Title:               The river and the roses
Author:           Sophia Martin
Pages:             366 ( on my e-reader )
Catagory:        Paranormal Mystery

The story:

Since childhood, Veronica Barry has denied her psychic ability. When she dreams of blood and roses in Sacramento’s McKinley Park, the images are so vivid that she rushes to the rose garden, only to find that she is too late to save the victim. Although Veronica yearns to put the experience behind her, her best friend turns to her for help in finding her daughter, Angie, who has gone missing. Veronica must learn to embrace her gift, or Angie will be the next to die. 

The view of a book addict:

This was an amazing book! I sat down with it today to just read a couple of chapters and I ended up finishing it! I just couldn’t put it away. I felt like I was the main character while reading this story.
I even caught myself trying to figure out the mystery myself. I was even frustrated like the main character when she had her visions and couldn’t tell who the other person in the vision was. They story moves along in a good pace, you don’t get bored reading this story!

The verdict of a book addict:

Amazing book! If you like a good paranormal book with a huge mystery in it this is your book! Great characters and amazing storyline with a surprising twist.

Theme Thursday #6

Published 21/04/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict
Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursday is hosted by Reading Between Pages First here are the rules:

  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
    Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”
This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.
The Theme this week is: Weather. So here is my Thursday theme: 
The Chill never left the air, even by that afternoon. The whole month of February had been cold, at least by California standards. As Veronica Jogged through the school parking lot towards her little blue car, she could feel the bite in het air putting a rosy glow into her pale cheeks.
