‘THROUGH A YELLOW WOOD’ by CAROLYN J. ROSE
So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story, just click on the book image, or to read more about both book and author go here.
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.
By unspoken mutual consent, we turned our backs on the dog pens and walked up opposite edges of the steps, skirting the dark stain in the center. Except for faint tracks leading to a boot scraper and the coco fiber mat laid before the door, and except for a few pine needles here and there and an old broom leaning against the wall at the corner of the house, the narrow porch was clean and the windows on either side of the door sparkled.
I wiped my feet on the mat and got out the key. Despite its sharp edges, it slid into the lock as if the channel had been recently oiled, the bolt clicked back smoothly, and the hinges worked without a hint of a squeak. Clarence had taken good care of this place.
As this was an author invitation to read and review, a complimentary Kindle download of ‘ Hemlock Lake’, was gifted to me by its author, Carolyn J. Rose
This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog articles I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.
NB. It would appear that MizB has decided to take a well earned short break from hosting her daily memes, in order to catch up on some quality reading time. However I hope that you will enjoy the lines I have decided to feature this week and thanks for choosing to visit.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by …
