Avery Snow led a boring, no thrills life. After her father left the family when she was young, Avery’s mother died when she was only twelve, leaving her all alone except for her Aunt Paulina. Now, at twenty-six, Avery is very used to being lonely.
She enjoys her job at Sunrise Estates, it’s the one place where she doesn't feel left out. Her boss, Kerri, is her best friend and Lucy O’Shea, a resident at the home, is a good friend to her as well. The night Lucy dies in Avery’s arms she delivers a haunting message to Avery. She tells her that there is a man looking for her from a past life. And he will stop at nothing to have her.
Now Avery is unable sleep for more than a few hours, her dreams are keeping her awake. She is too terrified to sleep for the dreams are too vivid and too real. The only catch? She cannot remember what they are about. Until her Spirit Guide, Ianni, comes to help. Ianni shows Avery her past lives and tells her about the man who is stalking her soul. Now Avery remembers every life she has ever lived and she remembers the man she shared them with. He will not give up until she falls in love with him. The problem is Avery is in love with someone else. Ianni must help keep Avery from making the wrong choice. One her soul doesn't want. She also must keep her safe from the Dark Guides who are after Avery.
Now Avery must make choices she never has before. This once lonely girl is now surrounded by Spirit Guides, psychics, Demonic Angels and two men fighting for her love.
Do you believe in reincarnation and a love that can last lifetimes?
My Review: As I began my journey into this story I pondered the questions do I believe in reincarnation and love that can last lifetimes after searching my soul I concluded that yes I truly did believe in these things and was hoping that The Many Lives of Avery Snow would only help to cement that belief. I snuggled in for what was one of the most thought provoking story I had read in quite some time. Now before you wonder did this book mention it being a self help, no it is not it is truly a paranormal/romance but it struck a cord in me that sent my mind on it's own self questioning journey. Could one make themselves remember past lives or loves and if so would you go searching for them? Avery Snow faced some of these very same questions and was faced with horrific tragedy. Luckily for Avery she had a little help along the way. I found that in the end there were still some unanswered questions such as if you found a love that could withstand lifetimes would you choose to be with them or choose a different path and would they choose you? The Many Lives of Avery Snow left me wanting to know more about Avery and what she had to face.a Rafflecopter giveaway

Don’t miss the first book in this intriguing series The Many Lives of Avery Snow.
My Review: Sqeee! I am elated with joy the story continues and my mind is now faced with different yet similar questions from Christy Sloat's first book in The Past Lives Series. This being more of a novella I breezed through this part of the series pretty quickly. I loved learning more about Ianni and how her story impacted more lives than you might imagine. Ianni has done the unforgivable she used her light in the wrong way and now has paid the ultimate price. I yelled back at the book that's not fair she is good! Only to remember I was reading oops! Talk about being lost in thought. As I continue further into this story I think that maybe Ianni doesn't have it so bad until she herself realizes what the end holds for her. I am distraught how can this be there has to be something I missed but, no I can't believe that this is how it all will end. I beg the book to give me something more as if it were a genie in a magic lamp. Then like a lighthouse on the distant shore there it is one small glimmer of hope...

As Avery Snow settles into her life and relationships with those around her, she fights to forget her past lives. All of which she spent with Landon, who still has no recollection of who she really is. It seems better that way. Even though she still feels a draw to his soul, she chooses to ignore it.
For now everything is fine. Her boyfriend, Dallas, has opened a new restaurant. Her friends, Ianni and Kerri, are settling into their lives as well. But when news of a new Dark Guide is revealed, Avery is forced to start thinking about the life she truly leads. One that is very abnormal. One she is desperate to forget. This Dark Guide is determined to make Avery pay for the death of someone she held dear.
Now Avery’s life has gone from seemingly perfect to falling apart. What will be at stake next? Her life? Her love? And who will be there in the end to help her up off the ground?
Even the strongest love can unravel.
Will Avery be able to hold it all together, or will she just let go?
My Review: So as I begin this next extension in the series my mind is finally beginning to discover the answers to my impending questions of my belief in reincarnation and love that can outlast those lifetimes in much the sane way that Avery does. In The Unraveling of Avery Snow she must first take a journey of self discovery to find her true heart and soul. She must take a leap of faith and do the impossible Leaving everything and everyone she loves, not knowing how it all will end or what waits for her on the other side. Will life ever work the way Avery wants it to or will it end in tragedy and heartache. Does ultimate sacrifice count for anything besides paying the price with your life? There are few who hold those answers and even fewer who can tell them to you . I will not tell you what the future holds for Avery but, I can honestly say that I loved reading this series and was deeply heart broken when it all came to an end. I hope to be reading more from author Christy Sloat in the near future.
