Tomorrow (12/2/2015) there will be a guest blogger here, Stephen Tremp. He is currently doing a blog book tour of his recently released Salem's Daughters book. He has written a fascinating article to share here called "Supernatural versus Paranormal." I think you will find it interesting.
I met Stephen in the recent A/Z Challenge this past April; in fact I was part of his minion (helper) team for this past year's challenge.
I offered to read Salem's Daughters and do a review of the book here on my blog. I was going to include the review of the book with his guest post, but if I did, it would be a long entry to read, so I thought I would do the review today before his guest post tomorrow.
The book was interesting. It wasn't in my usual genre of books that I would read as it dealt with paranormal events. The plot involved 13 accused witches from Salem back in the 1600s who is an effort not to be killed put themselves into cats bodies, figuring they had then 9 lives to live. By the time the story really begins, they are on life 6 and it is now modern times. A young couple trying to get ahead with things and trying to make money and find a way to start a family buy an old piece of property with plans to convert it into a bed and breakfast. It is also the piece of property that has the 13 cats living on it in their new current life. The couple are successful in their endeavors, but then murders start happening at the bed and breakfast and they are the chief suspects of having caused them.
The plot culminates with the house being destroyed once again and the cats now having to wait until it is time for their 7 lives. A lot of people are killed, including the husband of the young couple. The couple do figure out it is the cats causing the havoc but can convince no one that it is them doing these evil deeds. The book ends with a very interesting twist that I don't want to spoil here in case anyone reads it down the road.
The book wasn't something I would have normally picked up to read. For me it was a bit violent, but then again it is outside of my normal genre to read. Those interested in the paranormal and a little bit of a murder mystery would probably enjoy the book. I would give it 4 out of 5 stars in rating it.
Do come back tomorrow to read Stephen's guest post.
Now just a bit of blog maintenance:
I'm participating in Liz's Random Pondering Christmas Blog Hop on December 14, 2015. She is asking people to write about Christmas; anything about it; memories, traditions, etc. Sounds like a fun thing to do. If you want to sign up, go here to do so. I think you guys will enjoy my entry about Christmas :)
See you then!
