Blog Tour - Witness in the Dark Review and Giveaway


About the book: What began as a picture-perfect summer vacation for college student Jenny Brodie has swiftly become a nightmare. When she left home on the back of her horse one sunny morning, she couldn't have imagined what awaited her in the Utah desert. Now the darkness is closing in, and there is no way out.

The woman saw what he did—she witnessed the shots he fired, the murder he committed. But she'll never talk. He's made sure of that.

For a man desperate to hide his crimes, the pressure steadily rises as Jenny's community bands together to find the missing young woman. As the searchers grow ever closer to discovering what he has hidden, so too does his desperation. he will stop at nothing to keep the woman hidden—but he has underestimated the second witness to his evil deeds: a young girl determined to protect Jenny. As the trail runs cold, will help come for Jenny before time runs out?

My review: I love it when a book sucks me in so much that I don't want to do anything besides continue reading it to see what happens! This was one of those books for me.

I really loved Jenny's character! Holy cow, what an amazing young woman. She's the Bishop's daughter, she's been attending BYU, but she's home for the summer and willing to help out with whatever needs done, including teaching the 6 year old CTR class. I love the care and detail she puts into teaching these kids that she doesn't really know and I loved how later in the story, her teaching comes back to help her. 

Anyway, Jenny sees something that she shouldn't have seen and she ends up thrown down an old mine shaft. This is where her real character shows. I was amazed by how she was able to calmly go back through her memories to find out exactly what had happened to her and even why. I loved the way she still cared for Clara, enough really to lay down her own life instead of getting the sweet girl into trouble.

The plot of this one is great! I loved the whole thing and I loved how the whole thing from beginning to end fit together. This was a great book that I didn't want to put down until I had read every word!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

About the author: Lynne Larson is an award-winning teacher and writer with a special interest in western history, particularly as It relates to women. Several of her stories, essays, and articles have appeared in regional magazines, as well as in Latter-day Saint publications.

Her novel, In the Shadow of an Angel, grew from her great regard for the pioneers who put the statue of Moroni on the temple long ago, never realizing the changes that would come as the golden figure watched over their Zion for the next one hundred years. Nor could those early builders fully imagine the generations coming after them, for whom the statue would be a beacon and a guide, millions of people, each with a life to live and a story to tell, and all connected by the angel on the spire.

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …

Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
