Cold fog quiets the birds and shifts like hot steam above Lake Windsor to the east. Minutes earlier hailstones sliced past Annie's bedroom window and skipped off the ground like pearls on concrete, escaping in all directions.-- Carry Yourself Back to Me by Deborah Reed.
This is my second Teaser Tuesday from this book because I am savoring it. I love it. Annie is a singer-songwriter in central Florida. Her brother is in jail, charged with murder. Her ex-lover with a new, pregnant wife just showed up on her porch. Bad memories from her past are resurfacing. This is a great story!
Here is some of the buzz: The author was interviewed om tv yesterday. The book got a Publisher's Weekly review. It is this month's choice for the From Left to Write Book Club. Library Journal praised the book and called Reed "an author to watch." And there is a sweet country song tie-in by Brush Prairie.
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.
