Thanks to ALL my newsletter subscribers for sticking with me! More thank you gifts coming soon.
For today, please welcome my guest author of the month, Keta Diablo. She’s here to share her latest release, I SPY A DEMON.
Here’s a bit about the book…
When twins Cecily and Calder Sizemore’s parents are killed in a car accident, they’re adopted by the Frost family—Gus, Mae and their sons, Marcel and Elliott. Over the years, Cecily’s love for Marcel evolves into anything but sisterly.
Cecily always knew something was amiss in the Frost household. Little things belied the calm, peaceful ambiance Mae did her best to portray. Calder tried to warn her things were not as they appeared but she didn’t want to believe him. When Calder begs her to leave Des Moines, start a new life away from the secrets, away from the Frosts and away from Marcel, she takes his advice and her shattered heart and moves to Minnesota.
Now she’s been called home for her beloved brother’s funeral. There’s more to the story than meets the eye. Discrepancies in how her twin died lead her back to Des Moines, and back to Marcel―the boy who stole her heart, the man whose very presence turns her blood to liquid fire. Marcel has always kept dangerous secrets, but this time, Cecily is determined to uncover the truth about the Frosts… and the truth about how Calder really died.
She’ll find out what happened to her brother, even if it’s her last act in life.
Doesn’t it sound good?

Here’s a sample…
“We therefore commit Calder Sizemore’s body to the ground, earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust….”
The cloying scents of damp earth and lilies spiraled up Cecily’s nose. Overhead, a pitiless sun bore down on the mourners gathered around her brother’s casket—familiar faces she’d known forever, lived with and loved. She fought back the bile rising in her throat and prayed the minister would come to the end of the service before her knees buckled.
To her left, stood Mae Frost, her mother’s best friend and the woman who had raised her and Calder after their parents died. As if Mae could read her thoughts, the woman squeezed her hand, an unspoken sign of moral support and unconditional love. She would expect nothing less from Mae, and had received nothing less for the past twenty years. If Mae’s husband, Gus, were here, she would receive the same outpouring of love from him. In essence, Gus was in attendance, not above the ground but below. And now Calder would rest beside the man through all eternity.
“And so, shall we ever be with the Lord.”
Dear God, when will he say Amen?
While a thousand questions burned through her mind, she stared at the burgundy coffin with its hideous spray of red roses, yellow lilies and white orchids. How could she go on without Calder, the other half of her soul, her womb mate, the one person who had always been there through the highs and lows of her life? What was he doing in St. Louis when he died and who was with him at the end? She had to know what kind of an accident had taken his life.
That’s the word Mae used—accident—when she called her in Minnesota to deliver the dreadful news. ‘We’ve booked a morning flight to Des Moines,’ she’d said. ‘The ticket is in your name and waiting for you at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport, Delta Airlines ticket counter.’ Numb with shock and grief, Cecily had pressed Mae for details but the woman circumvented her question. Why should she be surprised? The entire Frost family held Masters’ Degrees when it came to dodging and ducking topics they didn’t wish to discuss. ‘We’ll be waiting for you at the airport when you arrive,” she’d said and then ended their conversation.
This time, she wouldn’t allow them to circumvent her questions. She’d find out how her brother really died, with her last breath if need be.

Hi PJ, thanks so much for hosting me and I Spy A Demon on your lovely blog. I hope if any of your faithful friends and fans read I Spy A Demon, they enjoy it as much as I liked writing it. Demon stories are always interesting, right?
You’re welcome any time, Keta. I do love reading angel/demon stories. There’s so much room to explore the complex nature of good vs. evil, especially when you can create characters who are an interesting mix of both:-)
