Excerpt from Every Last Lie

Don’t miss the Smashwords Summer Sale, I’ve got lots of books on sale for your summer reading!

Camp Nano is well on it’s way; I am 45,000 words into what will be the third book in the Tattooed Teardrops series.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

This has been an interesting book so far! Every Last Lie, by Mary Kubica, begins with a husband’s fairly routine death in a car accident, tragically taking place only days after the birth of the couple’s second child. While the wife believes that everything in their lives was fine, things gradually start to unravel as she discovers one secret after another, while keeping a few of her own as well.

A number of grammatical errors have grated on me—the editor seems to have been asleep at the switch for this one—it has been an interesting book so far and I am enjoying it.

I nearly correct her for the erroneous cliche, but then realize it doesn’t matter. Nothing matters anymore now that Nick is dead. Maisie’s eyes are hopeful, her smile wide.

Mary Kubica, Every Last Lie

Clara Solberg’s world shatters when her husband and their four-year-old daughter are in a car crash, killing Nick while Maisie is remarkably unharmed. The crash is ruled an accident…until the coming days, when Maisie starts having night terrors that make Clara question what really happened on that fateful afternoon.

Tormented by grief and her obsession that Nick’s death was far more than just an accident, Clara is plunged into a desperate hunt for the truth. Who would have wanted Nick dead? And, more important, why? Clara will stop at nothing to find out—and the truth is only the beginning of this twisted tale of secrets and deceit.

Told in the alternating perspectives of Clara’s investigation and Nick’s last months leading up to the crash, master of suspense Mary Kubica weaves her most chilling thriller to date—one that explores the dark recesses of a mind plagued by grief and shows that some secrets might be better left buried.
