Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
By April Genevieve Tucholke
Publication date is August 15th, 2013
You stop fearing the devil when you’re holding his hand…
much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town…until
River West comes along. River rents the guesthouse behind Violet’s
crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet
begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a
crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he
be something more? Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the
Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps
in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery...who makes
you want to kiss back. Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t
see straight. And that’s just how River likes it.
decadence and the thrilling dread of gothic horror, April Genevieve
Tucholke weaves a dreamy, twisting contemporary romance, as gorgeously
told as it is terrifying—a debut to watch.
