My teaser this week is from Twisted: The Girl Who Uncovered Rumplestilskin's Name by Bonnie M. Hennessy .




No one noticed the unfamiliar hitch in Maeve’s chest or the way her eyes widened. The knot that had formed in her chest weeks ago when the Duke settled his crosshairs on Aoife tightened, threatening to choke her usual ease. Hiding behind a thin layer of calm, she raised her glass to her latest guest and his entourage. He taunted her with a wicked smile. 


An old tale tells the story of how a little man named Rumpelstiltskin spun straw into gold and tricked a desperate girl into trading away her baby. But that’s not exactly how it happened. 

The real story began with a drunken father who kept throwing money away on alcohol and women, while his daughter, Aoife, ran the family farm on her own. When he gambled away everything they owned to the Duke, it was up to her to spin straw into gold to win it all back. 

With her wits and the help of a magical guardian, she outsmarted the Duke and saved the day. 

Well almost…

Her guardian suddenly turned on Aoife and sent her on a quest to find his name, the clues to which were hidden deep in the woods, a moldy dungeon, and a dead woman’s chamber. 

This is not the tale of a damsel in distress, but a tenacious, young woman who solved a mystery so great that not even the enchanted man who spun straw into gold could figure it out. 

Not until Aoife came along.
