I’m so honored to participate in the 2017 SerendipiTea Tour, a blog tour featuring some of 2017’s incredible debut authors, their books, and some amazing tea specially made to match! I’m also so excited to have been paired up with K.M. Robinson, author of Golden!
This book is full of unexpected twists and fun new takes on this classic tale, and did I mention there happens to be an, ahem, super swoony romance? For lovers of YA retellings, this book is simply one you cannot miss!
The stories say that Goldilocks was a naïve girl who wandered into a house one day. Those stories were wrong. She was never naïve. It was all a perfectly executed plan to get her into the Baers’ group to destroy them.
Trained by her cousin, Lowell, and handler, Shadoe, Auluria’s mission is to destroy the Baers by getting close to the youngest brother, Dov, his brother and sister-in-law and the leaders of the Baers’ group. When she realizes Dov isn’t as evil as her cousin led her to believe, she must figure out how to play both sides or her deception will cause everyone in her world to burn.
If her allegiances are discovered, either side could destroy her…if the Society doesn’t get her first.
One of the many cool things about Golden is the chapter headers! They’re stunning and include some really neat hidden images. Check out this exclusive artwork from the book’s artist and try to find some of the hidden images inside!
About the Tea
Duluria Tea and Golden
There are a few times in Golden when Auluria and Dov have these quiet moments when it’s just the two of them and things don’t seem as bad. These moments are few and far between, but these are the moments I imagine the two of them would love to sit down and have a cup of tea together and just talk, and personally I would love to join them. I’ve always been a fan of tea parties, so sitting down with my characters or some friends and just have a nice quiet time to talk and be with each other would be such a nice treat.
