her to Jasper, Trixie’s former friend with benefits, and Beau—the boy who turned Fiona down, who loved someone else, who might be happy Trixie is gone.

The closer Fiona gets to finding out what happened, and the closer she gets to Jasper and Beau, the more she realizes that the girl she knew better than anyone may have been a carefully constructed lie—and she might have been waiting to disappear the entire time.

Told in alternating chapters between the past and the present, Last Girl Lied To is a gripping emotional thriller.

My Review

Last Girl Lied To was a suspenseful, dark read full of secrets for you to discover! I really liked the writing style and thought it was unique. I loved the fact that the narrator was unreliable. That makes it harder for the reader to figure out the mystery, which I love! I liked the fact that the characters were flawed. I really enjoyed reading Last Girl Lied To! If you like mysteries then you should pick this one up!

Favorite Quotes

When you put them on either side of a scale, they never weigh the same. One is bound to be heavier.

And maybe the problem isn’t who I let in, but who was already here.

After all, lies that make other people feel better must be kind of okay.

Mine decided to betray me, just like the people I let into my life.
