I am so excited to be a part of this blog tour! I was initially drawn to Embrace by the gorgeous cover and the plot. It sounded amazing, and I was curious to see if this book would deliver. Well, let me tell you, deliver it DID!

Will she be able to figure out what's causing all of these strange things before her best friend is committed permenantly? Or will she be too late?
Embrace really shocked me by how amazing it was! I was not expecting to like it so much, and I was very pleasantly surprised when I did. I read the whole thing in one day, which for me doesn't happen too often. It was an intoxicating story that sucked me in and had me guessing the entire time!
I don't want to give too much away, because it was amazing and you should definitely check it out for yourself. It had elements of mystery, suspense and intrigue coupled with true love, and friendship. I really enjoyed reading this novel and hope you decide to check it out for yourself.
