by Christine Amsden
Today I welcome back to BMWS, Christine Amsden. I first featured the Cassie Scot Series in July 2013 and the popular paranormal detective is back! Today's feature brings you a look at the second in the series Secrets and Lies. It's out now and you can grab your copy or find out more about the other novels by award winning Christine Amsden here.
Cassie Scot: Paranormal Detective
Cassie Scot is the ungifted daughter of powerful sorcerers, born between worlds but belonging to neither. At 21, all she wants is to find a place for herself, but earning a living as a private investigator in the shadow of her family’s reputation isn’t easy. When she is pulled into a paranormal investigation, and tempted by a powerful and handsome sorcerer, she will have to decide where she truly belongs.
Secrets and Lies
Cassie Scot, still stinging from her parents’ betrayal, wants out of the magical world. But it isn’t letting her go. Her family is falling apart and despite everything, it looks like she may be the only one who can save them.To complicate matters, Cassie owes Evan her life, making it difficult for her to deny him anything he really wants. And he wants her. Sparks fly when they team up to find two girls missing from summer camp, but long-buried secrets may ruin their hopes for happiness.

Secrets and Lies
With tears stinging my eyes I dropped the crystal back in my pocket, picked up the mallet, and swung it with all my strength at the wall. It landed with a satisfying thunk, but only managed to inflict a small dent in the heavy wood.
Trying not to feel discouraged, I repeated the exercise. Again and again I swung, throwing all my weight into the movement.
I couldn't take a full breath. My lungs burned. Tears filled my eyes so I could scarcely see.
Reaching down to pick up my shirt, I draped it over my head and swung again. Finally, I managed to beat a chunk out of the wall.
The flames licked my heels. If I got out of this alive, I would need to take a bath in Nicolas's burn ointment, but I tried not to think about that as I swung again and again.
My swings were getting weaker. I couldn't breathe. Racking coughs had claimed my body and the hole in the wall was still too small.
