Today's Read & Giveaway: Two Graves by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

What if you learned that your long-dead spouse was really still alive? How would feel when you met again?

As the woman stepped forward, her surroundings vanished, her entire attention focused on the man who watched her approach. Thousands of times she had imagined this moment, spun it out in her mind in all its many variants, always ending with the bitter thought that it could never happen; that it would remain only a dream. And yet here he was. He looked older, but not by much: his alabaster skin, his fine patrician features, his glittering eyes that held her own so intently, awakened a storm of feeling and memory and—even at this time of extreme danger—desire.
Two Graves by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child (Hachette / Grand Central Publishing, 2012, p. 4)

Alabaster skin? Does this mean vampire, or just no time in the sun?!!

Great teaser. It looks like I need to find and read the first book in this trilogy. My teasers this week are from Aurelia by Anne Osterlund and Dying to Tell by Rita Herron. Happy reading and happy holidays!

I think this book sounds fantastic and like something that I would really love. I like the idea of a spouse being able to come back from death like that. I think there are many people who wish for that. Great teaser today.
