Today is the final day on Amanda Mahan's Book Tour for her debut release Heiress, P.I.
I'm lucky to be sharing the end today with gorgeous Catriona from The Fabulous Book Fiend blog who will have an interview with Amanda. Me, well I will be telling you all about Amanda and Heiress, P.I the best way I can, and that is in review form. Big shout out to the girls over at Gosling Girls Tours who have put together this tour. Brill.
So shall we get started ay?
About Amanda Mahan.
Amanda Mahan's secret mission began in high school when she won a writing competition with an essay about a skydiving trip. The fact that she never actually went skydiving suggested a career in fiction. After graduation, she spent several years writing comedic online games and worked on two NBC sitcoms. She was also the writer and creator of the People's Choice award-winning "Green Mommy" blog.
Amanda is an expert in applying lip balm, a complete failure at doing her own hair, and specializes in baking addictive red velvet cupcakes. She lives in the Bay Area with her husband, two munchkins, and entirely too much glitter.
Heiress, P.I. -- think Veronica Mars meets Gossip Girl -- is her first novel.
About Heiress, P.I.
Meet Lucy Hansen. She’s the richest teenager in the world – and possibly the shyest. She doesn’t flash her business to the paparazzi as she’s getting out of limos or send selfies while smoking salvia. No, Lucy hides behind her frizzy bangs, environmental causes and organic hemp-blend sweats. Her one true friend (and secret crush) Holden is the poorest kid in Beverly Hills – and probably the scrappiest. He interns for a famous private investigator, and when he asks Lucy to help him crack a case, her life turns from tame to tabloid, from glum to glam, from private to private eye. And when the trail leads directly to her hotel magnate father, it’s up to Lucy to solve the case by infiltrating Hollywood’s most elite and unwelcoming club: Celebutantes. Teens who are famous for, well… being famous.
Along the way, “LuHan” endures wardrobe malfunctions, fake romances, compromising videos-turned-YouTube hits, unflattering mug shots and – worst of all – a makeover. Now Lucy has to save her father, dodge the paparazzi, and keep her IRL ID on the DL – all while maybe, almost, possibly having her first real kiss.
If you’ve ever read the tabloids and wondered, “What was she thinking?” then HEIRESS, P.I. offers one possible answer.
Aaahhhh are you actually messing with that ending? I hate, I hate, I hate not knowing things! OK, yeah I love a cliff hanger, but not when you've half heartily liked a book until half way through then just as you're completely engrossed and loving it, it abruptly finishes. Oh I'm so unhappy. Amanda Mahan you so best get that sequel out soon lady.
After a rocky start, Heiress P.I turned out to be one hell of a ride. It had my eyes popping, my heart racing and my head near ready to explode. It's a fast-paced book of excitement, rohypnol and megayachts. Pink wigs and crystal tiara's. Secrets, lies, Greek hunks and sex tapes. Love, Paris, and the destiny of one families fortune and legacy.
A fantastic book that's bang on trend for 2014.
Thank you for joining me today .
I hope you'll get invoved and get yourself a copy of Heiress, P.I and see for yourself what a great book it is.
