Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
My Teaser this week is from Dear Daughter by Elizabeth Little, I’ve read many good reviews of this book, and having started it myself, I can see why.
‘As soon as they processed my release Noah and I hit the ground running. A change of clothes. A wig. An inconspicuous sedan. We doubled back once, twice, then drove south when we were really headed east. In San Francisco we had a girl who looked like me board a plane to Hawaii.
Oh, I thought I was so clever.
But you probably already know that I’m not.’
LA IT girl Janie Jenkins has it all. The looks, the brains, the connections. The criminal record.
Ten years ago, in a trial that transfixed America, Janie was convicted of murdering her mother. Now she’s been released on a technicality she’s determined to unravel the mystery of her mother’s last words, words that send her to a tiny town in the very back of beyond. But with the whole of America’s media on her tail, convinced she’s literally got away with murder, she has to do everything she can to throw her pursuers off the scent.
She knows she really didn’t like her mother. Could she have killed her? Amazon
Ainsley’s hand was wrapped around the bicep of a guy with the oily good looks of a serial adulterer. She was wearing an outfit so relentlessly hideous that I refuse to describe it.
She stood just outside the door to the study, examining the girls and toeing the threshold like it was quarantine tape.
