First, my apologies today to Lexi George, who was supposed to be my interview guest today…and I cannot find her Q&A. I swear, Lexi, I never do that. And she’s out of town for the weekend. So I promise, I’ll get her on here next week to talk about her faboo new book, Demon Hunting in the Deep South. (I hope she doesn’t send any demons after me. Thankfully, she’s like the nicest person you’d ever want to meet.)
So today, we’re going to look at a book that’s caught my interest because, well, it’s about Amish people and vampires. And how fascinating is that? I lived in Illinois for a while, and there was a large Amish community nearby; I used to drive over and visit one of the farms and it would be so fascinating to find the “plain” folk living the way they wanted to and as their beliefs dictated within the larger community–in it but not of it.
Today’s featured book is an August 1 release by Leanna Ellis called Plain Fear: Forbidden. Want to get a copy to try for yourself?
ABOUT PLAIN FEAR: FORBIDDEN: Rachel Schmidt Nussbaum, a young widow, is now seven and a half months pregnant with her first child. She blames herself for her husband Josef’s death and she believes that she is being punished by God for her past sins. So when a stranger arrives claiming to be an old friend from her wilder years, saying only she can fix things for him, for Josef, and for herself, she makes an impulsive decision to follow him. Thus begins a journey that will lead Rachel to the depths of ultimate danger, the potential for new love, and a battle that will decide both the fate of her soul and the life of her unborn child.
I can honestly say I’ve never read a book that combined Amish and vampires. Have you? What’s the most unusual vampire setting you’ve ever read?
