I’m honored to be on the launch team for Tosca Lee’s latest thriller, The Line Between. I have to say, I feel like every book Lee releases is my new favorite. I was a little hesitant with this one at first though, I must admit.
If you know me at all, you know how much I love pigs. They’re just so dang cute! So when the book opens with pigs, I’m thrilled. They aren’t just any pigs, they’re my favorite kind of pig, mangalista (google them, you won’t be disappointed). They’re furry and look like a pig had an all too friendly encounter with a sheep. I hear they’re pretty tasty too!
So I’m reading about my favorite kind of pigs and getting excited about where this book is heading. One of the pigs is named Petunia. I had a stuffed pig in college that was named Petunia (don’t judge me, I’m sure you brought weird things to college too!). Poor Petunia got pig-napped and held for ransom. I’m sorry to say that the Petunia in this story didn’t get off that easily.
The glorious story about the mangalista pigs of course takes a horrible turn because this is, after all, a thriller. So, a little scarred for life and slightly traumatized, I press on and keep reading.
I forced myself to put the book down about 1:00 in the morning only because I had to work the next day. As soon as I got home from work the following day I finished devouring this delicious read.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
An extinct disease has re-emerged from the melting Alaskan permafrost to cause madness in its victims. For former apocalyptic cult member Wynter Roth, it’s the end she’s always been told was coming.
When 22 year-old Wynter Roth is cast out of self-contained doomsday cult New Earth, a mysterious outbreak of rapid early onset dementia is spreading across the nation.
As she struggles to start over in a world she’s been taught to regard as evil, Wynter finds herself face-to-face with the apocalypse she’s feared all her life, convinced she’s made a terrible mistake. Until the night her sister shows up with a set of medical samples key to decoding the disease and Wynter learns there’s something far more sinister at play.
Now, as the power grid fails and the country descends into chaos, Wynter must find a way to get the samples to a lab in Colorado. Uncertain who to trust, she takes up with former military man Chase Miller, who has his own reasons for wanting to get close to the samples in her possession, and to Wynter herself.
Filled with action, conspiracy, romance, and questions of whom—and what—to believe, The Line Between is a high-octane story of survival and love in a world on the brink of madness. (Back cover copy)

You guys, I loved this book. Lee has such a talent for writing characters I fall in love with. I forget they’re not real people and when I remember I get a little sad.

Have you read The Line Between? What did you think?
Until next time,
“Tosca Lee’s new thriller isn’t for the faint of heart! A little too close to reality, this deliciously suspenseful read will keep you up all night. “The Line Between” should come with a warning label as I caught myself forgetting to breathe more than once! Lee’s writing is realistic and beautiful, as usual. I found myself rereading lines just so I could enjoy them one more time. I’m already hungry for the sequel, and bacon!” ~Josie Siler
Note: I was given an advanced reader copy of The Line Between through Net Galley for my honest opinion. I was not paid and opinions are my own.
