Once again I’m linking up again with Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea who hosts a post every Tuesday for people to share the first chapter / paragraph of the book they are reading, or thinking of reading soon. In really enjoy these tasters when I read them on other blogs so wanted to join in.
This week I’m reading Forgotten by Nicole Trope, an author I have only read once before but promised myself I would read again this year. Lucky me, she has a new book out in July and I managed to get a review copy. To say I’m excited is an understatement and, whilst I won’t be able to post a review for a month or so, I couldn’t wait that long to read it. Here’s what it’s about…
A moment of distraction, an unlocked car and a missing baby. How on earth could this happen?
All Malia needed was a single litre of milk and now she’s surrounded by police and Zach has disappeared.
Detective Ali Greenberg knows that this is not the best case for her, not with her history – but she of all people knows what Malia is going through and what is at stake.
Edna is worried about the new residents at the boarding house. She knows Mary would turn in her grave if she knew the kinds of people her son was letting in.
And then there is someone else. Someone whose heart is broken. Someone who feels she has been unfairly punished for her mistakes. Someone who wants what she can’t have.
And here’s how it starts…
The bowl spins across the floor, ricochets off the cabinet and shatters into pieces, showering Coco Pops over every square foot of the kitchen. Malia watches as her five year old son, Aaron, stamps his feet, crushing the cereal into dust.
What do you think – not much to go on and not much to hint of the story to come…would you keep on reading?
