When Evie Perez is cut off from everything she loves and forced to move to Iceland for the summer, she takes her canvas and paintbrushes into the picturesque cherry orchard behind her guesthouse. She stains her lips with stolen cherries in the midnight sun and paints a boy she’s never met.
Oskar is startled to discover Evie in his family’s orchard, and even more surprised to see himself on her canvas. Too ashamed to reveal his stutter, he remains silent as Evie returns day after day to paint, spilling confessions she wouldn’t even tell her priest.
As Evie’s life back home unravels, Oskar wants to comfort her with words, but he knows he’s waited too long, so he uses music instead. But when it all comes to the surface, he knows that if Evie can’t forgive him for lying, he may never forgive himself for surviving.

I hope you’re having a great weekend. Last Friday I shared the cover reveal on my bookstagram for a highly anticipated read of mine this year, Anna and the Moonlight Road, the sequel to Anna Undreaming (book one of the Metiks Fade trilogy). Anna Undreaming is a dark, young adult urban fantasy taking place in some alternative universes switching among reality and some dreamy spots. The world-building in that book is exceptionally out-of-the-world (no pun intended) and I’m sucked into Anna’s worlds immediately after a few chapters in.
Thus, I’m beyond thrilled to present you with another exciting book news regarding the sequel of Anna Undreaming, Anna and the Moonlight Road, which will be available in December this year!!! Aside from the cover reveal, I’ll also include the book synopsis and purchase links, as well as an exclusive, spontaneous mini interview with the author–which I have never done before on my blog–in the following content. So sit back, relax, and let’s get started!
The hollow was the perfect place to hide.
Or so Free’s dad thought. His plan: flee California with Free’s five-year-old brother illegally in tow, hide out in the mountains of West Virginia, make fast cash during ginseng season, then escape to a nicer place where the law can’t find them. Free isn’t thrilled about living in a holler alongside drug dealers and thieves, but she’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep her family safe. Unfortunately, with their father disappearing into the woods with increasing frequency, Free and her brother exist largely alone. Until their neighbor Cole appears with lots of questions.
Cole’s spent his entire life in the holler—and his entire life working out a way to leave his druggie mother and incarcerated brother. As the editor of the school newspaper, he’s an expert at getting to the bottom of a story, and he’s determined to crack Free—who seems un-crack-able.
When the family she was desperate to protect is ripped apart, Free turns to Cole for help, the only person willing. But while her plan escalates, Free can’t deny the pull she feels toward the boy with too many questions—and who holds just as many secrets. As they become closer, she finds that Cole might need her help as much as she needs his. (From: Goodreads)
