Just in


Charlie, Presumed Dead was supposed to on the bottom of my review pile, being the last book received. It didn’t even make it to the pile. I flicked through, read a chapter … and then I was finished. Let me warn you – there is a big twist.

Here’s the teaser:

Then she turns, and we both part for our separate cars.

I’ve almost reached mine when I turn to watch her recede into the crowd. The thing I can’t figure out – the thing this whole crazy idea I had depends on – is whether I can trust her. Because I know she can’t trust me. (p34)

Charlie, Presumed Dead

Here’s the blurb:

In Paris, family and friends gather to mourn the passing of Charlie Price, presumed dead after a horrific accident. At the funeral, his two girlfriends—Lena and Aubrey—uncover their boyfriend’s shocking betrayal. Charlie led a double life, and they are the casualties.

Over the course of a week, the girls embark on a mind-bending search for answers. Is Charlie still alive? What else was he hiding? As a trail of Charlie’s deceptions carries them across Europe and Asia, the girls’ deepening friendship sustains them. The truth is within their grasp—but when they each discover that the other has been harboring secrets of her own, will their own lies destroy them?

Charlie, Presumed Dead is a compelling psychological thriller that will keep readers guessing beyond the final page.

What do you think? I read this in one sitting. It’s available from June 1 here.


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!



  1. Sounds fascinating! I like it when a book grabs me and jumps the line of books I planned to read. My YA teaser this week comes from The Cage by Megan Shepherd. My other teaser this week comes from the latest in a science fiction series I adore – Dragon in Exile by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. Happy reading!


  2. Wow. Sounds very interesting. I’ll have to look for this one.
