How We Started by Luanne Rice

Last week I announced that
Luanne Rice was releasing her 30th novel on June 5th
and a very special giveaway.

Little Night, which deals with themes of domestic violence and how it affects the entire family, has already garnered fantastic pre-pub buzz including a starred Publishers Weekly review which calls the book “poetic and stirring” and a starred Library Journal review calling it an “outstanding read that both chills and warms the soul.”

You can find the full post on the entry form here.

I also told you about a new book available now on Kindle for just $1.99. Two original stories featuring characters from The Silver Boat and Little Night.

How We Started

In these stories, bestselling author Luanne Rice gives her readers two tales of early love and longing. “Paul and Clare” introduces the heroine of her upcoming novel, Little Night, and offers a glimpse into how she met the love of her life—and the beginning of her life-long passion for birds and nature, even in New York City. “Miss Martha’s Vineyard” is a snapshot of the quirky, unconditional friendship with larger-than-life blueblood Harrison Thaxter that has kept Rory McCarthy from The Silver Boat afloat even in rough romantic seas.

Dollycas’s Thoughts
I really enjoyed both short stories but Paul and Clare’s story really has me anxious for my copy of Little Night. Two families each with their own problems. Paul and Clare come together returning a baby bird to the nest as kids and their love continued to bloom through high school. They are preparing to be apart as Paul goes away to college. Pledging to be together forever no matter how far apart they will be for a few years, but it is not the distance between colleges that threatens  their “forever.”

Rice leaves us hanging and counting the days to her new release. An excellent marketing tool!
