“Mad Mischief” Book Review + GIVEAWAY
Today on Redhead Mom, we’re sharing about Mad Mischief, in partnership with author Susan St. John.
I don’t get a lot of time to read books, so when I do, it has to be a book I’m interested in and that keeps me interested. I definitely found myself interested and wanting to read more when I picked up Mad Mischief, written by Susan St. John. This breakout new novel is about one woman’s extraordinary safari to the edge of her own sanity and back again – a life changing travel adventure. Featuring the shimmering beauty and primal power of sub-Saharan Africa, Sarah (the story’s heroine) embarks on an elite safari with her cantankerous husband, setting the stage for a story of love, deceit, power, obsession and ultimately, escape and redemption.
The word safari means “long journey,” and the story of Mad Mischief tells of one unlike any other — a journey of the heart, mind and spirit. Sarah’s plans to save her marriage with this journey are shattered when, thrown off balance by a dangerous combination of prescription drugs, she struggles to maintain her equilibrium in the face of the chauvinistic and abusive personalities of her husband and safari guide, the unscrupulous actions of a Nairobi shopkeeper, and mysterious behavior of a world-renowned photographer who seems to appear whenever she is in need, just like a guardian angel.
Mad Mischief is the winner of the 2017 New Apple Literary Contest, in the Psychological Suspense Category; the Spirited Woman Book Award; and Santa Barbara Magazine’s Beautiful Reads Selection, for their 2018 Winter Edition. It was also chosen as a finalist for the 2018 Somerset Awards, the 2018 CIPA EVVY Book Awards, the 2018 EPIC eBook Awards, the 2018 Independent Author Network Award, for Outstanding First Novel, the 2018 Indie Excellence Awards / Chick-Lit Category, and a named a ‘Distinguished Favorite’ in the 2018 Independent Press Award.
