Unwanted Blog Tour! (Unwanted by Jennifer Estep)

I am SOOOO excited today!  I'm hosting my first ever blog tour stop, and it's for Jennifer Estep!  For those of you who aren't familiar with her work - why ever not?!  I haven't yet found a book she's written that I didn't like.  Her Bigtime series for adults is on my TBR pile.  My daughter has devoured her Mythos Academy series and Black Blade series (which I also got to read part of), and my all-time favorite is her Elemental Assassin series - I MAKE time to read anything Gin!  So let's get started!

The New York Times bestselling Elemental Assassin series continues with a new e-novella--from the point of view of Finnegan Lane, the foster brother of Gin Blanco, and a fan favorite of readers of the series.

The fallout from his disastrous “family reunion” in Bitter Bite has left Finn feeling hurt, angry, and depressed. He can barely stand to look at himself in the mirror, much less eat any of the delicious barbecue from Gin’s famed Pork Pit restaurant.

But when the funeral for a slain security guard at his bank turns into a showdown with some nasty underworld giants, Finn knows that he must act in order to protect an innocent family.

Finnegan Lane might be the most unwanted man in Ashland these days, but he’s determined to try to make amends for his past mistakes

Long-time (and new) fans of Gin - have you ever wondered what Finn was TRULY thinking?  Here's your chance to find out!

After the (deserved) death of his mother, Finn is having trouble with self-recriminations and guilt.  He is unwanted.  His co-workers have all made it plain that they blame him for his mother's crimes and the death of so many of his co-workers.  His boss has insisted he attend every single funeral - not that he wouldn't have on his own.  New security measures are now in place at the bank - for obvious reasons - and, in general, he is having trouble moving on. 

Enter a grieving widow with a young son, and a big-time issue due to her brother-in-law.  Finn learns of her trouble and offers to help, but - like the rest of the people his work-related life - she blames him for her husband's death and refuses it.  He doesn't care, and does his planning anyway.  Finn's not an elemental, but he was raised by his father - an assassin - and has helped Gin out enough times to know what and how to plan.

You'll have to read the novella to find out the rest!  And, I suggest you do that now!

While short, (It IS a novella folks!) Unwanted packs an emotional punch like any of this series.  There is always a twist that it is hard to see coming.  Jennifer's attention to detail and imagination are a true pleasure to read no matter the length of the work.
