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.
As they came out of the woods, she looked up at the sky. “It’s cooling off. I could probably use the kindling. A nice fire, a glass of wine–of course, I won’t be able to get the bottle out of a beautiful cabinet, but I’ll live. I won’t be inviting you in, either.” “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?”
P.S. As of now, the hardback edition of The Search is currently on sale for $3.99 on the Barnes and Noble site.
