Briana Lawrence – Double Hue Book Review!

I didn’t intentionally rhyme the title but turned out well I think! 🙂

Last night I curled up with Briana Lawrence’s novel Double Hue!

Genre: Urban Supernatural, Thriller, Gay & Lesbian

Description: 

When there’s red, close your eyes and try again.

“Maybe he’s right. Maybe I am the cause of this. Maybe you were normal before meeting me.”

When something tragic happens, you want nothing more than to close your eyes and make all of the pain go away. For Gable Peterson it’s a little more complicated than that. When detective Maurice Ashford shows up at his door with news that his boyfriend, Avery Blair, has been found dead, Gable is left devastated. Seeking some sort of comfort, Gable closes his eyes and imagines a world where none of this happened.

Only, when Gable wakes up, he’s surprised to see that Avery is still alive.

REVIEW:

Briana Lawrence weaves a tale of mystery and suspense into a gripping page turner.
When Gable Peterson wakes up one morning to a knock at his door, the last person he expects to see is Detective Maurice Ashford telling him his boyfriend Avery has been killed.
Gable just wants to pretend it didn’t happen, that Avery is still alive and everything is back to normal. So he closes his eyes and recalls on those memories, what he doesn’t expect when he awakes is the ability to change the past. The question Lawrence continues to ask the reader is, does he have the ability to keep Avery alive this time?
I found myself intrigued and asking the same thing. Briana Lawrence tells an intricate story where the reader needs to pay full attention to detail. A couple of times throughout the novel I found myself a bit turned around but I was able to quickly find my way back.
I was pleasantly surprised at some of the twists and turns Double Hue had in store. Briana Lawrence was able to take me on a gripping story full of danger and desire, suspense and love.

About The Author:

At the age of nine, like most kids, Briana Lawrence had a dream. She wanted to be the best “WRITTER” in the whole wide world. Her fourth grade class laughed and wondered how one hoped to become a “writer” if they couldn’t even spell the word. Back then her stories were created with crayons and construction paper. As she grew older they progressed into notebooks and colored ink pens of pink, blue, and purple. When she lost her older brother, Glenn Berry, in a car accident, she stopped writing.

Dreams, however, have a funny way of coming back.

Before she realized it she was grabbing her notebook and pens again. She would write stories that ranged from high school romance to her imagination running wild with the likes of Goku, Vegeta, and the other characters of Dragonball Z. This continued throughout college where she would always end up writing about the space exploits of the pilots of Gundam Wing and other works of fan fiction. Soon she realized that she wanted to do more than that. Her head was full of ideas, full of original characters and worlds that she wanted to share with others.

Thus, she stepped into an English Major with some Women’s Studies on the side.

She graduated Iowa State University in 2006 and moved to Minneapolis with her partner. Here, she tried to get into graduate school, but things didn’t pan out the way she wanted. She ended up working retail, her dream becoming buried by Black Fridays and other busy times of year. Once again, however, that dream returned. She went from immersing herself in geeky fan fiction to actually writing about the geeky things she loved for several anime and video game review sites. However, it was her discovery of National Novel Writing Month that made her go back to creating her own characters and plots.

Now, here she is, an author in the writing world.
