First Impression by Pauline Creeden - My Thoughts


First Impression

A Shadow Maven Paranormal

Chira Kelly thought she didn’t need anyone…until she met Ben.

 Because of one ugly rumor, Chira lives as an outcast at her school. Which is fine with her, because she works better alone. Always has, always will. And at least she has her one and only true friend, Tasha. When Tasha insists that they join a group to visit a possibly haunted abandoned old schoolhouse, she's wary, but joins her friend. Because of that decision, their lives are in jeopardy as a malevolent spirit targets the group. Tragedies and accidents pick them off one by one, and Chira finds herself drawn to the one person who can see the truth. But can he protect her?

My Review:
Fabulous writing and great great characters kept this YA book's mystery plot sailing along. Chira was a strong and likable character who's meeting of the new boy, Ben, seems to change everything for her. You will fall in love with this unusual, but kind character. Any guy with an owl on his shoulder is okay in my book!

Author Pauline Creeden did a fabulous job of leaving bread crumbs throughout the book... but don't get too comfortable with your theories, some turns will surprise you.

This book exceeded my expectations for a YA paranormal mystery. What can I say? I just love haunted houses. I think this is going to be a great new series to have on this Summer's reading list.

Author Bio:

In simple language, Pauline Creeden creates worlds that are both familiar and strange, often pulling the veil between dimensions. She becomes the main character in each of her stories, and because she has ADD, she will get bored if she pretends to be one person for too long. Pauline is a horse trainer from Virginia, but writing is her therapy. Her books have hit #1 on the Amazon Bestseller List and Armored Hearts won the 2013 Book Junkie’s Choice Award in Historical Fiction. First Impression: A Shadow Maven Paranormal is her first mystery. It’s a dark urban fantasy and will be released March 24, 2014.
