Tink appeared in the open door again, his wings rapidly moving, and in his hands he held a… slingshot? Oh sweet baby Jesus take the wheel. Where did he get a slingshot? Off of Amazon? That didn’t matter. The brownie had taken the time to paint his face. One half was red, the other blue. He looked like he wandered off the set of Braveheart. I mouthed the word no at him.
Cora knocked on the heavy door.
There was no answer. She knocked again, then pushed the door open.
The room was dark and empty. Evan wasn’t there.
Maybe he was just late? But no, he’d left that note for her. Maybe he was in the garden. Cora didn’t love the idea of going out there at dusk, but waiting in this empty room might be worse. She could hear slow footsteps overhead. Was one of Evan’s bosses coming downstairs?
I wasn’t planning on reviewing anything any more, my vacation was beginning, but then I read this book (which came in today, as planned), and I just had to review it. 🙂 Probably won’t be a long one, but I still want to share my thoughts.
I received this book, and was invited to this blog tour, courtesy of Kate Ormand/publisher.
Normally I only do a review, but this is a blog tour, and so I will first post my review, and then I got some fun things about the book, the author, and I got a pawtastic giveaway to share with you all!
Here is the blog tour banner, then you can also check out other people who will join/have joined in this Blog Tour.
The ornate script on the board twisted in the candlelight, making the letters and numbers dance in my head. They were jumbled and indistinct, like alphabet soup. When Claire pushed the heart-shaped piece into my hand, I startled.
I wasn’t normally so twitchy, and hoped Rachel wouldn’t notice. The Ouija board was her favorite present that night and Claire gave it to her. I got her a bracelet. She wasn’t wearing it.
