 Exclusive Excerpt

If I took one more bite, I was sure I would pop. Thanksgiving was a holiday I enjoyed very much. Turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, dressing, cranberry sauce, and more, laid before us.

There was so much food. An abundance unlike anything I’d ever seen. Apparently, the best part of Thanksgiving was the leftovers. We were getting tons sent home with us. I’d be eating well and saving money over the next week.

Brooklyn walked in with the newspaper in hand and sat at the end of the table. “It’s time to make a game plan, ladies.”

Oh, the big Black Friday was coming tonight at midnight. Shopping in the extreme from what I’d deciphered. I was going to take my chances with the masses to save over seven hundred dollars on a laptop.

Aiden ribbed me in the side, “Are you getting excited?”

“Of course, she is. Kenzie is going to be addicted to Black Friday shopping,” Brooklyn answered for me, enthusiastically. All afternoon, I’d been hearing about exploits of previous Black Friday shopping experiences. Some sounded nearly barbaric.

I nervously giggled. “I’m hoping to get the laptop.”

Still sorting through the ads, Brooklyn laid them in different piles. “Oh, we will get the laptop. Do not fear. We will be victorious.”

The deathly seriousness of her voice had me raising my eyebrows. “Your tone has me frightened.”

Brooklyn gave some sort of scary funny cackle as Pamela brought in plates of pumpkin pie. “Mom and I are going to show you the time of your life.”

I mumbled to Aiden, “Please, save me.”

“You’re on your own, sweetheart. I tried to stop you.”

Everyone laughed. Hopefully, Black Friday was docile. What had I gotten myself into?

My 5 Star Review

This is the first book of Kristin Mayer’s I have read and I am already heading to amazon to look for her other works. Sarah loses her mom unexpectedly after she turns 19. This is by far one of the worst times in her life and she feels lost. She doesn’t know what to do next. Well, not until she reads a letter her mom has left for her. The letter explains that the life as Sarah knew it while her Mom was alive was basically a lie. In order to survive she must leave behind her life in The Society that she has always known and follow the teachings her mom has set forth. The Society is a group that has very strict rules and only converses amongst themselves. Sarah must also go by her real name, Kenzie. This in itself is a shocking revelation. She had no idea her name wasn’t Sarah. What else has her mom hidden? enzie has no knowledge of the outside world so when she leaves she is in a culture shock. Can she make it on her own? Will The Society find her?   


Kristin Mayer Bio

Kristin is a wife, a proud mother, and a full-time Analyst and Import Manager. Since an early age, she has always enjoyed reading and writing. While visiting her father one weekend, he suggested that she should take up writing again. With family and a career, she didn’t give it a lot of thought, until a story entered her mind and wouldn’t leave. It just kept forming and developing over a couple of months.


At the beginning of 2013, she decided to sit down and write it all down, but she kept it to herself. One sentence developed into two, and before she knew it, she had the makings of a novel.


Kristin tries to live life to the fullest during every moment. She loves to travel and meet new people. She holds a degree in International Business and uses it daily in her job. Kristin now adds “author” on her list of jobs, and feels very blessed and thankful.
