Seemingly unbreakable friendships are wrecked in a web of deception, lies and infidelity and someone will pay the ultimate price. Nothing is as it seemed and nothing will ever be the same again.

Some skeletons are best left in the closet.

When five friends go to a psychic for a reading; the predictions make no sense at all because they just cannot envision the tragic circumstances in which everything the psychic says will come to pass.

A group of relatives and pals agree to go for a group reading with a mysterious psychic: their emotions range from eager anticipation to nervous excitement and in the case of Sasha a poo-poing and putting it all down to hocus pocus entertainment.

Yesod catches their attention with pin point accuracy about their pasts and inner conflicts; however her predictions about the future appear to some baffling and out of sync with the reality they all know. Even sceptic Sasha is thrown off kilter by Yesod’s apparent inability – or was it rather a disguised refusal – to read her.

The session strikes a chord of confusion and self doubt into Lee and Gemma; but was the reading so elliptical for Lianne. Did she read something into it the others have missed? Why does Lianne go asking pertinent questions about her past while alienating herself from the others?
Michelle is overcome with guilt: she believes she knows that her own dirty secret lies behind Lianne’s strange behaviour. Confiding in Lee, she reveals all.
But is Michelle’s hunch correct or is the truth so deeply buried in the psyche of one of the other friends that even Yesod could not perceive it.

REVIEWERS SAID

“Great entertainment.

Very distinctive and vibrant characters bring this story to life.

Good conflict drives literature and this is full of conflict, guilt, angst and fire.

Who knows what the future holds? In fact, is seeing a snippet of the future a help or hugely detrimental if misinterpreted. The psychic reading attended by Sasha, Leanne and friends sets off a chain of events which bring closure, answers and tragedy.” TOPAZ SAMMONS

“Wow, have just finished reading ‘Holly Leaves’, for the THIRD time and am about to start again. It is incredibly rare for me to read any book more than once but I just loved this. The author clearly has a great knowledge, understanding and insight of her subject, and also I might add clearly perhaps some experience of the darker side of psychic predictions and readings. The book taps into that primeval sense of ‘wondering’ and inquisitiveness that helps to form the survival instinct in us all. But is seeking knowledge of our own futures thus far unlived a wonderment too far???…… we all know what killed the cat!!! Can simply that inquiry of the spirit world redefine our destiny???
Lisa J Gordon knows the answer, to this and many other questions.
The trail of the five principal characters is mesmerising; they jump of the page and follow you through your day, you expect to bump into one around the very next corner…. such is their feeling of reality.
Don’t miss this book; its special. It will certainly make you sit and think before reading your horoscope; or visiting the little old lady with the crystal ball….
LOVED IT”  ROB STEVENS

“I discovered Lisa Gordon’s writing a year ago and I’ve been waiting for her to publish something new. Holly Leaves is a very different type of read altogether. It’s written as a play and can be enjoyed in an hour’s time, that is if you only read it once. I am an author so I always pay close attention to character development and I marveled at the way Lisa was able to bring the characters to life through dialogue; no narrative or flashbacks were needed for me to get a true grasp of what made each character tick. Holly Leaves is entertaining and unusual and deals with a subject matter that so many of us are fascinated with, but know so little about – psychic readings. Hey, give this a try, it may just be one of the best one hour readings you’ve enjoyed in some time. Bravo Lisa!”  RA Quinn

NEXT of SIN

Review

 

This is the second book of Lisa Gordon’s that I have read. “A Sealed Fate” was a
nice little book. Lisa did give the reader some tricky curves in it but this
book? “Next of Sin” just knocks the ball out of the park, so to speak. She has a
way of writing that kinda gets you in a groove , reading along, kinda ho hum and
then she gives you a bend in the road.. slips along again and then gives you a
hard right.. slips along and then dumps you right off the cliff. I love
it.
The book follows a family that seems fairly normal, Gaby, the youngest,
Meagan and their older brother Clinton. The golden boy. When Gaby was four, her
oldest sister Alison died while swimming in the ocean on a family outing which
caused their mother to commit suicide by way of alcohol and pills. The family
never really got over it even though their father remarried not too long after
her mom’s death. Gaby meanwhile, just slipped rose colored glasses over her face
and let life take her where it led which was to a summer wedding with her
boyfriend Piers. She had become a lawyer because of her father and wasn’t too
thrilled with her job and even found married life very dull and unrewarding.
After a trip to the bathroom with a bunch of her gal pals at a high school
reunion , she did something very unusual for the conservative Gabriella, she
smoked a joint . Somehow it unlocked the nightmares that had been surfacing in
her sleep for most of her life. She “saw” something that was unbelievable that
had been hidden for all these years that her four year old mind had never
accepted. Herein begins the REAL tale. The title is SO apt once you find out
what is in that four year old’s memory and then it leads you on a chase that
should keep you turning pages. Not wanting to give up more, let me just say, it
sure got a hold on me and I skipped through 600 pages in a day or so. ( even if
it IS doubled spaced! 🙂 ) I highly recommend this as a great thriller. I sure
can’t wait for the next one but Lisa?? This is going to be hard to top!
