Denise Baer – Fogged Up Fairy Tale
Denise is a German expat, who enjoys her new home but still clings to her native Chicago. She relishes in stringing words together, creating plots and flawed characters that readers love or hate. Life experiences and travels contribute to Denise’s writing, and within every story lies a little truth about herself. She writes what she knows, but at times, dips her toes into the unfamiliar. This gives her room to venture into different genres of writings.
Her stories carry the heaviness of loss along with the desire for love. Denise’s writing style and voice is strong, reflecting realism of everyday situations seen in different genres ranging from poetry to suspense, dark, psychological thriller to romance, and more.
She is the author of a poetry eBook, SIPPING A MIX OF VERSE; a dark, psychological suspense thriller, NET SWITCH; and women’s fiction / romantic comedy adventure novel, FOGGED UP FAIRY TALE. Her latest endeavor is a crime mystery novel, ARTFUL REVENGE.
In 2014, she created her own publishing imprint, BAER BOOKS PRESS, and through it, has also produced a cookbook, LA FOLIE FORTY of forty stories and recipes; a poetry anthology, SILVER LINING – POETS AGAINST VIOLENCE with all author proceeds going to Futures Without Violence; and a short story anthology, NO BOUNDS, all proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders.
As one reviewer said, ““Fogged Up Fairytale” has a unique take on the “happily ever after” romance. Brand’s sarcasm is laugh-out-loud hilarious, and the relationship between her and Easton seems refreshingly real.”
And another, “The plot is actually completely different to Before I Go To Sleep – whilst at first there are obvious similarities, it soon swerves off into its own very well deserved storyline… Overall, the book is pretty darn impressive. Both the past and current plot leave you wanting more.”
Amnesia. Sarcasm. Alcohol. Sex. Romance. Adventure.
Brand Rye’s life has come to a halt. She’s lost everything—even her memory. After spending time in the hospital, Brand returns home to a husband she doesn’t remember, and a life that has disappeared overnight.
As Brand learns about her life, she begins to realize that she isn’t the person she hopes to be… or is she?
Alcohol and loss are what brought Easton and Brand together. Once out of rehab, Easton offered Brand a place to stay for a price. With nothing left to lose but her sarcasm, Brand took him up on his offer, which began a whirlwind of adventure, sexual tension and their fairy tale of love.
Is Brand’s second chance too late? Or will she be able to cope with the secrets as they’re revealed?
