Welcome to the NEW cover reveal for
The Dusty Chronicles
by BJ Sheldon
I had the pleasure of meeting the fabulous BJ Sheldon at UtopYA Con 2013 in Nashville. Introduced to me by the amazing Carol "Mama" Kunz. Upon introduction, Carol suggested that BJ give her book to me to read, review and "pimp out," as it were. BJ gladly obliged, and even signed her book for me! YAY!
To be honest, I didn't know if I was going to like the book. Although the barn looked haunting and I was curious to know it's significance in the story, the original cover (below)
didn't quite have me this excited to read it...
But the summary caught my attention,
and I ended up reading it not long after leaving Nashville.
Now that I've got you all warmed up
(especially with a picture of Jensen)
Here's some info on the book:
BLURB: "How far would you go to protect the man in your dreams?"
After a family tragedy,15-year-old Dusty Vermeer has to start her sophomore year in a new town and a new school. Rural Iowa introduces her to Mark, a charming football player. Dusty can hardly believe her heart. Then, to her surprise Dusty meets another guy.
The chemistry between Dusty and Jack could spark a prairie fire on a rainy day. The only problem? Jack's dead. The handsome soldier comes to Dusty in her dreams and introduces her to the horrors of a foreign battlefield and the enchantments of first love.
While Dusty tries to balance her feelings for the two new guys in her life, Jack steps out of Dusty's dreams and into her reality. And he wants something. Jack has no memory of how he died more than half a century ago. Dusty vows to uncover the mystery, but her quest for justice puts her in the path of evil, a force that won't stop until she's silenced.
I'm not one for posting spoilers in my reviews. I try to keep them informative, yet vague. I don't want to give away any of the good parts!
The story wasn't action packed from beginning to end, but that's okay. The way BJ wrote the dream sequences were intriguing. They made me want to know more. Who is this person? Where is he from? What's his story? Why is Dusty dreaming of him? The story went right along, not lingering too long on certain scenes, but giving you enough detail when needed. You discover the answers to all the questions I asked above. And then, you'll have even more questions. I have to tell you. You think that you might know, and you'll probably be right. But you have no idea, how crazy it will get at the end. I definitely didn't expect it. And, I have to admit...I cried a little.
I love a book that can make me care about the characters, their back story, what happens to them, and what will become of them. This story definitely did that for me. I can't wait to see where Dusty's and Jack's story goes next.
