Peek to Pique: The Search by Nora Roberts

Peek to Pique

Welcome to the first edition of “Peek to Pique,” a weekly feature I created to share snippets of my current read, as well as books on my TBR shelf. The point of “Peek to Pique” is simple: to give readers a glimpse (peek) of a book in the hopes to entice (pique) them to add it to their own TBR. A peek to pique your interest. Get it? What can I say, I’m a sucker for alliteration. Without further ado, this week’s peek is from Nora Robert’s The Search.

“Do you think if I wanted to finish up what we started back there I’d wait for an invitation?”
“No,” she said after a moment. “I should find that arrogant and off-putting. I have no idea why I don’t. Why don’t you want to finish what we started back there?”
He smiled at her. “You’ll be thinking about that, won’t you? I like your house.”
Baffled, she turned to study it as he was. “My house?”
