Jo Spain: THE SLEEPING BEAUTIES




Sleeping Beauties

Quercus, Eylül 2017. World English.
misvedde hazır

Müfettiş kaşlarını çattı ve  ağaçların dibindeki toprağı inceledi. Orman içindeki açıklık alanı tararken, birden midesine kramp girdi. Bir, iki, üç, dört. Beş, çadırın altındaki hafif tümsekte duran toprağa denk geliyordu. Biri toprağın doğal katmanını temizlemiş ve üstüne çiçek dikmişti.

Beş yerde.
Beş mezar.


Ve İrlanda'nın küçük bir köyünde yaşayan genç bir kadın olan Fiona Holland, kaybolur. Onu arama çalışmaları deva ederken, fısıltılar yayılmaya başlar. Çünkü  Fiona vahşi bir tabiata sahiptir. Kaçırıldı mı yoksa kaçtı mı?

Bir hafta sonra, İrlanda'nın doğal güzelliğiyle bilinen ormanında, Glendalough vadisinde korkunç keşif yapılır.  Cesetler, son yıllarda ortadan kaybolan genç kadınlara aittir. 

Tom Reynolds ve ekibi kariyerinin en çetin davasıyla karşı karşıya - savunmasız kadınları avlayıp, hayatlarına son verinceye dek kurbanlarını esir tutan bir bir seri katil vakası.

Yakında, seri katil  Fiona Holland'ı bulmak üzeredir. Müfettiş, çok geç olmadan ona ulaşmalıdır.

Ari Goleman: INNOCENCE OFTREATMENT


Hükümetin sizi koruduğuna inanabilirsiniz,  yalnızca bir kız onların sizi nasıl kullandıklarını biliyor.

Lauren'da arkadaşlarının  söylediği her şeye inanan bir tür düzensizliği bulunmakta -  herkesin  arkadaşı olduğuna inanmaktadır. Masumiyeti onu sürekli risk altına sokarken,  durumunu düzeltmek için bir operasyon olma fırsatı bulduğunda, bunu hemen kabul edecektir. Ameliyattan sonra Lauren değişecek. Şiddet eğilimleri olan bir paranoyağa mı dönecek? Ya da yapılması gereken şeyleri yapan, dünyanın gözü pek bir  gözlemcisi mi olacaktır?, onu da kitabın ilerleyen sayfalarında okuyacağız.

Günce ve terapi oturumu metinlerinden oluşan, INNOCENCE TREATMENT romanda olaylar geliştikten çok sonra Lauren'ın güncesinden ablasının açıklamalarıyla  bir derleme şeklinde. Zorlayıcı bir genç yetişkin romanı, spekülatif kurmaca, ve  genetik mühendisliği ve hükümet sırlarını anlatan Lauren'in hikayesi sonuçta heyecan verici, önemli ve ürpertici bir roman.

THE INNOCENCE TREATMENT için övgü:


“Readers who enjoy the moral cartwheels of a nation flooded by fear and the chill of a troublingly plausible future punctuated by opportunistic and insidiously innovative scientists will find all the frissons they could ask for here. Nineteen Eighty-Four meets V for Vendetta in a thrilling package.”
Kirkus Reviews

“You need to make peace with your past. Your future depends on it…”

Erika Blair, a successful real estate agent in New York City, has it all: a great career and two beautiful daughters. But her life is thrown into darkness when her daughter Kristen dies in a train accident. Erika is guilt-ridden; she was supposed to drive both her daughters to college that day but blew them off to show another million dollar listing instead.

Her surviving daughter Annie copes with grief in her own way: she is convinced there has been a case of mistaken identity and Kristen is still alive. Between Erika’s guilt and Annie’s denial, the mother and daughter are driven apart, each alone in their own private misery.

