‘The Assignment’ by Geraldine Solon

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of ‘Should Be Reading’.

Anyone can take part, by just doing the following:


  1.  Grab your current read.
  2.  Open to a random page.
  3. Share a couple of  “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
  4. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences.
  5. Remember to share the title and author too.
  6. Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it and you can share other people’s.

It would be great if you then decided to leave a comment for MizB, as we all like to receive them and are interested in sharing your thoughts.


‘The Assignment’ by Geraldine Solon

This will be the third time that women’s fiction author, Geraldine Solon, has invited me to review her work. Whilst all her books are in the same genre, they are all so diverse in their synopses, that I never fail to find a new story that will enthrall.

As I have only just started reading this book, I have jumped ahead to roughly the mid-way point, to avoid spoilers.

So as not to show any spoilers, I have not included a synopsis for this book, however, if you want to find out more about it, just click on the book image.

If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.

Sophie considered his suggestion. What Eric said was true. Why hadn’t she thought about this? In addition to traveling, it was writing that made her happy.

Happiness swelled inside her. She’d forgotten what it felt like to be truly loved and understood.

As this was an author  invitation to read and review, a Kindle download was sent to me free of charge, in return for an honest and unbiased opinion.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog article I may post. Any thoughts or comments are my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • Wow. Interesting teasers. From the second one alone, it sounds like it’d be a very interesting romance? Interesting cover too.

    Thanks for stopping by

    • Hi Felicia,

      Thanks for stopping by Fiction Books today. It is always great to ‘meet’ someone new and I do love to chat, so feel free to stop by often.

      I think that a romance is very much on the cards here, although the book has some more serious issues to deal with as well.

      I find the cover quite sultry and brooding, but then Geraldine’s covers always invoke so much of the feeling that I experience within the book’s pages.

    • Hi Sandra,

      Reading makes me happy, but I do take copious notes, either to highlight passages for the weekly memes, or to help jog my memory when I write a review. Keeping a neat notebook is also very satisfying.

      Thanks for stopping by, your comments are much appreciated.

    • Hi Beth,

      Geraldine’s books are always a ‘nice’ read, in the end … This comment from her, just about sums up her writing style …

      “I’ve always been a firm believer that love conquers all and that every woman’s experience is a story in itself. Life is a never-ending journey and my imagination and experiences have inspired me to write powerful stories. Although my books are fiction, my goal is to offer compelling lessons about life and love. The message I wish to convey to my readers is that despite the many challenges we face in this world, we must have hope and faith. Overall, it is love that binds us together.”

      The book is shaping up well so far.

      Thanks for stopping by, your comments are always welcome here.

    • Hi Claire,

      Thanks for deciding to stop by and say hello. I love ‘meeting’ new people and I am always ready for a chat, so feel free to call in as often as you would like, you can discuss anything here!

      Geraldine’s books all follow roughly the same general format, although this one does seem as though it is going to be a little more intense than the others. I am enjoying it so far, although I already have a pretty good idea where the storyline is going .. the getting there is all part of the fun though!!

      Have a good week and enjoy your reading.

    • Hi Tracy,

      Whew! I’m glad that the lines don’t reveal too much … that there is a romance is pretty obvious and I think I have worked out the rest of the storyline … but you’ll just have to wait and see, won’t you?

      Thanks for the comment, it’s always good to talk with you.

    • Hi Mary Ann,

      I opened the file at a random page and I have to say that the teaser lines are quite emotional and descriptive. I am not very far into the book, however I don’t think that those lines tell the whole story, so keep watching for the review.

      Geraldine always has such great covers, they have a genuine tie-in with the storyline, which is important to me.

      The cover for her pevious book ‘Chocolicious’, attracted many comments, mainly from frustrated bloggers who then craved chocolate or cake!


      Thanks for stopping by, it is always good to talk with you.

    • Hi Naida,

      Yes, those words are particularly poignant, aren’t they?

      This will be the third book of Geraldine’s that I have read, so I know her style of writing now. ‘The Assignment’ looks set to be equally as moving as the previous two stories, although the getting there may not be quite as comfortable!

      Nice to speak with you, hope you are having a good week.
