Guest Post: The Deception of Devin Miller by Kelly Martin

I am so happy to have Kelly on my blog today to talk about her new book, THE DECEPTION OF DEVIN MILLER. I have to say this book looks fantastic and I can't wait to read it!

I want to thank Lindzee for having me on her blog today. I’m so excited to talk about my new book, THE DECEPTION OF DEVIN MILLER, and a few things you might not know about the book.


1)    She has amnesia. (I know. Might be an overused ‘plot device’ but, honestly, it was harder to write than I thought it would be. Love the final product though. :) )

2)    She is more attracted to Trey, the sort of candy striper, than her boyfriend, Cooper.

3)    Her dad is a powerful agent on Music Row.

4)    The media loves Devin’s scandal.

5)    Her best friend, Kalynn, has a big secret!

There is it. I hope you check it out. If you get it, let me know how you liked it. Good, bad, and ugly. I have to say, though, it’s one of my favorite books. :)

What’s Devin about? One month ago, seventeen year old Devin Miller wrecked while intoxicated— or so she’s told by the sightly ticked off blue-eyed boy when she wakes up from a coma. The only thing Devin remembers is the darkness holding her down and the voices--some happy, some upset, and one very agitated. She can't remember her name, her age, where she lives, or who in the world the blue-eyed boy is. But he knows her and against her better judgment, she offers to pay him for his memories so she can trick the ones closest to her into thinking she's fine. 

That is her first mistake.

When Devin gets home, the deception is harder than she thought. People she doesn't know keep talking to her. Trey (the blue-eyed boy) doesn't show up like he said he would. And the police want to talk to her about her involvement with the car accident. Plus she keeps seeing flashes of the wreck, but none of them make sense. What would a red plastic cup have to do with anything? And why can't she seem to trust the people she is supposed to trust the most?

Facing DUI charges for a wreck she can't recall, Devin fights to remember exactly what happened the night of the crash: something the real driver desperately wants her to forget permanently.

Who is really doing the deceiving?
