Following Disasters Book Summary:
On her twenty-first birthday, Maggie Owen receives an unusual birthday gift: a house. That same day, the house’s owner, her aunt, dies. For three years, Maggie has been fleeing her childhood demons: the deaths of her parents, estrangement from her terminally-ill aunt, and a betrayal by her best friend. But now her career on the road, following natural disasters in temporary insurance claims offices, ends abruptly as Maggie returns home to face her past. But why does the house hold a mysterious spell over her? Why does she have the persistent feeling that her aunt is haunting her? Why did her aunt lie to her about the circumstances of her parents’ deaths? Who is the ghost child that may be hanging around the house? And what’s with the guy next door who seems so hostile toward her? FOLLOWING DISASTERS is tightly woven ghost story that raises questions about legacies and their influence on our choices.

First off I would like to say, like usual, how happy I was to be apart of this tour. This was a little different though, it did not sway to far from my usual reading tastes. In the beginning I did notice that I found myself reading a lot slower than usual, though this could be because I did not know what to expect, as I continued reading, I found my attention was caught and the need to see what happened next started to arise, though still at a steady pace.
I found this book to be a great read, it really introduced me to something new and fresh. It also had me really thinking about the possibility of something similar to the books plot actually happening, though I could already see that disclaimer, I’m sure you all know the one I am speaking about, the ones we see at the end of movies credits that go sort of like this: All people, places etc are purely by coincidence and are not related to any actual events, etc….I am sure you all know what I mean.
I would have to say this was quite a enjoyable read and really introduced me to something new, if your at home on a rainy day, as I was when I read the book, curl up with your blanket on your couch and dive right in.
