***Blog Tour Stop and Giveaway*** Scare Crow (A Crow's Row Love Story) by Julie Hockley

Nineteen-year-old Emily Sheppard is losing her sanity. 

Ever since her mob king boyfriend, Cameron Hillard, abandoned her for her own good, Emmy has been attempting to move on with her charmed college student life as if nothing happened. Now rejected from the underworld and left grieving over Cameron’s alleged death.

Emmy realizes she belongs nowhere. Worse yet, she is now keeping a dangerous secret.

After just a short time with Emily, Cameron has lost control over his world. As he miserably attempts to return to what is left of his life and unravel the mess he has made of the underworld, Emily’s hate turns to desperation. She needs to kill the kingpins responsible for Cameron’s death before they come looking for her. As Cameron secretly observes Emily, he has no idea of the danger he has placed her in—or that it may already be too late for him to save her.

Scare Crow is a tale of revenge, terror, and love as Emmy and Cameron embark on separate journeys to face enemies, correct past mistakes, and find their way to their destinies.

Jenn's Review

If you’re like me, you were anticipating the release of Scare Crow. I read Crow’s Row in late 2012 and the ending ate at me for days! Then I see on Facebook that Julie is working on book 2 and I KNEW that I wanted it ASAP. You did that too, right?

And, you remember how Crow’s Row ended? Since it had been a while that I’d read it, I went back and read it again before I started Scare Crow. Again, I was left reeling! Luckily, there was no wait time and I was able to see exactly what was going through everyone’s minds. I have to tell you, I REALLY felt for Emmy. More alone than she’s ever been and she finds herself in worse circumstances than before she met Cameron.  We find out that he did what he did to protect her. That may have been so but, I still want to call BS.

Emmy’s luck, if you want to call it that, was getting worse by the day. Her only saving grace was Griff.  There were some days that I wanted her to throw in the towel and give herself to Griff. Every decision he made always had her in mind. He became her bodyguard and her friend. But, she kept a lot from him and I know he had a hard time believing that Cameron had actually loved her.

There is so much that happens in this book. We get dual POVs this time! Unfortunately, I really didn’t care to be in Cameron’s head. There were times when I felt like we could’ve gone without. However, I soaked up every moment with Emmy. She showed a side of her that I didn’t know she had. She was ruthless at times, on her road to revenge. And extremely strong. I believe it was her POV that made the story.

The last several chapters made the entire book, in my opinion.  And, the truth comes out at this point. You may have seen by now that book 3 will be released. I have not seen an anticipated release date yet but hopefully it won’t be too long! 

A former germaphobe and clean-freak turned mother of two, Julie collects enough tears and snot in a month to recreate Slimer Monster from Ghostbusters. Other than playing devoted wife and mama, Julie is the funniest person in the room (according to the 3 year-old and 2 year-old in said room) and can build the most awesome Lego rocket ship you’ve ever set your eyes on (according to her). Oh, and she has a full time career and has also written a bestselling novel. Superhero, or just downright insane?
