#2023MostAnticpiated - The Last Tale of the Flower Bride


My #2023MostAnticipated event continues with a book that sounds magical and also happens to be the adult debut of a beloved young adult author. 

The Last Tale of the Flower Bride by Roshani Chokshi is next to be featured from my list and it is certainly an intriguing sounding read. It sort of have elements that kind of make it sound like it was inspired by Bluebird (except gender bent) 

This is one where I hightly recommend reading the Goodreads synopsis. It's vague enough but gives you plenty of details to get excited about.
A sumptuous, gothic-infused story about a marriage that is unraveled by dark secrets, a friendship cursed to end in tragedy, and the danger of believing in fairy tales--the breathtaking adult debut from New York Times bestselling author Roshani Chokshi.

Once upon a time, a man who believed in fairy tales married a beautiful, mysterious woman named Indigo Maxwell-Casteñada. He was a scholar of myths. She was heiress to a fortune. They exchanged gifts and stories and believed they would live happily ever after--and in exchange for her love, Indigo extracted a promise: that her bridegroom would never pry into her past.

But when Indigo learns that her estranged aunt is dying and the couple is forced to return to her childhood home, the House of Dreams, the bridegroom will soon find himself unable to resist. For within the crumbling manor's extravagant rooms and musty halls, there lurks the shadow of another girl: Azure, Indigo's dearest childhood friend who suddenly disappeared. As the house slowly reveals his wife's secrets, the bridegroom will be forced to choose between reality and fantasy, even if doing so threatens to destroy their marriage . . . or their lives.

Combining the lush, haunting atmosphere of Mexican Gothic with the dreamy enchantment of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, The Last Tale of the Flower Bride is a spellbinding and darkly romantic page-turner about love and lies, secrets and betrayal, and the stories we tell ourselves to survive.
The Last Tale of the Flower Bride releases February 14, 2023 and preorder links are available wherever you like to preorder your books.
