Tour!! A Review of Betwixt by Melissa Pearl, Plus a Top 10 List!

Betwixt (Betwixt #1) by Melissa Pearl 
Genre: Mature Young Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: November 5, 2012
Publisher: Self

Beautiful, wild-child Nicole Tepper is hit by a car and left for dead. But when she wakes the next morning, Nicole finds herself in bed without a scratch. Perhaps she was more intoxicated than usual, as her mother is giving her the silent treatment and her friends are ignoring her as well. 

Things take a turn for the weird when Nicole soon discovers she is actually hovering between life and death. Her body is lying in the forest while her spirit is searching for anyone who can hear her. Unfortunately the only person who can is Dale Finnigan, the guy she publicly humiliated with a sharp-tongued insult that has left him branded.

Desperate, Nicole has no choice but to haunt Dale and convince the freaked-out senior to help her. Will he find her body before it's too late? Or will the guy who tried to kill her with his car, beat him there and finish her off before anyone finds out?

 Betwixt is the first book in the Betwixt series by Melissa Pearl. The main characters, Nicole and Dale, are two people who've had a lot happen in their young lives. Their friendship was one of necessity on her part, but I loved watching it grow. They were both on the wild side before something traumatic happened to them. Dale was already getting his life together before helping Nicole. She wasn't very nice to him before her accident, but I think he knew where she was coming from and related her more and more as he got to know her. In a similar way, I liked both of them more and more as I learned more about them. They both had spunk. The story offered romance, humor, and some definite suspense. This was a wonderful story about starting over and moving on.

Betwixt by Melissa Pearl was provided to me by Xpresso Book Tours for review. The opinions are my own.

Top 10 Places I've Visited by Melissa Pearl

 1. Te Anau (a little town in the South Island of NZ, just near Queenstown)

2. Washington DC ­ loved all the memorials and museums. Very cool layout too.

3. San Francisco ­ such a funky city. So interesting.

4. Burlington, Vermont ­ it's lovely ­ beautiful, peaceful. I'd move there in a heartbeat if I

was allowed to :)

5. Vancouver ­ it reminds me of Auckland, but cooler because it has these wicked mountains nearby. My husband and I spent two weeks there and loved it.

6. Boston ­ probably because we watched a free performance of Taming of the Shrew on the Boston Common. It's one of my favorite memories from our USA road trip.

7. New York ­ like one of the coolest cities ever! Time Square? Need I say more :)

8. London ­ so much history and another wicked city that you could spend days getting lost in and remain entertained and happy the whole time.

9. Las Vegas ­ LOVED it. We stayed up until 3 am one night just walking up and down the strip. There's no other town like it.

10. Savannah ­ the architecture and layout of that city was so completely cool. We had such a fun time exploring.
Melissa Pearl was born in Auckland, New Zealand, but has spent much of her life abroad, living in countries such as Jordan, Cyprus and Pakistan… not to mention a nine month road trip around North America with her husband. “Best. Year. Ever!!” She now lives in China with her husband and two sons. She is a trained elementary teacher, but writing is her passion. Since becoming a full time mother she has had the opportunity to pursue this dream and her debut novel hit the internet in November 2011. Since then she has produced four more books and has a YA fantasy trilogy coming out this year. Unknown and Unseen (The Elements Trilogy) out now!

“I am passionate about writing. It stirs a fire in my soul that I never knew I had. I want to be the best writer I can possibly be and transport my readers into another world where they can laugh, cry and fall in love.”
