Guest post: #Writing and loving #books by O.N. Stefan @olgaolha


Sleep then My Princess is an emotional thriller set in Arizona. While mourning the death of her husband, Senior Tissue Engineer, Stephani Robbins, is plagued by recurring visions of a child being locked up in a chicken coop. Meanwhile, someone is sending her creepy love poems, roses, and photos that have been taken without Stephani's knowledge.
As more photos appear, the police suspect that Stephani has hired someone to take these photos. She before she can convince the police to take her seriously she is kidnapped. While imprisoned she discovers why she has been having these visions and it is more chilling than she ever imagined. Can she make it out alive?

I love books. I can be found reading when I should be doing the washing up, tidying up and various other things.
Sometimes, I read books by authors that I don't usually read I wish I hadn't but this time it was well worth my while. Sleep then My Princess by O. N. Stefan was one book that was worth the effort and maybe I'll have to reconsider my thoughts on this in future.  
Sleep then my Princess is a dark thriller and follows a woman who is grieving the loss of her husband and a child in a coma. Emotionally, she's a wreck and trying to keep it together. Stephani Robbins works as a tissue engineer at the cutting edge of trials in regrowing breast tissue for transplanting into patients who have had a mastectomy.
Her 'ordinary' life is turned upside down when someone sends her a poem in the mail, leaves a rose in her car, photos in a picnic basket and in her underwear in her gym bag. As the stress of an stalker lurking in the shadows escalates, visions of a small child in a chicken coop that she’d had as a teenager return. These visions seem so real that she worries that she’s losing her mind.
Things turn from bad to worse when her niece, Dionne goes missing at the Arizona State Fair Showgrounds. Stephani is frantic and will do anything and go anywhere to find Dionne.
The stalker waits in the shadows and when Stephani is most vulnerable, he kidnaps her. I won’t offer any spoilers and tell you what happens.
I almost felt sorry for the baddie ‘Pud’ as we come to understand why he is the way he is. It’s not often the author fills us in on that part. I guess we all have some good and some bad in us but we don’t cross the line to the dark side.
This thriller had me reading into the night and I had to sleep with the light on as it scared me so much.
I guess I’ll have to read O. N. Stefan’s first thriller The Deadly Caress and see if it’s as good as this one.
