Teaser Tuesday – November 28, 2017

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purple Booker.

It is very easy to play along:

• Grab your current read and open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
• Share the title & author, too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

 

Here are my “teaser” sentences:

 

“I’m here today to right an old wrong,” she began. Camera shutters clicked, and she blinked away the flashes that momentarily blinded her. “I’m here today to tell you what happened to me fourteen years ago, and why, for far too long, I’ve kept silent”

Here We Lie by Paula Treick DeBoard

Expected publication: January 30th 2018 by Park Row Books

 

Goodreads Description:

Megan Mazeros and Lauren Mabrey are complete opposites on paper. Megan is a girl from a modest Midwest background, and Lauren is the daughter of a senator from an esteemed New England family. But in 1999, Megan and Lauren become college roommates and, as two young women struggling to find their place on campus, they forge a strong, albeit unlikely, friendship. The two quickly become inseparable, sharing clothes, advice and their most intimate secrets.

The summer before their senior year, Megan joins Lauren and her family on their private island off the coast of Maine. The weeks go by, filled with fun and relaxation, until late one night at the end of the vacation, something unspeakable happens, searing through the framework of the girls’ friendship and tearing them apart. Many years later, in the midst of a political scandal, Megan finally comes forward about what happened that fateful night, revealing a horrible truth about Lauren’s family and threatening to expose their long-buried secrets.

In this captivating and moving novel of domestic suspense, Paula Treick DeBoard explores the power of friendship and secrets and shows how betrayal can lead to disastrous, and deadly, consequences.

My Thoughts:

I read “The Drowning Girls” by Paula Treick DeBoard a little over a year ago and really enjoyed it. I haven’t gotten very far in this book yet….. but so far so good!!

  1. Deanna, Sounds like a super read. I had not heard of this author before until I saw her writing compared to that of Joy Fielding. Would you agree? I think I will check out her back catalogue. And awesome cover… Great reading your teaser, thank you babe xx

    • Thank you, lovely!! I’ve only read her previous book “The Drowning Girls” but I really enjoyed it. I think you might really like it too. She wrote another book before that called “The Mourning Hours” which also sounds good. I think the comparison to Joy Fielding is a good one as I like them both 😀
      I hope you have some great reads going!!

      • Great Dee, thanks for reply. Hadn’t read a Joy Fielding for years, then read one the other day and I just find her style accessible and effortlessly engaging. Might see if I can get either of the books you mentioned from a second hand seller. If you think of any authors with similar style would you let me know? Would be very grateful, as finding some fab reads in the domestic drama genre with complex characters that really make you think! Big hug and love, thanks Deanna xxx

      • Absolutely. And I agree, I love that Joy Fielding‘s books always seem to pull me in and are an entertaining and easy read. She’s always been one of my go to authors. Jodi Picoult is another favourite. When I find one I like I end up trying to read everything they’ve written. I will definitely let you know if I can think of similar authors. ❤️🤗
