Teaser Tuesday 78: The Frog Prince

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: * Grab your current book or recent read. * Share a few “teaser” sentences from somewhere in the book. * 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 and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!



READ OVER THE WEEKEND. THIS EXCERPT REALLY HIT CLOSE TO HOME. YEAH...BEEN THERE, FELT THAT.


The tears are so close to the surface but there's no one to call, no one to tell. I’ve spent too much time trying to be okay; I don’t know how to ask for help. (pg 207)










About the Book:

The Frog Prince

By Jane Porter


Holly Bishop is the proverbial, small-town good girl. She always follows the rules, thinks of others first, and she never, ever makes mistakes. Until she marries the man she thought was her Prince Charming, who confesses on their honeymoon that he's not sexually attracted to her. Now, 14 months after, Holly's marriage is in the toilet, along with her self-esteem. Determined to start over, she moves to San Francisco, where she must navigate the landmines of dating in the big city. In the shadow of the Golden Gate and amid a population of wacky Bay Area eccentrics, Holly will discover that nice girls don't always finish last. In fact, they sometimes end up with everything they'd ever wanted.

Shelley: Yes, you can and this book was filled with emotion. It really had me worked up this weekend.

Aimee: Thank you. This book was recommended by a friend who sent me other books by Jane Porter.

Jana: Kind of hits close to home, doesn't it?

Calico: I think it's a feeling many can identify with, especially anyone who has experienced great change or loss.

I never need help with crying. I can do it on my own. :)

Heather said...

Alice: Yeah, I usually don't need any help crying, either. What can I say, I'm a Pisces. We are known for being over-emotional.
