Welcome to this week’s Teaser Tuesday!
The rules are simple:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share one or two sentences from that page
- Avoid spoilers – Pick a sentence that doesn’t give too much away
Today’s teaser comes from Lies by T.M Logan which was released in January, and I picked up the Kindle edition for 98p last week. I’ve not started this one yet but I’ve read the first page and I’m intrigued!
About the Book: WHAT IF YOUR WHOLE LIFE WAS BASED ON LIES?
When Joe Lynch stumbles across his wife driving into a hotel car park while she’s supposed to be at work, he’s intrigued enough to follow her in.
And when he witnesses her in an angry altercation with family friend Ben, he knows he ought to intervene.
But just as the confrontation between the two men turns violent, and Ben is knocked unconscious, Joe’s young son has an asthma attack – and Joe must flee in order to help him.
When he returns, desperate to make sure Ben is OK, Joe is horrified to find that Ben has disappeared.
And that’s when Joe receives the first message . . .
This is the opening paragraph
I often wonder what would have happened if I hadn’t seen her car that day.
If the light had been green instead of red.
If my son had been dozing, or daydreaming, or looking the other way.
If I’d been five seconds faster in the stodgy London traffic, or five seconds slower.
If, if, if.
But I did see her car.
And everything else flowed from that one moment, pulled on by gravity faster and faster until it was irresistible, unstoppable. Inevitable. Would things have turned out differently if I’d just driven on home?
Maybe it was fate.