Then Erika gets a mysterious anonymous email. “Find the missing peace.” It’s a quote from the scrapbooks she lovingly made for each of her daughters, filled with wise sayings from her own mother and grandmother. Can the message be from Kristen? Or is this just Annie’s last desperate attempt to try to reach her mother?

The emails keep coming, the clues pointing Erika to her hometown of Mackinac Island, where she spent her unhappy childhood after the mysterious death of her mother. But it is only by revisiting her own complicated past that she can find her way back to her daughters. Erika must gather her courage and go home to Mackinac before she loses them both forever.

Following her beloved mother’s death, Brett Bohlinger naturally assumes she’ll take over the family business. But she is stunned when her savvy sister-in-law inherits the lucrative company, and Brett is handed a yellowed, dog-eared life list instead.  Her multi-million-dollar inheritance hinges upon completing the ten remaining goals she wrote down in the 8th grade—on the very list her mother fished from Brett’s Beverly Hills 90210 wastebasket twenty years ago.

But Brett’s just not that girl anymore. Have a baby? She gave up on that a long time ago. Become a teacher? Surely she’s not expected to swap her lucrative salary and stock options for battling students in the classroom. Buy a horse? The condo board doesn’t even allow fish. And a relationship with her cold-hearted, distant father is out of the question. He’s been dead for seven years. But Brett’s biggest challenge is Andrew. When her driven, big-city boyfriend comes home toting a bottle of Perrier-Jouet to celebrate, she doesn’t have the heart—or the guts—to tell him she is not, and never will be, President of Bohlinger Cosmetics.

Entangled in a web of deceit, Brett is forced to examine the life she chose and the life she dreamed of as a teen. With a multi-million dollar inheritance at stake and nothing but her mother’s letters to guide her, she wades from her comfy Gold Coast neighborhood into the streets of Southside Chicago in search of a young girl’s dreams. There she faces challenges and victories, and loves and losses, that her youthful heart never could have imagined. 

“You won't want to miss Lori Nelson Spielman's remarkable debut, an intensely emotional novel of transformation and trust.  It's about how we let go, and how we never let go.  The Life List has great heart, and even greater soul.”
—Sarah Addison Allen, New York Times- bestselling author

Irresistible!  Everything I love and look for in women's fiction . . . A clever, funny, moving page-turner.”
—Susan Elizabeth Phillips, New York Times-bestselling author of The Great Escape

“A wonderful, touching story that reminds us to live life to its fullest.”

The entire country seems captivated by the Forgiveness Stones craze, a pouch of stones containing a chain letter of sorts, requiring the recipient to forgive, and then to seek forgiveness. Everyone, that is, except New Orleans’ favorite talk show host, Hannah Farr. Intensely private and dating the city’s mayor, Hannah has kept her very own pouch of Forgiveness Stones hidden for two years—and her dark past concealed for nearly two decades. But when Fiona Knowles, creator of the Forgiveness Stones, appears on Hannah’s show, Hannah unwittingly reveals her tale of abandonment to her entire viewing audience.

Manipulated by the show’s producer and encouraged by her sympathetic fans, Hannah reluctantly embarks on a public journey to forgive her mother and find peace. But as Hannah examines the past, the lines between fact and fiction become blurred. Is the truth she’s clung to for twenty years the truth? And how could she, or anyone else, forgive her if it turns out that she’s the wrongdoer rather than the victim?

In hopes of reclaiming her mother’s love, and a glimmer of an authentic life she never could have imagined, Hannah must decide if the future’s beautiful promise is worth revealing her unsightly past.

“With quirky characters, Spielman spins an effervescent tale in which betrayals fizzle out into human weaknesses and grudges dissolve into mercy. Bright prose, a plucky heroine, and more than a few plot twists make for a delightful, light read.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Spielman's heroine is both likable and relatable, and the power of confession, forgiveness, and love shines all the way through this touching novel. For all readers of contemporary women's fiction, especially fans of Cecelia Ahern and Sarah Jio.” Library Journal
