St. Valentine’s Day

And of course, today is Valentine’s Day! I’ve gathered a bunch of books featuring strong friendships rather than the usual insta-love theme that is so popular these days.

Read your fill of great friendships here.

Teaser Tuesday

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

Since it is Mystery Thriller Week, my teaser is from a kidnap thriller I read recently, Missing Child by Patricia MacDonald. An interesting read with lots of tension and a number of twists that will leave you wondering:

She bent down to examine the damage, and saw something dark and shiny on the imploded bumper. She reached down to touch it, and her fingers came up wet and sticky. Caitlin held up her hand and stared at it. There was no mistaking the substance on her fingers.

Patricia MacDonald, Missing Child

Heart-pounding domestic suspense from an internationally-bestselling author – One morning Caitlin Eckhart receives a phone call that changes her life forever – her much-loved six-year-old stepson Geordie has disappeared from school. It soon becomes clear that someone must have deliberately taken him. Distraught, Caitlin and her husband, Noah, make an anguished public appeal for his return. But Caitlin has a secret from her past that is about to catch up with her, and as Geordie’s continued absence brings her relationship with Noah to breaking point, she stands to lose everything that she loves.
