Blog Tour: JENNY'S BLUE VELVET by Angela Carlie with review & giveaway


Jenny's Blue Velvet by Angela Carlie
Publication date: August 22nd 2013
Genre: Adult Romantic Thriller

Synopsis:
Jenny’s stuck.

She’s tried just about every occupation she can think of and will be digging out of student debt for a very long time, but has nothing to show for it. Her everyday routine feels like a prison. And her marriage? Well, let’s just say it’s been a little one-sided lately and the money she threw down on the toys from Lover’s Erotic Store was well worth it and then some.

Jenny decides her next big step is to become a romance writer. Romance books are flying off the virtual shelves, after all. This will be her big break, her escape from the prison, and a way to freedom. Self-publishing is all the rage these days. She’ll be a best seller in no time.

When Jenny makes friends with a woman named Cassandra from the gym, she instantly decides that her new friend will make a perfect main character in her upcoming book. After the first chapter, real life begins to resemble the fiction she’s writing. Her friendship blossoms, sex with her husband turns into a daily feast, and her job gets more interesting with each chapter written.

Out of the blue, a person who is a close friend with her husband and who is dating Cassandra disappears. As the mystery behind the missing person unfolds, Jenny wonders if she might be responsible for his possible death. And if she is, what will be the consequence? What has this writing business gotten her into?

JENNY’S BLUE VELVET is a dark, humorous, romantic thriller for adults only

A_TiffyFit's Review: I wasn't expecting that at the end. And then the ending itself? WHOA! This novella starts off with Jenny running a 5K with her husband and man is she feeling it. Having started a walking program recently myself, I could just imagine the burn and gasping she was feeling and the slight resentment she would have since her hubby is handsome and fit and ogled by women.
As we are introduced to their life, Jenny is writing a book. She has aspirations of churning out something that will sell like hotcakes online to all of the romance lovers out there. Except, she's never read a romance. But she could write one! And this story she's writing is more suspense than romance, but she can't control it...it's writing itself.
As we get further entrenched into her fictional character's life and her own life, you begin to wonder if her suspicions are true: is her husband having an affair? Why is he so controlling about that damn vitamin?
After a weekend away in Vegas, the couple comes home recharged, a million dollars richer, and to an awful stink in their house. And that's where Angela Carlie gives her throat punch about her characters. Woooo! A wonderful, short read sure to thrill and surprise!

AUTHOR BIO
I’ve lived in the state of Washington my entire life. Sure, it rains a lot, but that’s what makes it so beautiful here. I’d like to say it’s the most beautiful place on the planet, but I have yet to travel the world. Someday I’ll know for sure.

I write fiction involving young people. Mainstream publishing would label my writing as YA or middle grade. Since I’m an indie author, I can skip over the labels and tell you that each one of my stories is unique, can be read and enjoyed by all ages, and almost always has a young person as the protagonist. Authors write what they know and I don’t know old yet. I may someday write about older people, but that’s so far in the future that I can’t see it yet.
