Release Blitz & Giveaway : Black Widow by Jenni Moen




  “I bet I could make you fall in love in a week.” The offer seals Scott Russell’s fate. After a bitter betrayal and an ugly divorce, the detective is forced to make a fresh start. His new position in a quiet suburb should be a walk in the park compared to his years in Chicago. However, he quickly learns that small towns come with their own issues, with citizens who are slow to forgive and even slower to forget. The town’s wealthy and reclusive author is a mystery to most. To Scott, she’s just another nameless girl on the train. With a reserved smile and shoes worth more than a month’s rent, his only concern is she might be out of his league. “I can give you seven days, but not my heart.” The acceptance is one more in a string of lies. Celeste Smythe doesn’t believe in love at first sight. Relationships take time and sometimes even that isn’t enough. Not with the secrets she harbors in her guarded heart. Yet fate keeps pushing her toward the handsome and absurdly persistent man, and resisting may be more than she can endure, no matter the risks. When the week is over, Scott may think he knows her. Celeste may know she loves him. But when the truth is revealed about the town’s most talked about citizen, he may discover he’s put more than his heart on the line. Black Widow is Book One in the Black Widow Series. Each book in the three book series will release approximately 3-4 months apart.

There are so many words I can use to describe Black Widow by Jenni Moen, but I can’t decide which one has that perfect fit. There is a WoW factor that I wasn’t expecting, and the plot twists had me stunned. 

Scott Russell is a Detective who moves to a quieter suburb, escaping a life he would rather forget. When he meets a quiet girl on the train he becomes attracted instantly.  It’s not like he’s looking for anything to happen between them, but his connection with Celeste Smythe is too strong to deny.

His Mystery Girl also harbors secrets and every move they make creates a series of strange events that has you struggling to put this book down. 

The story line surrounding Celeste and Scott is a gripping one, that leaves you stunned when it ends. You will be stalking Jenni just to find out when book two is available so that you can get more of what you have just read.

There is no predictability to this novel and I absolutely loved that! There is nothing better than starting a story only to discover the author has anticipated your every move as a reader, and counteracted what you expected, to throw in a twist, or a turn to throw you off guard. 

Fantastic read, Fantastic author.

This is a five star read for me.
