I was given the wonderful opportunity of participating in the Legacy of Eden Scavenger Blog Tour with several other participating blogs! Reading The Legacy of Eden by Nelle Davy was quite the experience, but you'll have to wait and come back on February 16th to see the full review ;)
In the mean time, enjoy this short, little teaser from the book to tide you over::
"I guess that must have been why they tracked you down.” She paused. “Have you heard from Claudia? Do you know if they contacted her, too?”
I thought about our eldest sister, probably dismissing shop assistants with a bored wave of her hand in some mall in Palm Beach.
“No, but she has a different name now. She’s married.”
“Did not stop them from getting to me. Or to you, or don’t you go by our mother’s name anymore?”
I swallowed hard at the reproach. “No, it’s still Pincetti.”
She snorted. “And there was once a time when Hathaways were crawling out of our ears, now none to be found. I suppose I was the first person you rang when you got the letter, was I? I am so touched. I wonder why that would be?”
I closed my eyes, blocking out the orchestra of sounds from the taxis and crowds on the road below and the various cacophony of voices that rose in a fog from the streets. I forced my mind to blank, to hold my breath in my chest, to keep everything still.
You can read the next excerpt from this book over at Chicklit Club, and for a complete list of all other participating blogs in the tour and for more excerpts from The Legacy of Eden, click HERE.
Don't forget to come back on the 16th!
