Welcome to another Bookish Friday, in which I share excerpts from books…and connect with other bloggers, who do the same.
To join in, just grab a book and share the opening lines…along with any thoughts you wish to give us; then turn to page 56 and excerpt anything on the page.
Then give us the title of the book, so others can add it to their lists!
What a great way to spend a Friday!
Today’s feature is a NetGalley ARC of a 1/20/20 book release: The Look-Alike, by Erica Spindler.
Book Beginning: (Prologue)
Tranquility Bluffs, Wisconsin – Winter – 12:06 a.m.
Sienna Scott nearly tripped over the body. With her hood up and head down against the driving snow, she couldn’t see more than a few inches in front of her feet.
It was the blood that stopped her, although she didn’t realize that’s what it was, not at first.
Friday 56: The memory crashed over her, bringing with it a cold sweat.
The click of all four doors locking. Realizing she was trapped inside. Pounding, screaming, for help…
Synopsis: Sienna Scott grew up in the dark shadow of her mother’s paranoid delusions. Now, she’s returned home to confront her past and the unsolved murder that altered the course of her life.
In her mother’s shuttered house, an old fear that has haunted Sienna for years rears its ugly head—that it was she who had been the killer’s target that night. And now, with it, a new fear—that the killer not only intended to remedy his past mistake—he’s already begun. But are these fears any different from the ones that torment her mother?
As the walls close in, the line between truth and lie, reality and delusion disintegrate. Has Sienna’s worst nightmare come true? Or will she unmask a killer and finally prove she may be her mother’s look-alike, but she’s not her clone?
I am looking forward to this one. What do you think?
