Friday 56:
It starts with the memory of us doing normal stuff. That's usually how I slide into my personal nightmare, each time seduced by the sweet comfort of our family's routine.
This week I am spotlighting The Trouble with Fate by Leigh Evans. I have had this urban fantasy story on my TBR mountain since 2012. Here is the description from Amazon:
My name is Hedi Peacock and I have a secret. I'm not human, and I have the pointy Fae ears and Were inner-bitch to prove it. As fairy tales go, my childhood was damn near perfect, all fur and magic until a werewolf killed my father and the Fae executed my mother. I've never forgiven either side. Especially Robson Trowbridge. He was a part-time werewolf, a full-time bastard, and the first and only boy I ever loved. That is, until he became the prime suspect in my father's death…

Today I'm a half-breed barista working at a fancy coffee house, living with my loopy Aunt Lou and a temperamental amulet named Merry, and wondering where in the world I'm going in life. A pretty normal existence, considering. But when a pack of Weres decides to kidnap my aunt and force me to steal another amulet, the only one who can help me is the last person I ever thought I'd turn to: Robson Trowbridge. And he's as annoyingly beautiful as I remember. That's the trouble with fate: Sometimes it barks. Other times it bites. And the rest of the time it just breaks your heart. Again…


  1. I like the sound of this one and the blurb is interesting! It sounds like a good read.

  2. Great excerpts, and while this one is not my usual read, I am intrigued. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “MULTIPLE LISTINGS”

  3. LOL at the beginning, love it!
    Happy weekend!

  4. It's odd that I don't read more about Fae. I guess the books slip past me. This sounds really good:)

  5. I really like the sound of this - both the book and author are new to me so I'll be adding it to my list. Here's my Friday meme
