Blog Tour: Betwixt by Melissa Pearl Review and Giveaway

I'd like to give a big shout out to AToMR Tours and Melissa Pearl for allowing me the honoring of being a part of the Betwixt tour today! To see more wonderful bloggers sharing their thoughts on Betwixt and offering chances to win your own copy of Betwixt go HERE.

Beautiful, wild-child Nicole Tepper is hit by a car and left for dead. But when she wakes the next morning, Nicole finds herself in bed without a scratch. Perhaps she was more intoxicated than usual, as her mother is giving her the silent treatment and her friends are ignoring her as well.

Things take a turn for the weird when Nicole soon discovers she is actually hovering between life and death. Her body is lying in the forest while her spirit is searching for anyone who can hear her. Unfortunately the only person who can is Dale Finnigan, the guy she publicly humiliated with a sharp-tongued insult that has left him branded.

Desperate, Nicole has no choice but to haunt Dale and convince the freaked-out senior to help her. Will he find her body before it's too late? Or will the guy who tried to kill her with his car, beat him there and finish her off before anyone finds out?

My Thoughts:
Why is it that so many of us intelligent, strong, girls fall for the bad boy. The jerk that would actually leave you in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night just because you don't feel like getting down and dirty. Girls, a little advice for you. That guy is NOT worth the gum stuck to the bottom of your shoe. OK, I feel better now that I got that off of my chest. Luckily Nicole is able to find out exactly what her boyfriend is like because of her "special" situation. In fact Nicole learns a lot about her so called friends and herself while she's "lost".

Pearl does a great job of writing a novel that's not just angst and romance. I loved that she was able to take a real life situation give it a paranormal spin and throw in enough mystery to keep you guessing for a while. I also really enjoyed how she doled out the characters pasts slowly and at just the right time. Here you are reading the story thinking you've figured out the characters and BAM you learn something that makes you feel a bit differently than you did before.

Betwixt is the kind of book that will make you think, make you smile, make you cry, and make you realize that when you're given a second chance, you better grab it and make it count!
