Teaser Tuesday: January 6th (Happy New Year!)

Happy 2015!!  I’ve missed my poor, neglected blog,  I’m going to TRY and be better this year…but I’ve been MIA for good reason.  This past month has brought 2 birthdays (I have a 3 & 5-year-old now!!!), Christmas, New Years, and entertaining lots of family and friends.  Some day I’ll catch up, but I’m not going to beat myself up over it!


Ofcourse I have been reading.  I have plans for a post to recap 2014, I don’t think I ended as strong as I started, but I think I’m up in the mid-50’s – not too shabby!

This week I started a NetGalley read, Crash & Burn by Lisa Gardner releasing 2/3/15.  If I weren’t so tired at night – I would easily stay up all night to finish – but I’m about a fourth of the way through and I’m HOOKED!

“Then I see him, head slumped forward in the chair next to the foot of my bed.
My heart constricts.  I think: I love you.
My head explodes.  I think: Get the f*** away from me.
Then: What the hell is his name again?”

Book Description:

My name is Nicky Frank. Except, most likely, it isn’t.

Nicole Frank shouldn’t have been able to survive the car accident, much less crawl up the steep ravine. Not in the dark, not in the rain, not with her injuries. But one thought allows her to defy the odds and flag down help: Vero.

I’m looking for a little girl. I have to save her. Except, most likely, she doesn’t exist.

Sergeant Wyatt Foster is frustrated when even the search dogs can’t find any trace of the mysterious missing child. Until Nicky’s husband, Thomas, arrives with a host of shattering revelations: Nicole Frank suffers from a rare brain injury and the police shouldn’t trust anything she says.

My husband claims he’ll do anything to save me. Except, most likely, he can’t.

Who is Nicky Frank, and what happened the night her car sailed off the road? Was it a random accident or something more sinister given the woman’s lack of family and no close friends? The deeper Wyatt digs, the more concerned he becomes. Because it turns out, in the past few months, Nicky has suffered from more than one close accident. . . . In fact, it would appear someone very much wants her dead.

This is my life. Except, most likely, it’s not. Now watch me crash and burn.

Thanks for stopping by today – be sure to leave your teaser in the comments, and hope to see you more often in 2015!
