Evil Forebodings: For Some, The Fight Has Just Begun By Carol Keen

I received this book from Celebrate Lit Blogging Program and the author for no charge in exchange for my honest review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Book Description:


Tiffany Rodgers is the kind of danger that she never dreamed could happen to her in the quiet little town of Newville. She is being stalked and having strange visions. The animals even seem different of late, somehow affected by the changes in the air. Officer Allen Lawrence is drawn to Tiffany, but he has reservations. Is she losing her mind, playing games, or are the things that she is seeing more than just evil forebodings?


My Thoughts:

Evil Forebodings is the first book by Carol Keen I have read and it was good. I am a huge fan of Christian Suspense and Mystery so when I read the description I knew I had to read it. I found myself having a little trouble in the beginning getting into this book, as I found myself having trouble keeping track of the cast of characters but after a bit everything came together and I was into the book. I enjoyed the story and the characters. I really enjoyed the interactions between Tiffany and Officer Lawrence. I enjoyed their story and hope their story continues into the next books. Tiffany's ability to speak and understand animals gave this book an interesting twist. As the book progressed, many supernatural things started happening. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from Carol Keen. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Supernatural Suspense, you won't be disappointed. I give this book 4 STARS.

Guest Post from Carol E. Keen

Well, I know it isn’t lady like or proper to squeak or go “Eeeeeee!” with excitement, but it’s so hard not to do so. I’m past excited to be on this tour with Celebrate Lit! First I have to say, these are wonderful folks who I’m so very blessed to get to work with!

Now, today I’m doing happy dances over your being here for the kick off for my book, Evil Forebodings. It’s my second published book, and my first full-length fiction novel. This book took eight, yes that is 8, long years to complete. What on Earth could take me that long to write one book?

It started with my first event called, NanoWriteMo. In my case, it was NanoWrite-less! Who had the “brilliant” idea to have a huge writing contest smack over Thanksgiving and two major birthdays in our family? It was a disaster. It was as bad as saying a night person like myself has to function at 8:00am and be good at it. I was alone in my endeavor and didn’t get far at all.

A few years later, I went back to working on this book. This time I had a huge emotional backset from an incident that was just traumatic. I was told, in essence, that I wasn’t good enough to write for a career, and that my focus was on all the wrong things in my life. This came from a published author, who really didn’t know me. I was weighed and judged unfairly, and it was devastating. I learned a great deal though, and pretty much gave up on doing things the way I had been.

Forging ahead anyway, my first book, Beauty For Ashes, was published. Then I got to work on Evil Forebodings. This story and its characters have never left me, and I knew I had to finish this book. I’m really pleased with how it turned out, and I hope that you will enjoy it. While I believe all authors put some of themselves into their work, this book had a heavy dose of my heart infused into it in several places.

Thank you so much for joining me on this adventure, and please feel free to ask questions!

Blessings, Carol :)
