#CQWeek2017 Bleed Through by @AdriArrington #Giveaway #BookReview @CuriosityQuills

Welcome to the third post of today!  We hope that you enjoyed your time with us and we hope you love this cover!  Its just so simple but EPIC!! This one deals with mental illness and is a total thriller! Make sure to check out the giveaway below and check back tomorrow for another three posts! 
With his schizophrenia under control, life is looking up for twenty-five-year-old Liam Murphy. Independence looms on his horizon, and he's under the care of a psychologist who understands him. Then he witnesses a murder at the yacht club. He worries it's a hallucination and sign of regression, but soon becomes convinced that his meds have given him the paranormal ability to see past events and that the murder actually happened.

Attempting to make sense of his new talent, Liam finds an unlikely confidant in Mai Nguyen, a fellow college student and eternal optimist. Though she helps him navigate the unsettling memories threatening to engulf him, the emotional toll of learning terrible secrets he can't prove pushes Liam to the brink of lucidity.

Desperate to wrest back control of his life, Liam tosses his pills. He spirals into a relapse and captures the killer's attention as he bumbles through investigating the crime. Hunted by a possibly imaginary murderer, and haunted by self-doubt, Liam must distinguish between hallucinations and reality. If he doesn't, he risks losing either his hard-won sanity or his life.

Born to an Air Force JAG father and an artist mother, Adriana learned from an early age there are at least two sides to every story, and each deserves to be told. After a nomadic upbringing, she married a southern charmer and settled down permanently in his home state of Virginia. To satisfy her enduring wanderlust, she transports herself to the sometimes scary, sometimes beautiful, but always interesting worlds in novels. Formerly an IT consultant to the DoD, she now writes the stories banging around in her head.

I just fell so much in love with this cover and the story was even better.  This thriller is also a slight paranormal story as well.  We follow Liam as he struggles with his schizophrenia and then sees a murder.  I really liked how the author portrayed this illness and how Liam went about to see if what he saw was real or illusion.  It felt very real to me and I loved trying to figure out if what he was seeing was real or fate.  It made the story very engaging and a fast read.  

This was one edge of your seat ride that I couldn't put down. I can't wait to try another book from this author. You won't be disappointed! 

The screen door groaned and shuddered as Liam pushed against it. Warped by years of intense heat and rain, the flimsy metal frame no longer fit squarely in the doorjamb. He kicked at the bottom left corner and budged the door forward. 

            Come on, you piece of crap. Open!

     An aluminum soda can, liberated from the dark corner of his bedroom closet, cinched under his clenched fingers, and a thick textbook titled "Accounting Principles, Vol. 1" teetered between his elbow and stomach. 

     The creaking door summoned the family tomcat, RP, like a demon from hell. His claws scratched against the gray linoleum as he streaked though the living room and collided with Liam's left foot. 

"He's gonna shred you to pieces," said Joshua. He stood next to the dining room windows that looked over the backyard. Afternoon sunshine filtered through gauzy curtains but didn't reach his pockmarked face. His uniform of black jeans and leather jacket stalled the light around him. "Serves you right for leaving me." 

    Liam ignored the taunt and concentrated on not dropping his soda. After a few frenzied seconds spent trying to evade the worst of RP's nipping, he squeezed though the door and slammed it shut before the cat made his escape.
