Excerpt From Unveil

Tears filled my eyes. “I love you, Isaac. I do. That hasn’t changed.  It’s just that Tanner and I have spent a lot of time together and we’ve been through a lot.”  I looked back at Tanner who was watching me with an expectant look on his face.  “I care about him.”  I faced Isaac again.  “I care about both of you.”
Isaac sighed. “You can’t have us both.”
“He’s right,” Tanner chimed in. “You have to choose.”
I bit my lip and stared into Isaac’s eyes. I knew I loved him, but did I love Tanner too?  I wasn’t sure. How could I choose between them?
“Kenzie?”  Tanner asked.  I looked at my friend, my protector, the boy who had spent the last few months looking out for me.  He had just professed his love for me and all I wanted to do was run into his arms and tell him I loved him back.
“Kenzie?” Isaac asked.  Glancing at my boyfriend, my heart tugged.  Before tonight I had been convinced he was my soul mate.  I had wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. He was the first boy I had truly loved.  I’d missed him for so long that I wanted so badly to hold him and kiss him and tell him how much I loved him.
Why did this have to be so hard?  No matter what I chose, I couldn’t win.  By choosing one, I would hurt the other.  The thought was more than I could bear.  And yet, I knew they were right. I had to choose.  It was time to make a decision.
I glanced up. The minute our eyes locked, I knew.  It was him.  He held my heart.  He was the one I truly loved.
I opened my mouth, ready to share my decision.

The blurb:  Mackenzie returns home from the summer with her grandma, certain that Wesley is out of her life for good. Until the nightmares resurface, and strange things start to happen. Is Wesley back?
When the danger escalates and threatens those closest to her, Mackenzie must fight to save them. Only this time the evil is more powerful, and Mackenzie is faced with an impossible decision.

My Review:

I was so excited to pick up this book!  I just couldn’t wait to see what happened next for Kenzie, her mom, and of course Isaac!  I have to say…..  I was definitely not disappointed.
We stay with Kenzie now that she’s gone back home.   She is back in all of her old surroundings and finding out that being a new Christian is increasingly lonely and difficult…  Until she starts hanging out with Tanner, the one boy in school she always had such a crush on.  He’s also newly saved and they start going to church and hanging out together all the time.
Meanwhile, Kenzie’s mom has a new boyfriend.  He’s well dressed, polite and apparently very rich;  but Kenzie just can’t seem to shake the bad feeling she gets around him.
Things start to get crazy all around her; her mom starts sleepwalking and is that Wesley she keeps hearing and seeing?
Very climactic ending.. just what is wrong with her mom?  What about her relationship with Tanner, how does it affect her love for Isaac?? 

Read the book!!  🙂  

I gave this book 4.5 stars as well!

When Characters do the Unexpected

An interesting thing happens when I write. My characters escape from the page and run around doing things I never expected. And some characters are more difficult to control than others. In ENGRAVED, Amy was always keeping secrets from me. When I discovered them things would suddenly make sense and all was well, but I didn’t appreciate her hiding vital information. I mean, you would think she would trust me since I created her and everything.

In PROWL, Wesley was the one who toyed with me, but what did I expect? He was a pretty shady guy….

But in ENTICE and UNVEIL there were a couple of decisions that Kenzie made that caused me to get a little annoyed. I had expected her to be a little more level-headed than that.

I start each book with an outline, but my characters usually abandon it by Chapter Two. It should bother me, but honestly it makes things more exciting, for me and for my readers. I’ve now started thinking of my outline as more of a roadmap but I recognize that there are many trails that will lead to the end. My characters are pretty strong-willed so I don’t fight them. I just follow them down whatever rocky path they choose and I find that at the end it was more fun that way!
