Intrigued? Here’s a little more about HALF IN LOVE WITH DEATH.

mycoverIt’s Tucson in 1965, that time of peace and love, but nothing is peaceful in fifteen-year-old Caroline’s life. Since her beautiful older sister Jess disappeared, Caroline might as well have disappeared too. The only person who pays any attention to her is Jess’s handsome boyfriend Tony. Every time she turns around, he’s looking at her with his magical blue eyes, telling her how they can find Jess together, how anything is possible if you believe.

Tony is so loving, and all he cares about is bringing Jess home. And so Caroline follows him into his world of runaways and flower children where she is torn between her doubts and her growing feelings for him in this thriller that is also a love story.

HALF IN LOVE WITH DEATH was a finalist for Best YA Novel in the International Thriller Writers Organization’s 2016 Thriller Awards!

You can buy HALF IN LOVE WITH DEATH on Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
Or add it to Goodreads here.

And now:

As a thriller writer one question I sometimes get asked is:

What’s your favorite way to kill a character?

A. Gun
B. Poison
C. Buried Alive
D. Drowned
E. Strangled
F. Fire

I know it’s a little morbid but I actually have fun answering this question. There are some great choices here but I’d have to say E. Strangled. It’s just so darkly personal…

    I’ve not read many books during the flower power time. It would be interesting to see into that time period.

  • Melissa Paschal

    I would love to read this book because well simply put… It looks awesome! Thanks for participating in the dash!

  • danielle hammelef

    I’ve never read a book set in the 1960s so this will be an exciting and unique book for me.

  • Alyssa Caayao

    Cool! Congrats on being a finalist for Half in Love With Death. I like the book description. Thank you for the chance for winning your book and for also joining the YA Dash! So excited!!!

  • Anne C.

    I would love to read how it is to be a runaway in search of a missing sister in the 60’s. Sounds like a thrilling book!

  • Cassandra

    This sounds like a blast! The 1960s setting is SO unique and is (quite honestly) giving me some serious Charles Manson vibes. Still excited! Thrillers sometimes freak me out but mostly keep me on my toes and are exhilarating reads! Thanks for doing a giveaway!

    • Emily Ross

      Yes, most definitely a Manson vibe!
