Excerpt and Giveaway: Triangles by Kimberly Ann Miller


In addition to it being my sister's graduation today, I have more exciting things in store:) I have the opportunity to introduce you to a book that's been on my tbr pile ever since I learned about it and it didn't even have a cover or a release date. The synopsis just sounded so intriguing and I knew this was a book I wanted to read. Well, ladies and gents, yesterday was the official release date so I'm happy to announce that we can all get to read it now:) I hope you enjoy the excerpt and be sure to participate in the giveaway. Good luck, lovelies!


Title: Triangles
Author: Kimberly Ann Miller
Release Date: 06/18/13
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press

A cruise ship. A beautiful island. Two sexy guys. What could possibly go wrong?
In the Bermuda Triangle—a lot.
Hoping to leave behind the reminders of her crappy life--her father's death years ago, her mother's medical problems, and the loser who’s practically stalking her--seventeen-year-old Autumn Taylor hops on a ship with her sister for a little distraction. When she wakes up in the Bermuda Triangle, she fears she's gone nuts for more than one reason: that loser’s suddenly claiming they're a happy couple... a hot guy is wrapping his arms around her and saying "Happy Anniversary"... and suddenly, she’s full of bruises, losing her hair, and getting IV medication. Autumn visits the ship's doctor, hoping for a pill or a shot to make the craziness go away. Instead, she's warned that these "alternate realities" could become permanent.
She just has to ask herself one question—how the hell is she going to get out of this mess?


Excerpt


“Are you all right, honey?”

I opened my eyes. An attractive young woman with red hair and brilliant green eyes was looking at me. What I thought was salt water from the ocean must have been tears because my face was the only one nearby that was wet. I glanced at her concerned expression and smiled. “Yes, thank you. I’m fine.” I swiped away a tear with my finger. “Just…everything’s fine.”

She stepped closer and lowered her voice. “This cruise will change your life. Nothing will be the same when it’s over, but it will be worth it. You’ll see.” Her emerald eyes twinkled, and she nodded her head once.

I forced a laugh to be polite. “Thanks. Enjoy your cruise.”

What a weirdo. What did that even mean? How could a cruise change my life? I moved from my spot to avoid more weirdness from her and found a less populated area at the back of the ship. New York and New Jersey disappeared behind us as we charged toward Bermuda and away from the mess my life had become.

A cloud covered the retreating sun, sending shivers through me. A white-haired lady dropped her purse and lots of change tumbled out. A penny hit my foot and landed on tails.

My cell phone buzzed. I pulled it from my pocket. I had thirteen messages and thirteen texts. How would Nisha survive the next five days without hearing from me? I took care of the messages and told her I’d call her when we got back to Jersey.

Even though I was not very superstitious, a bad feeling crawled into the pit of my stomach and took up residence.

I knew what I was leaving behind, but what was I floating toward?

  1. Triangles sounds like a brilliant read Siiri. I'm really in the mood lately for books dealing with parallel worlds and alternate realities and I think Triangles definitely sounds like something that I would enjoy! Thanks for putting it on my radar! :)

    1. Ha, I haven't read one in a long time either so it'd be right up my alley:)

  2. I'm so looking forward to read Triangles, even though I've heard some not-so-good things about it. I've never heard of Bermuda Triangle before, so when I googled it, I was so surprised to find that it is one of those paranormal places. That is so cool! Thanks for sharing the excerpt, Siiri!

    1. I've seen so many Discovery shows about the place and its weird people-gone-missing stories. I haven't actually stumbled upon any reviews yet, but not many of my blogging/reading friends have that in their tbr pile on GR either. I think it sounds good though and I'm willing to give it a try:)

  5. I'm really excited to read this one. I keep checking to see if my library has put it in the system, but they haven't yet. I keep trying to think if I've ever read anything else about the Bermuda Triangle, and I can't think of any. Thanks for sharing this except, Siiri!
