Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, the weekly Meme that is hosted by The Purple Booker. It is very easy to play along:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Here are my “teaser” sentences:
Everyone treats me as if I’m fragile these days, maybe there’s a reason for that, maybe I am fragile; if I’m so uncertain about these things that I could be shaken by the potential of a single discouraging sentence from a woman I barely know.
Pathetic. Pathetic enough to stay, even when I knew I had to go. And look where that got me? Something has to change. Something has to change.
And the book is……
A Mother’s Confession
by Kelly Rimmer
‘He’s dead and I’m safe, but I’m still scared. Sometimes I actually miss him, but then in the very next breath I find that I hate him so much that I hope there is a hell, just so that he can be suffering like he left me here to suffer.’
Olivia and David were the perfect couple with their whole lives in front of them. When beautiful baby daughter Zoe came along, their world seemed complete.
But now David is dead and Olivia’s world is in pieces. While she is consumed with grief, her mother-in-law Ivy is also mourning the loss of her son. Both women are hiding secrets about the man they loved. Secrets that have put the family in danger.
Something was very wrong in Olivia and David’s marriage. Can Olivia and Ivy break their silence and speak the truth? A mother should protect her child, whatever the cost…shouldn’t she?
From the bestselling author of The Secret Daughter and Me Without You comes another emotionally gripping and gut-wrenching read about love, loss and the strength of a mother’s love.
This is my first read from Kelly Rimmer. Dark, chilling, moving, emotional, and heartbreaking are some of the words I’ve seen describing this novel. And although I haven’t read very much of it yet….
So far, I agree.
I can’t wait to read more!!
Do you have this on your TBR? And for those of you that have read this novel, what did you think? I’d love to hear your comments!
