Free Book Friday - Twister Edition

I have to admit, the last two weeks have been some of the longest and most difficult weeks of my life. I'm emotionally spent, physically exhausted and waiting for the next shoe (of course an expensive, fabulous stiletto, but a shoe nonetheless) to drop.

So what kind of book giveaway is appropriate for something like that? This might be in poor taste, but after searching my bookshelf and finding this title, I figured, well, will there ever be another time to give this away? I certainly hope not. So here it is.


Blown Away by Sharon Sala

Writer Cari North thought she knew all there was to know about plot twists--until she stumbled across her ex-fiance, Lance Morgan, digging a shallow grave in the Louisiana woods. After one horrifying moment of shared recognition, Cari knew her life hinged upon whether she could outrun Lance and the hurricane-spawned tornado that was barreling down on their heels.

Just when she thinks she's lost Lance and heads for home, the storm throws in yet another twist that will change her fate--forever.

Cari's house, her family--her entire life--have been wiped out by the storm. Badly injured herself, and knowing Lance will come after her, she trades clothing and ID with the near-identical cousin who'd been visiting and flees to Baton Rouge. While the world mourns Cari North, she begins an agonizing recovery as her cousin Susan--until Susan's boss calls her bluff and finds himself drawn into her incredible tale.

Hunted by a man she once loved, sheltered by a man she hardly knows, Cari chooses to become the bait...and plots the twist of a lifetime to catch a killer.

I kinda feel bad for the characters - its enough to deal with a tornado, another entirely to deal with a tornado and a killer. But I bet it makes for a better story to read than it is to live. Everyone make it through okay? Got any storm stories to share? To enter to win, comment with the phrase "I'd rather be blown away by a great story!"

"I'd rather be blown away by a great story!" Luckily, where I live it is a very, very rare occurence. It sounds like an exiting read!

Sounds like an interesting story. My state deals mainly with Hurricanes but I've been to Iowa and other places where tornadoes are common. I was more afraid of the Tornadoes than Hurricanes lol XD I guess because Tornadoes can happen so often its a bit scary no?

I was very fortunate, my power went out on Wednesday morning, but was back on that evening, otherwise no other issues.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Where I live we have been hit by hurricanes that have caused much destruction and a week without power.

And now that I am retired, I truly hope I will have more time to read.

The days are just flying by with errands, etc.
