TEASER TUESDAYS — NOV. 23

 

Good morning, and welcome to Teaser Tuesdays, hosted by Should Be Reading.  We gather here to share excerpts from our current reads.

Here’s how it works:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Today I’m sharing a snippet from The Dead Lie Down, by Sophie Hannah.

Here’s a tidbit from AmazonHannah seamlessly melds the police procedural with a gothic-inspired whodunit….

 

 

Teaser:  Nobody had ever asked Olivia Zailer to list her least favourite words, but if they had, ‘logic’ and ‘research’ might well have been among them, suggestive as they were of excessive amounts of time and effort.  Yet here she was, immersed in both and even quite enjoying it. p. 279

What tidbits did you find today?  I hope you’ll stop by and share.

    1. Oh, I agree, Beth…that line caught my attention, too. And so far, as I’m reading, it’s the kind of book that is more than a mystery. There’s that sense of something very eerie hovering like a dark cloud.

      I am loving it!
