Sexual Inneundos, Drugs and Running. Odd combination but Lucy Christopher’s new thriller, The Killing Woods is jammed back with just that. Plus fatal attraction, primal fear and survival. Oh My!

A former Army family is shaken to its very core when the father emerges from the woods with a limp female body draped across his outstretched arms, but she’s not hurt… she’s dead. Panic ensues when the two main characters try to figure out who they can trust and who is responsible for the death of Ashlee Parker. Like any good book, The Killing Woods hooks you from the very beginning; What really happened in Darkwood? What is The Game? Who killed Ashlee Parker? Who can be trusted? Prepare to ask your doctor for a Xanax prescription because this tween novel is one anxiety attack after the next.

Erin Jean is a Boston based smart mouth who lives in suburbia with her kick-ass husband, yes you read that correctly, I'm a married woman, people! She graduated from Endicott College in 2010 with a degree in Contemporary Journalism. She loves tattoos, writing, and slush (it’s an addiction people). When she is not working for the man, she is riding on the back of motorcycles, online shopping, and reminiscing about her younger years. A typical week consists of watching too much Bad Girls Club, mentally preparing for a zombie apocalypse, and trying to get a body like Mila Kunis (please insert laughter here).
