Review of Between by Jessica Baker

If you haven't encountered Jessica Baker (or @makesmeworse12 on Twitter) then, as an Aiden's Angel, you should definitely find her. Apart from being a newly assigned Vice President of the AA Club she's also one of my favourite fans to hang out with when it comes to gushing about Aiden MacRae.
That said, we are NINE days away from the Even In Darkness release which means we are heading into full on fan girl territory. On Monday April 1st be sure to use #EvenInDarkness to tweet your reactions and spread the Scottish love. If you haven't pre-ordered your copy you can find there here (prices vary depending on location) and it's still not too late to enter to win a free copy of Even In Darkness here
I'm forgoing next Saturday's post in favour of a big party post on the Monday and then we'll be back to the usual posts that Saturday. Speaking of which, if you guys have reviews of any of the books (Even In Darkness, included starting in April) then please pass them along because I'd love to share them with everyone. 
I think that's it for housekeeping, here's a glowing review of Between to get you in the mood:

Between Review by Felicia Wetzig

Felicia (or, as she's known on twitter @Scotzig) gave me permission to repost her review of Between from May 2012. Check it out!

I was lured into reading Between by the idea of a “grim reaper with a Scottish accent.” The story begins at a tragic accident that has left our main character, Lindsey Waters, dead. As she takes in the scene of the accident she meets a blonde-haired Scot, who looked “like an angel.” The mysterious stranger introduces himself as Aiden McRae, and explains that he is no angel but a transporter who escorts the dead to heaven. Lindsey spends the next few days with Aiden traveling through his distant memories and a few of her own. She learns why he became a transporter as well as why he cannot enter heaven. Almost instantly, the two profess their love for one another.

The story was well written, and despite a few bumps flowed very well stylistically. Tefft also manages to throw some interesting and unpredictable twists in the story. The biggest left me in shock, and feeling empty just like Lindsey. Even the ending wasn’t entirely what I predicted, although I was mostly satisfied with the resolution.

Cover Reveal for Even In Darkness

You've waited.
You've hoped and prayed and dreamed of this moment.
And now it's finally here.
Are you ready?
I thought it was over, that all our troubles were behind us.

We had a fairytale castle wedding surrounded by family and friends. Aiden wore a dress kilt, looking so handsome it made my heart squeeze, and I floated on air in a white version of the ball gown he’d cast for me in Versailles. Flower girl, ring bearer, Scottish ceilidh afterward—check, check, and check. It was perfect.

We were supposed to live happily ever after.

But that was before I walked in to find another woman in his bed, a demon with blood red eyes who’d disguised herself as me in order to get what she wanted most: a child from a heaven transporter.

And it was in that moment—watching my entire world crumble to the ground—that I knew.

This was not over. Not by a long shot.

The perfect way to stay the anticipation? Get all your friends to read the first two books. Buy them here.
