Ahhh...a middle-grade mystery that mixes romance and fantasy. I'm all over that combination. That's why I'm excited to work with BeachBound Books to coordinate a Blog Tour for The Gardenia Curse, by C.M. Savage. The tour will run November 7 - November 28, 2016.
Please read on to meet the author, read an excerpt for her story, and enter for a chance to win a $25 gift card and Book Prize Pack. Good luck!
About the Book
Book Description: Thirteen-year-old Eva Thomas finds herself in a life threatening mystery when her dreams become real. Night after night, she is transported to Dreamland, where an evil being, the Shadow, wants her dead. Can Eva save herself and her dreams before it’s too late? Exhausted from troubled sleep, Eva stumbles through her days in a new town where her grandmother is known as an eccentric and in a new school where a bully has decided Eva needs to be put in her place. Eva is left feeling alone and uncertain until she meets Alice, a quirky classmate with non-stop questions about Eva’s family. Is Alice a friend or is she after something more?
In Dreamland, Eva is constantly on the run from the Shadow, even after she meets Herman, her dream-guide. Will Herman be able to protect Eva from the Shadow and shed some light on why the Shadow wants her dead? Or are Eva’s dreams destined to remain a nightmare?
Mystery, evil and a touch of romance—all in a night’s dream.
