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 March 22, 2022 I want to introduce one of the ARCs on my TBR.
This novel will be published on April 12, 2022Publisher: MIRA/Harlequin Books
ISBN: 9780778386315 – ASIN: B097HKKXZX – 320 pages
2) References to an isolated house and ‘strange’ events.
3) The blurb hints at an interesting and dysfunctional family dynamic.
4) I’ve read many positive reviews of this one from my fellow bookbloggers.
First paragraph from the prologue:
“The woods at night were far from silent. Nightjars and owls called their strange solos, and my boots crunched on the stones littered across the track. All around was the sound of water: noisy little brooks and streams made their ceaseless descent to the river, bubbling, chattering, murmuring. The rain had stopped, and the moon peered out from behind her misty veil. I pulled my cloak more tightly at the neck, closing my shawl around my face.”
Actual first paragraph:
I took Georgina the usual way home, east through Kensington Gardens toward Hyde Park. She had fallen asleep with a fistful of daisies, and I pushed the pram along the bridleway, nodding at the other nurses. Her shoes nudged the end of the cushioned carriage; she would soon outgrow it, and I felt a distant stab of mourning for the baby she had been. She could sit up herself now, which she did on fine days with the hood folded down; she loved to see the Household Cavalry with their piped uniforms and plumed hats, and ladies would put down their parasols to admire her.”
Is this a title that you would consider adding to your TBR pile?
Why, or why not?
Let me know in the comments.
