Proposals and PoisonProposals and Poison, Wedding Planner Mysteries book #3 Rachelle J. Christensen

“Cozy mystery meets romantic comedy in this fabulous, fast-paced story.”
Cami Checketts author of The Resilient One, A Billionaire Bride Pact Romance

Love can be a very dangerous thing.
At least it seems that way to Adri Pyper, the premier wedding planner in Sun Valley, Idaho. When one of her clients dies mysteriously, Adri takes the advice of the local detective and swears she will stay out of the investigation . . . this time. Luke Stetson’s involvement in the case, along with the possibility of a kiss between the two, should be enough incentive to keep Adri out of trouble. But when a dog-themed wedding is almost ruined by a suspect, Adri and her assistant, Lorea, are thrust into private eye mode. When poison enters the picture, even a reluctant sleuth can’t steer clear of danger.

The Pages Between Us Book Blast & $50 Giveaway

The Pages Between Us

The Pages Between Us by Lindsey Leavitt & Robin Mellom

Told in letters, posters, blog posts, homework assignments, and more, The Pages Between Us is a totally fun, totally earnest snapshot of middle grade friendship—and what it truly means to be there for someone during the ups, downs, and everything in between.

Piper and Olivia have been best friends since…well, forever. But they’re distressed to find that their new middle school schedules aren’t giving them enough together-time. Luckily, an idea sparks when Piper finds a cute, sparkly notebook to disguise as her “French Class” homework. It’s genius—now the two BFFs can stick together all the time. And document their adventures—you know, for anthropology’s sake.

But as the two navigate the tricky new world of sixth grade, they realize that they may need to branch out more than they originally thought. Their notebook, once a life raft, begins to feel like a big responsibility. Can they grow up, without growing apart?

“A cousin to Rachel Renée Russell’s “Dork Diaries”… this is a gentler version of middle school, as the girls support each other through familiar trials… will be enjoyed by strong readers eager to devour realistic fiction with a multimedia slant.” ~School Library Journal

The Second Edition of Unexpected Metamorphosis is Available Today

Posted by on Feb 11, 2016 in Unexpected Metamorphosis | 0 comments

finalsmall

It’s finally here! The second edition of Unexpected Metamorphosis is now live on Amazon and will soon trickle to other suppliers. Although the story is exactly the same, the latest version matches my current writing style. It also has a new blurb, an updated back cover, the first chapter of Unexpected Entrapment, and a list of all the books in the series–current and future.

If you use a Kindle, I recommend you turn on the automatic update on your device. That way you’ll automatically receive the latest updates for all your books. I recently went into my account and noticed many updates available for my eBooks. Like me, a lot of authors eventually go back to their debut novels and make changes years later. If you turn on the automatic update, you don’t have to manually update each book. Amazon will automatically do it for you.

Check out the new blurb:

Alissia Roswell left her abusive, childhood home immediately following her high school graduation–swearing she would never return. After ten years of hard work, she’s finally satisfied with her place in life. Highly independent, she takes great pride in needing no one other than herself. When she learns of her father’s sudden death, she decides to return to her hometown for the funeral. A visit to the old oak tree concealing her teenage diary pulls her into an alternate world, where her body begins to change in mysterious ways. As everything spins out of her control, with danger lurking around every corner, she’s forced to rely upon others. Her mind soon becomes her enemy, haunting her with memories from her past, while her heart strays from her control, teasing her with the incomprehensible notion of love.

Join Alissia on her perilous quest full of adventure, magic, and romance as she travels the challenging road of finding one self–maybe even love along the way.

I’ve also included snippets of reviews on the back cover:

“A twisted and complex plot, with spellbinding intrigue. The characters are deep and multi-dimensional, and the unpredictable, non-stop action builds to a crisis point at the end. Even the romantic aspect is non-linear and captivating.”  Tamie Dearen, author of the Alora Series

“Interesting, different & creative ideas filled this novel with a ton of imagery.” “Love! Love! Love! Can’t get enough of this novel!!!” “The twists and turns kept my attention at all times!” “Unexpected Metamorphosis has everything I love about modern fantasy. New worlds, strong female leads, gripping action sequences, and beautiful scenery that captivates the imagination.”

I’m excited to finally get this edition of Unexpected Metamorphosis out. Although 77% of the reviews on Amazon are five stars, I’m much happier with the quality of writing this update brings to my readers, and I hope you’ll enjoy.
