THE MEMORY BOX by Eva Lesko Natiello 

 FREE July 29-31, 2014

Houston Writers Guild 2014 Manuscript award 

 
What would you do if you searched your own past and uncovered something shocking?

In this gripping domestic thriller, a group of privileged suburban moms amuse themselves by Googling everyone in town, digging up dirt to fuel thorny gossip. Caroline Thompson, devoted mother of two, is relieved to hear that her name appears only twice, citing her philanthropy. However, a delayed pang of insecurity prods Caroline to Google her maiden name—which none of the others know.

The hits cascade like a tsunami. Caroline’s terrified by what she reads. An obituary for her sister, JD? That’s absurd. With every click, the revelations grow more alarming. They can’t be right. She’d know. Caroline is hurled into a state of paranoia—upending her blissful family life—desperate to prove these allegations false before someone discovers they’re true.

The disturbing underpinnings of The Memory Box expose a story of deceit, misconceptions, and an obsession for control. With its twists, taut pacing, and psychological tenor, Natiello’s page-turning suspense cautions:  Be careful what you search for.

See what reviewers are saying:

In this fast-paced thrill ride, the mundane life of a suburban mom becomes a terrifying nightmare. After Caroline Thompson accidentally stumbles on startling information, both the life she’s carefully crafted for herself and her sanity seem to unravel.

Caroline’s psyche is jarred, then jostled, then completely disintegrates as fragments of her… Continue reading

I read this book a few months ago, and I still find myself thinking about it…I think that is pretty telling of a good book. The bad ones you’ll forget, but the great ones stick with you. Don’t begin this book unless you have a free afternoon ahead of you, because you will find it very hard to put down. Excellent read!

See what reviewers are saying:

“This was a good one, let’s start by saying that. From the first few pages, I could tell that I would enjoy the writing of this killer thriller. The most important thing for me when I read a book is the quality of the prose and the ability of an author to create a scene so vivid that I want to re-read descriptions because they are so tangible, packed with metaphors, and unique in a way that other author’s have simply never thought of before ….I am pretty good at predicting where books are headed, but Belle Chasse kept me guessing. More importantly, I knew that the author wasn’t predictable, but I was still encouraged to lay my own predictions on the prose, hoping to be right, but equally pleased when Lovejoy pulled the rug out and unveiled something that changed the game completely.

All in all, this book must have taken an extreme level of outlining and thought… Continue reading

Retirement is a time for knitting, gardening, and an occasional quiet lunch with friends, according to Kathleen Williamson. Her sister Andrea has an altogether different point of view. When the sisters go to the Canaan Valley to search for paintings mentioned in a document found in an old hotel once owned by their grandparents—paintings that might be Monets—Andrea immediately becomes involved in tracking down a murderer. Kathleen would much rather be looking for the paintings, but she goes along with Andrea, since the victim was their hotel-keeper, murdered just down the hall from their room. The question is: Does the murder have something to do with the elusive paintings? There are many clues and many suspects, including hotel staff, valley residents, and the mysterious foreigners who come from the Eastern Seaboard for skiing. There are also many types of danger—icy roads, sub-zero temperatures, and a killer who doesn’t care how many people die in the attempt to make sure the right ones do.
