HE STARTED IT by Samantha Downing – SPOTLIGHT

Author Samantha Downing thrilled readers with her debut novel, THE LOVELY WIFE. It won the Edgar Award and was called a must read by nearly all magazines last year. Now she’s out with her second novel, HE STARTED IT (Berkley) and its called “The thriller we’re most excited to stay up with all night.” ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

Beth, Portia, and Eddie Morgan haven’t all been together in years. And for very good reasons—we’ll get to those later. But when their wealthy grandfather dies and leaves a cryptic final message in his wake, the siblings and their respective partners must come together for a cross-country road trip to fulfill his final wish and—more importantly—secure their inheritance.

But time with your family can be tough. It is for everyone.

It’s even harder when you’re all keeping secrets and trying to forget a memory—a missing person, an act of revenge, the man in the black truck who won’t stop following your car—and especially when at least one of you is a killer and there’s a body in the trunk. Just to name a few reasons.

But money is a powerful motivator. It is for everyone.

​When I was a kid, my mom brought me to the library every two weeks. I checked out a stack of new books and new worlds. The best thing was becoming so absorbed in a book I couldn’t put it down. I walked around with it in front of my face, I took it to the bathroom, the kitchen, the book came with me wherever I went. I tripped, ran into walls and stubbed my toes because I never watched where I was going.

This is why I write. I want to tell stories that make people walk into walls

  1. Love it! I can relate to the nose I’m a book since early childhood. In fact I was reading at age 4. Thanks for this opportunity!

  2. The book sounds interesting. I certainly can relate to reading at a young age. I had my first library card when I was in kindergarten. My mother took me to the library every week. I haven’t stopped reading since then.
