Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Contest: I Can See You by Karen Rose



Wherever you go,

whatever you do...

I CAN SEE YOU.





Eve Wilson's face was once scarred by a vicious assault. Terrified and ashamed, she escaped into the online realm, where she can choose the face she allowed people to see. Years later, her outer scars have faded and inner scars buried, Eve has fought her way back to the real world and is determined to help others do the same. Now a graduate student moonlighting as a bartender, Eve researches the addictive powers of online communities. When her test subjects begin turning up dead as a result of apparent suicides, she doesn't know where to turn.

Homicide detective Noah Webster is one of the few people who believe the victims are connected murders. Eve becomes Noah online guide and realizes the handsome detective may have secret scares as painful as her own. As Eve and Noah chase a killer who is always one step ahead of them, together they try to overcome the tragedies of their pasts and learn to trust again, but they soon discover that danger is much closer than they think.

A few years ago a friend gave me a Karen Rose book and I was hooked. The story was a mystery/thriller with lots of twists and suspense and hot and heavy romance. It kept me guessing until the end and then threw in an extra twist just to finish it off with a bang. I just received this one and I can't wait to dig in!

Thanks to Miriam and Hatchette Books, I can give away three copies of I Can See You by Karen Rose!

  14. Hmmm...favorite summer read...there are so many...in several different genres! But I guess I am with Donna in that One Scream Away was up there and it has the advantage of being by a debut author, so I can hope for more entertainment to come!

  34. Thanks for the giveaway ~ I haven't read anything by Rose before and am looking forward to checking her latest out.

    My favorite summer read so far is "Cavalier of the Apocalypse" by Susanne Alleyn (which coincidentally became available at bookstores today). Historical mystery set in the months leading up to the Storming of the Bastille and the French Revolution. Right now I'm listening to "The Well of Lost Plots" by Jasper Fforde and am really enjoying it a lot too. Both are really excellent!
