In Irina's Cards


Best Laid PlansSoul Mate Publishing - May 2016
Ages 18 & up

Irina Proffer leaves mundane small-town life behind when she experiences visions inspired by a strange deck of tarot cards. To get answers, she travels from her northern British Columbia home to the province’s coastal capital. She quickly discovers a world of fringe genetic science and supernatural mystery.

Working for Innoviro Industries, Irina is drawn in by a powerful first love and compelling, yet dangerous questions about the nature of the company’s business. Meeting other 'variants' brings Irina closer and closer to the dark truth about her origins. She finds herself at the heart of two overlapping love triangles as she scrambles to escape her employer's grip. Before she leaves the city, Irina realizes she has merely scratched the surface of a frightening conspiracy on a global scale.

Reviews:

"This is a highly complex, intriguing and decidedly different story, one that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. It is told from the point of view of Irina Proffer who starts having visions after purchasing a strange deck of tarot cards. 
... This is an intriguing start to a science fiction mystery thriller with a little romantic interest added to the mix. It will be interesting to see how this develops, especially after how this one ends!"
- Splashes into Books, September 2016

"I enjoyed this book a great deal. There is a good balance of adventure, discovery and her making friends, and navigating relationships.  Are all the questions that were asked, answered by the end of this book?  No. Some readers have strong opinions about whether each book should have resolution, even if they are part of a series. You probably know where you fall on this spectrum. If you like science fiction, or have dreamed of having a super power, I think you will enjoy this series."
- Lilac Reviews, August 2016
 
"I thoroughly enjoyed In Irina’s Cards ... I was sucked into the story and stayed up way too late reading it because I had to know what happened next.
Because this is the first in the series, do not expect a clear cut ending—there is a bit of a cliffhanger that leads you into book two—which I will be starting this weekend!"

- Long and Short Reviews, August 2016

"This book is kind of like Fantastic Four meets Divergent ... it is a steady compilation of suspense, drama, and a dab of romance. I can’t wait until the next one comes out. I am excited to see what it will bring as this story progresses!"

"I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series to see what happens next!"
- Rebecca Austin, June 2016

"I believe that this would be a satisfying read for lovers of this genre and look forward to reading follow up books in this series."
- Twisted Book Curmudgeon, June 2016

"This is a complex, intriguing story."
- Liza O'Connor, June 2016


"An excellent start to a new series. I would recommend this book to fans of series like Divergent, or just of scifi romance in general, and I look forward to reading the sequel."
