Mirror Deep Blog Tour/Giveaway and My Own Review!

Welcome to my tour stop for Mirror Deep by Joss Landry. This is an adult/new adult romantic suspense and the tour runs January 13-31st with mostly reviews.  Be sure to stop by the tour page for the list of tour stops.

Mirror Deep by Joss Landry
Genre: Romantic Suspense recommended for 16+
Length: 456 pages
Release date: Oct. 2012


Katherine Bonner with the golden eyes and a golden, enchanted life is well on her way to becoming a horse whisperer. Tall, athletic, she loves to ride, and she can usually exact good behavior from most wild steed, except from Pierce who bucks her at every crack of the whip.

Pierce is top honcho in charge of the fifteen hundred acre ranch, Bonner-Willow. Although he owns a Master’s in business administration, he loves to be around horses. He considers himself more of a cowboy than a CEO.

When Kat becomes the bearer of unexpected news about her past from ex-convict, ex-lawyer Victor Horn, she wonders how she will ever find her roots and manage to put the pieces of her life back together again. She turns to Pierce, the dark hair and blue eyed hunk whom Kat believes, thinks he is God's gift to women.

Pierce reluctantly agrees to help, partly for reasons of his own. He worries about his lawyerly father being involved with Victor's murder. As Pierce and Kat travel to Chicago together, they walk right into a criminal investigation headed by two bumbling detectives. Kat makes a date with a potential serial killer, and Pierce, whose affection for Kat is slowly changing to one of deeper commitment, worries about her safety. Meanwhile, Kat bumps into a doppelganger she believes is stalking her, only to discover that no one else ever sees her.

Mirror Deep uncovers many twists and turns designed to keep the reader guessing until the end. Through all the action, Pierce remains by Kat's side. Will he be able to hide from Kat his mounting desire? Will Kat find who this look alike is and why she is trying to warn her? Does Kat follow a stranger to Paris, France simply to put miles between her and Pierce or to avoid the threat of a potential killer?

My Review of Mirror Deep

I was not sure what this book would be like when I started it, but after reading the first few chapters and learning about Kat's life and what has happened to her, it caught my attention and "let the story begin" so to speak :)  I loved it!  Never a dull moment, and the characterization in the book is excellent!  I fell absolutely in love with Pierce - he is YUMMY!  I love cowboys and Pierce is not only a rancher but he also has a bit of class that makes him irresistible to both the reader AND Kat.  The relationship between Kat and Pierce is at first a little disconcerting because they are related, but it does make for a great storyline as it ends up!

This book is NOT for the faint of heart or those who do not enjoy "adult" books though.  There is a lot of adult language and scenes in this book, but it is worth it.  

 I received a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for this blog tour :)
