GIVEAWAY: The Restorer

I recently received the Graveyard Queen series by Amanda Stevens from a friend. I liked book one, The Restorer, so much that I've decided to give away a copy I picked up used in like-new condition (seriously--the spine isn't even cracked!). Here's the back cover blurb:




Never acknowledge the dead.

Never stray far from hallowed ground.

Never get close to the haunted.

Never, ever tempt fate.


My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to these rules passed down from my father . . . until now.

Detective John Devlin needs my help to find a killer, but he is haunted by ghosts who shadow his every move. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the headstone symbols lead me closer to truth and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next.


The Restorer is book one of a trilogy that should be read in order. Like the sound of this one and think you might like to read it? Let me know in the comment section that you would like to be entered in the drawing.

I will accept entries through Sunday, August 26, at midnight central time. Sorry--due to mail costs, this contest is restricted to those in the US. You will need to check back at this post Monday, Aug 27, to see if you have won, and email a shipping address within 48 hours.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for a little Teaser Tuesday snippet. Good luck!

Oh yay! I'm so glad you liked it. :) She's supposed to be publishing three more to this series beginning sometime next year, I think. :)

This sounds like an awesome story. I need to check this one out.

Heather said...

Jana: More?! Must check that out... *g*

Shelley: Seeing as how we both appreciate rom-suspense with a touch of the paranormal, I think you would like this one as much as I did. ;-)

Pamela said...

Sounds like a good one. Thanks.

Hey Heather,

The Restorer sounds like my kind of book and if the second was so good you stayed up most the night to finish it--I want to check out this series. Thanks for the tip.

Heather said...

Brenda: You're welcome for the recommendation. I'll consider you entered along with Pamela and Alice! :)
