Bitter Angel - 5-Star Review

Every once in a great while you read a book that haunts you after the final page.  I don't mean it leaves you thinking, or you are moved by the ending, or anything that trivial.  I am talking about a lingering feeling so much deeper that it can only be described as haunting.  For me, Bitter Angel was one of those books, and I loved every minute of it!

When Lila lives the same night twice, she knows that she is the key to saving her two best friends.  But which version was the real one?  When she wakes up to realize that she has the opportunity to live the same night for a third time, she decided to take action.  Will she be able to save herself and her friends this time around?

Bitter Angel is set in small-town Tennessee (woohoo!).  Megan Hand describes the area perfectly!  Even down to her description of the crisp outdoor air made me feel right at home.  And it is Hand's ability to perfectly describe a scene that brings the book to life.   So you feel every ounce of fear, strength, love and frustration with Lila as if you are living the experience with her. 

I have to give Bitter Angel a 5-star review, because it is more than just a book... it is an experience!

Torn between two realities.

She won’t know anything… until she wakes up.

College sophomore, Lila Spencer lived Friday night twice. She doesn’t know how or why, just that she did. As if she split in half and went in two different directions.
Out clubbing with her friends, Heather and Nilah, the girls rock it out and party hard. What begins as an innocent night will lead to a deadly fight for their lives, and Lila might be their only chance for survival.

In bed with her boyfriend, Jay, Lila is safe and warm as she drifts to sleep in the arms of the man she loves. Until she is sucked into a horrifying nightmare of her friends’ deaths.

As the sunlight warms her face on Saturday morning, the two scenarios collide. But there can be only one outcome. Will she wake up in her warm bed with Jay by her side, devastated and grieving for her friends? Or was she there to save them?

The answer is just the beginning.

About the Author

At twelve, Megan decided to write a novel. A month later, she quit. A reading junkie by nature, she started writing again in her twenties as a way to get the voices out, because who wouldn't want to create a Real Living Person out of thin air? Megan also plays the piano and sings. She teaches little kids and takes pictures of pretty butterflies. She eats way too much chocolate, is sort of a mad scientist with her blender, and spends an unhealthy amount of time LOLing on Facebook and Twitter. She lives in Ohio with her husband and very smiley son. Bitter Angel is her first published novel.
