Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by The Purple Booker.
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!
This is my choice of the day:
Kindred Spirits – Book 5 of the Gabriel Ash and Hazel Best series by Jo Bannister
50% Severick shrugged. ‘Nobody said it would be easy. Find a line of enquiry and I’ll try to help. But now right now. Right now I’m ready for my tea.’ He headed determinedly for the door and Gorman moved aside to let him pass. ‘I have it on good authority it’s Black Forest gateau for afters. I’d invite you to stay but…’
‘You might accept.’
BLURB: A kidnap attempt outside the school gates in broad daylight convinces Gabriel Ash that his renegade wife is trying to steal their sons from him. Only the intervention of his friend Constable Hazel Best kept them safe. It’s a simple if alarming explanation, but is it the truth? Hazel uncovers disturbing information about another crime, the repercussions of which are still threatening innocent lives seventeen years later.
Once again Hazel finds herself at loggerheads with her superiors. Did they really conspire to protect a murderer? And this time she isn’t getting the support she needs from Ash. She’d thought they were kindred spirits: now she’s not sure what his motives are.
I was overdue for an interesting, well-written whodunit featuring sympathetic protagonists. Just as well I spotted this arc on my TBR pile waiting for me to get around to it. So far it’s been a joy and as long as the ending is well handled, it should continue to be so. The review will appear on or around 1st September when Kindred Spirits is due to be released.
I’m glad you’re enjoying it, Sarah. Sounds fun and that excerpt got a chuckle out of me.
My TT from The Cottages On Silver Beach
Thank you, Laura – yes, there is also plenty of story and tension in amongst the humour:)
I’m not familiar with the series, but I do love the bookstore on the cover!
This isn’t a series I know, either:)). I’ve done my usual trick of crashing midway through…
A new to me series. Glad you are enjoying it.
Thank you, Nise. I haven’t read any of the others in this series, either…
I’m not familiar with this series but it does sound good. This week I have Through the Fire by Katie Ruggle from my review stack. Happy reading!
Oh it is, Kathy – thank you for swinging by:).
I love the sound of this one. Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “THREE DAYS MISSING”
Thank you, Laurel – if you like an enjoyable police procedural then this one is great fun.
What Tammy said – you have to love a cover with a bookstore.
I know! It was one of the reasons why I bought this one…
I would definitely stay for Black Forest gateau. 😀 Glad to see you’re enjoying the book so far!
Yes, this is great fun and I love the way the story is unspooling.
It’s the first I’ve heard of this series. Good teaser though. That cake would definitely be tempting. My Teaser
Yes… Black Forest gateau is definitely worth turning up for! And this is a great book – though I’ve done my usual trick of crashing midway into this series – not that it’s proved to be a problem.
Sounds like a whodunit with some humor in it based on that teaser. I’m intrigued!
As well as plenty of tension and an action-filled denouement…
I didn’t know about this meme. It sounds like great fun, I should start participating. Top Ten Tuesdays can be a bit too time consuming and I can’t always come up with 10 things so I haven’t been doing it much. Teaser Tuesdays sounds more like my thing!
It is fun:). And I’ve got hold of some great authors and books after hearing other bloggers’ thoughts on them.
The book has potential, Excellent breview (as usual!)
Thank you, Rae:))
