If you like stories filled with suspense, fantasy, and romance, then I highly recommend giving Jessica McCrory’s novels a read. If her name sounds familiar, it might be because she’s my brother’s wife, ergo we share the same last name. She’s an inspiring woman who’s been working tirelessly at fulfilling her dream of becoming a successful author. She also seems to have made it! Escape into a story with Jessica McCrory.

She began by releasing her first novel in late October of last year, 2016, ‘Tethered Souls’. It’s the story of two lovers who’s tragic separation spans centuries, putting a whole new spin on the term ‘long-distance relationship’. Jessica’s breakout novel is as engaging as it is entertaining and suspenseful.

The main character, Abby, unknowingly dreams of her long-lost love, Aengus. This, after dying in his arms nearly two hundred years prior. Upon traveling to Ireland, however, Abby comes face to face with the man of her dreams. Unfortunately, she’s then immediately, and tragically, forced to journey through some of her worst nightmares. If you like ‘Tethered Souls’ be sure to look out for the prequel, ‘Broken Tether’, coming October 2017.

‘The Phoenix’ was Jessica’s second novel and the first in a trilogy, ‘The Prophecy Series’. In it, she tells the tale of Anastasia Carter, who after being raised in an abusive household is whisked away to another world at the hands of a sorcerer. Transforming from victim to heroine, Anastasia must help to save the world from another sorcerer bent on ruling all worlds.  The second installment in the series, ‘The Fighter’, is set to release on July 1st, 2017, with the third, untitled novel, coming out in January of next year.

Following ‘The Phoenix’, Jessica published ‘Their Own Time: A Trio of Time Travel Romance Novelettes’. The title is pretty self-explanatory. The stories of three couples, Garrett and Carissa, Wade and Chloe, and Leon and Ashleigh, are all told in exquisite detail. Can these lovers overcome all odds to stay together and in love, or will their trials get the best of them?

She also has plans to publish another book this year, ‘The Charitable Bastard’. It’s set to release on August 17th, 2017 (my brother’s birthday, how sweet). The novel tells the story of Norah McNamar, Clayton Matthews, and private enforcer Harley Andrews.

Norah believes herself to be in love with Clayton, despite his shortcomings. She thinks he makes up for his bad habits through good deeds. In the height of a life-threatening situation, however, she finds that it is Harley who throws himself in front of an array of bullets to save Norah’s life. Can Norah escape from the torment that Clayton unsuspectingly brings into her life? Find out this August.
