Quotes: The Arrangement by Suzanne Forster #Quotes #RomanticSuspense #Mystery #Romance

As a kid there’d been times when she wondered why she’d been born. It sounded self-pitying, and she wasn’t proud of those black moods, but she had honestly felt like a cosmic joke. The very same question came to her now. Why had she been born? To end up like this? She knew that some lives were visited with more pain than others, but she didn’t understand how that worked, how pain got dealt out. How much was enough? An eternity? Because that’s what it felt like she was facing now. The Arrangement, Suzanne Forster Continue reading Quotes: The Arrangement by Suzanne Forster #Quotes #RomanticSuspense #Mystery #Romance

Quotes: Mansfield Park by Jane Austen #Quotes #Classics #Fiction #Historical #BritishLiterature #Romance

Fanny spoke her feelings. “Here’s harmony!” said she; “here’s repose! Here’s what may leave all painting and all music behind, and what poetry only can attempt to describe! Here’s what may tranquillize every care, and lift the heart to rapture! When I look out on such a night as this, I feel as if there could be neither wickedness nor sorrow in the world; and there certainly would be less of both if the sublimity of Nature were more attended to, and people were carried more out of themselves by contemplating such a scene.” Mansfield Park, Jane Austen “If any … Continue reading Quotes: Mansfield Park by Jane Austen #Quotes #Classics #Fiction #Historical #BritishLiterature #Romance

Quotes: Beautiful Lies (Ridley Jones #1) by Lisa Unger #Quotes #MysteryThriller #Suspense

You’re driving on the highway and an eighteen wheeler in front of you kicks up a little rock, which hits your windshield with a surprising, loud snap. That stone, probably no bigger than the nail on your little finger, leaves a tiny, almost invisible chip. And even though at first you can barely see it, eventually it’s going to spider. That minuscule rupture has created fissures that compromise the stability of the whole. Eventually, everything you see through it will become fractured and broken, and another blow, however small, might cause the entire thing to collapse in a deadly, slicing … Continue reading Quotes: Beautiful Lies (Ridley Jones #1) by Lisa Unger #Quotes #MysteryThriller #Suspense

Quotes: A Traitor to Memory (Inspector Lynley #11) by Elizabeth George #Quotes #MysteryThriller #DetectiveFiction #Crime #Suspense

Life wasn’t a continnum of events, although it wore the guise of exactly that. Instead, it was actually a carousel. In infancy, one mounted a galloping pony and started out on a journey during which one assumed that circumstances would change as the expedition continued. But the truth of life was that it was an endless repetition of what one had already experienced . . . round and round and up and down on that pony. And unless one dealt with whatever challenges one was meant to deal with along the route, those challenges appeared again and again in one form … Continue reading Quotes: A Traitor to Memory (Inspector Lynley #11) by Elizabeth George #Quotes #MysteryThriller #DetectiveFiction #Crime #Suspense
