White Lady by Jessica Bell

 The Blog Tour Continues!

I'm over at Unshelfish, where there is a very touching review of Seven Letters from Paris
+  a giveaway of the book! Check it out!

And today is also support another author day! (Because I said so...)

First, I’d like to thank Jessica Bell for reading (and supporting) Seven Letters from Paris. I'm on her blog today with seven writing tips.  I’ve known Jessica “virtually” for almost five years now. (Another rock star I'm dying to meet in person!) Not only is Jessica a remarkably talented author and a great friend, she is the go-to gal for writerly advice...and a poet, talented musician, and lyrical writer, as seen with her novel String Bridge.

Here's my review of her latest- a psychological thriller entitled White Lady

"Wow! Jessica Bell has done the impossible and has told a story with five different POVs, all with very unique voices, to create an exciting an engaging read. Admittedly, it took some time (around 75 pages) for me to get used to the format and to emotionally invest in these (severely) flawed characters, but once I wrapped my head around everything...I was blown away. And now I understand what Jessica wanted to (and did) accomplish. She brings us into the world of each of her characters and then....BAM! I'm still a bit breathless. Again...wow! No spoilers here. Read White Lady for yourself. If you loved the surprise ending in Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl, you will love this book."

Today, I'm pleased to host this extremely talented (and giving) author right here!
And you might win Jessica's book!

*This novel contains coarse language, violence, and sexual themes.

Sonia yearns for sharp objects and blood. But now that she's rehabilitating herself as a "normal" mother and mathematics teacher, it's time to stop dreaming about slicing people's throats.

While being the wife of Melbourne's leading drug lord and simultaneously dating his best mate is not ideal, she's determined to make it work.

It does work. Until Mia, her lover's daughter, starts exchanging saliva with her son, Mick. They plan to commit a crime behind Sonia's back. It isn't long before she finds out and gets involved to protect them.

But is protecting the kids really Sonia's motive?
