Today I’m playing Shelley Wilson’s game: Friday Book Share. It’s fun and easy. Just take a book you’re reading and fill in the following blanks.
- First line of the book.
- Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.
- Introduce the main character using only three words.
- Delightful design (add the cover image of the book).
- Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)
- Your favorite line/scene.
This game is designed to introduce new books/authors to new readers. Make sure you use the hashtag when you share (#FridayBookShare), then search the hashtag and visit those sites and share those posts.
Today I’ve chosen to spotlight a book I just finished—The Glade by Harmony Kent.
“Mrs Wenstrop, I am arresting you for the murder of your husband.”
Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.
This gripping, edge-of-your-seat mystery/thriller will have you thinking twice about booking that idyllic cottage in the country. Nothing in this woodland paradise within the Forest of Dean is what it seems.
The Wenstrops have it all—health, wealth, and happiness. Until everything falls apart. Helen gets arrested for murder, and yet is either unable or unwilling to give a defense. During her detention, vital evidence goes missing and tensions run high.
Meanwhile, in the woods, malignant forces gather power.
Introduce the main character using only three words.
Tortured. Love-starved. Paranoid.
Delightful design (add the cover image of the book).
Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)
Your favorite line/scene. (I don’t want to print a spoiler or reveal too much, so just a little taste here and nothing more.)
The thing seemed to shimmer before her eyes, and almost dissolved into something else. But then it solidified once more, seemingly content to remain as it was, despite her having seen through its camouflage. Still it simply stood there, and watched them, unspeaking. It glared. Red eyed.
Is this a story that appeals to you? Let’s talk about it.
