Enchanted Virtual Book Tour Giveaway and Excerpt

Synopsis: Mandy is a quiet teenager who just wants to blend in with the crowd rather than stand out as anything or anybody. Mandy's pretty successful at this until her parents decide it's time to move from Boston to the quiet seaside town of York Beach, Maine, to "be closer to Nana". Although Mandy has been vacationing in York every summer since she was a child, she has no desire to live there and is worried about fitting in and finding friends during her senior year of high school.

Nana owns a flower shop in town and while working alongside her, Mandy makes a few friends and observes the oddities of the little town and its inhabitants. When she finds some old correspondence hidden inside an antique trunk handed down from her Nana, the "oddities" turn into full fledged mysteries. As she unravels the forgotten and hidden history of the town, she simultaneously unravels her own family's past and current secrets while writing her future. With bits of romance and paranormal along the way, she is able to figure out the puzzle of the correspondence, the magic she never realized was surrounding her, and visions of the past and future. Will she walk away from her personal history and her future or will she realize it's ok to be somebody, even if that somebody is nothing like everybody else?


     This time the rose was a deep shade of red, scarlet almost. Mandy pulled over to the side of the road. Her hands were shaking, but she was glad she was alone. She didn't want to worry Steve. She felt her mind racing a million different directions at once as she reached for the single stem. How did this get in my car, why me, wo is doing this, what next, what do I do? Mandy wished there was a mute button on her brain. The soundtrack playing a million miles an hour wasn't helping to calm her nerves. She picked up the rose, mistakenly pricking herself on one of the thorns in the process. "Ow!" Mandy said to no one, instinctively bringing her maimed finger to her mouth to soothe the puncture. She held the rose before her eyes. No doubt it was beautiful, a perfect specimen, but none the less it was ominous. The thorns seemed extra prickly as if someone had painstakingly sharpened each one, which was completely ridiculous.

  There was a note hanging from the head of the blossom just like last time. Mandy felt a surge of dread course through her body. She didn't even want to open it or look at the flower any more, much less read whatever it said, but she knew she had to.
     Enough of your games. We'll be playing by my rules now. First rule is to ditch the boyfriend...for good. If you don't do as I say, actions that could have been deemed unnecessary will be taken. I can only imagine they will be unfortunate and regrettable. We'll catch up soon, and I'm sure we'll see eye to eye.
     Until then,
     Your Secret Admirer
