Today's Read: The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D. by Nichole Bernier

How well do you know your closest friends? Kate always thought of Elizabeth as a happy wife and mother who seemed to have everything under control. But after she inherits her friend's trunk of secret journals and diaries and starts to read, Kate realizes there was a private Elizabeth she never knew existed.

Kate turned the key in the lock and gave a push, and the front door opened with the sucking sound of vacuum-packed juice. The kids raced past her into the house. Kate dropped two duffels of linens and assessed the familiar space, a single square footprint that was kitchen and family room in one. She yanked back heavy seasonal drapes the length of two walls, and the room grew spacious. Enormous windows opened onto a yard like a football field, and beyond it, the ocean. (p. 39)

I have been interested in reading this one for awhile, and really want to find out the secrets of the notes. This is a book that I have been really intrigued about for some time, but haven't gotten to read yet.

The author did a great job describing the setting. I like the synopsis of the book too. I'm adding it to my wish list.
My Teaser is from A LOT LIKE A LADY.
