Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea
By April Genevieve Tucholke
Publication Date: August 15, 2013
You stop fearing the Devil when you’re holding his hand…
Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town…until River West comes along. River rents the guesthouse behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more? Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery…who makes you want to kiss back. Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it.
A gothic thriller romance with shades of Stephen King and F. Scott Fitzgerald, set against a creepy summertime backdrop–a must-read for fans of Beautiful Creatures, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, and Anna Dressed in Blood.
Why am I desperately waiting for this book? Well…let’s check out the very last sentence of it’s blurb.
“A gothic thriller romance with shades of Stephen King and F. Scott Fitzgerald, set against a creepy summertime backdrop–a must-read for fans of Beautiful Creatures, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, and Anna Dressed in Blood.”
Stephen King? Anna? Mara? These are easily some of my favorite authors/books. So with that alone I am sold. Also, “Boy living in her backyard.” WHAT IS THAT?? Living! As in: ” Wanna come over to my place? It’s the second shrub on the left.”
Everything about this gothic novel screams my name and I’m starting to sound like I have multiple personality disorder so this is the point where I stop talking.
This is what I am waiting for.
What are YOU waiting for?
