Teaser Tuesday is a meme hosted by Should Be Reading where you grab your current read and post two non-spoiler sentences from a random page. I am currently reading The Replacement Wife by Eilen Goudge. The Replacement Wife is about:
From New York Times bestselling author Eileen Goudge comes a poignant new novel that asks the question, “What would you do if you were told you had only six months to live?” For one professional matchmaker the answer is heart-wrenching: She must find her husband’s next wife.
Camille Hart, one of Manhattan’s most sought-after matchmakers, has survived more than her fair share of hardships. Her mother died when she was a young girl, leaving her and her sister with an absentee father. Now in her forties, she has already survived cancer once, though the battle revealed just how ill-equipped her husband Edward is to be a single parent. So when doctors tell Camille that her cancer is back—and this time it’s terminal—she decides to put her matchmaking expertise to the test for one final job. Seeking stability for her children and happiness for her husband, Camille sets out to find the perfect woman to replace her when she’s gone.
But what happens when a dying wish becomes a case of “be careful what you wish for”? For Edward and Camille, the stunning conclusion arrives with one last twist of fate that no one saw coming.
At once deeply felt and witty, The Replacement Wife is an unforgettable story of love and family, and a refreshing look at the unexpected paths that lead us to our own happy endings.
Doesn't it sound awesome?! I'm really enjoying it so far and since I now have 66 WONDERFUL GFC followers I flipped to that page and found:
Camile felt her stomach turn, imagining her dad and Louise doing what she herself had done with Tim Watkins, a boy in her ninth-grade class with whom she'd made out at Serena Hughe's Christmas party the year before.
"I'll always be your mom no matter what. But your dad will need someone to help look after you and your sister when I'm gone."
I'm really enjoying The Replacement Wife so far and I can't wait to get to this page!
*By the way, I have very many books that I've read recently that I will post reviews of so watch out for that!
