Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday

I had mentioned I wanted to read this book to one of the library assistants and she actually reminded me to borrow it. lol. I absolutely love this cover though, so if the book is really good I might just have to go buy my own copy anyway. Or maybe the author will stumble on through my town, which would be the best scenario. You never know.



"There are things that make us stand out. Things normal people dismiss, because people believe what they want to believe. The difference with us is that we believe in everything."

Kill Me Softly, Sarah Cross, page 121


Synopsis;

Mirabelle's past is shrouded in secrecy, from her parents' tragic deaths to her guardians' half-truths about why she can't return to her birthplace, Beau Rivage. Desperate to see the town, Mira runs away a week before her sixteenth birthday—and discovers a world she never could have imagined.
In Beau Rivage, nothing is what it seems—the strangely pale girl with a morbid interest in apples, the obnoxious playboy who's a beast to everyone he meets, and the chivalrous guy who has a thing for damsels in distress. Here, fairy tales come to life, curses are awakened, and ancient stories are played out again and again.
But fairy tales aren't pretty things, and they don't always end in happily ever after. Mira has a role to play, a fairy tale destiny to embrace or resist. As she struggles to take control of her fate, Mira is drawn into the lives of two brothers with fairy tale curses of their own . . . brothers who share a dark secret. And she'll find that love, just like fairy tales, can have sharp edges and hidden thorns.

  4. I like the way the line in your teaser -- "we believe in everything" -- ties in with all the fairy tales in the synopsis. Sounds like there's plenty of opportunities for drama in this book!
