Book Description

Jamison is crushing on the new girl next door. Bad news—the neighbors are Somerleds--Amish-type cult-members killing off their own. Worse news—she’s next in line for sacrifice. Jamison will have to rise above the coward he thinks he is to get to the bottom of it all.

Something is terribly wrong with Skye. She’s experiencing emotions like the mortal teenager she’s pretending to be. When she finally asks the right questions, she finds answers that will rock the Somerled world...

...and none of her options include Jamison, the boy who has stolen the heart she was never meant to have.

The PRINT EDITION of FREAKING has just been released!

Editorial Reviews


From Sharon Page--USA Today Bestseller:
 "An amazing, gripping, delightful paranormal romance!  Exceptional writing, intense emotion, and intelligent storytelling make this romance at its best for both young adults and adults.  Somewhere Over the Freaking Rainbow is one of the most brilliant young adult novels I've read."

From the Author

Somewhere Over the Freaking Rainbow, my first Young Adult Paranormal Romance was a rush to write. The story unfolded so quickly I locked myself away in my office and had my family bring me food so I never had to step away from it for long. The entire teen romance appeared, word by word, in four weeks. After another four weeks of editing, it was ready to go.

The impetus for this thriller was similar to the story behind the creation of Beautiful Creatures. While Margaret Stohl and Cami Garcia were challenged by their teenagers to try their hands at a Twilight -ish romance, I was also challenged by my teenage sons to do the same. (Although I don't think they were expecting the book to be so much about the romance.) I felt I needed to rise to this challenge because when they were younger I'd never gotten around to writing that next Harry Potter series of which they hoped I was capable.
I am happy to say they were all pleasantly surprised by Somewhere Over the Freaking Rainbow and immediately demanded the sequel, Freaking Off the Grid. But just like everyone else, they'll have to wait until it's released.
With the recent upsurge in interest in Beautiful Creatures, due to the movie release, I hope to supply some thrills for the Beautiful Creature fans while they wait for the next movie to come out. As a huge fan of the Beautiful Creatures series, I'm just as excited as the rest.
If you've give my book a chance, thanks so much! If you're on the fence about it, I hope you'll give it a chance. I doubt even Twilight fans would be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Somewhere Over The Freaking Rainbow March 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I absolutely loved this book. The story was so unique and amazing. The characters were so real. The story brought out emotions from me from laughing to crying to being upset. I really can not wait for book 2, even though I know I must, but I hope it is not a long wait.

(on a side note, I do not see the feature to show that I purchased this through Amazon but rest assured, I did)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great writing. Kept me turning the pages April 26, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I almost didn't believe what a super coward Jamison was at the start of this book, but I kept reading. Then about half way, I was a bit disappointed when the magical element of the book was revealed (It's just not really my thing.) Still, I kept reading. I will forgive a lot of flaws in a book if it's well-written, and

L.L. Muir is proof that there are Indie authors out there who can really write.

She creates a compelling plot from page one that makes Somewhere hard to put down. Her characters are well-drawn and sympathetic. She reveals the mystery of the book slowly, but without frustrating the reader. She doesn't "overwrite;" there are no extra words or unnecessary scenes. And the flaws in the book are not huge. In other words, Somewhere is at least as good, if not better, than many books put out by traditional publishers today. I might even consider reading the next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book with a Great Title September 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was a fairly quick read from beginning to end. Lots of action and story to keep you turning the page. At times I felt the writing was rough, but nothing that distracted from understanding the story. The book had its suspense and romance, as well as the growing up. I would definitely classify this book as young adult, but had the suspense and romance and paranormal all going on.

I was very intrigued with the relationship Jamison had with his grandfather. This was probably the favorite part of the book for me. I could feel that Jamison loved his grandfather and would do anything for that man. I loved the Scottish accent as well. Quite fun to read.

This is the first book in a series and I think I forgot that when I started reading it, so when I got to the end, I was disappointed it didn't end. Not that it didn't have a good ending, it just didn't end. Typical for a first book in a series. I definitely will be watching for the second book of this series.
I would recommend this to readers who like paranormal, mystery, and suspense in their Young Adult. And even if you don't like Young Adult, there is still enough variety to keep you interested.

So well written and so persuasive is this dream-like fantastic love story that the pages turn on their own until we reach the semi-end. Semi-end because we will not know the real power of love until we buy and read the second book.
Perfect scenario easy to relate to for the 16-17 age group driving their own car to high school (mobility = independence), being drowned into endless uninteresting educational school attendance, exams, peer pressure, rituals, made bearable with the love of family, the friendship of a handful of friends and a budding romance turning into the promise of a lifetime or possible forever love relationship.
The choice of vocabulary is perfect, humor sprinkled at just the right moments (and with such a title who would have doubted humor would have a big place in this book?)
Good story, great morality, an empathic approach to dying in the person of a beloved grandfather (the perfect role model for a teenager boy). A clean love story playing with emotions like a virtuoso, Ms. L.L. Muir provided us again with a few hours of fairy tale romance and hope.

And if you are interested in dwelling into the concept behind the Sommerset, here is a book that will enlighten you:

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing story that keeps you guessing March 1, 2013
This story is an amazing coming of age story that will keep you guessing. You follow Jamison through the twists and turns of adjusting to life as a new kid in town. A rekindled kinship with grandpa, a little romance, and a little who done it and who are they thrown in. As a guy I could really relate to the Jamison character. This author does a great job developing three dimensional characters that you really sink your teeth into. You feel their pain, their happiness, their sorrow. All the while it keeps you guessing "who is the good guy? Are they the bad guys?" Romantic, thrilling, and FUN!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good April 2, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am not typically a reader of YA, but when I love an author I want to read all their stuff. That's the case here. After reading her other two books (adult, not YA), "Going Back for Romeo" and "Lord Fool to the Rescue", I had to keep reading Muir's writing. This one was really good. I like the characters and the story. The Somerled's world was unique and well created. I was a little confused at the end when I was expecting a happy ever after and I got a continuation of the story, but that's ok - I'm on board and ready to read the sequel, and anything else Muir writes.

This book was not what I expected...but in a good way. I didn't really expect to get really interested in it, but I couldn't stop reading it. I actually finished the book in not much longer than a day. And I'm writing this review at 12:07 in the morning if that tells you something.

More About the Author

L.L. Muir lives in the shadows of the Rocky Mountains and writes fiction between bowls of cereal.

If she could do anything she wanted, she'd travel and find stories that need to be told, listening to the ghosts of ill-fated lovers who need to be reunited if only in her novels. In fact, when she wandered through the halls of Château de Chenonceau one summer, she sensed... Well, perhaps you'll read about that one day.

Before writing full-time, she owned a flower shop called The Scottish Rose. She'd often answer the phone sounding like Mrs. Doubtfire...until a gentleman customer asked to speak with the Scottish woman who owned the place. A little embarrassing, that.

She's having a ball and hopes you enjoy the rides. Keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times. Scream all you want.
