TUESDAY EXCERPTS: “ROCK PAPER SCISSORS”

Welcome to another Tuesday celebrating bookish events: First Chapter/Intros, now hosted by Socrates Book Reviews; and Teaser Tuesdays hosted by The Purple Booker.

Today’s feature is one of my new books, which I am currently reading:  Rock Paper Scissors, by Alice Feeney.

Intro:

February 2020 (Amelia)

My husband doesn’t recognize my face.

I feel him staring at me as I drive, and wonder what he sees.  Nobody else looks familiar to him either, but it is still strange to think that the man I married wouldn’t be able to pick me out in a police lineup.

Teaser:

I keep my jacket on—I’m freezing—and watch as he locks the front doors with a giant old key.  I’ve never seen it before, but I’m so tired, maybe it was there the whole time and I just didn’t notice.

Synopsis:

Things have been wrong with Mr and Mrs Wright for a long time. When Adam and Amelia win a weekend away to Scotland, it might be just what their marriage needs. Self-confessed workaholic and screenwriter Adam Wright has lived with face blindness his whole life. He can’t recognize friends or family, or even his own wife.

Every anniversary the couple exchange traditional gifts–paper, cotton, pottery, tin–and each year Adam’s wife writes him a letter that she never lets him read. Until now. They both know this weekend will make or break their marriage, but they didn’t randomly win this trip. One of them is lying, and someone doesn’t want them to live happily ever after.

Ten years of marriage. Ten years of secrets. And an anniversary they will never forget.

Would you keep reading?  I am enjoying it so far.
