Where Dead Bodies Lie Book Blitz

Where Dead Bodies Lie (The Body Dowser Series, #1)
Release Date: 12/16/14
Summary from Goodreads:
For as long as I can remember, I have been told to
follow three important rules;

Always guard my ability

Never share my secret

And pretend to be normal.However, those three little rules don’t make my life easier. I still find dead
people and deal with strange visions. Not to mention, an attraction to a boy
who doesn’t exist. Whenever we cross path’s he mists away like smoke on a
mirror. He drives me crazy, that Kaff Cooper.

As a flock of dead crows fall from the blackened sky, Kaff becomes the only one
who can see the truth straight to the dark underbelly of who I actually am.

My hands feel the pull to extract the forsaken, the lost, the forgotten. It
comes as naturally as breathing and there is no stopping it.

Excerpt:

She deposited a small pink Victoria’s Secret bag in my lap. “I ran out of wrapping paper so I had to regift in a used bag but I figured if this kept Clyde and me from getting burned in the kitchen, why not give them to you.” She smiled. “Anyway, this is more protective.”

Way too much information. I tore at the hot pink tissue, dug to the bottom, and plucked out the most hideous brown oven mitts I had ever seen. I looked up, annoyed. “I can’t wear these. They’re . . . they’re. . . .”

“Say it.”

“Butt ugly.”

“Then start a trend.”

“Where? The zoo?”

“The mitts are thermal lined in case dowsing burns your fingertips. It’s a safety precaution.” She stepped on the brake and we jerked forward. “You can’t afford to screw this up, girlfriend. Wear them when you feel the urge.”

“You’re giving me mixed messages. I have a lot of urges and none of them require oven mitts. Seriously. You know how humiliating this is for me? Now you want me to advertise my quirk with torch-blower gloves? Why not throw rotten tomatoes at me in a bell tower? Or send me to massage school where at least I’ll be admired for my vibrating hands.” Disgusted, I tossed the mitts at my feet.

Genre: World War II Historical-genealogy Mystery
Purchase: AmazonSynopsis via Goodreads:

The lamp tumbled to the floor. 
“No!”
I threw my arms out to try to catch it, but I was too late. 
Glancing back at the mess on the floor, I noticed a strange doily was tucked inside the lip of the vase lid. I pulled it out gently. Ribbon, on a doily? 
The left corner was burned, and the thin ribbon was sewed on one side. I held the bumpy fabric in my hands. How odd. Why would anyone stuff this in the lid of a vase?
 
Annaliese VanLuyk soon discovers there’s more than a hidden doily dating to World War II in this old Dutch house. It also contains a family mystery and she’s the only one who can solve it. Unfortunately this isn’t how her time in Netherlands is supposed to be spent. She’s here to be involved in the Plant Research Program at Wageningen University. With so much of her attention and energy being divided between her new friend, Nigel and solving this mystery, her stay in Holland could come to an end along with her career she’s always wanted.


Danette J. HansenAbout the Author

I wasn’t interested in writing until later in my life, but thinking back to my childhood I named everything I liked, so I guess it’s fitting that I now give names to characters in stories. The problem now is I have too many ideas and not enough time in the day. I’m a mother of four beautiful children, who are growing up much too fast. I’m married to the best guy in the world! We live in Northern Utah nestled in the mountain side.

EXCERPT
 
“Where’s your bike?” he asked.
“I don’t have one yet. But I know they are the main mode of transportation here.”
He walked over to the rack and said mischievously, “Yeah, they are. Well, you can ride on my handlebars.”
I laughed.
“Come on, it’ll take too long to walk.”
I ambled over to him as he unchained the sporty bike, trying to remember the last time I’d ridden on the handlebars. The space between them looked much too close of a squeeze and my mouth tightened.
“Oh come on, it’ll be fun.”
Seeing his enthusiasm fueled mine. “You think I’ll fit?”
Markus’s eyebrow lifted with a grin. “Turn around and I’ll. . .”
“Never mind.”
I straddled the front wheel and held onto the handlebars. “Okay.” I lifted myself onto the bar. “Hold it steady.” The cold bar made me laugh, hard. “Are you sure about this?”
Markus nodded and started pedaling while steadying our ride.

Excerpt

I couldn’t stop a teardrop from falling from my eyes.

His face crumpled, and he enveloped me in his arms as we sobbed into one another.

“I know what you’re doing. I’m not stupid,” he scolded me, his voice thick with tears. “You’re leaving me.”

“Oh, Dmitri, I am so sorry but I have to do this,” I said to him, tightening my hold on him. “I want you safe. I — I love you so much! I don’t want to see you get hurt because of me.”

“Idiot! You are already hurting me,” he said, trying to say it in a teasing manner but failing miserably. “I love you too, Anima. I have loved you all my life,” he confessed then rained kisses all over my face.

Gently, I cupped his face between my hands and kissed him softly on his lips. The kiss tasted salty from our tears, yet bittersweet with the emotion we both poured into it. My first kiss… and my last… from my beloved Dmitri. I felt my heart bleed when I ended it. I gently wiped away the tears from his cheeks.

“Take care, my love,” I whispered to him. “Be safe. I will come back for you.”

He turned his face to kiss my palm. His eyes begged at me. “You promise?”

I knew if I’d had a soul of my own I would have pledged it to him at that moment of time. “I promise,” I said to him in earnest. “Now go. Felicia and Claude will keep you safe.” Holding onto his hand, I gently pushed him towards the portal. I watched as with tears falling down his face he mouthed ”I love you”’ one last time and ghosted through. Then finally, I felt him let go when he crossed over.

 Excerpt

He grunted pushing up and landing on me with his full weight. He stared down at me with those deep brown eyes. My eyes moved down his face to his lips which were inches away from mine, just one move away from touching. I was frozen in the moment too shy to do anything but wait. I watched his eyes move from my eyes to my lips and sucked in a breath.

I laid there for a few moments confused. Was he going to kiss me? The opportunity had definitely presented itself! Slowly I sat up trying to follow him and act like nothing happened. “So should we give it a try?”

He shot a look at me clearly not understanding so I pointed to the boards.

“Surfing? Should I try to get up?”

He shook his head before standing up and reaching his hand out to help me up. I took it and met his eyes when we were next to each other again. He looked like he was about to say something, but turned and led the way to the boards.
