Release Day! Book Review: Die For Me by Amy Plum

Die for Me is the debut novel of Amy Plum, an Alabama native living the literary life in the suburbs of Paris, France. It would not be unusual to find Ms. Plum cranking out the pages of her Work-In-Progress in an ancient French castle. She puts the City of Lights to excellent use in the first book of this young adult, paranormal romantic trilogy.

Kate Mercier, age 16, a New Yorker living in Brooklyn, finds her life turned upside down in more ways than one when her parents die in a car accident. Kate and her sister leave their old life behind and try to start life afresh when they move to Paris to live with their grandparents. Kate hopes to lose herself and forget her pain in a world of books and art.

During one of her forages, she encounters a mysterious and extremely handsome young man named Vincent. Though cautious, Kate finds herself charmed and intrigued by him. As she spends time with him, she questions how much she really knows about him. Vincent seems to be hiding something.

If you're intrigued so far, feel free to stop by my site to continue reading the review. If you love romance and want a new, fresh spin on the paranormal, this book will satisfy you. An author interview is coming in the next few days as well. I think you'll find it interesting.

What a great cover that is. YA writing seems to go from strength to strength.

The author and her debut novel sound like a winner. I loved the few days I got to spend in Paris, and what a perfect setting for a paranormal romance. On my read asap list, thank you for sharing this find with us, June.
