Today I am hosting the lovely and talented Amy Fellner Dominy for the YA Scavenger Hunt!


I’m a big fan of Amy’s, so I’m thrilled to tell you more about her and her latest, wonderful book (which I LOVED), The Fall of Grace!

Now, more about Amy:  Amy is the award-winning author of novels for teens and tweens.  Amy writes stories that will make you laugh, sigh, swoon…and if she breaks your heart just a little, she’ll patch it up by the end!

Find out more information by checking out the author website here!


When Grace’s mother is accused of running a financial scam, a search for answers leads Grace to the mountains of Colorado.  She’s followed by Sam who thinks she knows where $45 million dollars are hidden.  To survive the mountains, they must learn to trust each other.  But what answers wait for them at the top?  Can the connection growing between them survive the truth?  Can they?

This book is SOOOO good!  You will love it!!!


From the wonderful Amy Fellner Dominy:

In the same way that music captures an emotion, a mood, a theme…quotes do that for me. I’ve got notecards with quotes on the walls in my office, on my computer desk, and even by my bed. Some quotes are more traditional sayings, some I pull from music lyrics or books and movies. All of them inspire me in my life, and they inspire me as an author.

For each book I write, I pull quotes that relate to my characters and the situations they face. You can find boards for each of my novels (with quotes) on Pinterest:   Check them out and if you have favorite quotes that you think fit, let me know so I can add them!

The Fall of Grace, on the surface, is an adventure-survival story, a road-trip-romance with mystery and suspense. But at the heart of the book is a story of trust, betrayal, love and forgiveness.  Here are a few of the quotes that I pinned as I wrote this novel. They were quotes that spoke to the experience of the two main characters, Grace and Sam.  I hope you’ve never experienced betrayal, but if you have, they might speak to you, too.

Along with stealing amazing quotes from other people, I also like to come up with my own.  Occasionally there’s a line from the book, spoken by a character, which begins to feel like a tagline for the story.  This is one that stuck for The Fall of Grace.
