Deadly Pretenses: A New Adult Paranormal Romance


Worth reading 😎

One tragedy. Two souls lost. Secrets will be revealed. There is a reason they cannot move on, and Collette is the answer.

Ghosts, vampires, reapers, and probably a whole lot more are in store with the Savannah Nights series. It sounds a lot like the Supernatural TV show, doesn't it? When you are young, everything seems so exciting and being "in love" is something that happens so quickly. It absorbs your thoughts, your morals may become a little misguided, and hormones are flying everywhere. As if that isn't enough, the trend seems to be that teenagers now hold the burden of the world on their shoulders where life and death are normal daily obstacles. Snowden brings a tragic, but captivating story to readers, one with paranormal elements, romance, mystery, and suspense.

Sebastian and Genesis are childhood lovers, about to graduate from high school, but fate has taken a turn for the worst. A horrific car accident throws the town into a temporary darkness, both teenagers forced to linger in-between life and death until the arrival of Collette Vaughn. Collette is not just a typical teenager; she sees ghosts among other things. One ghost, in particular, is trying to help her find the truth of what happened that fateful night. There is a reason she cannot move on, but Collette is the answer. Catching the eye of Sebastian's sexy younger brother makes things a little more complicated, but Collette is determined to find answers even if they are better left hidden.

Snowden's first installment, Deadly Pretenses, is an interesting start to a new world. There is creativity and original concepts within the story; however, the characters lack a bit of development. There were still some questions that the reader may find themselves having, and this may very well be Snowden's desire with the story. Regardless, there are several loose ends. The pace is very quick, making it easy to read through and the story is well-written with little to no spellings or grammatical errors. If you are a reader of paranormal suspense or paranormal romance, you may be interested in picking this book up. Since this is the first installment within the Savannah Nights, the reader is able to dive right in.
