~Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke
Hardcover, 368 pages
Expected publication: August 20th 2013 by Dial
You stop fearing the devil when you’re holding his hand…
Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town…until River West comes along. River rents the guesthouse behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more? Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery...who makes you want to kiss back. Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it.
Blending faded decadence and the thrilling dread of gothic horror, April Genevieve Tucholke weaves a dreamy, twisting contemporary romance, as gorgeously told as it is terrifying—a debut to watch.
~Why I love this cover:
Aaaahhh! It's just wonderful! I can't even look at it without wondering what is happening at the top of that rock. Love the waves below too. The moon is beautiful like that, slightly hidden. And I love the colors also of course, especially the word "Devil" in red.
Can't wait to get my hands on it!
