My Tuesday post where I’ll ‘tease‘ you with the cover, blurb, and first paragraph of one of the advanced reader’s copies from my own TBR.
This book is a title I downloaded from NetGalley.
Today, Tuesday July 13th, 2021 I want to introduce one of the ARCs on my TBR.
This book will be published on August 11, 2021Publisher: Hera Books
ISBN: 9781912973767 – ASIN: B096THCDMH
2) The author, C.E. Rose, is a pseudonym used by the author Caroline England.
3) The setting, the Norfolk Broads, is one I like and is usually very atmospheric.
4) The protagonist discovers some long held family secrets.
From the prologue:
“Distant sound breaks through her sludge of deep sleep. A baby is crying. No, not crying but bleating and whimpering, imploring and scared. Her instinct is to help but she’s too frightened to move and she doesn’t know why.”
The first actual paragraph:
“Ali? Mum’s dead.”
That was my sister, breaking the news all the way from Canada. It was the last day of June, a raw humid day, waiting for rain. The front door was open; the telephone yelled. I toyed with the idea of ignoring the call but put down the watering can on what felt like the final peal.”
Have you ever read anything by this author?
Is this a title that you would consider adding to your TBR pile?
Why, or why not?
Let me know in the comments.
