ADVENT CALENDAR Day 22 - Welcome Emily Hainsworth! WIN AN ARC!!!

Is your holiday shopping done?? MINE ISN’T! So let me tell you about TAKE THE FALL (release 2/16/16) because books are calming! Stick around to the end of this post and get a chance to win a signed ARC of the book! 

Oh, and hi, I’m Emily Hainsworth. :)

TAKE THE FALL is my second book, but it’s my first straight-up contemporary novel, and my first straight-up mystery! My debut, THROUGH TO YOU (2012), had some mysterious elements, but there was also an other-worldly green light, a portal to a parallel world, and some serious inter dimensional heartache. While no one in TAKE THE FALL is able to visit a world where their circumstances turned out differently, they sure spend some time wishing they could. ;) 


Fear grips the residents of Hidden Falls the night Sonia Feldman and her best friend, Gretchen Meyer, are attacked in the woods. Sonia was lucky to escape with her life, but Gretchen’s body is discovered at the bottom of a waterfall. Beautiful, popular, and seemingly untouchable, Gretchen can’t be gone. Even as Sonia struggles with guilt and confusion over having survived, the whole town is looking to her for information…. Could she have seen something that will lead the police to the killer? 

At the top of the list of suspects is Gretchen’s ex-boyfriend—and Sonia’s longtime enemy—Marcus Perez. So when Marcus comes to Sonia for help clearing his name, she agrees, hoping to find evidence the police need to prove he’s the killer. But as Gretchen’s many secrets emerge and the suspects add up, Sonia feels less sure of Marcus’s involvement and more afraid for herself. Could Marcus, the artist, the screwup, the boy she might be falling for, have attacked her? Killed her best friend? And if it wasn’t him in the woods that night…who could it have been?

Win a signed ARC of TAKE THE FALL to enjoy in your post-holiday fog! (Open to people with a U.S. address only, sorry!) All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below—tell us what books you’re looking forward to reading in 2016!
