"Lucy Crumb" by Catherine Karp

Plus a new review: -- THE YEAR THE CLOUD FELL


"BLOOD WILL TELL shakes up everything you thought you knew about vampires, reconstructing legends into a fresh story that keeps your mind fully engaged. It is great to see a writer dare to change long established fictional canons in such a pleasing way. Both hero and heroine are strongly principled and have great strength of character. Small town life is well portrayed, and fans of Ms. Lorrah's past books may see an inside joke or two." Reviewed by Amanda Killgore for TRCC. 4 STARS

BLOOD WILL TELL by Jean Lorrah . Read the first chapter and download a *FREE SHORT STORY* .
