I wasn’t sure what to expect when I began reading this story. There were ‘ah-ha’ moments as well as ‘for real’ moments in this story. It was very interesting to be in the head of Jacy and experiencing her inner thoughts and issues. Tantalizing tale that has you reading to the end for the answer!
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
About the Book
She’s funny, cynical, and kinda crazy, but she knows how to tell a story. A struggling writer living in Manhattan, Jacy McMasters is the first to admit she’s a terrific liar and a screw-up. Then the ghost of the famous novelist JD Balinger asks her to “channel” a follow-up to his classic coming of age book, The Watcher in the Sky. Along with her new boyfriend, a bear of a man who has no patience for mind games, the ghost in Jacy’s head forces her to confront a lifetime of secrets—dark secrets.
Secrets she’s been keeping from herself.

Songs of the Maniacs was published by Salt Publishing in 2014 (UK). Salt will release her new crime novel in 2017.
