This weeks blog tour is going to come in two installments because I was a slacker and I didn't get my interview questions to the author on time. I was extra excited to be on this blog tour, because we actually got hard copies of the book. As handy as digital copies are, nothing replaces a real book. I'm more a soft back fan, than a hard backer myself. True, the hard back copies photograph better, but they just don't feel as good in the hand. And there is nothing better than a well worn book, full of notes and underlining for this old school English Major :)
I actually read this book over a month ago, and I really enjoyed it. I'll admit, it drug a bit at the beginning, because there was so much back story, but once it was well written, and once it got into the real story, things really got exciting.
Title: The Mer Chronicles. Book 1: Updrift
Author: Errin Stevens
Summary from Amazon.com:
Since her father died, Kate Sweeting’s home life has been in the pits, her well-being on life support.
Her future looks desolate until she and her mother, Cara, make another plan: abandon their
shriveled existence for more promising prospects on the coast, where Cara can play small-town
librarian-bachelorette and Kate can figure out what’s up with that secretive Blake family from the
Everyone is eerily captivated with Kate and her mother, and Cara is the first to figure out why when
the man of her dreams arrives all dripping and devoted and closed-mouthed about what he intends.
Kate is willing to go along with their subterfuge for a while, but eventually makes a charge for the
water to learn what her mother is hiding. Gabe Blake is there waiting for her…and so is someone
considerably less friendly. By the time Kate navigates her way home, everything will have changed
for her—what she feels, what she wants, and what she’ll risk to be with the man she loves.
