Last week, I helped out with the cover reveal and today, I’m pleased to welcome you to the first stop of the blog tour!
Under the Desert Moon by Emma Meade
17 year old Erin Harris spends her time daydreaming, hoping to escape her small town life in Copperfield, Arizona. When a movie crew arrives unexpectedly to shoot a vampire film over the summer, Erin’s small town world changes forever.
Erin is positive she has seen the star, James Linkin before in a thirty year old TV show. He hasn’t aged a day. How is this possible?
Erin is determined to find out, but how will James handle the scrutiny of an all too intelligent teenage girl?
My Blurb (with 3 stars rating)
An enjoyably simple read – this is one of those books you’d read to completely relax. The blurb itself is pretty simple and gave you pretty much what the book is all about so all you’re reading it for is for the ‘how’ the mystery was solved. Oh, and of course, let’s not forget the love interest!
Erin was a great character! Firstly, she is fighting for what she wants from life the best way she could. She didn’t just give up and go with the flow. Nor did she only dream. She is working hard and will not let anything get in her way, not even love! Or will she?
The ending was not quite what I expected (ie. what usually would follow, I think) but I actually liked it. I like the way Erin matured, became stronger & independent. I had some questions about the vampire side of things (eg. their ability & such) but all in all, it was a pretty likeable read.
Emma Meade lives in rainy Ireland. She has a BA in English and History from University College Cork and an MA in Literature and Publishing from NUI Galway.When she’s not reading or writing, she can be found at the cinema checking out the latest movie releases or sipping rosé or drinking Barry’s tea in her backyard with family and friends. Books, DVDS & TV show boxsets take up lots of space in her home, and she collects all the Point Horror books she can get her hands on. Writing supernatural stories and watching marathon reruns of Buffy are some of her favorite ways of escaping reality.
