About the Book: 

Cassie Scot, still stinging from her parents' betrayal, wants out of the magical world. But it isn't letting her go. Her family is falling apart and despite everything, it looks like she may be the only one who can save them. 
To complicate matters, Cassie owes Evan her life, making it difficult for her to deny him anything he really wants. And he wants her. Sparks fly when they team up to find two girls missing from summer camp, but long-buried secrets may ruin their hopes for happiness.

 About the Author:

Christine Amsden has been writing science fiction and fantasy for as long as she can remember. She loves to write and it is her dream that others will be inspired by this love and by her stories. Speculative fiction is fun, magical, and imaginative but great speculative fiction is about real people defining themselves through extraordinary situations. Christine writes primarily about people and it is in this way that she strives to make science fiction and fantasy meaningful for everyone.
At the age of 16, Christine was diagnosed with Stargardt’s Disease, a condition that effects the retina and causes a loss of central vision. She is now legally blind, but has not let this slow her down or get in the way of her dreams. (You can learn more here.)
In addition to writing, Christine teaches workshops on writing at Savvy Authors. She also does some freelance editing work.
Christine currently lives in the Kansas City area with her husband, Austin, who has been her biggest fan and the key to her success. They have two beautiful children, Drake and Celeste.

 My Thoughts:

I had the pleasure of reading the first installment in the Cassie Scot Series and I was not disappointed with Secrets and Lies. I enjoyed reading the 2nd book in the series. There was romance, anger, mystery, werewolves (the first book included vampires) and great characters. I wonder if Cassie and Evan will ever find love? I never saw the ending coming and it was such a cliffhanger. Although the second book contained some back story, I recommend that you read the books in order to truly understand the characters. I look forward to reading the third book in the series. If you love paranormal mysteries then you will love this series. 

Disclaimer: I was given a free copy of the book for my honest review and I was not compensated for my review.

  1. Thank you so much for another great review. You reviewed the audiobook of the original, didn't you? Just so you know, Secrets and Lies was released to audiobook format last week.

    But what everyone really wants to know about is Mind Games (book 3) after the way I ended this one.... May 15, 2014! That's the official word from my publisher as of yesterday. :)


Thanks for stopping by. I look forward in reading all of your great comments. Have a great day!
