Release Tour - A Review of The New Mrs. Collins by Quanie Miller

The New Mrs. Collins - Blog Tour Banner

I have the privilege of participating in Quanie Miller’s Blog Tour this month for her new release, The New Mrs. Collins. I’ve written a review for you to read, but first I want to share a little about Quanie and her book.

QUANIE MILLER - PHOTOAuthor Bio

Quanie Miller grew up in New Iberia, Louisiana. She fell in love with reading at an early age and spent most of her time at the Iberia Parish Library discovering authors like R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike (she was often found walking back home from the library with a stack of books that went up to her chin). She holds degrees from Louisiana State University and San Jose State University. She has been the recipient of the James Phelan Literary Award, the Louis King Thore Scholarship, the BEA Student Scriptwriting Award, and the Vicki Hudson Emerging Writing Prize. She is the author of The New Mrs. Collins, a southern paranormal novel, and It Ain’t Easy Being Jazzy, a romantic comedy. She lives in South Carolina with her husband and is currently, as always, working on another novel. To find out more about Quanie and her works in progress visitquanietalkswriting.com.

It took her twenty minutes to walk back to the house on the lake, and all she could think about was finding something to chop off that bitch’s head. She would do it and God would just have to forgive her. What could she use? She looked at all the trash in front of the house that she’d hauled from the shed. The wheelbarrow. Boxes. Lumber.  The pruning saw. The blade was sharp. And over ten inches long.
She picked it up by the handle and walked into the house.

Review

I don’t step out of my normal reading genre of high fantasy too often, but sometimes something really catches my eye. Quanie Miller didn’t disappoint me with her first paranormal novel, The New Mrs. Collins. The story is about a Louisiana woman, Leena Williams, who has her fiancé stolen by Adira Collins. Adira is no ordinary woman, though. Not only is she beautiful and sophisticated, but Leena learns the hard way she also has a very dark secret.
The book has a well thought out plot with characters that you can really relate with. I was drawn in from the very start, and had a hard time pulling away. She introduces the characters early on, and you can’t help commiserating with Leena when she is, for all intents and purposes, left standing at the altar. Having psychic abilities isn’t a bad thing, but as you learn how Adira uses her abilities to get what she wants, it sends shivers up your spine. Still, it’s hard not to sympathize with Adira as you learn of her past.
The New Mrs. Collins is a great read, whether paranormal thrillers are your usual read or not. It’s a gripping story that really pulls you in, and I highly recommend it.
