Tiny Glitches by Rebecca Chastain
Today, we not only have a great book for you, but the author is giving away a $25 Amazon gift card. Be sure to check it out!
Publisher’s Description: Life isn’t exactly normal for Eva Parker: the stronger Eva’s emotions, the faster nearby electrical devices die. Eva can’t have a cell phone, use a computer, or be in a car for more than a few minutes without killing it. Dealing with her electricity-killing curse makes living in modern-day Los Angeles complicated enough for Eva—and that was before she was blackmailed into hiding a stolen baby elephant and partnered with Hudson, a sexy electrical engineer Eva just met.
Dodging repeated attempts on her life made by ruthless corporations hunting the elephant is easier for Eva than quelling her growing affection for Hudson, and while protecting an elephant is hard, controlling her curse is a lot harder. However, Eva must do both, because if she lets her emotions free and falls in love with Hudson, neither of them will survive.
Enchanting and quirky, TINY GLITCHES fuses electrifying romance and high-voltage suspense in a rollicking adventure.
Possible spoilers beyond this point.
Fickle Fiona says…
What would you do if you couldn’t use any electrical devices? Well, Eva Parker knows exactly what it’s like. Due to her “curse,” her emotions drain electrical energy from anything she’s near. On top of that, she has now been blackmailed into hiding a baby elephant. Then there is Hudson, the hunk she literally just met, that gets wrapped up in all the chaos and believes the elephant is cursing the electronics around them. Now, while keeping her emotions in control, Eva must figure out what to do with the elephant, who is after her, and why on earth is Hudson sticking around through it all?!
In all honesty, the fact that there was an elephant in this book is what caught my attention. I love animals! Rebecca Chastain does a great job with the elephant scenes and giving you a picture of exactly what is going on. The relationship between Eva and Hudson is well developed, and appropriate given the tumultuous adventure they are on. The supporting characters help bring comedy and drama that rounds out the story.
Due to her curse, Eva can also see apparitions around people that express their emotions. While I really liked the fact that she drains energy from electronics nearby, and it really adds to the story and makes simple things like riding in a car a big ordeal, I don’t think that the apparitions really added much to the story. I found myself skipping through these descriptions, wanting to get on with the actual story plot. I’m also not completely sold on the cover. I feel like it doesn’t do the story justice.
Overall, I think Tiny Glitches is a light, quirky story that draws you in to the madness Eva and Hudson experience. You want them to win, to come out on top, but the twists and turns throughout the story keep you on edge.
