Teaser Tuesday – April 19, 2022 #NewBook #TeaserTuesday #TheBelovedGirls @HarrietEvans @GrandCentralPub

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 April 19, 2022 I want to introduce one of the ARCs on my TBR.

This novel will be published on May 10, 2022Publisher: Grand Central Publishing

ISBN: 9781538722176  –  464 pages



1)  To be honest, the blurb had me at “funny old house”.

2)  The British, West Country setting.

3)  One of the characters has a troubled, fractured mind…

4) I enjoyed a previous book by this author “A Place For Us”.

First paragraph from the prologue:

“October 1983 – I was twelve when I first went to Vanes. My mother had walked out on us the previous month, and I assume this is why we were invited.”

Actual first paragraph:

“2018 – When did it begin to fall apart? Afterward, she would look back to this point in time: the arrival back home, though she never knew precisely when the moment itself came, the tipping point, so that the weight of what she carried grew heavier and heavier, and the scales simply could not be balanced any more.”

Is this a title that you would consider adding to your TBR pile?

Have you read anything else by this author?

Why, or why not?

Let me know in the comments.

    I agree. You had me at “funny old house”
    And this is the first I’m seeing of this author so I haven’t had the pleasure of reading any of her work.. but I will absolutely be changing that.
    Thanks for sharing it!
