This week my teaser lines come from A Fine Imitation, a new historical novel by Amber Brock (Crown, May 2016). This quote is from Chapter 13 (p.87):
She looked out the window, hoping for some sign of an unexpected hurricane or a well-timed war that would make the roads unusable. But these thoughts came with a stab of guilt. She shouldn't wish for devastation to serve her own ends, especially not with the idea of preventing her own mother from coming to visit.Sounds like dear old Mum might not be such a welcome companion, hmmm?
I'm enjoying this one much more than I expected to. Midway through and hoping it doesn't disappoint in the second half.
