Sixteen-year-old Trinity Monsour wants nothing more than to live a normal life. But that isn’t as easy as it seems. Trinity is different. She is special. She sees visions, and for those she’s seen, it’s already too late.

Trinity arrives on her aunt's doorstep in New Orleans with virtually no knowledge of her mysterious heritage. She begins settling into life at a new school and even starts making friends. But all too quickly her dreams accelerate; twisted, terrifying visions of a girl locked in a dark room. And when the head cheerleader, Jessica, goes missing, Trinity knows she has no choice but to step forward with what she's seen.

But people believe that Trinity has information about Jessica's disappearance not because of a dream, but because she is involved. She is kind-of dating Jessica's ex-boyfriend, Chase, and Jessica did pull a nasty prank on Trinity. Revenge seems like the likeliest scenario.

Nothing prepares Trinity for the dark odyssey that ensues while searching for Jessica, including the surprising romance she finds with Chase, or the shocking truths she learns, not just about the girl who has gone missing, but the past that has been hidden from her.
I love paranormal books! I mean, hello, *pokes blog title* - I didn't just throw in paranormal on a whim. That being said, this book sounds familiar yet somehow gives off uniqueness in waves. And the cover! I love. Especially the sparkling dragonfly pendant (hmm, wonder how it relates to the series?) she's wearing! Plus, it does help that there are various shades of purple thrown in the mix. I'm a huge purple fan, OBVS.

I was so happy and eager when Lindsay Cummings recruited me to promote the book. And because this book is too awesome NOT to share, Lindsay has graciously chosen Paranormal Indulgence as one of the blogs to host a giveaway for a signed finished copy of Shattered Dreams!

"Most people who know Ellie think she’s your nice, ordinary average wife and mom of two little kids. They see someone who does all that ordinary stuff, like grocery shopping, walking the dogs, going to baseball games, and somehow always forgetting to get the house cleaned and laundry done.

What they don't know is that more often than, this LSU J-School alum is somewhere far, far away, in an extraordinary world, deeply embroiled in solving a riddle or puzzle or crime, testing the limits of possibility, exploring the unexplained, and holding her breath while two people fall in love...

I've seen this one around lately and I agree that it sounds awesome! I would enter right away if I didn't live all the way over in Sweden, but I know the costs all to well, lol! Great giveaway though! I'm super curious about this one. :)
