quick read but interesting

Last night we had an impressive lightning storm with a lil rain thrown in for a good measure.  I was safe and sound with three dogs guarding me all the time.  One even making sure that my bottom was well protected since she stayed right next to me all night.  (Poor dear is so scared of storms.)  So I took advantage and drew open the blinds overlooking the back deck while the storm raged on.

This was a great time to curl up in the big ol king size bed here and read.  Tandem by Tracey Bateman was a quick read but interesting.  Especially loved the mystery of it mixed with the storm going on in the back ground.  This was a vampire book but not in a bad way.  I say that  for I am not into the whole vampire thrill that is going on right now.  I did like that it had more of a story line of the members in the community than focusing completely on the vampire side. Here is a bit about the story.

Six months ago, brutal murders shook the small Ozark town—murders that stopped after a house fire reportedly claimed the killer’s life. Lauryn McBride's family auction house has taken responsibility for the estate sale of one of the victims—the enigmatic Markus Chisom. Submerging herself in Chisom’s beautiful but strange world, Lauryn welcomes the reprieve from watching Alzheimer’s steal her father from her, piece by piece. She soon realizes that centuries-old secrets tie Abbey Hills to the Chisom estate and a mysterious evil will do anything to make sure those secrets stay hidden. Even the man who grew up loving her may not be able to protect Lauryn from the danger.

When Amede Dastillon receives an unexpected package from Abbey Hills, she hopes it might be the key in tracking down her beloved sister, long estranged from her family. Visiting Abbey Hills seems the logical next step in her search, but Amede is unusually affected by the town, and when mutilated carcasses begin turning up again in the small community, the local law enforcement isn’t sure if they are confronting a familiar evil or a new terror.

Two women brought together by questions that seem to have no answers.  Can they overcome the loss and darkness threatening to devour them—or will their own demons condemn them to an emotional wasteland?

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
