Atonement Tennessee

25213788SYNOPSIS: Esmeralda Lawton is sick of the big city. “Ralda” was betrayed until trust became a theoretical concept. So it’s a dream come true when she buys an old estate, complete with historic cemetery. Okay, she isn’t excited about the cemetery, but she’s strangely drawn to the estate. Atonement, Tennessee, a quaint town, seems like the perfect place for her. However, her new life isn’t quiet.

The house is full of antiques. Some have extraordinary properties — a brass bed causes strange dreams, and a mirror shows the truth of who you are.

A mysterious neighbor secretly watches over the graveyard. There’s more to him than meets the eye, but what? Then there’s Gwydion, owner of Fae’s Flowers. She stubbornly resists her feelings for him.

Ralda suspects that people are drawn to Atonement to, well — atone. She wonders what sins led her there. However, her ancestress made the mistakes.

Atonement is home to more than humans. Supernaturals go there too. Some have fallen far.

This urban fantasy, seasoned with Celtic mythology, comes with a side-order of mystery. Are you sad to see the “Sookie Stackhouse” stories end? Make a visit to Atonement, Tennessee!

REVIEW: This has to be one of the most intriguing stories I’ve ever read; I didn’t want it to end! The characters are fascinating and draw you in. I especially love, Lillith, the cat… The way Teagan brings across Lillith’s pov without disrupting the flow of everything going on is nothing short of amazing.

The story is full of mystery with dark fantasy weaved in very intricately. Best of all, nothing is too predictable and there are plenty of surprises.

As already stated, I didn’t want this story to end, and I can’t wait to see what Teagan Genevieve brings out next… A solid five-star work!

    I don’t often do a mid-week post, especially when I’m having workweek that sends my mind to a medieval dungeon. Then the knightly Kev appeared on the scene with this wonderful review of my novel. “Atonement, Tennessee”… The courageous Kev slayed my sorcerer of negativity and banished the dragon of self-defeat when I read his words about my words. So enough of my words and on to his! Yes, please do read his review. But also treat yourself to exploring the rest of his website. Beyond this point there be… Kev!

  16. Dear Kev, I am both honored and humbled by your extraordinary review. Thank you kind sir. It’s been a difficult week, but you’ve made my spirits soar.
    Yes, I’m working on book 2 when I can, but my “real job” gets in the way. That will be “Atonement in Bloom” where magic wreaks havoc in the most unexpected ways with the lives of the townspeople of Atonement, Tennessee. I think it’s a little more humorous too, but only a slight departure.
    Wishing you and yours a wonder-filled weekend. Mega hugs!

    • So happy to hear that it brought up the spirits, Teagan… I’ve been meaning to read and review your book for quite a while. I can’t wait for Atonement in Bloom, and what a fitting title! Take care and have a great weekend ahead. 🙂
