Last week was the perfect ime for me to spend time on the sofa reading. I enjoy time off from work as I can then spend time doing what I enjoy. And reading is definitely one of the things I enjoy and do not have enough time to do.
I began Lisa Jackson’s novel Fatal Burn last week Tuesday. I had read one of her stories before and was looking forward to this one. The teaser I share with you suggests that she did not disappoint me:
“In a daze, she realised she was being dragged into the van.
No! Dani, don’t let this happen. Fight! Run! Scream!
She flailed wildly, but her arms and legs were like rubber and any blow she landed was weak. Darkness welled at the corner of her brain, dragging her under.” (p50, Zebra Books, 2006)
The teaser refers to the kidnapping of a child, Dani. The story centres on the efforts by her father, Travis Settler, to get her back. Finding his daughter means he has to be in contact with her birth mother, Shannon Flannery. Unexpected events happen in the story and I was glued to the pages until the ending. Ths tale is definitely an exciting thriller.
What are you reading this week? Feel free to share a few sentences from the book in the comments.
