The chorus of sirens had scaled back, long enough for the ringing in Olivay's ears to kick in. Her apartment was ruined.
-- Olivay by Deborah Reed. After taking a stranger home, Olivay wakes to a bombed-out Los Angeles and a possible terrorist in her bed.
Reed has creative energy to spare and it overflows the pages of her latest novel. Olivay is terrific!
Reed wrote Carry Yourself Back to Me and Things We Set on Fire, two fine literary novels set in Florida farm country. She also wrote two wild-ride thrillers, A Small Fortune and Fortune's Deadly Descent, under her Audrey Braun pen name. In Olivay, Reed brings her her literary and storytelling skills together in one page-turner of an adventure.
I'm lucky enough to get a review copy of this one. Olivay is coming out on July 7 and is available for pre-order from Wallace Books (call 503-235-7350 to order a copy) or from amazon in kindle, paperback, or audio editions.
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.
