On Tour: Spun by Catherine McKenzie, and a Giveaway!


Spun by Catherine McKenzie
Paperback and e-book, 142 pages
Published April 29th 2014 by Catherine McKenzie

In this funny and touching novella, bestselling author Catherine McKenzie returns to the story of Amber Sheppard, It Girl and celebrity train wreck from McKenzie’s reader-favourite novel, Spin.

Life has been rough for starlet Amber since leaving rehab. She’s been two years sober, but no one seems to believe her -- not the gossip media, not casting agents, and most certainly not her spotlight-loving parents. With her friendships ruined by betrayal and her career at a standstill, Amber’s just trying to get her life back on track. 

It doesn't help that her former love, movie star Connor Parks, keeps trying to draw Amber back in, not just to their relationship but to his hard-partying ways. One fateful night, Amber breaks down and agrees to join him on board his private jet as it readies for take-off -- a decision that will change her life forever and expose her to a whole new level of scrutiny and heartbreak.

My thoughts about Spun ~~

Spin was the very first book of Catherine's that I read and I have been a big fan of hers ever since. I was so excited when I heard she was writing a follow up story to Spin and that we would be able to find out how Amber, Connor, and Katie were doing after their stint in rehab. Even though it had been a few years, I was able to hop right back into their lives and enjoy another great story.
'That's what they say. That life's all about second chances. This is what makes you believe it's worth cleaning up your act, staying sober - that chance at a second chance. A different life than the hell you created for yourself.'
Amber still has some issues that she needs to work through and her life is not easy by any means.
'So, you're probably asking yourself, How does a girl, even a shallow, disaster-actress girl like me whose long-term love just dies, forget she has a fiance?'
I loved this journey back to this world, with the people I met in Spin. I felt like I was catching up with old friends and learning all about the good things, and not so good things, that happened while we were apart.

And I enjoyed yet another great read by one of my must-read authors! Thanks for the wonderful story, Catherine!
