Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purple Booker. If you want to join in grab your current read, flick to a random page, select two sentences (without spoilers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments of The Purple Booker.
This week my teaser comes from Frozen Charlotte by Alex Bell, a rather creepy YA horror story about the dangers of spending the holidays with distant relatives (just kidding 😀 ). There’s a creepy old house near the edge of a cliff, strange noises, little dolls that may be evil and some very suspicious behavior from pretty much everyone. All the ingredients you need for the perfect scary story.
I should add my teaser isn’t part of the main story but a little bit of a song that’s used at the start of each chapter.
He took her hand in his,
Oh God! Twas cold and hard as stone,
He tore the mantle from her face,
Cold stars upon it shone.

We’re waiting for you to come and play.
Dunvegan School for Girls has been closed for many years. Converted into a family home, the teachers and students are long gone. But they left something behind…
Sophie arrives at the old schoolhouse to spend the summer with her cousins. Brooding Cameron with his scarred hand, strange Lilias with a fear of bones and Piper, who seems just a bit too good to be true. And then there’s her other cousin. The girl with a room full of antique dolls. The girl that shouldn’t be there. The girl that died.

The creep factor of antique dolls draws me in…and even though I collect dolls, I very carefully avoid putting guests in a room with them. LOL.
Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “THE GOOD DAUGHTER”

I wasn’t sure in the beginning but I can confirm it is definitely creepy. I’ve moved on to the prequel today Charlotte Says and am enjoying it even more
The cover is creepy and it makes me wonder how dolls figure into the story.
