Thursday Thread

Posted: January 26, 2012 in Books

Okay, so it’s Thursday and I wrote a book called Thread of Hope and those things kinda go together so I’m turning Thursdays into Thursday Threads.  See what I did there???  My cleverness astounds you!!!  Anyway, now that you’re astounded, here’s what it’s all about – every Thursday I’m going to post something related to Thread of Hope.  BOOM!  You know you like it.

Since today is the first day, just a little background on the book:

Seven years after Joe Tyler’s daughter Elizabeth was abducted, he hasn’t stopped looking for answers, and he hasn’t forgotten the friend who stood by him as he lost his wife, his home, and his career in his search. Now he’s been brought back to San Diego by the news that this friend has been arrested for beating up a teenage girl—a girl not much older than Elizabeth would be now.  Joe is convinced Chuck Winslow is innocent, but Chuck is in a coma and can’t explain what happened. And the more Joe hears about what Chuck’s been up to in the years he’s been gone, the less Joe recognizes his old friend. To find out the truth, he will have to face his ex-wife, his former bosses, and a hometown full of wealth, lies, and illicit privilege. When Chuck’s accuser goes missing, Joe must decide where his loyalties truly lie, as he continues to wrestle with the haunting memories of the past.

OMG.  How good does THAT sound???  I wish I had written that book!  Oh, wait.  I did.  Awkward…

And the readers at Amazon love it.  LOVE.  IT.  Here’s one review:

“I have been a Noah Braddock fan for a long time and was thrilled to see this new title by Jeff Shelby. Riveting characters, snappy dialogue and a lightning-fast plot make this a can’t-put-down page turner. Joe Tyler, the protagonist in this series, isn’t just another Noah — he’s deeper, richer, more complex. The first person narrative of a man who has lost his daughter allows the reader to experience his pain and anguish firsthand and I guarantee the last few pages of the book will leave you demanding the next in the series….SOON.”

YEAH THEY WILL!!!

Hey, so, if any of this interests you, you can find the book right here.  It’s cheap.  I promise.

Thursday Threads.  Get used to them.
