Sun is shining and it’s time to say goodbye to our winter demons. Yes, demons. For me winter is the hardest and darkest time, and I bet half the Finns feels just like me. From October till the end of February it’s dark when we go to work and it’s dark when we come home…and cold…so, freaking cold! But on March…the days are brighter. Sun, which has been hiding someplace warmer, comes out, birds find their way back to Finland and the snow starts to melt. Air smells like spring!
So what better time for me to write the final part of my teen read, McLean Twins series, give hope for my characters and a promise of something good…I won’t tell you what will happen in that story. Not really. But I reveal this much…at least my teen witches will have a chance to beat the evil, get help from an unexpected direction, and find their inner strength on a moment all hope is gone…Yep, that’s it, zipping my mouth now 🙂
Shake your winter coat away, burn your face in the sun. Sing! Shout! Live! Spring is the best part of the year as everything, and I mean everything, awakes from the winter sleep…Pick up a new book. Pick up lots of books and lay on the grass with your bare feet being tickled by the grass. Smile! It’s spring!
And if you don’t know what book to pick, take a look at the books in this blog hop. Let the Rafflecopter pick you something surprising. Step out of your comfort zone and try something new. And please, please, remember to leave a positive review if you liked the new book you just read. It really is a best compliment an author can get!

Blurb of Black Diamond:
Part One of McLean Twins Series
After her mom’s sudden death, twelve-year-old Shannon McLean has to move from the US to the English countryside to live with her mysterious father, Connor McLean, whom she hasn’t seen since she was a baby. Soon she discovers that he doesn’t want her around and her moving into his huge manor, Greyman Hill, is nothing more to him than a compulsory deal. But if he does not exactly give her a warm welcome, his servant Robert is most likely an incarnation of evil. He runs the house with an iron touch and makes everyone who works there his little puppets.
Weird things start to happen and the whole place scares the crap out of Shannon. Her dad can control her just by looking at her. The walls are full of secret passages and apparently she has the talent to awaken the ghosts in them. Every day is worse than the day before and she wants badly to run away but discovers it’s impossible. If she wants to stay alive she has to do exactly as her dad says or else she will not only jeopardize her own life but also the lives of the people around her.
While Shannon struggles to find the magic inside her, Connor is slowly turning into a demon. One carelessly spoken word from her could either save or destroy them both. In the end she has to decide whether to save herself and her loved ones, or lose her dad to the darkness and evil that threaten to eat his soul.
