My Foolish Heart - Susan May Warren

PAGE 56:

Her gaze followed his movements and affixed scars . The skin on the top of his hand snarled into a tight ball, and where his pinkie finger had been, there remained only a nub.


  1. I want to know what happened to his hand and his pinky finger. Just saying.

    Have a terrific day and weekend ahead. :)

  2. This sounds really good. I have a couple of books by this author in my TBR.

  3. The cover looks really pretty!
    Oww! on the sentence!

  4. Sounds like she falling for a working man who could be a little clumsy. It does make me curious.

  5. Oh, he's obviously been through something...LOL

    I'm curious, now.

  6. LOVE the cover art and the gal's style. I'm a bit queazy hearing some of the dude's details. Maybe that's why I hang w/ children's books. lol

  7. I was a little thrown by this one. The first sentence makes it sound likes her gaze is giving him scars....then it talks about the missing pinkie.

    Need to get the brain working a little better, Bev!

    Here's mine:

  8. Great teaser and awesome book choice too! (I used the same book today)

  9. Great choice! It has me really intrigued. I may have to add this to my TBR.

  10. makes me wanna find out what happened...thanks for posting and hosting this hop.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.

So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
