“Find Me.”

These are the words written on Tessa Waye’s diary. The diary that ends up with Wick Tate. But Tessa’s just been found . . . dead.

Wick has the right computer-hacking skills for the job, but little interest in this perverse game of hide-and-seek. Until her sister Lily is the next target.

Then Griff, trailer-park boy next door and fellow hacker, shows up, intent on helping Wick. Is a happy ending possible with the threat of Wick’s deadbeat dad returning, the detective hunting him sniffing around Wick instead, and a killer taunting her at every step?

Foster child. Daughter of a felon. Loner hacker girl. Wick has a bad attitude and sarcasm to spare.

But she’s going to find this killer no matter what.

Because it just got personal.


Find Me was a thrilling, unputdownable read! I loved, loved, loved it! I guarantee this novel will leave you mind blown with all it's suspense, action, and romance. Romily Bernard is top on my lists of authors to watch.

The beginning of the book is spectacular. We meet Wick, and already start to feel attached and invested in her story, and see the beginnings of an awesome plot unfold. There are many aspects: the suicide, Tessa, Wick's dad, Wick's new family, the "Find Me" note, and more! There is no slack in the beginning, just how I like it. Never a dull moment!

Wick Tate was a great character. Normally, I have little irritations with my main characters. Sorry, I'm just like that. However, Find Me was a totally different story. Wick felt real, and very likable in her unlikable and flawed way! Her voice is perfect and I love how she could make me want to smile or bang my fists against the wall. Her love for her sister is also very admirable. Overall, she is an A+ heroine. 

Griff was another amazing character, who I can't wait to get to know better in the next book (yay!) He is intense, loyal, and has a few secrets of his own tucked up his sleeve. I wish I could have grasped at his personality a lot more in this book. The next big character, Lily, is a very sweet, vivid, optimistic, and lively character. I really felt bad for her during a lot of the book. The poor kid just wants to live safely and happily for a while! Lily Tate was a great addition to Find Me.

The plot and twists were too die for. I seriously applaud Romily Bernard. I. could. not. put. this. book. down. I fear I ignored my family for an hour finishing this book. Not only is the writing addicting, but the twists are masterful and there is the exact right amount of suspense and mystery.

Overall, you all need to read Find Me. It is calling to you "Find Me! Read Me!". Why not listen to the book's cries? Please? In all seriousness, this is an amazing book that will appeal to fans of thrillers, amazingly written heroines, and great twists. 

4/5 Stars

----Interview with Romily Bernard----

1. Can you describe your book, Find Me, in three words? 
Hackers. Stalkers. Suicide.

2. How did you get your first little piece of inspiration for Find Me? 
I had this image of a girl on her computer, hacking some account, while a cop circles her house. I had no idea why either of them were doing that so I sat down to figure out why.

3. Where is your favorite location to write?
Staff meetings. There's something about forecasting projections that makes me think about burying bodies. I try not to dwell on what that says about me as a person.

4. Do you have plans for any more books after Find Me?
 Yes! FIND ME is the first in a trilogy. REMEMBER ME will be out September 2014.

5. What is your favorite color? 
Blue! No, green! Wait...YES!

6. Are you a cat or dog person? (or neither?) 
Dog, but cats are fun too. Oh and horses! Definitely horses and not just because, if I don't mention Wonder Pony in every post, she gets mad.

7. In a game of Truth or Dare, which option do you normally pick? 
Totally dare.

8. What is something about yourself you always like to tell people?
 It's pronounced like Emily,  but with an R-O...yeah, I have no idea why my mom named me that either.

----About Romily Bernard----

I graduated from Georgia State University with a Literature degree. Since then, I’ve worked as a riding instructor, cell phone salesgirl, personal assistant, groom, exercise rider, accounting assistant, and, during a very dark time, customer service rep.
So don’t let anyone tell you a BA degree will keep you unemployed.

Thanks for reading! And good luck on the giveaway!

OH! and don't miss this:

Musings of a Blogder, a team member of The Fantastic Flying Book Club, will host a Twitter Party for FIND ME on launch day, 9/24/2013. Romily is giving away signed hardbacks of FIND ME every ten minutes. 

The Twitter Party is 7pm EST and is hosted by Nova Lee Zaiden (@novablogder).
