Title: Dark Passing
Author: Liz Schulte
Genre: Mystery, Thriller
Rating: 3.5/5
Cover Rating: 2
Date Published: October 2012

Synopsis:
Mary Nelson’s murder shocked the small town of Jackson. The vibrant, young college student disappeared on her way home. A week later her body was found in the trunk of a burning car. No suspects. No evidence. No case. Ella Reynolds’ life had finally turned around. With a new book released, the past safely tucked away, and a burgeoning romance, she begins to live again. Then a plea from a woman whose daughter’s murder remains unsolved ignites Ella’s curiosity—and drags her back into the dark world she fought so desperately to escape. Curiosity turns to obsession as Ella inches closer to the truth—and the murderer begins to claim new victims.

My Say:
This book is actually the second book which is the first book is Dark Corner in Ella Reynolds series. If only I could the first book first. Why? I find the book actually is as good as any other good mystery stories would be. Ella in my point of view is quite a great character. She's cool and kind of Nancy Drew wannabe. But I love her character as she is. Since I love mystery and adventure, the story is kind of predictable and I love guessing the culprit. Guess what? I kind of failed to guess this time when there's unexpected twist nearly at the end of the book when I should have know it! Now, I just have to get the first book and cant wait for her next book in the series. Yes, the book is highly recommended to all mystery and thriller readers.

And I kind of lucky to get an interview with the author. Hope you'll like her as well ;p 


D: What book are you reading right now? 
LS: Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

D: Where do you do most of your writing? 
LS: In my office.

D: Do you have any quirks that come out while you are writing? 
LS: Hmmm I don't think so, I perhaps talk to myself a little more than normal.

D: What is your daily routine as a writer? 
LS: I don't have a routine. I only try to make sure that I write something every day to keep the creative juices flowing.

D: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book? 
LS: No. I am pretty happy with it. I honestly can't think of any plot points I would change in any of my books.

D: Which part of Dark Passing was the most enjoyable to write? 
LS: All the parts with Ella and Gabriel are a lot of fun to write. I also love writing the snarky bits as well.


About the Author
Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn't always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue. Liz wanted to be a veterinarian, then she wanted to be a lawyer, then she wanted to be a criminal profiler. In a valiant effort to keep from becoming Walter Mitty, Liz put pen to paper and began writing her first novel. It was at that moment she realized this is what she was meant to do. As a scribe she could be all of those things and so much more. When Liz isn’t writing or on social networks she is inflicting movie quotes and trivia on people, reading, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family. Liz is a Midwest girl through and through, though she would be perfectly happy never having to shovel her driveway again. She has a love for all things spooky, supernatural, and snarky. Her favorite authors range from Edgar Allen Poe to Joseph Heller to Jane Austen to Jim Butcher and everything in between.
