Perilous by Tamara Hart Heiner & Give Aways

Do you remember some of my previous posts where I said I'm really far behind in my book reviews? Yeah, I'm still behind. But I'm planning to do a TON of reading once December hits. So watch for the reviews to roll in!

Today, I was scheduled to review Perilous by Tamara Hart Heiner. While I have not been able to read the book yet, I wanted to be sure to post today because Tamara is hosting some really awesome giveaways during her blog tour. So, let's begin with some info about her new release!

Perilous by Tamara Hart Heiner

Jaci Rivera has plans for her sophomore year: go to regionals with the track team, make the honor roll, and eat too much pizza with her best friends, Callie and Sara. Her biggest concern is Amanda, the pushy girl who moved in a few months ago.

What she doesn't plan for is catching a robber red-handed, or being kidnapped. The desperate thief drags her and her friends 2,000 miles across the Canadian border. They escape from his lair, only to find that he has spies and agents watching their path home, waiting to intercept them and take them back.

Then Jaci finds something out about her family. Something which irrevocably connects her to their kidnapper, and makes her question their chances of escape.


And to tease you just a little more . . . here is the Perilous book trailer:




You can buy the Perilous E-book here
 or purchase a bound book on Amazon.com.



 This would make a great Christmas gift for anyone who likes mysterious suspense novels!

And now, for the Give Aways!

I'm really looking forward to reading Tamara's book, whether or not I win the free copy.

Also, I wanted to say that I admire you whole heartedly for what you do for your children, and to have written a book to help others is just icing on the cake. Please don't ever think you're a crappy mom. You're just human, but you're the one who choses every morning to do what is right and succeed. When you might see yourself as a 2 on the scale, we all see you as a 10 of 10!!!

Now I don't feel so bad that I didn't read Perilous before posting my tour stop. I'm doing a stop on the book tour tomorrow and will be linking to this post as well as the other stops on Tamara's tour. At least we're giving our support!
By the way, I've signed up to follow your blog.

I didn't win the first free book so I ordered one and am looking forward to reading it!

Review Disclaimer: Sometimes a book I review has been sent to me for free by a publisher or an author. This in no way effects my review, which is my own opinion about whether the book was a good read for me, fit my tastes, and if I would recommend it to others. Other than possibly a free book, I am not compensated in any way for posting a review.
