Crushing by Elena Dillion #booktour #bookreview

Enter the giveaway


As a pampered and adored daughter of a wealthy Southern family Rory’s life was seemingly perfect until her troubled childhood crush moves back in across the street forcing her to choose between him and the life that has been chosen for her.

As if that isn’t enough, her quiet island town has turned dangerous. A good friend has gone missing, lending truth to the rumors of a serial kidnapper. In her quest to help she becomes a target and will have to make choices about love, friendship and the inevitable sacrifice that they both require.

My review: 

I love the way this book starts. Rory begins the book as a damsel in distress. She is far from that at the end of the book. I was wary of this book at first. I was worried that it was going to be another angsty teenager love triangle book but it totally wasn’t.  Crushing is a well written mystery with a little romance on the side. There are several twists and a really cute dog thrown in. (I am a sucker for dogs) I also loved the banter and love thrown about with Rory’s twin brothers. They are overly protective and fierce about it which as you can imagine, totally cramps the 17 year old girl’s style. Great book, I am totally going to pass it off to my 13 year old. She loves mysteries.

Elena lives and writes in a suburb North of Los Angeles. She has never lived anywhere besides California which is probably a good thing since she hates being cold and is terrified to drive in the snow. She loves being a wife and a mother to her two kids and three dogs, although really the bulldog is the fourth child who has never matured beyond the toddler stage.

A self proclaimed nerd, she has been writing since she was a child. She has only recently, however, come out of the closet about this to her family and friends. They now understand better, but not completely, why she talks about characters in stories as if they are real people.
