Three years ago, Cohen Brandwein was "Ireland's Favorite Daughter", a popular teenage author and internet celebrity. But ever since he came out publicly as trans, the media's treatment of him has been less than golden, and these days, Cohen is desperate for escape. When he inherits an old house in the country, Cohen sees it as a perfect opportunity to escape the press and work on his new book. What he doesn't count on is becoming embroiled in a small town murder mystery and falling for the primary suspect, a man whose reality makes Cohen's fantasy books seem like child's play...
I loved this story. I tore through it in one day, hardly able to put it down. Pendragon's fluid style and interesting characters kept me flipping pages. The plot itself is fun, spooky, and the final words of the story brought it all together in a perfect package.

Runners Up:
2.    Everybody Knows by Giselle Renarde   
3.    Groom Of Convenience (Scandalous Whispers Of The Remmington Realm) by Vicktor Alexander
