Owlet Summary





Somewhere between falling and flying… there is a girl.

Iris has a secret. She lost her memory eight years ago and never told a living soul. After an asthma attack one night she finds out that her dreams of a strange house on a snowy island may be a memory resurfacing but the more she learns about the past the more she realizes the life she has been living is a lie. As the façade her father has built starts to crumble around her she will have to decide which means more to her; the truth or her life.
 

Read-Along Excerpt

Iris felt her eyes go wide and her heart began to flutter. For a moment she just held on to her inhaler wondering if she was having a heart attack or if her asthma was somehow magically doing this odd thing to her heart. She looked around at the trees and Joseph called out to the dog that went running back to his side.

“Ungrateful brutish dog! You know not to tackle her,” he said to the retriever as it happily wagged its tail and responded with a soft bark, making Joseph laugh.

“Go on and find a place. Show her the island while you are at it.” Joseph told Falcon who looked at Iris and smiled. “Get her back to the house safely when you are done. I will stop by there and see how the garden is tending.”

“Joseph…” Iris said hesitantly, biting her lip. “When you are there would you mind telling Diana that I am all right, but not mention where I am or who I am with? I don’t want to talk to her right now.”

“Sure thing. You keep that young man in check now, y’hear?” he said, giving her a wide smile. Falcon seemed to be moving ahead but he hadn’t moved fast enough for Iris not to see him blush.

“Thank you,” Iris said and then turned to follow Falcon. She wanted to be afraid of him, of everything. But the voice inside of her was pushing her forward and comforting her all at once, making her feel at ease and safe.

He helps. Follow him and remember yourself. Calm down so that we can go back to the house with an open mind and heart. You are safe here.

Lynn Thompson’s home is in the Land of Enchantment, and, yes, the land is enchanting. The skies are blue, the stars are bright., and there are beautiful panoramic landscapes surrounding her hometown. Lynn wades through the craziness of life to follow her true passion, writing fiction. You can find her, or not, trekking through the mountains, searching for fairies and vortexes, keeping her eye out for anything paranormal, or sitting in the hot springs in her spare time. Lynn doesn’t have a specific genre she writes in. Characters have a way of leading her stories. She follows. Lynn is also a sponge when it comes to knowledge. She’s always on the move to continue her education in writing, marketing, social media, digital media, and hopes to find the extra time to add some criminal investigation classes to her repertoire. Lynn has three novels out: Blake, Sterling, and Tarnished Gold. Blake is the beginning of Montana’s story. Her need for seclusion, at least, for one winter. She does not get what she wants. There is someone or something in the mountains stalking her, people keep showing up on her doorstep, and she meets Max. Max knows what is hunting Montana, but won’t tell her. Montana’s lack of trust in Max drives her to fix her own problems. If she had known what she’d be confronting that night, she never would have sedated Max. Sterling is the second novel in the Montana Dayton series. Montana moves to Florida hoping to escape her old life, and regain her normal life back, but her past has come back to haunt her. Not only does she start losing time, she continues to wake up every morning wearing gorgeous jewels and is surrounded by precious gems. She never remembers where, or who she’s getting the glittery baubles from and is hell bent to get back her memories and return the jewels. Afraid she has been out robbing houses in the middle of the night, she is determined to figure out what is happening on her own. That is until the dreams and the strong pull to explore the gulf. When she finally realizes she needs help, she is powerless to get it. Tarnished Gold is Sam’s story and will be coming out around the new year. Sam first appeared in Sterling and demanded her own novel. Lynn has bowed to Sam’s wishes and is writing that story now. Lynn is also the proud owner of: Dark Fates. Eight short stories that are fun, but still on the dark side. Dark Fates-Madness. Four dark short stories. News Worthy. News Worthy stands alone with five short stories. Watching the news first thing in the morning may not be fun, but dissecting news clips and re-writing them into short stories that had a different ending was a blast! Dark Fates Collections is compiled of Dark Fates, Dark Fates-Madness, News Worthy, and features Karma Shay’s adventures.
