Teaser Tuesday: August 25th

Tuesday already??  That last week seemed to fly, but then again drag on.  I’m still reading the book I teased last week – The Murderer’s Daughter by Jonathan Kellerman.  Great book, just long!  Almost done!  AND I just sent my firstborn to Kindergarten – how did that happen!!??  (And I’m still like 6 book reviews behind!)

So for this week I’m going to pick a true random teaser from my next read – The Good Neighbor by A.J. Banner, one of the August Kindle First choices, releasing 9/1/15.  Click on book or see description below.

“I grabbed my cell phone from the nightstand, punched in 911.  My fingers trembled; I thought I might faint.  An operator’s nasal voice came on the line.  “Shadow Cover 911, where’s your emergency?”

What do you think?  Pretty vague – where’s it going to go??  Even I don’t know yet! Please leave your teaser in the comments and thanks for coming by today!

Book Description:

From a phenomenal new voice in suspense fiction comes a book that will forever change the way you look at the people closest to you…

Shadow Cove, Washington, is the kind of town everyone dreams about—quaint streets, lush forests, good neighbors. That’s what Sarah thinks as she settles into life with her new husband, Dr. Johnny McDonald. But all too soon she discovers an undercurrent of deception. And one October evening when Johnny is away, sudden tragedy destroys Sarah’s happiness.

Dazed and stricken with grief, she and Johnny begin to rebuild their shattered lives. As she picks up the pieces of her broken home, Sarah discovers a shocking secret that forces her to doubt everything she thought was true—about her neighbors, her friends, and even her marriage. With each stunning revelation, Sarah must ask herself, Can we ever really know the ones we love?

Teaser Tuesday: August 18th

Happy Tuesday!!  Yep – I’ve been MIA.  Call it summer break.  Someday I’ll catch up, I still have been reading a ton.  Since I last teased – I’ve finished 5 books – all receiving a 4-5 bone rating.  So I really do need to share!

Started another one last night and I’m already hooked.  It’s dark and twisted already and I can’t wait to see where it goes!  AND it releases today!

“Her days were spent nurturing others, she deserved to feel this good.  To feel herself – a discrete person, separated from the universe by her skin, her mental boundaries, delectable spikes of sensation and pleasure.
Random Leaps into bottomless pits of possibility.”

Book Description:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling creator of the acclaimed Alex Delaware series comes a tour de force standalone novel that illustrates perfectly why “Jonathan Kellerman has justly earned his reputation as a master of the psychological thriller” (People).
 
A brilliant, deeply dedicated psychologist, Grace Blades has a gift for treating troubled souls and tormented psyches—perhaps because she bears her own invisible scars: Only five years old when she witnessed her parents’ deaths in a bloody murder-suicide, Grace took refuge in her fierce intellect and found comfort in the loving couple who adopted her. But even as an adult with an accomplished professional life, Grace still has a dark, secret side. When her two worlds shockingly converge, Grace’s harrowing past returns with a vengeance.
 
Both Grace and her newest patient are stunned when they recognize each other from a recent encounter. Haunted by his bleak past, mild-mannered Andrew Toner is desperate for Grace’s renowned therapeutic expertise and more than willing to ignore their connection. And while Grace is tempted to explore his case, which seems to eerily echo her grim early years, she refuses—a decision she regrets when a homicide detective appears on her doorstep.
 
An evil she thought she’d outrun has reared its head again, but Grace fears that a police inquiry will expose her double life. Launching her own personal investigation leads her to a murderously manipulative foe, one whose warped craving for power forces Grace back into the chaos and madness she’d long ago fled.
