YA suspense driven paranormal romance
The first book in The Emily Stokes Series is entitled A Kiss for Emily. It's
about a 17-year-old gal who lives in the heart of Kansas who's life is about to
come unglued. It's YA, totally suspense-driven, and takes paranormal to a new
level! If I tell you any more about the book, I'll have to include a spoiler alert
because I can honestly say the less you know going into the story, the more
you'll enjoy it! With that being said, here is the most I dare say:
Emily Stokes never thought that falling in love would put her in the middle
of chaos, or have her questioning her own sanity! But when strange occurrences
turn unbelievable, it becomes a race against time to save Emily from none
other...than the good-guys.
A breath of fresh air in a genre that is overrun by the same vampire/werewolf stories. A Kiss for Emily broaches topics such as first love and delivers a bit of mystery with its paranormal.
I think the best thing about this novel was that there was quite a bit of suspense that kept me on my toes throughout. Emily is constantly having to figure out who she can trust and when the "good guys" become bad guys she is even more confused than ever.
This story has multiple POV's which sometimes can be a little confusing and change too much for my liking. I tend to enjoy stories with one or two major character POV's.
J P began writing her first novel back in 2009 after a
work related injury took her out of the job market.
Foreign to writing literature, her rough draft read more
like torture than paranormal. Although the plot had
been solid, not until she joined a local writer's group
did the book really begin to blossom.
She currently enjoys a successful writing career and
was recently featured as the April 2012 Author of the Month in the Paranormal
