Blog Tour Stop and Review- Bloodstone Heart by T. Lynne Tolles

 Release Notes is honored to be a tour stop for CBL Promotions Featured Author T. Lynne Tolles and her fantastic new novel "Bloodstone Heart". The review is posted below but first, why don't you see what the book is about for yourself!

Josh Brenner is a good looking guy with an extraordinary talent he thinks is a curse - He's telepathic and he can't find the mute button, so he lives in solitude only coming out at night. But Josh isn't the only supernatural out and about this cold March night, because when Josh returns from his midnight run to the store to avoid people, he runs smack into a hungry agitated vampire looking for something and Josh is in his way.

Horrified by what he's seen and barely escaping with his life, he confides in a woman he barely knows, but has an instant connection with. When another vampire shows up looking for the first, Josh and his friend Lanie find themselves running for their lives and head to Oljone, California where a friend of Lanie's from College has helped her with a supernatural problem in the past.

But when they get to California with the vampire hot on their trail, they find Darby, Lanie's college pal, has moved to Massachusetts in search of her vampire boyfriend Devon. Luckily Darby's sister Rowan and Devon's vampire brother, Blake, step in and help Josh and Lanie as best they can.

The four work together along with Dean (a werewolf) and his girlfriend Sally (a witch) to figure out this crazy mystery. What does this determined vampire want and why? And is he willing to kill for it? As this mystery unfolds, so do other darker mysteries. Will they figure things out in time before some is killed? You'll just have to read it to see!

About the Author:
Born and raised in Silicon Valley, T. Lynne Tolles is a stay-at-home mom, part-time bookkeeper and writer. In the summer of 2009 she claims she got a 'wild hair' and sat down in front of her computer and wrote "Blood of a Werewolf'" in three weeks. She started "Blood Moon" and "Blood Lust" back to back, the following week.

Bloodstone Heart was a fascinating read from beginning to end!  We are introduced to Josh, a young man with the ability to hear others' thoughts and can't turn it "off".  He spends his time alone, doing what he can to shield himself from the world. A chance meeting with Melanie brings peace and quiet to his life.  As they grow closer, his life is changed after he attacked and kills a vampire.    Suddenly, he and Melanie are in danger from other vampires and they have to fley, traveling across country to find a solution to their problem.  Seperated in an effort to help each other, Melaine and Josh encounter danger and new friends along the way.

This book was a true pleasure to read. T. Lynne Tolles did a wonderful job with the characters and the plot.  The characters were fully developed and it was easy to become attached to them and hope for the best outcome!  The story was filled with intrigue and it left a cliffhanger that has you eagerly awaiting the next story!  I can't wait to see more of the Melanie and Josh saga!
