The Devil's Triangle book review and interview with Toni De Palma

When 17 year old Cooper dies in an attempt to burn down his school, he finds himself in the afterlife. Lucy, the Devil's sister who has crossed party lines, decides to give Cooper another shot at heaven. The deal? Cooper returns to Earth and has to find a girl named Grace. The rest is up to him.

While Cooper figures out his mission, he's thrown into the life he's always wanted. Great parents, a spot on the Varsity football team and a real future are all within reach. But what he really wants is Grace, a feisty girl with an abusive boyfriend who can pound Cooper into pulp if he doesn't watch out.

While Lucy plays demonic-puppeteer, clues to an unknown past between Cooper and Grace start to unravel. Cooper discovers that what's keeping him and Grace apart is far more sinister than anything this bad boy could have ever imagined.


Our thoughts:
Do you believe in second chances?  The Devil's Triangle is all about second chances, finding family, friends and love.
When Conner died, he didn't mean to. He is offered a second chance at life by Lucy, Lucifer's sister with a catch. He has one month to find a girl named Grace. What's so special about her? No idea...but I guarantee you'll love the twisted plot and all of the surprises!
Toni has amazing writing skills and it shows in this book. Her creativity with the characters and situations plus her attention to detail helps to make this story stand out.
Will Conner find Grace in time? Will Lucy or Lucifer try to stop him in his quest? Will he change his ways or will he see the light? Find out when you read The Devil's Triangle!


About the author:
Who am I? Well, let's start with who I am NOT. I am Not tall. I am Not a genius. And though a lot of people have assumed I was, I was never, ever a cheerleader in high school. Actually, I was a klutz, a nerd and kind of quiet when I was in high school. I am still a klutz, a much better listener than I am a talker (though my husband would probably disagree with that) and still a nerd (and very proud of that thank you!)

I grew up in Brooklyn, New York and when I was a kid I loved to wander the streets with my best friend John. We'd disappear for the whole day, returning conveniently when it was time for dinner. During the summer, I'd dance in the spray of the johnny pump (the fire hydrant). Some summers I'd spend in Ischia, the Italian island where my dad was from. 

I have always loved to travel and wander. My most valued possession is my passport. I love to write stories that take me and my readers places and of course I love traveling places to do the research for my books (can you say write offs!). I write YA both contemporary and paranormal romance but I like to read everything and discover new and unusual books.

Any good recommendations?

Here is my interview with Toni!!

1 How did you get started writing? Was it something you always wanted to do?
Realizing I wanted to write was a gradual process for me. I dreamed about it when I was a child
reading Beverly Cleary’s books, but I never thought it was a real possibility. I finally got the
courage up when I was in my early thirties.
2 If you could only have one book to read for the rest of your life, what book would it be
and why?
There’s just no perfect answer to this one, so I’d have to say I’d bring a journal
so I could write my own.
3 Who would you pick to play your characters in the movie version of the book? 
Cooper, my main character, is very sexy. I love Jake Gyllenhaal, but he might be a little too old. Logan Lerman is adorable, the perfect combination of sweet and sexy.
4 Why did you pick YA to write instead of adult?
 So many interesting things happen at this time of a person’s life. Emotions are also very heightened and passions run full steam ahead.
5 Do you have a writing playlist?
 Not a list, but Train’s song Drive By was running through my head a lot.
6 Who designed your cover? 
My publisher, Crescent Moon Press, had an artist design it. I love it!
7 What’s next for you?
I just finished the sequel to The Devil’s Triangle. It’s titled The Devil’s Temptation and I’m really excited about it.
