Friday Memes: Dead Spots by Melissa F. Olson

Happy Friday everybody!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I am spotlighting Dead Spots by Melissa F. Olson. I received this paranormal thriller through the Amazon Vine Program. Here is the description:
Scarlett Bernard knows about personal space: step within ten feet of her, and any supernatural spells or demonic forces are instantly defused—vampires and werewolves become human again, and witches can’t get out so much as a “hocus pocus.” This special skill makes her a null and very valuable to Los Angeles’s three most powerful magical communities, who utilize her ability to scrub crime scenes clean of all traces of the paranormal to keep humanity, and the LAPD, in the dark.

But one night Scarlett’s late arrival to a grisly murder scene reveals her agenda and ends with LAPD’s Jesse Cruz tracking her down to strike a deal: he’ll keep quiet about the undead underworld if she helps solve the case. Their pact doesn’t sit well with Dash, the city’s chief bloodsucker, who fears his whole vampire empire is at stake. And when clues start to point to Scarlett, it’ll take more than her unique powers to catch the real killer and clear her name.
At 2:00 a.m., Eli's ceiling fan made a sluggish whug-whug-whug noise and stopped moving. I know because I was staring at it.

He stared at me for a moment, then shrugged, probably figuring the same thing I had: we were in this together.


  1. Sounds like an exciting read! Thanks for sharing...and here's MY FRIDAY MEMES POST

  2. I like the concept of a "null" to get rid of vampires!

    Thanks for sharing the opening on Book Beginnings!

  3. Ooooo...This is not my cup of tea. I have never heard of this book before.

  4. I love the sound effects in the opening sentence! Although I don't generally read books about vampires, this sounds like one I could sink my teeth into. (ha, ha)

  5. I like this! Looking forward to your review!

  6. A null? A skull? :) Once I see bloodsucker, I;m wary :)

  7. I like that line: "we're in this together."

    Creepy, scaring, intriguing. Great job!
