Instead of working on a recipe post yesterday (ahem), I was busy working on a website revamp for my sister-in-law, Meredith (doesn’t it look purdy?!). And for good reason, it was in anticipation of her very own book release.
Did you catch that?
It was for a book release. My SIL is officially a published author.
As such, her book Straightjacket, earns the coveted spot for this week’s Friday Finds.
Eighteen-year-old Anna has lived her whole life in shame, losing herself in books to cope with crippling panic attacks triggered by her abusive parents. Forced into a psychiatric hospital, she can’t imagine a future that’s anything but bleak —until she meets Caleb, a gifted, 19-year-old artist who insists he’s an angel.
He swears his mission is to help Anna break free from her parents’ control and fulfill a destiny that she can only dream of. The doctors, however, are convinced that Caleb is delusional.
Anna doesn’t want to be that girl who’s in love with the crazy guy, but when she sees his stunning portraits of her and the way he risks everything to keep her safe, she can’t help but imagine a new future for both of them, filled with hope. But just when it seems they’ve created heaven on earth, Caleb’s past emerges full force, threatening to destroy their tiny, blissful world. And Anna has to decide if she should follow her heart, or if Caleb’s really as troubled as his doctors say…
Now, you might think that because we’re related that this information is a tad bit biased. I’ll have you know that I’m not the only one to think she’s the bees knees. She has been getting rave reviews, including this stellar one from Tiffany’s Bookshelf.
If that doesn’t convince you to buy the book, I don’t know what will. Except, perhaps a link that will allow you to purchase it in less than 3 clicks.
