Join Christine Amsden, author of the paranormal mystery novel, Secrets and Lies: Cassie Scot Book 2, as she tours the blogosphere November 18 – February 28, 2014 on her second virtual book tour with Pump Up Your Book! To see a list of the other bloogers in this tour please click here.
This is book 2 in this series-you can read my review of Book 1 Paranormal Detective here. It does help if you read the first book before the second because it is a continuation and you really do need to know what happened previously to understand some of it. Cassie has been disowned by her family and goes off on her own. Of course her family is still watching her back whether she likes it or not. And she does NOT like it. Heck they disowned her-didn't they? Since Cassie truly believes she has absolutely no magical abilities (except perhaps intuitiveness) she continues trying to get jobs as a "normal detective"-the only problem is since she comes from a very magical family all the jobs are paranormal. Evan Blackwood, who is the son of Cassie's fathers arch enemy and Cassie have a definite attraction and some of the book revolves around this. Lots of detective work in this novel and I did enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the first! A couple of surprises are awaiting you in this 2nd of so far a 4 series book!

Christine Amsden has been writing science fiction and fantasy for as long as she can remember. She loves to write and it is her dream that others will be inspired by this love and by her stories.
