Teaser Tuesday – July 20, 2021 #NewBook #TeaserTuesday #bookbloggers @AtriaBooks #TheFamilyPlot @ImMeganCollins

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 Edelweiss.

Today, Tuesday July 20th, 2021 I want to introduce one of the ARCs on my TBR.

This book will be published on August 17, 2021Publisher: Atria Books (an imprint of Simon & Schuster)

ISBN: 9781982163846 – ASIN: ‎ B08LDVMHLZ – 320 pages


1) I’ve heard a lot of positive comments about this author’s work.

2) The setting evokes a frisson of suspense – a secluded island mansion… (I love novels set on islands)

3) Eccentric characters, dysfunctional families, twins…

“My parents named me Dahlia, after the Black Dahlia – that actress whose body was cleaved in half, left in grass as sharp as scalpels, a permanent smile sliced onto her face – and when I first learned her story at four years old, I assumed a knife would one day carve me up. My namesake was part of me, my future doomed by her violent death. That meant my oldest brother Charlie, who had escaped the Lindbergh baby’s fate by living past age two, would still be abducted someday. My sister, Tate, would follow in her own namesake’s footsteps, become a movie star, then become a body in a pool of blood. And my twin brother, Andy, named for Lizzie Borden’s father – I was sure his head was destined for the ax.”

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.

    I agree with Nicki, that is quite an opening paragraph. I have not read anything by this author, but have also heard good things about this author. I have it on my TBR.
