Purchase your copy of Evil Forebodings

About the Book

Evil Forebodings: 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 Review: "Evil Forebodings: For Some, The Fight Has Just Begun" by Carol E. Keen is another one of those books that the reader has no idea where the story is going at first but one that you will be glad you finished.  

I have to admit at first I was thinking what is with all these books I am read lately, they all have something missing to make them books I really like from the beginning.

I think "Evil Forebodings" is a supernatural/paranormal suspense with a bit of romance.   I think part of the problem getting into the book at first is because all the characters are mixed together and it is hard to switch gears into the other characters immediately, but when the reader finally realizes what is going on, it makes a read that is thrilling and keeps the reader turning the pages just to see the outcome. So keep reading if at first you are confused! 

This story even brings the pets thoughts into the storyline and I think the author does a great job describing them.

This book deals with evil and though it is Christian, the reader knows that only because the characters mention prayer and that praying is the only way to help the two characters that are in the most danger. 

I kept thinking this book is like a Criminal Minds episode the entire time I was reading, that is a good thing to me because I really like the tv show Criminal Minds. Yes, I must warn that some readers won't like this story because characters are drugged and kidnapped and words are written in blood but I did end up liking this story and have only one complaint about the book as a whole and that is there is going to be another one and I want to continue the story now which is like every book I read and like. I want to continue the story and not have to wait. Such is the life of a reader.

The Evil continues in another book and I hope so does the romance that begins in "Evil Forebodings".

I am giving "Evil Forebodings: For Some, The Fight Has Just Begun" by Carol E. Keen four stars. 

I was given a copy by the author and Celebrate Lit for my honest review.

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 :)
