  3. I guess that's one way of telling her to shut up. Been hearing a lot about this. It's now on my summer reading list.

  4. Ooh, I wonder who this non-mortal is and why he wants her to be quiet. And the cover is absolutely gorgeous! I love that kind of drawing style, which seems kind of rough but is yet really detailed! Thanks for hosting :)

  8. Is this quote from a short story within the book I am guessing only from the cover. The cover is very intriguing.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.
