Live To Tell by Wendi Corsi Straub - Sweepstakes Offer and Review!


I've been away for a bit, dealing with that silly real-life that interfers with the things I love to do..read, and write about what I'm reading! But I'm back, and I hope to have lots of great new books to share with you!

Today, I want to tell you about a wonderful offer from our friends at Avon Books in support of suspense author Wendy Corsi Staub's new book, LIVE TO TELL!

To celebrate the publication of New York Times bestselling author Wendy Corsi Staub’s Avon debut, LIVE TO TELL, Lake Austin Spa Resort (the #1 rated spa destination on North America) is partnering with Avon Books/an Imprint of HarperCollins, to offer readers the chance to relax and recharge--and meet bestselling author Wendy Corsi Staub!

Bestselling author Lee Child called LIVE TO TELL “solid gold suspense ... this one is a wild ride,”

ABOUT THE BOOK:




Secrets can scandalize … In a lovely suburban town just north of New York City, the gossip mill runs more efficiently than the commuter train line. And in every impeccably decorated house, they’re talking about Lauren Walsh. They say that nothing could be worse than being abandoned by your husband for another woman. They’re wrong.

Secrets can shock … All Lauren wants is to protect her children from the pain of her messy divorce. But when their father goes missing, a case of mistaken identity puts all their lives in danger, and a stealthy predator lurks in the shadows, watching…waiting.

Secrets can kill … Lauren is about to uncover an unfathomable truth—a truth this cold-blooded mastermind would never let her live to tell.


MY THOUGHTS:

I don't normally like a lot of suspense, but I found myself enthralled with LIVE TO TELL. Wendy Corsi Straub pulls her readers into the story, and all I can say, is hang on, it's a bumpy, thrilling ride. LIVE TO TELL is the first in a planned trilogy that promises to be as exciting as the first intallment. The next book, SCARED TO DEATH, comes out later this year.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Wendy Corsi Staub is the author of ten novels of suspense, including the New York Times bestsellers Don't Scream, Most Likely To Die, The Final Victim, and She Loves Me Not. She is currently working on her next suspense novel. To learn more about Wendy and LIVE TO TELL, visit her website at http://www.wendycorsistaub.com/
