Heather Peck’s new novel, Secret Places, has been on tour with Random Things Tours. Here are some review snippets:

"Secret Places is about a body in a secret place. But it is also about the secret places we keep within ourselves, those hidden areas of our psyches that either prevent us from going insane or possibly cloak the insanity that strives to escape. The book may reveal both of them, but the real joy of exploring secret places is not just the discovery but also the search. This is a book I will savor thinking about for a while." - Scintilla blog
