Life in the Palace by Catherine Green
“We need to talk,” Tal said. Then I knew it was going to go badly. ‘We need to talk’ is the conversational equivalent of walking into your basement without turning on the light, on a dark and stormy night, when a known psychopath is on the loose. You might as well cut to the chase and slit your own throat. Chloe Diaz assumed three things: that when Tal said that she was one of The People sent from heaven to maintain the cosmic balance, it was code for ‘I’m a pamphlet distributing, incense burning, religious weirdo;’ that the gorgeous Seth Wilks would never be her soul mate and that she’d never have to choose between them. Chloe was wrong. Now the future of the world is in her hands, but what if price is too great to pay?
Praise for Life in the Palace An interesting take on the paranormal romance genre. …..While other books in the genre have unrealistic buy in to the acceptance of someone from the outside entering a "new world" Life in the Palace handled it from both the main character looking in and the dwellers of the Palace looking out at this person trying to enter their world. …….I am so happy to hear that there are more books in the series! – Yonit on Goodreads I loved this world that Catherine Green created. I happily lost myself in the life & deep love between Chloe & Seth …..I loved the attention to detail, the fleshing out of the world around them, the obvious growth of all the characters... Even the heartbreaking choices made at the end. Book two I cannot wait to read! – Ebon Darkmyth on Smashwords Loved it, great story line, fun characters and after reading it and thinking deeply about the duality of our lives, it made my prayers come alive! – Rebecca Wittenstein on Amazon.com This book introduces you to a whole host of characters that you want to meet in real life. ….The action keeps you reading, while the budding love between Seth and Chloe makes you breathless. A great read. – Cypora Cohen on Amazon.co.uk

PLEASE WELCOME CATHERINE TO BOOKHOUNDS ya
The Hungry Caterpillar. I remember putting my fingers through the holes in each page. It’s the first book I bought for my son when he was born.
2. What are you reading right now?
I’m re-reading Blood and Sand by Elizabeth Hunter. I’m waiting for The Singer, the sequel to The Scribe, to come out this week so in the meantime I’m reading my way through all her books again.
3. How does your garden grow?
Messily. We moved into a brand new house with no landscaping. Neither my husband nor I have much time to spend on gardening. We put in as much lawn as we could manage to keep trimmed and filled the rest of the space with trees and a few bushes. My seven year old son keeps any remaining space occupied with old boxes, bits of wood and other items he found on the walk home from school. The resulting effect means that I live in a big beautiful house, with a garden that looks like a bunch of gypsies are passing through.
4. What is the last thing you Googled?
The address of the local music store. I’ve been teaching myself to play piano on a borrowed electric keyboard. After six months of fairly constant practice, I proved that if we bought a piano it wouldn’t become ‘another exercise bike.’ Now I have my own piano to practice on.
5. What makes you cringe?
People who invent new words because they want to sound smart, but don’t have a good command of the English language. In one of my college classes, someone actually said ‘to mentalize.’ I had to stuff a hand in my mouth to prevent myself from explaining that he could have said ‘to think.’
