Flaunting Fiction Friday

Today I'm recommending one of my friends books; not because she's my friend, but because I truly loved the book!
Terri Sonoda has a blog called Terri's Little Corner where she makes you laugh with her self-deprecating humor.  Her book, Dark Pretense, is a very different kind of novel, unlike anything I've read before.  Her main character Katy played with imaginary friends as a child.  But unlike most children, when she grew up, she didn't leave her imaginary friends behind.  Carrying that fantasy into adulthood sometimes causes her to escape reality altogether.   When Louisa, a caregiver at the facility where Katy resides, decides there's more to Katy than meets the eye, she places herself in serious danger.  I couldn't put this book down until I finished it--the premise was that fascinating!  

 If you're looking for a book to read while curled up in a blanket with a cup of hot chocolate, or a glass of wine, this is the book!  Click on this link to read the synopsis and other reviews!  (" Look Inside " link only works when you go to the synopsis link above.)

That Fishducky must be one fast reader! But it does sound interesting.

Lisa: I think you'll love it!

rosaria: I wish I could make money at this, but I just like to share when I read a book I truly enjoy!

fishducky: I'm so glad you agree! But you truly are a speed reader!

ABFTS: Like I said, it's different! If you do buy it, I hope you enjoy it.

Theresa: I would not have praised the book on my blog if I didn't really love it!

Stephen: It is an unusual read.

I'll add it to my list and look for it next time I go to Amazon, which won't be anytime soon. I have too many books to get through as it is.
