Didi Oviatt (Review)
Didi had a makeover on her site! I didn’t recognize it at first!
“I love the grandma, she’s my favorite character. Angelina Kerner did a great job with this little gem. It’s set up very well to write several more case files! As many as she want’s really.” Didi
Thank you for a great review! I read it before physical therapy and it helped me get through the physical exercises! Haha.
Touch My Spine Book Reviews (Review)
“The characters were great in all the necessary ways and they worked well with their action roles, keeping you on the edge of your seat. When you usually read a short novel, you are in despair because of the one dimensional characters and an ending that is too quick for anyone’s tastes but Ms. Kerner pulls it off magnificently and always manages to leave me craving for more!” – Dani
Dani’s posts have always a little extra and she did a super job with this review post. You guys can meet the Don’s and some of the main characters along with her beautifully crafted review.
Loving Life Everyday (Review)
Laura did a trailer reveal and I’m so happy that she reviewed my book. I needed a pick me up and her review gave me a smile. I’m happy to know that although the cover wasn’t eye catchy to Laura that she found the book within a gem!
“The plot of this book is definitely undersold by the cover. It is a complex mystery with moments of intense tension and suspense. Interspersed are occasions of humour and a fun romantic aspect to. The book is twisty and their are definitely one or two surprise moments that I totally wasn’t expecting, which was great fun as its dull when you can guess a plot from the beginning.” – Laura
Bobo’s Book Bank (Promo)
Looks fantastic. Trisy’s blog is awesome with lots of content to go through! The header image is interesting and a little mysterious. I like the hand on the rose on the book. Powerful. Trisy has three sons, three cats, a chihuahua, and a husband. That’s one exciting household! Her goodreads challenge is 180 books this year! Wow! Good luck!
Thank you for being part of the book tour. It means a lot!

Banshee Irish Horror Blog (Review)
So, ummm there’s a really loud squeal over this review.
“I have to begin by saying that The Scented Bones is a whole heap of fun! Werewolf mafia, fairies, psychopomps and a forensic anthropologist who is much more than she seems to be.” Best Read – rating
I read the review to my sister in the car. That’s how excited I was. I’m super happy that you enjoyed the book and can’t wait to read your reviews for future installments. Book 2 will be a little darker. 😉

The Bookworm Drinketh (Review)
My Tuesday morning was a blast thanks to this review. ^_^
Nicole said, “I was not disappointed! This book is essentially “Bones” meets “Supernatural” meets “The Godfather” ! (I’m sorry, Angelina! I know you may not be pleased with the comparison judging by your writing! 😂” 4.5 stars
Haha! I don’t mind that at all! I have never seen Supernatural but people love it.
And, I have good news! I’ve planned minimum of 5 books. Book 1 is an introduction to the world that I created and it was really hard to pick what to put in. There will be a lot more of forensics in book 2 – 3 skeletons worth and that’s all that I’ll say on the matter. 😉 So, don’t worry there’s lots in the planning and I have an idea for the cover for book 2 and my cover artist, Acacia, loves it!!! I apologize, I don’t mean to tease you. lol
I love the drink! I’ll go shopping to Bevmo over the weekend to get the ingredients!
I’m pairing you up with with this dragon –
The book tour starts on Monday for The Scented Bones !!!!! *girl squeal*

Angel Svabodina is a rookie forensic anthropologist, enjoying the beginning of her new career. That joy comes crashing down when she figures out the skeleton she’s working on is not human and then it vanishes.
She throws herself fully into the case without thinking about the parties involved, a psychopomp associate, and paranormal mafia families made up of vampires and werewolves—or the consequences.
When she sees there’s no avoiding the inevitable, Angel has to suck it up and work with the werewolves to solve the case but can she trust them?
Werewolves and witches are in a centuries-old feud, but that doesn’t stop the shivers running down her spine from one wolf in particular. Rights and wrongs become blurred, as she is tormented by her past and accepting who she truly is while searching for the skeleton. What’s more, nothing comes for free, including information. To get what she needs from the werewolf don, Angel has to meet with the fae queen. Can she meet her without repercussions and solve the case?

