Giveaway and Review with Tarah Scott's Labyrinth

I know you've seen this cover flitting around.  I confess I have chased it hoping to win it and now, not only do I have and will give you my thoughts on the book, but you have a chance to win a copy for yourselves!!  So stayed tuned after the blurb and review for a chance to score your own copy of this thrilling novel!!!


Yes, magic exists. Not the backwater voodoo witches practice where Mississippi Deputy Sheriff Margot Saulnier grew up. But the age-old black magic a woman weaves around a man that draws him under her spell. The kind Margot’s best friend used to kill her husband…and get away with it.

Margot chases her friend to Scotland, determined to prove her guilty of murder. No one will stop Margot. Not the SAS agent sent to watch her…and not the Scottish lord legend says murders his lovers when they cannot free him from the spell that has imprisoned him in Castle Morrison for three hundred years.

He’s just a legend.

And magick doesn’t exist.

My Review:

Margot was a very interesting character.  She had a wildness about her with a bit of money and beauty queen mixed in.  Margot hopped on the right path after a terrible accident claimed a life of a friend.  After he died she decided she wanted to help people and went school in order to become a cop.  Never in her wildest dreams did she imagine her cousin would fall victim to an accident and that her best friend would suspected of killing him.  But deep down in her gut she knew without a doubt that Cat was guilty.  Even though her cousin's death was ruled as an accident, Margot was convinced that Cat had a part to play in it.  How does a swimming champion drown? 

Cat had put distance between herself and the small town she grew up in.  But then Margot gets a call from Cat to visit her in the castle she now calls home.  Margot believes she finally has her chance to prove Cat's guilt and accepts her offer.  Her chief warns her not to pursue this or she will loose her job.  Margot hands in her badge and gun before she takes off.  She may have lost her career, but she can't forsake her gut feelings on her cousin death.  She believes that Cat will slip up and possibly murder again.

Margot is unprepared for what she finds in Scotland.  The dreams she has while staying there continue to grow more bizarre and feel so real.  But they are only dreams, aren't they?  As Margot continues to unravel the mystery that surrounds her former friend, she finds herself becoming more confused.  Is everything really as it seems?

This book was quite interesting and Margot was a unique heroine.  She has a wild streak that followed her from her youth, even though it was a bit more tame :)  This story was quite unique in its makeup and you will enjoy many twists and turns.  It was very when written and quite entertaining.  I can't wait for more from this author!!

And so now is your chance!!!  Enter to win a copy of Labyrinth!  Just fill out the rafflecopter!!

I've always wanted to visit Scotland esp the Highlands. Karen Marie Moning's highlander series really did me in ;) 1300s thru 1700s would do me just fine.

Lisa Cox said...

That's a tough question. Old Scotland with the highlanders or the Old West with all the cowboys. Hmmm, I can't decide.

I agree with a lot of the other commenters about old Scotland and medieval time, however, I could only do those time periods if I had a special modern bathroom setup! I wouldn't be able to handle the lack of cleanliness in those times!

I would love to go to Rome in the times of the Coliseum, Scotland or Ireland in the 1600-1700s. I love the clothing that they had though I am sure it was probably not comfortable. I would love to be in a castle with candles in one of those humongous tubs. :)
Thank you very much for the giveaway!
