Teaser Tuesday



This is my first attempt at Teaser Tuesday. I enjoy the weekly meme, so I decided it was time to jump on the wagon. I am not sure that this will be a regular post, but I am happy to participate this week!

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books And A Beat.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• 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!

My Teaser

“A few months ago, when she’d first logged on to her Case Not Closed, she’d finally read her mother’s coroner’s report.”

“She had to be done with him.”

Pg 264, The Amateurs by Sara Shepard
Genre: YA Mystery

*I just started this title and opened to a page I have not read. Since it is a mystery, I reached for two shorter sentences to avoid potential spoilers for myself as well, and well, keep it mysterious 😉

As soon as Seneca Frazier sees the post on the Case Not Closed website about Helena Kelly, she’s hooked. Helena’s high-profile disappearance five years earlier is the one that originally got Seneca addicted to true crime. It’s the reason she’s a member of the site in the first place.

So when Maddy Wright, her best friend from the CNC site, invites Seneca to spend spring break in Connecticut looking into the cold case, she immediately packs her bag. But the moment she steps off the train in trendy, glamorous Dexby, things begin to go wrong. Maddy is nothing like she expected, and Helena’s sister, Aerin Kelly, seems completely hostile and totally uninterested in helping with their murder investigation.

But when Brett, another super user from the site, joins Seneca and Maddy in Dexby, Aerin starts to come around. The police must have missed something, and someone in Dexby definitely has information they’ve been keeping quiet.

As Seneca, Brett, Maddy, and Aerin begin to unravel dark secrets and shocking betrayals about the people closest to them, they seem to be on the murderer’s trail at last. But somewhere nearby the killer is watching . . . ready to do whatever it takes to make sure the truth stays buried.

  1. I love this feature and I keep intending to add it to my Tell Me Tuesday post and forget every week. Maybe I will go back and add it today and link up. A lot of bloggers are reading this book right now. I am not a mystery lover, but I am still curious about what people will think about it. I really like the simplistic cover art.

  2. I applaud you for being brave enough to flip through the pages while not having read it yet! My eyes will always get caught on a sentence that will totally spoiler the shit out of the rest of the story :’). So good job here! And I’m intrigued now as well *strokes chin*

  3. Now that’s a real teaser. What’s in the coroner’s report? It’s not always easy though sometimes it tells not enough, sometimes too much. I’ve wanted to do it too a few months ago but couldn’t decide on the teaser.. there are so many sentences in a book 😉 so I forfeited.


    1. Yes! I discover them through various blogs I follow. If you are on Goodreads you can find them in groups as well 😊 A few of my favorite bloggers do Face Off Friday and WWW Waiting on Wednesday. If you search those you should be able to find some posts with more info 😊
