  Sarah’s Review: I enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to see what happens to Avery in the second book, The Unraveling of Avery Snow. 
Overview: Avery Snow led a boring, no thrills life. After her father left the family when she was young, Avery’s mother died when she was only twelve, leaving her all alone except for her Aunt Paulina. Now, at twenty-six, Avery is very used to being lonely. She enjoys her job at Sunrise Estates, it’s the one place where she doesn’t feel left out. Her boss, Kerri, is her best friend and Lucy O’Shea, a resident at the home, is a good friend to her as well. The night Lucy dies in Avery’s arms she delivers a haunting message to Avery. She tells her that there is a man looking for her from a past life. And he will stop at nothing to have her. Now Avery is unable sleep for more than a few hours, her dreams are keeping her awake. She is too terrified to sleep for the dreams are too vivid and too real. The only catch? She cannot remember what they are about. Until her Spirit Guide, Ianni, comes to help. Ianni shows Avery her past lives and tells her about the man who is stalking her soul. Now Avery remembers every life she has ever lived and she remembers the man she shared them with. He will not give up until she falls in love with him. The problem is Avery is in love with someone else. Ianni must help keep Avery from making the wrong choice. One her soul doesn’t want. She also must keep her safe from the Dark Guides who are after Avery. Now Avery must make choices she never has before. This once lonely girl is now surrounded by Spirit Guides, psychics, Demonic Angels and two men fighting for her love. Do you believe in reincarnation and a love that can last lifetimes?
Overview: Even the strongest love can unravel…

she fights to forget her past lives. Those of which she spent with Landon.
Landon still has no recollection of who she really is and it seems better that
way. Even though she still feels a draw to his soul, she chooses to ignore
For now everything is fine. Her boyfriend, Dallas, has opened a new
restaurant. Her friends, Ianni and Kerri are settling into their lives as well.
But when news of a new Dark Guide is revealed, Avery is forced to start thinking
about the life she truly leads. One that is very abnormal. One she is desperate
to forget. This Dark Guide is determined to make Avery pay for the death of
someone she held dear.
Now Avery’s life went from seemingly perfect to
falling apart. What will be at stake now? Her life? Her love?
And who will be
there in the end to help her up off the ground? Even the strongest love can
unravel. Will Avery be able to hold it all together, or will she just let
Overview: Ianni gave up her angelic existence to save a human soul. Killing the Dark
Guides caused her to be banished from Heaven. Now she will be sent to earth to
live as a human. But becoming a human is complicated. She must learn their ways
and try to let go of her past life as a Spirit Guide. As if that wasn’t hard
enough, now she learns there is a new threat to her friends. Will Ianni strive
in her new skin or fail miserably?
Follow Ianni’s new path in this novella of The Past Lives Series.
: I haven’t read this book yet but I do own it on my Kindle and it is on my TBR list for this year! 

 Overview: Some secrets should never be revealed…

Brylee Branson begrudgingly made
the excruciating move with her family from the warm sandy beaches of California
to small town living in New Jersey. As if she wasn’t miserable enough, they’ve
moved into a creepy old house that everyone in the area claims is haunted.
Brylee dismisses the idea of ghosts and hauntings, until she begins to see and
hear things that can’t be explained…

Brylee has no choice but to seek the
help of new friends to unlock the secrets of this place she now calls home. But
some secrets should never be revealed. Can the teens find a way to release the
spirits imprisoned within the walls? Or will the curse claim them, too?

You can get Christy’s books from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Sarah’s interview with Christy Sloat

When is The Crimson Key due out?
This summer. I am shooting for August

Who inspires you to write?
My kids do. My grandmother gave me the push years ago. I write now for my little girls so that they know anything can be achieved with a little hard work and determination.

If you could interview any author who would it be?
Right now I am crushing hard on Margaret Stohl. She co-writes the Beautiful Creatures books. I met her in SC last year and she was so sweet. I just want to sit and have lunch with her!

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I crochet, read, watch movies on the couch with my hubby. I try to travel every year as well.

Favorite place to travel?
Last year I went to WA and had so much fun out there. I want to go back so bad. I literally think about it everyday. That’s normal right?

What book are you reading now?
Currently reading ‘Blood Promise- Vampire Academy’

I see you are a Harry Potter fan. What would your patronus be?
Oh I love this question! I also love that you noticed that! My patronus would be a whale. Can you imagine this huge whale patronus coming at you? Awesome.

I also know you are a Twi-Hard. What would your vampire power be?
My Vamp super power would be to read minds like my boyfriend. You know my boyfriend right? Edward? Yeah he is my boyfriend 🙂 Shh don’t tell Bella.

Anything else we should know about you?
I may love to write but reading is my first love. I read every night to my kids and then I take time to myself to read. I think its very important to read and I try to fit it in. I am obsessed with Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. No joke! And I love to laugh. That’s it, I think…
