Bear with Me by Marilyn Barr is out now.
Blue eyes, dimples, and silky brown hair; Grant Luther has all of Alison’s weaknesses. When he asks for one last chance to save their marriage, she agrees to relocate their family to isolated Strawberry, Kentucky, in pursuit of his career dreams. Grant views Alison’s sensory issues as limitations and protects her from outside threats. When he finds his new job includes changing him into a shifter in a war against the soul-sucking Sluagh, he vows to keep the changes a secret. What he doesn’t know is Alison has been hiding a magical secret of her own. One that makes her a target of the Sluagh. Will Alison emerge from Grant’s shadow to protect her family? And can Grant learn that being different can be a strength, not a weakness?
I now officially love Strawberry, Kentucky, and the author Marilyn Barr! This was my first novel by Barr, and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. The paranormal story was unlike any other I’ve read, and it was such a great read. The shifter aspect was pitch-perfect throughout the novel. I love how the main characters are married and looking for another way to reconnect, which kicks off this brilliant read. I definitely recommend checking this book out.
Marilyn Barr currently resides in the wilds of Kentucky with her husband, son, and rescue cats. When engaging with the real world, she is collecting characters, empty coffee cups, and unused homeschool curricula.
She has a diverse background containing experiences as a child prodigy turned medical school reject, biodefense microbiologist, high school science teacher, homeschool mother of a savant, and advocate for the autistic community.
