So it’s the second day of the Kalorama Road blog tour by E. Denise Billups and I’m super thrilled to be part of it.
Some of you may have seen my review a couple months back but for those who haven’t seen it yet or would like to read it again, there’s a partial review with a link back to the full post below.
So, let’s talk about the book.
There something Allie can’t remember, hidden memories bordering consciousness that refuse to surface until one day someone, something, ignites horrifying images of a forgotten night.
A year after graduating from Emsworth University, a mysterious email appears asking Allie one single question. What happened at 1414 Kalorama Road? Allie has no memory of that night and has tried to recapture what happened when a classmate went missing at an off-campus party. Someone wants her to remember, and they’re getting closer and more insistent. Forgotten memories gradually start to surface with gruesome images and a revelation that could ruin the reputation of her esteemed alma mater, Emsworth University.
Sounds kind of spooky, huh? I admit, there were scenes in the book that gave me goosebumps.
I’m a fan of the fantastic, and anything paranormal for me is a must read, and E. Denise Billups didn’t let me down.
I made the mistake of picking up this book when I still had a couple articles to finish for the magazine. Luckily for me, I didn’t need that much sleep, and my kids are savvy enough to fend for themselves.
In short, Kalorama Road was a surprise. Although I liked the premises and the first quarter of the book well enough, I hadn’t expected it to suddenly grip me by the throat and keep me enthralled.
The suspense was… thrilling, for the lack of a better word. There was the possibility of a blooming romance, the unexpected touch of a supernatural manifestation and the mystery of a murder I just needed to see solved.
There were some spooky scenes, parts that had goosebumps breaking all over my body, and of course, the annoyance I felt every time…

I had the pleasure of connecting with the author last year when I first started blogging. Later we both became part of the Conscious Talk Magazine team. Soon we were talking through e-mails, and we got to know each other better. She’s a kind and supportive friend, and an athlete extraordinaire… I can practically feel her energy all the way here, on the other side of the world. I feel like a lazy slug compared to her. Did I say I envy her?