Book Title: The Things We Learn When We’re Dead
Book Author: Charlie Laidlaw
Genre: Contemporary Fiction/ Humor
Publication Date: January 26, 2017
With elements of The Wizard of Oz, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and The Lovely Bones, The Things We Learn When We’re Dead shows how small decisions can have profound and unintended consequences, and how sometimes we can get a second chance.
On the way home from a dinner party, Lorna Love steps into the path of an oncoming car. When she wakes up she is in what appears to be a hospital – but a hospital in which her nurse looks like a young Sean Connery, she is served wine for supper, and everyone avoids her questions. It soon transpires that she is in Heaven, or on HVN. Because HVN is a lost, dysfunctional spaceship, and God the aging hippy captain. She seems to be there by accident… Or does God have a higher purpose after all?
At first Lorna can remember nothing. As her memories return – some good, some bad – she realises that she has decision to make and that maybe she needs to find a way home.
The old man was as good as his word and a tray was swiftly brought by a male nurse in white clinical overalls who looked spookily like a young James Bond. On it was a plate of grilled lamb cutlets, string beans and sautéed potatoes. There was also a warm bread roll with a knob of butter and, under a silver dome, a bowl of chocolate profiteroles with cream. In short, exactly what she would have ordered in an expensive restaurant, given the choice, and if she’d ever been able to afford to eat in one. Also on the tray was a small metal jug of white wine, which made no sense. During her coma, had it become health service policy to keep patients inebriated? And why the metal jug?
“The boss says that you’re up and about now,” he remarked, placing the tray down and making sure it was well balanced on her knees. The jug of wine and glass he placed on her bedside table. Why wasn’t there a bunch of flowers in a vase? That’s the first thing her mother would have brought. It was the first thing she always took to friends and relatives in hospital, even the ones who suffered from hay fever.
“Who was the old man? The one who was here a minute ago?” she asked, as if there might be several old men in her wing of the hospital. “Grey hair. Beard. Beads,” she added.
The nurse merely gave a small shrug. “He’ll tell you himself the next time you meet. Anyway,” he added, making for the door, and looking uncomfortable, “if there’s anything else I can do, just ask.”
“I’d like to know how long I’ve been asleep.”
“Asleep?” The nurse raised one eyebrow.
“Yes, asleep. I mean, how long have I been here?”
He didn’t reply for a few moments, hands clasped behind his back. “Not long, as far as I know.”
“And how long is not long?” she asked. “Look, if you don’t know, could I please speak to someone who does.” Lorna, running out of patience, had raised her voice. The nurse took a step backwards towards the door.
“All in good time,” he assured her and indicated the tray. “For now, you need to eat. Get your strength back.”
“Look, I really need to know how long I’ve been here. Can I see a doctor? Actually, I shouldn’t have to bloody ask that, should I? What kind of useless hospital is this?”
The nurse, perhaps unused to being shouted at, had backed himself to the door. “Anything you need, just ask. Okay?”
Lorna wanted to scream at him. “But how?” she asked instead, looking around the blank walls for a call button. “And what did he mean by not feeding the little brutes?”
“Just ask, that’s all. Your room is sound-activated so don’t worry, I’ll hear.” He touched a blank place on the wall that somehow made the pneumatic door hiss open. “But he’s right about not feeding them,” he added as the white door closed again, leaving Lorna utterly exasperated.
I was born in Paisley, central Scotland, which wasn’t my fault. That week, Eddie Calvert with Norrie Paramor and his Orchestra were Top of the Pops, with Oh, Mein Papa, as sung by a young German woman remembering her once-famous clown father. That gives a clue to my age, not my musical taste.
I was brought up in the west of Scotland and graduated from the University of Edinburgh. I still have the scroll, but it’s in Latin, so it could say anything.
I then worked briefly as a street actor, baby photographer, puppeteer and restaurant dogsbody before becoming a journalist. I started in Glasgow and ended up in London, covering news, features and politics. I interviewed motorbike ace Barry Sheene, Noel Edmonds threatened me with legal action and, because of a bureaucratic muddle, I was ordered out of Greece.
I then took a year to travel round the world, visiting 19 countries. Highlights included being threatened by a man with a gun in Dubai, being given an armed bodyguard by the PLO in Beirut (not the same person with a gun), and visiting Robert Louis Stevenson’s grave in Samoa. What I did for the rest of the year I can’t quite remember
Surprisingly, I was approached by a government agency to work in intelligence, which just shows how shoddy government recruitment was back then. However, it turned out to be very boring and I don’t like vodka martini.
Craving excitement and adventure, I ended up as a PR consultant, which is the fate of all journalists who haven’t won a Pulitzer Prize, and I’ve still to listen to Oh, Mein Papa.
I am married with two grown-up children and live in central Scotland. And that’s about it.
