Excerpt from Forgive me

dontforgetstevenI still have free Audible downloads codes for my first audiobook release, Don’t Forget Steven. Comment below if you would like one!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules at Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along!

I just finished Forgive Me by Daniel Palmer. An edge of your seat mystery/suspense book with  lots of gritty background about human trafficking and some interesting twists and turns.

Her mother would pounce if a single tear leaked out.

“Toughen up, Nadine,” she’d say. “The world is a brutal place, and you’d best have a thicker skin.”

Daniel Palmer, Forgive Me

At DeRose & Associates Private Investigators in Virginia, Angie DeRose strives to find and rescue endangered runaways–work that stands in stark contrast to her own safe, idyllic childhood. But in the wake of her mother’s sudden death, Angie makes a life-altering discovery. Hidden among the mementos in her parents’ attic is a photograph of a little girl, with a code and a hand-written message on the back: “May God forgive me.”

Angie has no idea what it means or how to explain other questionable items among her mother’s possessions. Her father claims to know nothing. Could Angie have a sister or other relative she was never told about? Bryce Taggart, the US Marshal working with her agency, agrees to help Angie learn the fate of the girl in the photograph. But the lies she and Bryce unearth will bring her past and present together with terrifying force. And everything she cherishes will be threatened by the repercussions of one long-ago choice–and an enemy who will kill to keep a secret hidden forever.

    This one sounds great. I added it to my wishlist. My teaser this week comes from The Wild Ways by Tanya Huff which has been sitting on TBR Mountain forever. Happy reading!
