#Giveaway ~ Book Tour: Mystery Falls by Marilyn Phillips

Welcome to my stop on the Mystery Falls book tour. Brought to you by SupaGurl Tours. Here you can read a synopsis of the book, My Revie and a Giveaway ! I also have a bio of author Marilyn Phillips. 

Secrets. Lies. Deception. For the past six years, Samantha Hunt has lived with the belief that the untimely death of her parents was the result of an unfortunate accident—that by the cruel hand of fate, she had been left an orphan. But it was a lie, a terrible lie told to her by those who wanted to keep her in the dark. And the truth... when revealed, will change her life and haunt her forever.Suddenly plagued by a series of events which find her in danger and in need of a savior, Samantha is repeatedly rescued by the mysterious and elusive Shadow—a stranger who seems to know more about her past and the tragedy which befell her family, than she does. Drawn to him despite the antagonism she feels whenever in his presence, Samantha soon discovers that Shadow is not what he appears to be. Determined to learn his true identity and why he has come to Mystery Falls, the small town in which she has spent all of her seventeen years, Samantha not only uncovers the secrets he refuses to share, but also the truth about her own past. A truth which forces her to acknowledge that things are not always as they seem, and sometimes, not even those close to you can be trusted.Resolved to seeking justice for the unwarranted death of her parents, Samantha embarks on a journey which brings her perilously close to her own demise. Can Shadow use his angel powers to save her yet again, or this time, will he be too late.

Mystery Falls is her debut novel and the first in a series.


My Review:

I found another epic love story type paranormal book. Wow, just fell in love with Shadow. I really liked the main character too Samantha Hunt, aka Sam. She has gone through a major tragedy, and you really feel for her. I really connected with her, and fell in love with Shadow along with her.

I really loved the love story in this book, but still paranormal, which is what makes it exciting to me. Got to have it.
I won’t say anything that will spoil the book, as it’s great to discover the little mysteries throughout the book like I did.

I have a new book crush, in Shadow. He is a mystery to Sam, and she is determined to find out his secret. He has saved her in several mishaps and has the uncanny ability to find her and help her when it’s needed.

She also finds out about lies that were told her surrounding her parent’s death.

There is plenty of mystery going on, some suspense too. Not much action, but it’s not really needed. It’s an epic love story that really touches your heart. I really liked that their love built up over time. Yes, there is a paranormal development that is the initial attraction, won’t say what, but even then, it built up over time, and I liked that.

When I think of Shadow, I think of Ian Somerhalder, his description fits him, but not just that, the attitude and snarky quirks Ian has on the Vampire Diaries reminds me of how Shadow would act.

This book is really well written too, and guess what? NO CLIFFHANGER! What a relief to finally read a book, that is just one great story, not a series that will drag on, and on, with cliffhangers. I am not saying this won’t be a series, but it doesn't feel like it. It could I suppose, but just really happy that I was not left hanging. I hate that more than anything.

I highly recommend this book. Anyone who likes romance books will love this, even if you usually do not read paranormal, I believe you would still like it.

I was provided a copy of this book for the book tour with SupaGurl Book Tours,  for my honest review.
