Can’t wait to read the next Charlaine Harris book “Deadlocked”? Well the rest of chapter 2 that was previously posted is on Gollancz.co.uk website. LINK HERE. In addition to chapter 2 they also have the full text of chapter one! Chapter one here:
Here’s a small snippet of chapter 2:
[box] Though it was good to see Halleigh, when I got back into the car with my stamps I was feeling a little blue. I turned the key in the ignition, but I didn’t put the car in reverse.
I knew I was a lucky woman in many respects. But there was life being created all around me, and I wasn’t …
I shut down that line of thought with a sharp command to myself I would not start down the self-pity path. Just because I wasn’t pregnant and wasn’t married to someone who could make me that way, that was no reason to feel like an island in the stream. I shook myself briskly and set off to complete the rest of my errands. When I caught a glimpse of Faye de Leon coming out of Grabbit Kwik, my attitude adjusted. Faye had been pregnant six times, and she was around my age. She’d told Maxine Fortenberry that she hadn’t wanted the last three. But her husband loved to see her pregnant, and he loved kids, and Faye allowed herself to be used “like a puppy mill,” as Maxine put it.
Yes, attitude adjustment, indeed.
I had my evening meal and watched television and read one of my new library books that night, and I felt just fine, all by myself, every time I thought about Faye.[/box]
The book will be released on 5/1/2012. Can’t post the review yet but I am looking forward to discussing the book with the fans!
