Oh, and by the way, her book—WHEN FALL FADES—is readable, I guess… *BAHAHAHA*
Uhhh, yeah. It was all kinds of fabulous.
Book Rating: Best of the Best
I had the honor of reading this book early and I went a little nuts. I’m pretty sure I drove Amy crazy with all my messages like, “I LOVE THIS!” or “You are my new author-hero” and “I’m taking notes because this prose is amazing!” No, seriously I messaged her like every chapter. To me she was all, “You’re so nice! I’m glad you like it so much.” Inwardly she was probably like, “Wow, this girl’s crazy.” ;)
This story is considered Romantic Suspense--I LOVE suspense. (For me, the most entertaining historicals are those that have some excitement and mystery in them, don’t you think??) Amy does it right! The pace was spot on and I literally couldn’t stop thinking about it, even when the book was finished.
Her main characters, Sadie and Archer are unforgettable and so well-rooted—and can I just say, ladies, this hero is so dreamy, you’ll need to read with the fan on. Really. The romantic tension sizzles like a Kennewick sidewalk in summer. That’s intense, people. You will be hard-pressed to put this thing down.
WHEN FALL FADES is the kind of book that leaves you numb after, hovering in that pseudo-world between books where you aren’t sure where to go or what to do next because you don’t want to leave the beautiful place you’ve been. Yep, you know what I’m talkin’ about.
And just because I’m so awesome (yes, praise me) I got down on my knees—for you, dear reader—and pleaded with Amy to do a giveaway (ebook) and she’d accepted! I think mostly to get me to stop bothering her. ;)
Leave a comment below with your name and email addy and I’ll choose the winner next Monday. Pretty easy, right? And yes I know, I used to host giveaways all the time, so it’s kind of a big deal that this is happening. I’m more excited than you!!
Amy, congratulations and here’s to wishing you many years of success.
Amy Leigh Simpson writes romantic mysteries with honesty and humor, sweetness and spice, and gritty reality covered by grace. When she's not stealing moments at naptime to squeeze out a few more adventures in storyland, she's chasing around two tow-headed miscreants (Ahem)--boys, playing dress up with one sweet princess baby, and being the very blessed wife to the coolest, most swoon-worthy man alive. Amy is a Midwestern-girl, a singer, blogger, runner, coffee-addict, and foodie. Her Sports Medicine degree is wasted patching up daily boo boo's, but whatever is left usually finds its way onto the page with fluttering hearts, blood and guts, and scars that lead to happily ever after.
