Wishbone by Brooklyn Hudson #atozchallenge

Just when I thought the A to Z April Blogging Challenge 2013   would go on forever, it is nearly over! What did you think of it? Did it benefit your blog? I’m co-hosting it on Amlokiblogs, so drop me a comment there if you have something to say about the challenge itself. On this blog, I’ve been featuring mostly indie-published book excerpts for all of April. I love reading, and supporting author-friends, and this is a good way to do both.

Today, for W, I give you a suspense-thriller: Wishbone by Brooklyn Hudson.


Elevator Pitch: A Manhattan power couple survive a tragedy and attempt a fresh start only to be plagued by unexplained and disastrous occurrences…be careful what you wish for.


Rachael felt lightheaded, working quickly with one free arm; the other still balancing her confused and curious 18 month old. Using her daughter as bait, she knew she would have only seconds before the baby began to wail. She turned away and rushed for the coop door. She pressed her back up against the wall hiding just beside it. The baby whimpered as Rachael created distance between them. The whimper became a whine, and then an explosive cry.

Rachael locked eyes with her little girl and thought instantly to run to her, but it was too late. The door swung open, nearly crushing Rachael against the wall. Sarah’s eyes fell on the toddler, crying and surrounded by hay bails. Her head cocked, she took a slow step in the direction of the baby. Rachael came up behind her.

    A great read! The quality of Ms. Hudson’s writing, her storytelling, the characters, all excellent. I highly recommend Wishbone to anyone who has not had the pleasure of reading it.

    I read Wishbone months ago and loved it! Still waiting for Wishbone II. Can’t get the characters out of my head. Ms Hudson has a way of describing scenes so you almost feel like it’s a movie.

    WISHBONE is the best book I’ve read in ages! Brooklyn Hudson has a gift many authors only dream of. I can’t recommend WISHBONE often enough!

    Wish I had started blogging earlier because I am kinda in love with this challenge! The books sounds great and really appreciate the idea of exposing lesser knowns books, they’re usually gems that no one knows about. Thanks for sharing, I really enjoy your blog (my bank account doesn’t though, too many good books 😉

    Suspence is really good. It creates more fear than blood can ever hope to. I’m not going to lie though, I came here because I thought you might be talking about the TV show and dog called Wishbone.
