Teaser Tuesday #114: One True Thing by Nicole Hayes

Welcome to Teaser Tuesdays.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read

2. Open to a random page

3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page 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!)

4. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My current read is One True Thing by Nicole Hayes and my two lines are from page 254 of 400

Mum lifts a shoulder. 'Probably, but I can't do it to him. He has to be ready. I've tried and tried. I won't make him go through this just to save my own backside.'

One True Thing by Nicole Hayes 


When is a secret not a secret? When your whole life is public.

Frankie is used to being a politician's daughter, but it's election time, so life's crazier than usual. Add a best friend who's being weirdly distant, a brother to worry about, and the fact that Frankie's just humiliated herself in front of a hot guy - who later turns up at band practice to interview her about her music.

Jake seems to like Frankie - really like her. But then everything crumbles. Photos appear of Frankie's mum having secret meetings with a younger man - and she refuses to tell the public why. With her family falling apart around her, Frankie is determined to find out the truth - even if it means losing Jake.

  1. I love the cover and synopsis for this one! The teaser gives me a good idea of who the young man is to her mum though. :-)

  2. This sounds an interesting setup... Hope the rest of the book is as enjoyable! Here is my fantasy offering:

  3. The premise caught my attention more than the teaser.

  4. At first glance it looked like a pass but after reading the synopsis I might change my mind. :-)

  5. That sounds interesting. Here's my teaser:

  6. I haven't heard of this book before but it sounds really good. My YA teaser this week comes from The Mystery of Hollow Places by Rebecca Podos. Happy reading!
