Reincarnation sucks! Unless it comes with a cute guy. That’s what sixteen year-old Layla Bradford discovers when she moves to Sky Cove, Maine, a small-town she thought was ordinary, but turns out to be an episode of “Cold Case” on steroids.
Layla doesn’t want to fit in; she wants to blend in and stay out of the spotlight. But the spotlight is where she winds up when she catches the eye of school cross-country star and all-around-nice-guy Lucas Ellis. She quickly learns there’s more at stake than high school reputations when she and Lucas discover they are the reincarnations of a young married couple from the mid-1800s who suffered a horrible tragedy at the hands of a madman who was never brought to justice. After a series of frightening visions show Layla and Lucas glimpses of their past-lives, they realize that the villain of their previous existence has also been reincarnated, in the form of a fellow high school student who targets them with teenage pranks that soon turn dangerous. As they grow closer, will Layla and Lucas be able to uncover the truth in time to stop the same tragedy from unfolding once again?

Thoughts from Amy:
Sometimes people ask me why I like to read so much. When that happens, I find myself wanting to ask them, “How can you NOT love reading?”
Reading is an adventure. I’ve been all over the world thanks to books. Even though I’ve never traveled to Europe, in many ways I feel like I’ve been to Ireland, Scotland, London, Paris, Rome, and lots of other places! Not only that, reading has allowed me to learn about things I never would’ve known otherwise. I know a bunch of stuff about saturation diving and archaeological recovery, baking wedding cakes and creating floral arrangements, buying antiques and decorating houses, and countless other interesting topics that learned about through books.
One of my favorite things about reading is the fact that I’m learning as I’m being entertained. When I’m caught up in a story, I don’t even realize that I’m learning! How cool is that? To learn without even trying!
This summer, I hope all you tweens and teens will take advantage of your free time and enjoy the wonderful worlds that books have to offer! Go on an adventure! It’s as easy as opening a book!

About my book, Veiled Virtues:
When Paige Stewart left America to house-sit in England, her only thoughts were to get away from her controlling mother and to have fun. Little did she know that her working holiday would find her hearing eerie voices, experiencing alarming dreams and bleeding from old scars. Although Paige's differences confuse and disgust her, she opens up to the shopkeeper of a strange metaphysical store in town, where she finds much more than tarot cards and crystals. Soon, Paige is stalked like prized game. Relentlessly pursued, her holiday takes a turn for the eerie and dangerous. Her only saving grace may be a modern-day English knight who sweeps her off her feet and recognizes the true virtues the American teen unknowingly possesses.
