It's Tuesday . . . time for . . .
Today I'm featuring an upcoming read, The End of Her by Shari Lapena. It's the most recent book by the author of The Couple Next Door and several other bestsellers. The excerpts shared are from a hardcover edition borrowed from the library.
First Chapter: August 2018
Aylesford, New York
Hanna Bright puts little Teddy in his baby swing on the front porch and sits down to read her novel. It's going to get hot later, but in the morning it's nice on the porch, out of the sun. She notices two cars parked at the house across the street and a couple of doors down. The house is for sale; someone must be looking to buy it.
What do you think? Would you continue reading?
The beginning paints such an innocent scene, but given the author, my radar has been tripped and I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.
