#Review: Rose Petal Graves by Olivia Wildenstein | #Giveaway @OWildWrites @YABoundToursPR

Rose Petal Graves
by Olivia Wildenstein
Genre: Paranormal/Faeries
Release Date: March 29th 2017

Founded two centuries ago by a powerful tribe of Gottwa Indians, Rowan was a quiet town, so quiet that I fled after graduation. Staying away was the plan, but Mom died suddenly.

Dad said she suffered a stroke after she dug up one of the ancient graves in our backyard, which happens to be the town cemetery. Creepy, I know. Creepier still, there was no corpse inside the old coffin, only fresh rose petals.

As we made preparations for Mom’s burial, new people began arriving in Rowan, unnervingly handsome and odd people. I begged them to leave, but they stayed, because their enemies—my ancestors—were beginning to awaken.

DISCLAIMER: I received a copy of this book as part of this blog tour.

First off, I have never read A Court of Thorns and Roses, but I've heard great things about it. I love the story of Pocahontas, it was one of my favorites growing up. Secondly, how beautiful is that cover?! And this cover from the #0.5 edition is also lovely.

This book is nothing like I have ever read before. I like how the author was inspired to bring the concepts of the Fae and Native American-like people. This is the first time I've read anything from this author. And from a first impression, I really like her writing.

There is a bit of a spooky feel. I mean, graves, hello. It's not the kind of spooky that would terrorize you, but it definitely would leave you up for a few hours in the night because you're not going to know what to do with yourself.

I was a little surprised at the author's profession choice she became an author. My sister did something similar, only she doesn't have a degree in literature. How many of you plan to read this book? If you do, please come back and share what you thought. I would love to have a book discussion with you guys. :)

About the Author
Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City, the daughter of a French father with a great sense of humor, and a Swedish mother whom she speaks to at least three times a day. She chose Brown University to complete her undergraduate studies and earned a bachelor’s in comparative literature. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for a laptop computer and a very comfortable chair. This line of work made more sense, considering her college degree.

When she’s not writing, she’s psychoanalyzing everyone she meets (Yes. Everyone), eavesdropping on conversations to gather material for her next book, baking up a storm (that she actually eats), going to the gym (because she eats), and attempting not to be late at her children’s school (like she is 4 out of 5 mornings, on good weeks).

Wildenstein lives with her husband and three children in Geneva, Switzerland, where she’s an active member of the writing community.
