Thin Skin Soul Pinned  


Exotic items are invaluable and some only come around once in a lifetime. Marie Tousant, a native of the Bayou, finds herself in a dilemma when practitioners of the dark arts embark on an eternal hunt. An opposing force materializes and shares secrets that may save her from the grasp of evil. Fortunately, her allies are willing to protect her, even if it cost them their lives.

My Review:

This was such a great story. It follows a young girl through out her tragic life. It started off as a loving families story. One night the Marie Tousant and her mother experience a traumatic event in their back yard. Usually while I read a book, especially a mystery, I can guess what "it" is or "who" did it. I can't do that with Ballentine's books. Every time when I think I figured out the secret I find out that I wasn't even close! That's what I love about this author. It's a mystery right up till the end and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I loved ever aspect of this story, the families story, the childhood friendship, even the romance was sweet, and of course the mystery and horror aspect of the book was amazing. I can't wait to read the next book!

Goodbye Reality


While on a road trip, two friends make a pit stop in a quaint town. They spend more time there than they anticipated. It’s debatable if they’ll ever reach their destination or if they’ll live.

My Review:

Audrey and Johani are off to the latest gig. They decide to stop for bit of a break and get something to eat when they find out that the town isn't any ordinary town. This started out to be a fun road trip read for me. Reminded me of times when I went road tripping with my girlfriend. Thankfully Ballentine wasn't in charge of that trip!! She frightened and kept me in suspense throughout the whole story. Once again a very seemingly innocent story turns all kind of crazy and I loved every minute of it! The story grabbed me right from the beginning and I couldn't put it down till it was over. I just love Ballentine's books and she is definitely one of my one click authors!

In her own words…
My writing style is an extension of my wide-ranging imagination. I try to write my stories as if I have walked in the character’s shoes. Like most of my characters, I have many-sides. I enjoy exploring the struggles, triumphs, and vulnerabilities in their lives. After all, they are an important part of the story. Therefore, I strive to make the reader care about what happens in their lives.
