You guys might remember doing a featured author page for Sarah M Cradit. If not, you can check out my reviews of both her books, a few little teasers, and other interesting things here. I’ll include my review at the end of the post.
So I decided to host a stop on her blog tour. Now I get to share a few more fun things.
Ana Deschanel has made a terrible mistake. The only chance of protecting the other people involved is to flee New Orleans, the only home she has ever known, for the quiet solitude of Summer Island.
Summer Island, Maine (population 202) is not the tranquil escape Ana imagined. The locals are distant and cold, especially her neighbor, the reclusive veterinarian Jonathan St. Andrews. Her only lifeline is the kind but odd caretaker Alex Whitman. Showing up at all the right moments, he warns her she is completely unprepared for a Maine winter. As the first winter storm approaches to whispers of an island shutdown- Ana realizes that she may soon be cut off from the rest of the world.
After a surprising encounter with Jonathan’s brother, Finn, Ana finds herself braving the storm to return something to him. Unprepared for the Maine storm, she slips and falls onto the jagged rocks along the shore. The St. Andrews brothers find her in the nick of time, but she remains unconscious. As the storm worsens, the St. Andrews brothers learn there are other, more sinister forces at work closer than they ever imagined.
With no help from the outside world, they must find a way to protect themselves from both the storm, and the growing darkness that looms across the island.
I already have an interview up, so I asked Sarah for her Top 10 Indie Novels, since she is one of my faves.
In no particular order:
Felicia Tatum- Mangled Heartsa
Brandy L. Rivers- In Too Deep
Brandy L. Rivers- New Beginnings
Charles Yallowitz- Beginnings of a Hero
Brianna Vedsted- The Night I Walked Off Boot Hill
Amanda Keeney- Forgiveness: Alek and Rose
S.K. Nicholls- Red Clay & Roses
Felicia Tatum- The White Aura
Sarah M. Cradit- The Storm and the Darkness
Sarah M. Cradit- St. Charles at Dusk
Yes, I just listed my books 🙂 Partly because I have faith in my writing, but also because I am only just recently starting to read indie authors.
My 5 star review.
This story was just as good, even better than the first.
The characters are real and they have their flaws. She brings you into her world and let’s you see what makes these people tick. You get to see a turn for the darker side between Ana and Jon. I loved Flynn. And Oz, I still love Oz, but maybe not as much as I had. The jury is still out on Nic. He’s got his share of issues, but each character has their share.
I can’t wait for the next book. I want to see who Nic winds up with and why.
