Amends by Carissa Andrews - Book Tour + Giveaway

Amends: A Psychic Mystery Series
Carissa Andrews
(A Diana Hawthorne Supernatural Mystery, #2)
Publication date: July 23rd 2021
Genres: Adult, Mystery, Urban Fantasy

For as psychic as she is, shit goes sideways far too often around Diana Hawthorne.

Diana now has everything she ever wanted–her memories, and the soul mate she didn’t realize she was missing. There’s just one problem… the old gods expect her to make amends for her absence. And her work starts now.

But time lost at the oracle isn’t the only thing she has to atone for. Her friend Demetri was stripped of his powers–and it was all her fault. If she could just set things right, she’d feel a whole lot better about moving forward. Unfortunately, Demetri wants nothing to do with her and knows exactly how to keep her out of his head.

To make matters worse, in the age of social media, Diana’s abilities have gone viral. People from all over the world are clambering to get on her books. One case, in particular, hits her radar and despite herself, she can’t shake it. A 14-year-old boy is wrapped up with a deadly governmental agency and he’s scared to death. And he should be–they want to weaponize his power.

Torn between what was and what is, Diana struggles to fully embrace who she’s becoming. Will she be able to help Demitri and make things right? Or will her new role mean leaving the past behind?

Calling fans of KF Breene, Shannon Mayer, and Shayne Silvers! If you like snarky-fun humor, gripping supernatural scenes, and twists that leave you spellbound — then you will LOVE Carissa Andrews’ world built especially for Diana Hawthorne.

“You’re a big girl, just get this over with,” I mutter under my breath. Without allowing myself a chance to change my mind, I rap my knuckles against the wood as hard as I can. 

I take a step back, waiting. In the past, Demetri’s powers would have alerted him to my presence, and he would have been inside the door, ready to invite me in. This time, the silence that expands between my knock grows with my anxiety. 

Taking a step toward the door, I knock again. “Demetri? It’s Diana,” I call out, hoping hearing my voice will be enough to get him to come to the door. 

I close my eyes, allowing my mind to settle and my gifts to take over. The knowing pulses through my being.

He’s inside. That much is certain. The rest is a big question mark. 

A fresh wave of anxiety blooms inside my gut and I slam the side of my hand against the door. 

“Demetri,” I say again, louder this time, “come to the goddamn door, or I swear to all that’s holy, I will make a spectacle out here. I know you’re in there.” 

I don’t exactly know what kind of spectacle, but I’m sure I’ll think of something

Luckily, I don’t have to consider the possibilities too long because the lock behind the door clicks back and opens a crack. 

“What do you want?” Demetri asks, his voice gruff and his words slightly slurred. 

“Have you been drinking?” I blurt out. 

“What’s it to you? You the alcohol police now, too?” Demetri snorts. 

My mouth snaps shut. “You know what I mean. God, Demetri, it’s barely gone noon.” 

His gray-blue eyes are watery and he blinks slowly at the comment. However, he doesn’t say a thing. 

Sighing to myself, I take a step back. “Look, Ren’s worried about you and now so am I.”

“Well, yippie,” he mutters. “I now rank ‘worry’ by the great and powerful Diana Hawthorne.”
