BOOK TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Secret of the Sevens by Lynn Lindquist

Secret of the Sevens

Release Date: 06/2015
Flux Publishing

Summary from Goodreads:

Everyone at Singer, a boarding school for underprivileged kids, knows the urban legend of the Society of Seven. Decades ago, the original members of the secret guild for elite students murdered the school's founder and then perished in the fire they lit to hide the evidence. Or so the story goes.

Talan Michaels doesn't care about Singer's past. He's too focused on his future and the fact that he'll be homeless after he graduates in May. To take his mind off it, he accepts a mysterious invitation to join a group calling itself the Sevens. He expects pranks, parties, and perks. Instead, he finds himself neck-deep in a conspiracy involving secret passages and cryptic riddles about the school's history. Even worse, he's now tangled in web of lies someone will kill to keep hidden.

“At the end of the day, it’s Talan and his endearing combination of bravado and vulnerability, coupled with the crackling chemistry he shares with Laney, that will keep readers turning the pages. A satisfying read for secret-society fanatics and romantics alike.” – Kirkus Reviews

**I Received a copy of this book from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for a fair and honest review**

Talan is one of the popular guys. He is on the football teams, has no problems getting nearly any girl he wants, but also has a trouble maker streak.  His life as a kid made him hard and tough and he has carried that with him to Singer School.  Lane is the smart one.  She is the sweet, caring, motherly one that gets teased relentlessly by Talan.  She has been there for Talan since he arrived and continues to be there for him. What happens when they both get invited to a secret society that involves solving riddles and missions? Can they work together? Will something develop between them?

I loved, loved, loved this book!! It was a book I could not and did not put down.  The story line flowed incredibly well and was an attention grabber from the beginning of the book.  It has you guessing, re-evaluating your guesses, and guessing more.  It keeps you on the edge of your seat in anticipation for what’s to come.  This writer writes this story with great detail.  It’s easy to picture the scenes as you are reading the story and switching from scene to scene.

I can’t say enough good things about this book. I’d definitely recommend to pick up your copy today and get to reading. You won’t be disappointed!

About the Author

Lynn Lindquist lives in a suburb of Chicago with two overly-social sons and a mutt named Slugger who wisely hides under the bed most days. The hordes of teenagers that regularly frequent her house (think Panama City Beach during spring break) provide fodder for her young adult novels and growing anxiety disorder. Ever since her sons broke the Guinness Record for Largest-Rager-Thrown-While-a-Parent-Was-Out-for-the-Night, she enjoys spending her free time at home entertaining friends, cooking, reading, and writing. Thankfully, her favorite things in life are her sons, words, and kids, so she wouldn’t have it any other way.

She is represented by Katherine Boyle at Veritas Literary Agency.
