My review:Tandem by Tracey Bateman was not at all what I expected. After reading the back cover I wondered just how the author was going to successfully mix vampires and God. In a time when the Twilight series has made such a huge success of vampire stories this book was able to keep me on the edge of my chair the whole time. I am not a huge fan of this particular story line buy I must say her characters were very alive and the book was one of those you just did not want to put down. If you like a story line that is full of curiosity, intrigue, and mystery then this is your book. Summary: Brutal murders shock the small community of Abbey Hills, then a fire broke out at Markus Chisom's home and supposedly claimed the killers life. Then comes the arrival of Lauryn McBride, and her family auction business who must auction off the estate sale of one of Markus Chisom. This estate sale/auction gives Lauryn a break from watching her father’s decline due to Alzheimer's. In preparing for the sale Lauryn finds centuries worth of old secrets tied to Abbey Hills and the Chisom estate. She also discovers a mysterious evil that will do anything to make sure those secrets stay hidden.

I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
