The Girl With A Clock for A Heart by Peter Swanson....Review & Giveaway!

If you are looking for a fantastic read, I have one for you today. The Girl With a Clock for a Heart by Peter Swanson is a riveting tale that is just perfect for curling up with on a cool Autumn night.  Here is the scoop...

Already optioned for film, The Girl with a Clock for a Heart is Peter Swanson’s electrifying tale of romantic noir, with shades of Hitchcock and reminiscent of the classic movie Body Heat. It is the story of a man swept into a vortex of irresistible passion and murder when an old love mysteriously reappears.
On an ordinary Friday evening at his favorite Boston tavern, George Foss’s comfortable, predictable life is shattered when a beautiful woman sits down at the bar, a woman who vanished without a trace twenty years ago.
Liana Dector isn’t just an ex-girlfriend, the first love George couldn’t quite forget. She’s also a dangerous enigma and quite possibly a cold-blooded killer wanted by the police. Suddenly, she’s back—and she needs George’s help. Ruthless men believe she stole some money . . . and they will do whatever it takes to get it back.
George knows Liana is trouble. But he can’t say no—he never could—so he makes a choice that will plunge him into a terrifying whirlpool of lies, secrets, betrayal, and murder from which there is no sure escape.
Bold and masterful, full of malicious foreboding and subtle surprises, The Girl with a Clock for a Heart is an addictive, nonstop thriller—an ever-tightening coil of suspense that grips you right up to its electrifying end. 

This book had me at the edge of my seat.  I loved, loved, loved it.  I really felt for George, the poor guy!  Liana is his first love.  The one who got away.  The book is told in past tense and in the current times which gives deeper insight to the characters and their relationship.  The book is a thriller/mystery but what I find it to be more is a tale of relationships.  Just how far would you go for the "love of your life"?  Will you believe that person at any cost and go to any lengths to defend him/her?  Peter Swanson is masterful with words and has created an engaging thriller with characters you might not always relate with (wake up, George!) but ones you are deeply invested in.  Pre-order this book today on Amazon by clicking HERE.

I like to read while driving. There are a lot of traffic jams and a 20 minute commute sometimes takes 1.5 hours in our area.

I love to read especially before I go to bed

Laine said...

I usually read when I am riding the BART to work or when I am waiting at the doctor's office, so it isn't really tied down to a particular time of day. :)
