Publication Date: November 17, 2015
Genre: YA Paranormal
Only Bauer Grant can pull off gorgeous while dead. But staying dead is another thing entirely. When he wakes up at his own funeral, the town of Mystique calls it a miracle, until it happens again. Something is bringing the residents of Mystique back to life, but what? Presley Caine finds herself caught up in the mystery when Bauer asks her to visit him. Presley can’t figure out why the most popular guy in school is so drawn to her. And when Bauer is kidnapped soon after, she looks to Bauer’s brooding best friend Sam, whose dad works for the powerful Mystique military base, for answers. In her quest to discover the truth, Presley’s relationship with Sam deepens, her feelings for Bauer are tested, and it becomes clear that her own mysterious past is somehow connected to these strange events. But is she strong enough to handle the truth when it is finally revealed?
When I started writing I decided to write a book that I would want to read. Something adventurous and mysterious and of course it had to have love. It always has to have love. I wanted it to be based in the real world, but there had to be a tease of magic as well. All three of my YA novels can be described as that exactly. My biggest hope is that readers will connect with the characters and the story, they will fall in love and experience some adventure but at the same time think to themselves, this could happen, right? Or at least have it feel real enough that they can play along. These are the types of books I like to read, write and experience.
I hope you feel the magic and believe in it. =)
