Fall is my absolute favourite time of year; not only do I feel more content surrounded by the bright colours and cooler weather but fall marks the time where the most anticipated releases from my wishlist are published. Enter Best Day Ever, the newest release by Kaira Rouda (which is out TODAY!) and a book that was topping my TBR pile.
I was lucky enough to be able to chat with the author, Kaira Rouda about Best Day Ever, her thoughts on book reviews and how she spends her time when she isn’t creating her novels.
Keep reading to see what Karia said during our chat! And, stay tuned for our CJSreviews of Best Day Ever, which we made one of our September picks!

Earlier this summer, I read The Party a novel written by Canadian author, Robyn Harding. I was completely blown away by this novel (if you missed it, my review is here). From the eloquent story telling to the intricate prose, I found this read completely unputdownable; it was not the traditional thriller that I am often drawn to but I found it completely unputdownable and quickly gave it a 5-star review!
Today, I am so excited to have Robyn Harding on Clues and Reviews answering my questions about the book, the writing process, and some serious Canadian business….oh, and there may or may not be a giveaway opportunity!!

Earlier this month, I read The Good Widow (you can check out my full review here) and I loved it. The Good Widow was the perfect novel for a summer at the beach or to binge read in your PJs (with a glass of wine, of course!). From the first pages, I was completely hooked.
Obviously, I knew I had to have this writing duo on Clues and Reviews! So, without further ado, let’s see what Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke had to say when I asked them about their novel, their upcoming work and who would die first in a Zombie Apocalypse. Just some run of the mill questions.

Happy publication day to The White Road! I am thrilled to welcome Sarah Lotz to Clues and Reviews to discuss her novel, The White Road, the writing process and life in general.
I read this book and absolutely LOVED IT! It has been several weeks since I finished it and I am still talking to everyone about it. It is one of those books that sticks with you. If you missed my review of this one, you can check it out here!
Before we hear from Sarah, here is the synopsis for The White Road
Desperate to attract subscribers to his fledgling website, ‘Journey to the Dark Side’, ex-adrenalin junkie and slacker Simon Newman hires someone to guide him through the notorious Cwm Pot caves, so that he can film the journey and put it on the internet. With a tragic history, Cwm Pot has been off-limits for decades, and unfortunately for Simon, the guide he’s hired is as unpredictable and dangerous as the watery caverns that lurk beneath the earth. After a brutal struggle for survival, Simon barely escapes with his life, but predictably, the gruesome footage he managed to collect down in the earth’s bowels goes viral. Ignoring the warning signs of mental trauma, and eager to capitalize on his new internet fame, Simon latches onto another escapade that has that magic click-bait mix of danger and death – a trip to Everest. But up above 8000 feet, in the infamous Death Zone, he’ll need more than his dubious morals and wits to guide him, especially when he uncovers the truth behind a decade-old tragedy – a truth that means he might not be coming back alive. A truth that will change him – and anyone who views the footage he captures – forever.
Sounds pretty intense right?
Keep reading to see what Sarah Lotz had to say about the idea of the “third man factor”, her adrenline seeking experiences and how she deals with book reviews.
