Cover Alert: Deep Betrayal (Lies Beneath #2)

I love mermaid stories! Plain and simple. So I spent a little bit of time today stalking the virtual shelves compiling a list of MG-friendly merstories for a friend's daughter. While I was doing that, I came across the cover for Deep Betrayal (Lies Beneath #2). How this beauty escaped my radar until now, I have NO idea, but I can safely say that I LOVE IT. I loved Lies Beneath and marked Deep Betrayal as a "to read" on Goodreads before I finished book 1. I can't wait until March 2013 to get here so I can continue Calder's story.

If you haven't read Lies Beneath, you can read my 4 star review HERE (and then go get a copy for yourself).




Deep Betrayal (Lies Beneath #2)
It's been thirty days, two hours, and seventeen minutes since Calder left Lily standing on the shores of Lake Superior. Not that she's counting. And when Calder does return, it's not quite the reunion Lily hoped for. Especially after she lets her father in on a huge secret: he, like Calder, is a merman. Obsessed with his new identity, Lily's dad monopolizes Calder's time as the two of them spend every day in the water, leaving Lily behind.

Then dead bodies start washing ashore. Calder blames his mermaid sisters, but Lily fears her father has embraced the merman's natural need to kill. As the body count grows, everyone is pointing fingers. Lily doesn't know what to believe—only that whoever's responsible is sure to strike again. . . .
 


What do you think? It doesn't seem like a merfolk story at all when you look at the cover! I think that's one of the things that I like the most about it. Not to mention the obvious play on words with the titles: LIES Beneath.... What lies beneath the water's depths? What lies can you find beneath the water's edge? eh, eh?  and now we have Deep Betrayal. Again, an allusion to water's depth but so much more!

  1. I also loved Lies Beneath. And I can't wait to read Deep Betrayal and find out what is next for Calder and Lily.

  2. I read that this one was from Lily's point of view. But given the last book, I would think this location would be the most dangerous for them to be in considering who lies beneath. I'm glad I saw this so I can mark it to buy! Can't wait to read it myself!

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather.
