It’s been a bit since I shared a book teaser, mostly because I’ve been immersed in classic novels but I also haven’t had the time even with relatively newer stuff. Not wanting to let this debut novel slip by unnoticed, I’m sharing a quick tease of my current read.
Ways to Hide in Winter | Sarah St. Vincent, 226 pgs.
TEASER TUESDAY is a weekly book meme hosted by The Purple Booker. Anyone can join, just open your current read to a random page and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences (no spoilers, just enticing bait to lure would-be readers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments.
The darkness was falling, turning the trees into black nerves that stood out against the sky. In truth, I thought, I had yet to find out what happened if you went south of South Mountain, or north of North Mountain. I hadn’t managed to get myself out of this place, even when I tried–even when my life had, in a very real sense, depended on it. -pg. 119
Ways to Hide in Winter was gifted to me as a free book from Melville House publishers and is gaining momentum through positive reviews since it’s release on November 6th. It’s a novel in which I knew that I was going to get lost inside from the first paragraph. Two strangers
find each other in the winter quiet of the Blue Ridge Mountains, one a fugitive from Uzbekistan hiding from his present, the other, a broken hometown resident running from her past. So far it’s proving a refreshing mystery/thriller and a quick read.
