Carly Robbins Reading and Book Signing

Carly Robbins, a.k.a Robbin Monteith, will return to City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, April 1st, at 3 p.m. She will present her latest book in the Secret Series: Secrets of the Unforgiven. Robbins invites readers to come take a trip home with Katelynn. Enjoy a glass of lemonade on the porch swing while listening to the night bugs sing with her true love, Knight in Shining Armor, who just happens to be a vampire, Corbin. She has come home to see her much-loved family. Has the very essence of evil followed her home, or was it there all along? She will need to rally her entire clan of Vampires, Fairies, and Immortals... Can they, will they, be able to defeat an unimaginable evil by the name of SAVAR?
