"Are you ready to follow Captain America into the jaws of death?" "No. A little guy from Brooklyn who was too dumb not to run away from a fight. I'm following him."

 Wherein I take part in a blog tour

 HA! I knew they had a name! They are tours, not parties. 

 This tour is to celebrate the release of To Die Once - so we can still use the party cannon. (Your Evil Overlord demands there be a party cannon! And cupcakes. And pie...and cookies.)
 I read this book as part of a....why are you asking me for technical terms right now?! I spent all day on finals, I can't do that much thinking in one day. You know, one of those people who reads a book early and reviews it? Yeah, that was me. Now I get to tell you about it's release and everything!

Praise for To Die Once 

"A little mystery, a bit of intrigue, a lot of romance. To Die Once is a Christian romance with 
real characters facing deep issues. The emotional writing is truly heart-felt. This is Ms. Uyeh's 
debut novel and thankfully, this won't be the last." —K. Victoria Chase, Bestselling author of 
From Across The Divide, Virginia Justice, Raphael: volume 1, Santiago Brothers book series. 
"Miranda Uyeh has penned a novel full of heart. To Die Once is a story alternately thorny and 
tender that tackles the various forms of love - romance, friendship, and faith - in unique settings 
and situations. Often surprising, consistently intriguing, Uyeh's debut is a bold start to her 
blossoming writing career." — Amber Stokes, Author of "The Heart's Spring" Series 

"A fun inspirational romance read" — Rektok Ross, Best selling YA Romance author of 

Author’s Note 

This is a story centered on God’s healing power of grace and mercy. People like Jennifer, 
Rodrigo (and Stefano), and Chidi exist in our world today, hurting from the choices and the mistakes they’d made in the past, and seeking redemption/solace in any way possible, even from 
vices like alcohol. If you find yourself in such a position, or you know someone drowning in 
pain, please, let them know that God’s arms are wide-open to receive and heal anyone who will 
earnestly come to Him. He says in His Word in Heb. 4:16 that we can come boldly before the 
throne of grace to seek grace and mercy for when we need it. Do not lose hope that you can be 
healed and fully restored. There is no sin that God can’t forgive, and there’s no one He’ll turn 
away. Come to Him today and receive your healing

 I will be working on my review and have it on goodreads soon. Right now it is really late and I still need to do some beta reading before bed. Miranda is having a giveaway on her blog. There is a button but I am so tired right now and nothing is wanting to work for me. I can't even think of trying to figure it out. But click on her blog and go and check it out!
