Book Blurb:
Lucy Aimes has always been practical. But try as she might, she can’t come up with a logical explanation for the recurring dreams that have always haunted her. Dark dreams. Dreams of a long-ago place filled with people she shouldn’t know…but does.
When her family moves to a New Orleans plantation, Lucy’s dreams become more intense, and her search for answers draws her reluctantly into the old city’s world of Voodoo and mysticism. There, Lucy finds Alex, a mysterious boy who behaves as if they’ve known each other forever. Lucy knows Alex is hiding something, and her rational side doesn’t want to be drawn to him. But she is.
As she tries to uncover Alex’s secrets, a killer strikes close to home, and Lucy finds herself ensnared in a century-old vendetta. With the lives of everyone she loves in danger, Lucy will have to unravel the mystery of her dreams before it all comes to a deadly finish.

Lisa's Thoughts on her cover:

I’m so excited to show everyone the cover. When my editor at Flux talked about his concept for it, I thought it was perfect for the story. Then I saw it. I love everything about it, the eerie darkness, the romantically swirls on the gates, and the plantation house is exactly right with its deep alley of oaks.
Hope you all love it as much as I do!

Lisa Maxwell is the author of Sweet Unrest   (Flux, October 2014). When she's not writing books, she teaches English at a local college. She lives near DC with her very patient husband and two not-so patient boys.

Angie's Thoughts:

Wow, this cover is amazing! And you all know, I love southern gothic. I can't wait to read SWEET UNREST by my agency sister, Lisa Maxwell. This story has all of the elements I enjoy: ghosts, haunted plantation, mysterious guy, and a killer.
Yep, I'll be all over this when it launches. And for those of you who feel the same way, well, it's available for pre-order, heh heh (yes, I broke out my creepy laugh). 
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to enter Lisa's giveaway before you leave. And my giveaway ends today, so there is still time to enter by clicking on this link.
