Today on my blog I have The Devil Drinks Coffee tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, and giveaway.
Destiny Ford is a pseudonym for Angela Corbett. Angela graduated from Westminster College with a double major in communication and sociology. She started working as a reporter when she was sixteen and won awards for feature, news, and editorial writing. She has also done freelance writing. In addition to writing, she works as a director of communications and marketing. She loves classic cars, traveling, cupcakes, and U2. She lives in Utah with her extremely supportive husband and their five-pound Pomeranian, Pippin, whose following of fangirls could rival Justin Bieber's.
She writes adult titles under the name Destiny Ford, and YA/NA titles under the name Angela Corbett.
A cow suicide, a revolving door rescue, and the birth of a bright purple pig are starting to make Kate Saxee wonder if taking a job in her small hometown of Branson Falls, Utah, was such a great idea. As The Branson Tribune editor, Kate covers local news, which, more often than not, involves her accident-prone mom. Nothing truly newsworthy has ever happened in the quiet town until local teen Chelsea Bradford turns up dead in a Branson Falls lake.
The police rule Chelsea’s death an accident, but Kate suspects there’s more to the story—and she’s not the only one. Two of Branson’s most eligible bachelors are determined to help her solve the crime—among other things. But the small town social network is faster than Twitter, and gossip about Kate’s love-life is quickly branding her the Branson Falls hussy.
As Kate learns more about Chelsea, she discovers that plenty of people are trying to cover up the real story behind the girl’s death—including Chelsea’s parents. Now Kate has to juggle work, men, her mom’s most recent disaster involving a low-speed John Deere Combine chase on the freeway, and fend off the Mormons heaven-bent on saving her soul—all while solving Chelsea’s murder. Dealing with this is going to require a lot of coffee, chocolate frosted donuts, Neil Diamond's greatest hits, and a slew of words not on the town approved imitation swear list.
When I heard the name of this book I had to read it and I am so glad I did. I enjoyed it and the characters are unforgettable.
Kate moves back to her small town of
to become the editor of the local newspaper. Most of the stories are boring
small town life with the exception of the stories that revolve around her
accident prone mother. That is until one day on her way to a story about a
purple pig she hears about a body being found in the lake. The police rule it
an accidental drowning but Kate is convinced there is more to this story. With
the help of the towns most eligible bachelors Kate sets out to find out what
really happened. But nothing is ever easy in a small town filled with secrets,
rumors, and lots of gossip. Utah
Kate is such a driving force of this story. She is smart, funny, and has such a quirky personality not to mention we both have a caffeine addiction. Kate is somebody I could see myself being friends with while we try to hide all that coffee we drink from our neighbors. The other characters are just as well defined and we really get to know them and their quirks through Destiny’s writing. She has a way of bringing her characters to life that makes you feel like you know them and could be friends with them.
Every city or town has its secrets but when something happens to your neighbor in a small town you feel like it’s happening to you since it’s such a close community and we really get to feel that in this story. And when we find out the truth behind the mystery it will leave you shocked and blind sided even with the clues that get dropped through the book. I know my mouth was hanging open in shock. My only complaint if you could even call it that is I wish we would have gotten to know more about a certain character named Hawke. I am hopping we get to see more of him in the other books. 4/5 Bloody Fangs
