C I N (C I N #1)
by Christina Leigh Pritchard
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance/Suspense
Release Date: August 31st 2010

Seventeen year old Lisa Brown’s life is falling apart. First, her mother and father divorce, then their house forecloses and now, her mother has decided to commit herself to a psychiatric hospital.

If that weren’t enough, she must leave sunny south Florida to attend a boarding school full of geniuses in cold, Lynn, Massachusetts. The city where the locals chant “Lynn, Lynn, city of sin; you never come out the way you went in.”

And, they aren’t kidding. Lisa must live in a tiny shack with two strange teenagers, a dog named Pig who growls when you look at him and a cat named Rat. “Mind the cat,” everyone says. What the heck is wrong with this place?

Lisa thinks she’s landed in her own house of horrors with the anti-social Alex and his facetious sister Ally. But, the real drama begins the day she is struck by lightning…

Lightning flashed behind us. “Where’s Alex?” I surveyed the darkened waters. The water was rough and almost pushed us toward the shore.

“He’s right over there.” She pointed at a lone kayak a few yards away. “Let’s get out of the water.”

Waves rocked us. Our kayak swayed sideways, jerking furiously. I set my feet firmly on the floorboards to balance myself. “Good idea.”

All of a sudden, a huge wave, three times our size, collapsed on top of us. The kayak tipped over.

I was upside down under the water. My throat stung from the salty water and it hurt to hold my breath. I struggled to free myself but my legs were caught inside the seat. I swayed back and forth, trying to lift myself forward.

I really was going to die in Lynn.

Except it wasn’t Ally who was going to kill me.

I was going to drown.

My eyes burned and I slapped the side of the boat. I needed air in my lungs. They were about to burst from the pressure. What would my mom say when she came to get me? Millie where is my precious daughter? Dead?! You only watched her for three days!

Who was I kidding? My mom wasn’t coming to get me and she wasn’t going to miss me if I drowned.

I still didn’t want to die.

I struggled to free my leg. It wouldn’t budge. I’d caught it underneath the safety bar…



This well written story kept my interest from beginning to end and the characters are all unique and jump right out of the pages. Lisa is my favorite character and little by little she realizes that things are often not as they seem. I look forward to reading the second book in this series!!
