Blog Tour: Murder at Castle Rock

As the manager and booking agent for Atlanta’s famous Castle Rock concert venue, Amelia “Ame” Grace is ready for the most exciting week of her career: she’s booked three shows and a live DVD-filming for the comeback tour of none other than the eighties Pop Rock Prince himself, Bobby Glitter! Before the rock star can take a bow on the first night, however, trouble steals the show as Castle Rock’s owner takes a deadly tumble from atop the venue’s rear tower. To make matters worse, the police suspect foul play—and all signs point to two of Castle Rock’s own employees. Ame is in a race against time to clear the names of her friends and uncover the truth before the killer decides it’s curtains for her too!

This book is the first in the Amelia Grace music industry thriller series and was the winner of the 2012 AJC Decatur Book Festival & BookLogix Publishing Services, Inc. Writing Contest.

Author Bio:
Aside from my friends and family, I’m passionate about two things: writing and live music. When I can bring the two together, my life feels complete. I hadn’t written fiction since 6th grade until 2011 (because, of course, I’d replaced this creative outlet with live music performance while I played the saxophone from 6th grade through the end of college). I was fortunate enough to win the 2012 AJC Decatur Book Festival & BookLogix Publishing Services, Inc. Writing Contest with my manuscript for “Murder At Castle Rock,” and as a result, the novel will be published in March 2013. Being published has been a dream of mine since I began writing stories about the Easter Bunny in kindergarten–so, needless to say, I am beside myself with joy over this opportunity! I am currently working on several other projects, including a sequel to “Murder At Castle Rock” and another mystery series that takes place in the art world.

My Thoughts:
Amelia is a vivid character with a real spark that makes you want to help her piece together what's caused her life to get tossed upside down. She's tough, smart, snarky, and fiercely loyal to her friends. She is almost instantly likable and easy to root for. What happens on the first night of Bobby Glitter's comeback show is horrible! She loses someone she considers a friend in such a strange way, that it causes her to slide into "Scooby Doo" mode.  I enjoy that when the going gets tough, she just gets tougher!

This book is intense and written so well that it's hard to put down! I may even have to say that this book was flaw-free! At one point I was sure I knew who was behind the murders, then nuh uh..not them..then oooh I know..rinse repeat! Awesome build of suspense and mystery! It had me flipping the pages through til the wee hours of the night. I like books a lot but I LOVE my sleep, so that should tell you something about this book!

From start to finish this book had me guessing! I was pretty much floored by the ending! I loved it! This is the start of a great series, featuring Amelia Grace and I will certainly be anticipating the next mystery!
