Teaser Tuesday: April 28th

Happy Tuesday!!  Working on a review for When We Were Animals by Joshua Gaylord – stay tuned!

And just started Maggie: A gripping saga of the swinging sixties by Marie Maxwell releasing this Friday May 1st.  So far a decent story about a very strong-willed 16-year old, but nothing too historical about it.  We’ll see where it goes!


“A huge wave of guilt and self-hatred enveloped her as she realized the enormity of what she had done.  She couldn’t blame anyone but herself for the situation she was in because the accident was all her fault.”
(15% into book*)

What do you think?  Thanks for coming by – please leave your teaser in the comments!

Book Description:

1960s. Maggie Wheaton’s life is almost perfect. Confident, bright and popular, she lives with her loving, wealthy parents in a close-knit Cambridgeshire village. But, just days after her sixteenth birthday, her world falls apart: an accident kills both her parents, and then she suffers the ultimate betrayal when she learns a life-changing family secret. Maggie has no choice but to go and live with her appointed guardian, Ruby Riordan, in the seaside town of Southend, where she sets out on a deliberate path of self-destruction. Will Ruby be able to save her from herself, or is it all too little too late?

    Sounds like an interesting read, although it’s a shame it doesn’t have many historical references… That probably would have made Maggie that much more unique. Great teaser, I’m looking forward to hear your thought on it when you’re finished! Here’s my teaser….

  2. What a brilliant sounding book, definitely one I’d enjoy as I adore books with family secrets – sounds as if it has quite a lot of emotion too. Here is my Tuesday post https://cleopatralovesbooks.wordpress.com/2015/04/28/first-chapter-first-paragraph-april-28/

  3. I’ve been hooked on books set in the 60s recently. Apparently I’m trying to relive my youthful days, lol.
