Valentine vows to find the real killer, but when she finally uncovers the horrifying truth, she must choose to face her own dark secrets, even if it means losing Rowan in the end.
**I asked Teri to list her top 10 favorite books and here is her answer!**
Wow, this is such an impossible question. I can’t pick favorite children, so I’m just going to look at my bookshelf and shout out the first ten books I see that make my heart sing with warm memories. So I’ll call this list:
TEN BOOKS I LOVED IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER
1. Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling because it had me standing in line with my children at midnight, wearing costumes. Growing up as a bookworm, I never dreamed that I would someday be completely obsessed with the same books as my children at the same time. It was bonding and wonderful.
2. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. The characters live inside you for a while.
3. Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien. I cried true tears after reading the last line of the last book because it was over.
4. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. Great fun with amazing plotting and writing.
5. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith (also wrote 101 Dalmations). I adore quirky people and places, and this book enchanted me.
6. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. I mean, of course.
7. Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor. So unique and lovely.
8. Cinder by Marissa Meyer. The first book is fun. The next three books in the series are just amazing. Couldn’t stop turning pages.
9. Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen. People keep remaking the movie because the story is timeless and perfect.
10. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Enough said.
11. Any book written by Kate Morton. The one I’m looking at on my bookshelf is The House at Riverton.
12. What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty. A “must read” for anyone who’s been married for more than 5 years.
13. The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I was sold from the first page.
(Oops! This is more than ten books.)
