Spoiler Alert! SLO NightReaders Book Discussion – Sins of the Past

In August we read a mystery novel by Susan Tuttle.

Sabrina Compton’s life was almost perfect with her adored husband—until the day she returns from shopping to find him brutally slaughtered. Her whole identity is shattered, and the blows keep coming in the guise of an FBI agent who destroys the memories that were all she had to hold onto. The story moves from Buffalo, New York to a barrier island off the coast of South Carolina, where a deadly confrontation threatens her life. Will she find the inner strength to survive, or will the sins of her husband’s past destroy her, too?

Here are some questions for you, NightReaders!

1. The main character, Sabrina, learns that everything she knew about her husband was a lie. How would you feel if you discovered that the person you thought you knew the best was not that person at all?

2. Do you think Charlie loved Sabrina? Do you think his new life was a reflection of the new, better person he had become? How much can a person change?

3. Which character was your favorite? Why?

4. What was the biggest surprise or plot twist for you?

5. If you could ask Susan a question, what would it be? Go ahead, she might answer it for you!

THE FIRST ONE TO COMMENT WILL WIN A BOOK BY SLO NIGHTWRITER EVELYN COLE!

Thank you for reading and don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the September book reveal!

SLO NightReaders – August Pick

Sins of the Past

Sabrina Compton’s sheltered life is shattered when her beloved husband is brutally slaughtered. And though their home has been ransacked, nothing appears to be missing. Unable to face the memories the house holds, Sabrina flees to her great-grandmother’s cottage on Gaffe Island, off the coast of South Carolina. But the peace she tries to recover there is crushed by the revelations of an intrusive FBI agent, and her life is forever altered by the weight of her husband’s devastating betrayal. As a hurricane bears down on Gaffe Island, she discovers her husband’s killer is now after her. Will Sabrina survive both the storm and the killer’s rage? Will the presence of the F.B.I. agent be enough to protect her? Or are the sins of the past destined to destroy her, too?
