Welcome to my tour stop for Lindsey: Love and Intrigue by Kimberly Kolb. This is a young adult mystery and the tour runs Nov. 16-27th with reviews, interviews, guest posts and excerpts. Check out the tour page for the full schedule.
Fifteen-year-old Lindsey Morgan Brooks is still considered the new kid in the small town of Emit, Michigan. Both of her parents are lawyers, but her father has built his reputation prosecuting some of the worst criminals in New York and Chicago. Now, as a high school junior, she is trying to choose her own path.
Lindsey feels the demands and pressure from school, gymnastics, and her parents as she battles insecurities to build friendships while steering clear of the many land mines in high school-such as the group of popular girls she has dubbed the “Fab Five” Busy with activities and consumed with thoughts of her secret crush, Chris, she takes little notice of what’s happening around her.
She gets a flat tire, gets caught with the lights-out and starts receiving strange text messages-things she assumes are just high school pranks gone too far. Her father wants her to be able to handle herself, so she should be able to handle this.
But while she steals a glimpse at Chris, who is watching her?

PLEASE WELCOME KIMBERLY TO BOOKHOUNDS YA
Literally, I only keep an alarm clock and a lamp on my nightstand. If you asking what am I reading, currently I am reading Lucifer’s Hammer which is a post-apocalyptic science fiction novel by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, first published in 1977. This book was recommended to me by a friend and I am really enjoying it!
2. What author would you totally fan?
Tana French – I have enjoyed reading several of her books and have another in my stack to read.
3. What makes you cringe? Honestly, this question made me cringe! Not sure what you are looking for here but this is what comes to mind – indecisive people, blood and gore, and thrillers with a poor ending.
4. Since it is NaNoWriMo month, do you have any encouraging words for writers?
Write for yourself. Write because you enjoy the process and you believe in your story. Write about something that matters.
5. Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
